Mercedes M-Class heading out for testing.
With the recent launch of the latest BMW X5 and a new Audi Q7
due to be unveiled at the end of the year, Mercedes is giving its
premium SUV a facelift for 2015 to help it keep up with the competition.
Radical changes are planned both inside and out, with these pictures
showing a new front fascia, including a single-bar grille and what
appears to be slimmer headlights. In profile, the M-Class doesn’t look
that different, although the sills have been revised and the wheel
arches are less aggressively styled.
The rear bumper has also been updated, whereas the taillights are
undisguised here – suggesting they could be carried over for 2015.
What these images don’t tell us is how Mercedes plans to shake things
up under the bonnet.
Alongside retuned versions of the M-Class’
existing powertrains, we should see a new hybrid model to help combat
the forthcoming Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid.
There’s also likely to be a ML 400 variant, featuring a bi-turbo
3-litre V6, which will slot between the 350 AMG Sport and range-topping
It’s likely the M-Class will be unveiled fully later this year, with prices and specs confirmed shortly after. For more details click here.
