Mercedes-Benz SL Class LATEST UPDATES

The SL-Class from Mercedes is their line of roadsters. SL is derived from German Sport-Leicht, meaning Sports Light. The current generation SL-Class is a convertible with a light Fabric roof. The SL-Class is exclusive to the AMG edition, which means that you won't be getting an SL without the Steroids!

The AMG only SL-Class comes in two variants and a ton of customisation; The SL55 and the SL63. The main difference between the both is their output.

The current generation, the R232, is the newest addition and has helped the SL nameplate with a comeback after nearly two years! The new SL-Class comes with a new fabric roof compared to its predecessors metal roof. The new SL-Class follows the new Mercedes-Benz design philosophy with an aggressive front end and a sleek and snuggly rear end.

Since it is an AMG-exclusive model, it offers many customisation options with wheels, an aerodynamic package and more.

The SL-Class is available in a few shades like Thulite Red, Palladium Silver Metallic and Solar Beam Yellow.

The 7th-gen 2022 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class starts its price range from nearly 1.5cr (ex-showroom). The glorious sounding V8 engines are the SL-Class's main USP.

The leading contenders of the SL-Class are the Bently Continental convertible and the Ferrari Portofino M.

The Mercedes SL comes with an air scarf technology that directly sends cool or warm air from the duct present in the seat.

A dedicated track mode gives the user the information of various race tracks and the nearby tracks with their details.

Various modes like track, Drag, etc., are present, which gives the user its statistics on various parameters.

The Wing opens and adjusts according to the vehicle speed.

A wind deflector lets you ride with the roof down without having them on your face feeling.

The car is good around the corners and offers a good grip.

There are individual settings available for suspension and powertrains.

There is an additional aerodynamic package, which gives a carbon panel for more downforce.

The racing seats provide really good support.

The interior fit and finish are top-notch.

When the drive mode is selected in sport and supersport, the instrument cluster feels rather off, with confusing dials.

The seats offer good support, but it is not comfortable.

The SL, translating to Sports Light, is by no means a light car. It weighs nearly 2 tonnes!

When the roof is put on, the rearview visibility is nearly zero.

The rear seats are practically not usable. It is cramped up in space with literally no headroom on offer.

It doesn't offer practicality like its competition.

The black coloured central console is susceptible to scratches very easily.

The comfort and sport mode setting doesn't seem to make much difference to the suspension set-up.

Mercedes-Benz SL Class EXPERT REVIEWS

The Mercedes SL-Class could be the right car for you if you want a convertible but don't want to compromise on performance. The SL-Class is AMG only, which means whichever trim you choose is not going to be slow.

The SL-Class is loaded with safety features and works flawlessly. With the help of a series of radars, sensors and cameras, you have everything to be safe. The SL-Class comes with the adaptive cruise control system, lane assist and emergency braking. These features are essential for roadsters, as it helps in your safety and for the others on the road. The car is great to drive around and offers a great feel and feedback. The steering is well-calibrated, and the all-wheel-drive system ensures proper traction.

The SL-Class is a premium offering and, compared to its rivals, it is priced much more aggressively. The problem is with its practicality, as it offers very little in-cabin storage but a decent boot space. The so-called rear seat can only be comfortable if you are 1.5m or under. Still, legroom wouldn't be sufficient. The addition of metals to elements like the window switch, paddles, etc., makes the interior look premium. If you are looking for a car for that solo weekend getaway, the SL-Class is the right car for you.
