Introducing the Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster
If you are looking for a stylish two-seat convertible which offers high-levels of comfort and refinement, as well as offering a range of smooth and powerful engine choices, then the Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster is certainly worth considering. Discover more about this refined roadster below.
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 and 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 a fine choice.
Interior and Technology
Some roadsters can feel rather uncomfortable when you climb inside the interior. 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 offer fine comfort when climbing into the interior. Luxury material choice is also used to ensure a fine driver and passenger experience. Leather and high quality plastics are feature too, along with brushed metal air vents which add to the comfort and refinement.
There is also a clear set of instrument clusters and a central infotainment display. The cockpit focuses on the driver and gives just enough luxury to not distract the driver from the drive at hand.
Economy 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.

The other engine available for the SL Roadster is an even more powerful V8 petrol engine, producing 455hp. Performance is therefore enhanced ensuring that the 0-62mph has been reduced even further to just 4.3 seconds. This particular engine can also return up to 26mpg.
