Teaser for Mercedes SL-Class Facelift Shows AMG GT-Inspired Styling

The Mercedes SL-Class facelift has been teased sporting a revamped front end, and it will officially debut at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show.

Following in the footsteps of other recent Mercedes-Benz models, the SL-Class will get its front end revamped to fit in with the German automaker’s new design language. The next-generation model isn’t expected to arrive until 2021, so Mercedes opted to give it a facelift before its styling became entirely outdated. The luxury roadster’s design is heavily inspired by the new Mercedes-AMG GT, sporting smoother and curvier body lines throughout.

The headlights have also been slimmed down, while the front grille is more upstanding and prominent, like other recent Mercedes-Benz models. In the rear, Mercedes has also updated the tail lights and bumper, while the interior receives a new and larger infotainment screen.

Along with the facelift, expect Mercedes to give the SL-Class updated engines borrowed from other vehicles in the current lineup. Performance should be increased across the board as well as fuel economy.
