Spy Shots: Revised Mercedes CLS and M-Class Caught Testing
Scheduled to lose its covers at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, alongside its Shooting Brake brother, the facelifted CLS has been spotted once again by our paparazzi, this time wearing very little camouflage over its headlamps and front grille.
We already know that the duct tape is used to hide the new Active Multibeam ILS LED system — a first for Mercedes — and that the new grille will get only one horizontal bar, but it’s good to see new CLS once again before it goes public at the famed British event.
In Mercedes-Benz-related news, our spy photographers have also caught a glimpse of the revised M-Class facelift. The SUV that’s set to be unveiled in the fourth quarter of the year was caught with a covered front fascia but without the piece that was obstructing its front grille on previous occasions.
Make sure you stay tuned to TopSpeed for the full details on the CLS this summer and for more shots of the upcoming M-Class.

Why It Matters
As the facelifted CLS is getting ready to break cover and cross the Pond to the United States. Along with the CLS will be Mercedes’ new 9G-Tronic automatic transmission. This will be our first crack at trying out this efficient gearbox. Additionally, this will be the first revision to the CLS-Class and M-Class since 2012.
