What alternatives should I consider to a used Mercedes CLS estate?
The CLS Shooting Brake is pretty unique in the class of swoopy estates, but the Jaguar XF Sportbrake is perhaps a close second in terms of style. The boot in the XF is a little bit smaller, but you will be able to pick a Jaguar up for less money than a Mercedes.
If practicality is what you’re after but still want a Mercedes, try an E-Class Estate. It won’t look as cool, perhaps, but it is much more practical because of its boxy shape.
