The Mercedes MLC might be grabbing all the headlines but the company is also working on a facelift for the standard model.

The Mercedes MLC might be grabbing all the headlines but the company is also working on a facelift for the standard model.

Early prototypes have been heavily camouflaged but that hasn't stopped Remco Meulendijk from creating some renderings of what the facelifted model could look like.

Drawing cues from the newer models such as the GLA, the rendering depicts a modest makeover that includes a new front bumper, a revised grille and S-Class inspired headlights. We can also see restyled mirrors and some minor modifications to the rear end.

Mercedes has been relatively coy about the model but it could be introduced later this year with a new twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that develops approximately 330 bhp (246 kW) and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque.
