The Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake has made an appearance once again for a latest round of testing and our spies were on hand to catch these revealing shots. The prototype still wears the minimal amount of camouflage on its rear end, but once again fails to hide any of the styling elements from prying eyes.

The latest model that is set to join Mercedes line-up is aiming to carve out a new niche, much like the original CLS four-door coupe way back in 2004. A preview was displayed for the first time at the Beijing Motor Show in 2010 and we could be treated to the full production unveiling at the same venue. The 2012 show starts at the end of this month.

Power will be generated from an array of petrol and diesel options that have been sourced from its four-door coupe sibling and further down the line an AMG variant is expected to be available.

Whoa!! seriously mixed reviews on the car's styling. lol. I dunno. If I ever had the need for an estate, I wouldn't mind having one of these, but a shooting brake it most definitely isn't. It's not exactly the last word in beauty, but it's kinda different, so in a rather odd way, I quite like it.

Ugly. If I want a MB wagon this size, I'll get a E-class wagon. This is not a shooting brake.

From a side view, it kinda looks like a Honda/Acura crosstour/ZDX. Must say it's NOT a good look.

I don't hate, I don't hate at all, I'm fan of 1st generation of the CLS, but to say this is a pure beauty??? yeah, I don't think so, SL is pure beauty not this

I can't take it anymore! This is an absolute stretch to call this car a shooting brake! Look at it! It's a station wagon! The Ferrari FF and the BMW Z3 Coupes are shooting brakes. It's like Mercedes is putting lipstick on a pig and telling us it's pretty! Sigh..... people will buy it though...
