Although not confirmed, changes elsewhere will likely include a new LED lighting signature at the rear, while the cabin could bring a larger main display with upgraded COMAND infotainment and Apple Carplay/Android Auto connectivity.
An updated engine range is also likely to feature, along with enhanced driver assistance systems.
