2015 Mercedes Benz SL
One of the most iconic models of German car maker, SL, is coming with big changes for 2015 year, compared to last year model. The redesigned model comes with many improvements. For example new chassis, so new one will be much lighter than current model. Also, new 2015 Mercedes Benz SL will get new look totally different of what used from this roadster. German automaker also prepares new variant called SL400, which will replace SL350.
2015 Mercedes Benz SL redesign
The 2015 Mercedes Benz SL will get a whole new chassis, which will be made mainly of aluminum and other lightweight composite materials, so we expect drastic weight loss, which will, at the end, provide much better overall performances of new model. Despite this great improvement, most of the fans are not very satisfied with new SL. Main problem is SL’s new look. German manufacturer decided to make some drastic changes, but the problem is that those changes are not in direction that most of the fans expected, especially when it is about front end.
To make it clear, no one says that it looks bad, but we used on this model to look pretty unique and “independent” from general Mercedes Benz designers philosophy. The 2015 Mercedes Benz SL aligned to the new Mercedes-Benz style of design, which is called “Sensual Clarity”, so nowadays all models look very similar – from lowest A-class to the most expensive models like this one.
