M Class with minor styling updates coming to India next year.

The front fascia gets minor changes in the grille and air intakes.

The front-end sees a new four-bar grille, newly designed air intakes and mildly redesigned headlights. Changes at the rear are almost imperceptible, as the bumper receives a metallic guard save for which there are no other changes observed.

The report states that upgraded trims and upholstery will be seen inside along with Mercedes’s new COMAND infotainment system with a larger screen. Under the hood, details are still scarce. The SUV will likely continue unchanged though the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox could be upgraded to a 9-speed automatic.
