That’s all we know about the new generation of the Mercedes-Benz SL 2022 roadster

As part of this article, we have collected all the “spy” images of the new generation of the German roadster. The presentation of the long-awaited news is scheduled for next year.

We can say with confidence that the Mercedes SL (Sport Leicht) roadster remains one of the most important cars of the German automaker. Despite numerous rumors that the brand management decided to completely get rid of that model, Mercedes SL will definitely receive a new generation.
   
As part of this article, we hasten to present you the best “spy” images of a completely updated model, which will replace one of the oldest Mercedes cars.

The current version with the R231 index was introduced about eight years ago. Judging by the most “fresh” pictures, the prototype of the novelty has already received a serial body and headlights.

 There is a good reason why Mercedes engineers have properly masked the prototype roof, because there are reports that the next SL will receive a fabric roof instead of a metal one.

 According to available data, a completely new SL will receive a 2 + 2 cabin layout, and I must say that we honestly don’t really believe that, because the cabin of the prototype seen seems rather small. There may be room for only two cramped Porsche 911-style seats, which are primarily intended only for children, due to their small size.

 Mercedes-AMG CEO Tobias Moers has already announced that the next-generation SL will be “much sportier” than its predecessor, adding that it will reflect “the perfect compromise between driving dynamics and comfort.” The car will be available only as a roadster. He also said that the car will be offered with electrified power units.

Not so long ago, we wrote that Mercedes talked about an updated version of the E-class family. A small update for a German business-class car will promise the advent of an expanded list of technologies, as well as the appearance of at least 7 hybrid engines.
