Car lease customers – The Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake Finally Revealed
It has been a long time coming and the new Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake has finally been revealed to tempt MSG Cars – Car Lease customers into making an order perhaps.
The design of the CLS Shooting Brake is just like the standard CLS, from the grille at the front leading all the way to the top of the windscreen. But that is where the similarities in exterior appearance end though – as the rear has a stretched roofline and windows. The roofline arches all the way to the back beyond the rear wheels, giving the Shooting Brake a unique profile and a unique look on the road that should see interest in placing an order increase as the motor starts to appear on the UK’s roads. Car Lease bad credit consumers in the UK can still look to get approved for the car or van that they want – even if they have already been knocked back by their normal lenders. A specialist approach is required for these cases and so you will be wasting your time by approaching mainstream companies to secure the deal as they simply will send your details to multiple – ‘Prime’ lenders and the end result will be many credit searches on file but no acceptance.
Wraparound tail lights have a chrome bar sitting horizontally in between them at the back and the windscreen is also mounted more upright.
While the CLS Shooting Brake may like big and bulky, that’s probably just an illusion because compared to the standard CLS, the Shooting Brake is only 16mm longer but sit 3mm lower. Practicality is unsurpassed – there’s a maximum storage space of 1,550 liters when the seats are down. When the seats are up, you still have 590 liters of space in the boot.
There is an option of cherry-wood decking for the boot floor with aluminum rails inlaid. Otherwise, carpet is offered as standard.
The rear bench seat comprise of two individual seats with enough space in the middle for a third passenger, though we do not think it would be really comfortable. Everything inside the car is similar to the standard CLS. Five interior colours are offered and you can choose between three kinds of leather and three kinds of exclusive wood trimming so customers can customize the car to their liking. For the first time ever in Mercedes history, porcelain trimming is also offered.
The CLS Shooting Brake comes powered with a choice of two engines – both diesels – when the car is launched this November. The entry level CLS 250 CDI outputs 201bhp with a staggering 500Nm of torque. Economy and emissions wise, the Shooting Brake fares pretty well. It returns 53.3 mpg and emits 139g/km respectively so you can save a bit of coin going to the petrol station less often. However, compared to the standard CLS, the CLS 250 CDI Shooting Brake does lose out by 1mpg in fuel economy and 4g/km in CO2 emissions. Also, due to the extra weight, the car takes 3 tenths of a second longer to hit 0-62mph, bringing the time to 7.8 seconds.
The range topping CLS 350 CDI comes powered by a V6 3.0-liter engine producing 261bhp with 620Nm of torque. Fuel economy is slightly worse than the CLS 350 CDI, coming in at 47mpg and CO2 emission has gone up to 159g/km. The 3.0-liter Shooting Brakes manages 0-62mph in 6.6 seconds, which is about 0.4 seconds slower than the standard CLS.
Both cars will be equipped with an automatic sevens-speed transmission and stop-start is available as standard so if you are interested why not contact MSG Cars and speak with out car lease bad credit team today and see what we can do for you.
