W218 Mercedes-Benz CLS facelift

My, it really is spyshot season! Photographed here by our European spies is the facelifted second-gen Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, believe it or not.

Although it only officially entered the Malaysian scene last year, the incumbent W218 CLS-Class has actually been around for a couple of years now, so a refresh is perhaps timely.

The Shooting Brake in the photos reveals very minor changes to its face – there’s a reworked front bumper, a revised headlamp layout and a diamond-effect grille like the ones you see on higher-trim variants of the A-Class, CLA-Class and S-Class. Round the back, things don’t appear to have changed – but what about the four-door car?

The new-look CLS range may surface sometime in 2014 before going on sale in 2015.
