About this car

The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class might be the most anticipated next generation launch it’s ever known. The Mercedes-Benz website gives a full vehicle profile, but doesn’t allow you to build a model or provide any information on when the new SL will make its debut.

On-spec this vehicle has a lot to offer. It will come in two model variants: the SL450 and the SL550. The SL450 packs a 362-horsepower 3.0-liter turbocharged inline V6 engine capable of finishing the 0-to-60 acceleration sprint in under five seconds. Mercedes reports its mileage at an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city driving and 25 out on the highway.


But what it doesn’t get in fuel economy it makes up for in its interior — despite its smallish, low-styled design it offers ample interior space with fully adjustable seating with heat, ventilation and lumbar support. But trunk storage space is limited, and the instrument panel comes almost over-equipped with buttons and controls for all functions including music and climate control. These make it feel overwhelming compared to the voice-controlled MBUX systems featured in other new Mercedes models.

Safety features, inclusions and add-ons are another mystery: there’s no information out there on what consumers can expect for the upcoming SL450. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
