Spied: Facelifted 2012 Mercedes-Benz GLK

Spy Shots

A few spy shots have come in showcasing a very minor facelift for the Mercedes-Benz GLK SUV. In order to keep up with competitors such as the Audi Q5 and the BMW X3, the German automaker has made some styling improvements. We can tell from these photos that there are new front and rear bumpers along with slightly restyled headlights. Changes are also likely in store for the taillights, although this specific test mule isn't showing any.

There will also likely be some interior updates as well such as material improvements and changes to the satnav/infotainment unit and dash. A new steering wheel is also likely. Sources have also indicated there will also be enhancements made to both engines gearboxes. The refreshed model will be unveiled sometime in late 2012. Photos courtesy of Teamspeed.com.
