Photos: 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL

The hugely successful Mercedes-Benz SL roadster gets a refresh for the 2009 model year. In addition to minor exterior styling updates, the cabin tech is improved with a hard-drive-based navigation and music storage system as well as a hot-air neck-warming device for cold-weather open-air driving. While engine choices remain unchanged, performance is enhanced with a variable-ratio steering system.
