The E450 wagon is available if you're interested in paying about twice as much as the TourX.

It's still a wagon but calling it a shooting brake sounds so much cooooler. Oh look it a Chevy Celebrity wagon, no its a Celebrity Euro Shooting Brake lol.

I’m not buying one; it just has a look that closely resembles the TourX in my garage, outside of the color. It almost looks like some parts would swap over. Makes me wonder if MB contracted out the design.

The CLS X218 shooting brake has been around for awhile so it's in the same design platform.

There are some similarities for sure, but as pointed out, it's more similar to existing MB products than the Opel/Buick.

The difference between a true luxury car and the Buicks is considerable and readily apparent in the attention to detail and assembly quality. I often hear from those who have never owned one that the cost difference is not warranted because another vehicle offers the same features for much less (usually the one they own or are planning to buy). If shopping by spec sheet only, the argument is valid, but if you appreciate things done right rather than done well enough, and translating that to the design, engineering, production and assembly of thousands of parts to create a final product that is exceptional in comparison, the cost difference starts to become more justified. Sure, they have a higher profit margin, but they also put a lot more money into the car. I bought the TourX knowing full well it is lacking in many of the finer details, but knowing that from an overall design and utility standpoint, it's an excellent value (at 25% off MSRP).

No argument.
But the supervisor in our shipping department Picked up a gorgeous Benz 500 Convertible pre owned for less than my TourX.
She got a deal but, as BIL works for Cars.com, still expensive German cars really take a huge depreciation hit in just a few years.

A few months ago, on this forum, it was pointed out to me that a “Shooting Brake” was a Two Door Wagon. The above photos are Four Door Wagons.

Which is it?

Yes, traditionally a shooting brake is a 2 door wagon. But similar to the term "coupe" auto companies are now calling anything with a sloping rear a coupe for sedans or CUVs, or shooting brake for wagons.

In the EU a wagon is also called a estate and yes most shooting brakes are of the 2 door type, but it's a gray area on 4 doors which is probably marketing.

A proper shooting brake

The label derives from the horse drawn carriage days - basically would be enough to take your gear and some friends out for hunting (literally shooting stuff). The auto purist will always refer to the early Rolls Royce’s as the proper shooting brake...candidly a modern SUV or Truck (w/crew cab) would be closer to the intended function...

some good stuff here on the 1910 RR Silver Ghost...

As I’m not a purist, I tend to lean more towards Ferrari’s interpretation with the GTC4Lusso

Actually followed a Mercedes e450 on the way to work yesterday. I’ve always liked the e-class Mercedes wagons - this one was no exception.
