2012 mercedes-benz m-class brochure leak

We haven't seen or heard much about the upcoming 2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class, but that changes effective immediately. Euro mag Motor-Talk apparently got their hands on some brochure photos of the newly refreshed ute well before the good folks at Daimler were ready to release the pics to the public.

The above photo shows that the rear end will receive a new rear fascia, with flatter, more Mercedes-esque taillamps and a revised bumper. The M-Class also looks set to ditch the traditional moonroof in favor of a panoramic topper. More grainy imagery, which is available on the German Car Forum, shows a more aggressive front fascia and newly stylized headlamps. And perhaps the most pronounced changes will come to the cabin of the mid-size crossover, with a far more modern appearance that includes what appear to be richer materials.

We're not entirely sure when the next M-Class will receive it's official debut, but judging from these alleged brochure pics, we're guessing he reveal will come sooner rather than later. Head over to the German Car Forum to see the rest of the leaked brochure pics.
