The new dimensional concept with 2+2 seats enables muscular proportions and improves everyday practicality.
The new SL was created on an all-new roadster architecture with a composite aluminium structure. No part of the body shell was adopted from the predecessor or any other model series.
For the first time in 70 years, the SL is available with all-wheel drive: AMG Performance 4MATIC+ distributes the drive force fully variably to the front and rear wheels.
The AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL active anti-roll stabilisation works without anti-roll bars and brings benefits in terms of driving dynamics and comfort.
Rear-axle steering combines agility and stability and is also on board for the first time in an SL.
Two AMG V8 engines at launch. Further engine versions will follow, including as powerful E PERFORMANCE hybrid.
The electro-hydraulic soft top opens or closes fully automatically in around 15 seconds, and both are possible up to 60 km/h.
The multimedia touchscreen can be electrically adjusted in inclination from 12 to 32 degrees.
"Hey Mercedes", the intelligent voice assistant, understands up to 28 languages.
At the market launch, the new SL is available in twelve paint finishes, including five metallic paint finishes, and six MANUFAKTUR colours as well as three different soft top colours.
Digitalisation - eight screen designs can be displayed in the head unit.
