Mercedes-Benz To Give 2017 SL A Brand New Face

Mercedes-Benz To Give 2017 SL A Brand New Face

For the first time after spotting an early prototype of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SL with limited changes last year, our spies caught an advanced tester of the facelifted roadster with modified styling.

Most noticeable is the revamped front end of the hardtop convertible that gains a reshaped hood, the edges of which do not touch the slimmer headlamps, along with a redesigned grille and bumper.

At the rear, this prototype was fitted with full red-cultured tail lamps featuring refreshed graphics, plus revised bumper and exhaust tips.
While Mercedes-Benz engineers made sure to hide the most important aspects of the cabin from prying eyes, this also points to what they're updating, including the design of the steering wheel, instrument panel and center console, which appears to be getting bigger touch screen display and new buttons.

There's no word yet on whether the Germans plan to upgrade the SLs powertrains, though, minor power and efficiency gains should are to be expected.
