Our Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

The 2016, 2015 & 2019 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 38% of the original cost with 67% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2016 SL-Class. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 29.11 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2015 & 2019 SL-Class model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

Own a 2016 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class?

While we would advise holding onto this vehicle for a few years, that's not always the plan. Dealers have access to similar figures so they know that your vehicle has a low risk of depreciation.
