A new prototype for the facelifted 2017 Mercedes-Benz SL has been spied in the midst of testing. As with previous test mules, the camouflage worn by this prototype isn’t excessive and does give us a glimpse at some of the styling modifications.
Kicking things off for the SL facelift will be a new front bumper. That new bumper is pinned to incorporate a modified grille as well as new air intakes and air intake surrounds. Additionally, headlights inspired by those from the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe are expected with the Multibeam LED technology of the facelifted CLS also likely to be made available either as an option or standard.
At the rear, these Mercedes-Benz SL facelift spy shots reveal further changes. For starters, thinner taillights are speculated to be on the cards alongside redesigned exhaust tips and a new bumper. Inside, a number of visual modifications are expected with the COMAND multimedia system the most likely element to be tweaked.
Beyond the visual distinctions, there’s a possibility that the recently launched Mercedes-Benz AMG Sport lineup will extend beyond the C-Class and GLE Coupe into the SL.
