Spy Shot: Mercedes-Benz S-Class Mule Spotted!

Our spy shooters have just reported in with a few images depicting the newly updated Mercedes-Benz S-Class, showing the lightly disguised car in trims ranging from the storming AMG-tuned sedan to the all-new S400 Hybrid. The facelifted cars feature new headlight treatments with LED daytime running lights, revised front and rear bumpers, and a gently updated look for the car’s grille.

Have a closer look at the upcoming range-topping Mercedes in our gallery above, or read on below for the spy shooter’s own words.

Here are some fresh photos of the Mercedes S-Class facelift, while the drivers took some lunch. Optical changes are rather small, with a new graphic on the front lights and integrated LED-daydriving lights. Rear lights will also get LEDs.

Bumpers in both front and rear will get a new shape, with new foglights in the front bumper as well. We also notice a new grille.  Interior will also be slightly different, because these prototypes where covered inside.

Engines will be more fuel efficient, and there also will be a S400 Blue hybrid in the program.

As you can see, the AMG version also gets a facelift.
