Our spies have sent us a fresh batch of photos with the facelifted Mercedes-Benz CLS while undergoing testing ahead of a very possible late 2014 launch.

Our spies have sent us a fresh batch of photos with the facelifted Mercedes-Benz CLS while undergoing testing ahead of a very possible late 2014 launch.

The updated CLS will host slightly modified front and rear bumpers along with what appears to be a light revision of the side skirts. Mercedes-Benz also plans to tweak the headlights and taillights while inside the will be a few minor changes such as a larger COMAND knob and display together with a reshaped steering wheel.

These modifications will be implemented not only in the four-door CLS but also in the Shooting Brake version as well as in the AMG models. The latter will probably carry over the twin-turbo V8 5.5-liter engine rated at 557 HP (410 kW) and 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) which in the range-topping S-Model delivers 585 HP (430 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm).

Expect the updated CLS lineup to be unveiled in the second half of this year or at the beginning of 2015.
