Snapped by CarAdvice's spy photographers while testing near the Arctic Circle, the facelifted Mercedes-Benz ML prototype wears heavy black camouflage on its front end disguising a new bonnet, bumper, single-bar grille and restyled headlights and LED daytime running lights.

A wider rear quarter panel can also be seen along with what appears to be a larger rear window aperture and revised tailgate-mounted spoiler.

Inside, the refreshed ML will receive updates to its infotainment equipment including a large dash-mounted screen and new COMAND controller located between front passengers. A new-look steering wheel is also set to join new door trims and detail finishers.

Engines are expected to mirror the current range’s petrol and diesel line-up, with changes limited to improved performance and efficiency, however a hybrid powerplant and a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6-powered ML400 are both speculated.

The current third-generation Mercedes-Benz ML-Class, priced locally from $82,900, first launched globally in 2011.
