Introducing the Mercedes-Benz SL
If you are looking for a stylish 2-seater convertible, which offers high-levels of comfort and refinement, as well as a range of smooth and powerful engine choices; the Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster is certainly worth considering.
The SL name is legendary, dating back to the 1950's; today the SL is still as prominent in the Mercedes-Benz range, continuing its legacy as a desirable grand tourer sports car.
From deep within the cabin to every last delicate exterior detail, the SL is immaculately designed and displays pure elegance and luxury.
Thrilling open-top driving experiences joined by the agile dynamics of a sports car, ensure the Mercedes-Benz SL offers the perfect recipe for an excellent grand tourer.
Design and Practicality
The SL name has been around since the 1950s and has always adopted an unmistakable shape. With a long bonnet, low slung body and typical sports car detailing, the latest SL Roadster continues the trend.
This is thanks to a number of dynamic styling details. These include a large grille, more aggressive front bumper design, angular headlights as well as black and chrome trim details.
Despite the SL being a roadster, it still has a metal folding roof; helping with refinement, looks and overall quality. If you are looking for a mature roadster that looks every bit as sleek and attractive as a car of this nature should, the Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster is an excellent choice.
Technology and Safety
Some roadsters can feel rather uncomfortable when you climb inside the cabin, this is due to their dynamic nature, weight-saving initiatives and sports focus. Not the SL.
The SL Roadster manages to succeed as a sporty roadster but also offers exquisite comfort when sat in the sumptuously plush interior. Luxury, premium material choice is used in abundance to ensure an exceptional driver and passenger experience. Leather and high-quality plastics are featured too, along with brushed metal air vents which add to the overall ambience.
There is also a clear set of instrument clusters and a central infotainment display, whilst the cockpit focuses on the driver and gives just enough luxury to not distract the driver from the drive at hand.
Engines and Performance
The Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster has a choice of two powerful petrol engines, which match the luxury grand-touring ability of this fine roadster.
Firstly, a 3.0-litre V6 (SL 400) is offered with 362bhp. The silky-smooth nature of this engine, combined with its high performance ensures it can accelerate from zero to 62mph in just 4.9 seconds. It can also return up to 29.7mpg.
An even more powerful V8 petrol engine is the heart of the SL 500, producing an outrageous 449bhp. Performance is therefore enhanced ensuring that the zero to 62mph time has been reduced to a mere 4.3 seconds. Despite its incredible power, this particular engine manages to return up to 27.4mpg.
