Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake

Can you ever really make a five-seat estate car that looks elegant, sporty and still has scope for an Ikea trip? 

Mercedes-Benz has done just that with its curvaceous new CLS Shooting Brake, which utilises aluminium throughout to keep heftiness down. Then there’s the AMG-tuned version (above), with an interior featuring Nappa leather sports seats and steering wheel, and Piano Black lacquer trim.

Among extra luxury options are a cherry-wood boot floor, exterior carbon-fibre package, lightweight 19in AMG triple-spoke alloys, ceramic disc brakes, “V8 Biturbo” badging, illuminated door sill panels, a rear diffuser and sports exhausts with twin chrome tailpipes. In this, you’ll rule the superstore carpark.

Essential because: It’s a practical wagon that won’t make you look like your dad.
