SL-Class Roadster


For generations, few cars have inspired desire like the SL. For 2020, it’s as inspiring as ever. Flowing LED headlamps sweep back from a shapely grille. Sculpted lower body styling wraps around 19-inch wheels. And with its retractable hardtop, it’s perfectly proportioned as a sleek coupe and as a classic open roadster.

The SL’s signature retractable power hardtop transforms from open roadster to cosseting coupe in seconds at up to 25 mph. The standard Panorama roof features a see-through panel and sliding sunshade. For even more viewing options at the touch of a button, exclusive MAGIC SKY CONTROL® lets you darken the overhead glass electronically.

Standard harman/kardon® surround sound delivers 600 watts of lush audio, top-up or down. Innovative FrontBass® subwoofers use body structure elements as acoustic chambers. Or you can immerse yourself in the audible and visible richness of a 1,000-watt, 7.1-channel Bang & Olufsen® BeoSound™ system. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto are standard, too.*

From the everyday to the unexpected, Mercedes me connect helps ease your way. You can control vehicle features from your smartphone. Get help in an emergency. Set up a service appointment. And more, all at no charge for three years, or even longer for many services. You can also add unlimited-data WiFi for a low monthly rate.**

The SL has long led the way in roadster safety: Its pop-up roll bar was an SL first. Today, Intelligent Drive takes driver assistance into a new era. A network of cameras, radar and other sensors can help get you out of danger before you’re in it. While Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® is just one way the SL’s technology can ease your every journey.***

Much as the SL body generates more strength from lighter mass, its biturbo engines rouse more power and torque from less fuel. Both the 362-hp V6 in the SL 450 and the 449-hp SL 550 V8 employ ultra-precise tech like piezoelectric Direct Injection and multispark ignition. Both self-tune with millisecond speed to quicken your 0-60 rush. With rigid yet light components, the 4-wheel multilink suspension teams with semi-active damping for crisp handling with silky smoothness. Industry-advancing Active Body Control® (ABC®) is optional. Its innovative CURVE function leans into corners like a slalom skier to help reduce the g-forces you feel in the cabin when cornering. Light, quick and efficient, the 9G-TRONIC automatic puts a wide range of ratios with shorter steps between them, to keep you on top of the engine’s broad torque curve. DYNAMIC SELECT has a mode for every mood, adapting the throttle, shifting, steering and more from Comfort to Sport+. There’s even a mode you can customize.
