Mercedes SL-Class Review
Expert Review by Maxabout
The Mercedes SL-Class gives a very supreme and elegant feel to the driver and the passengers. The eye-catching style makes a huge statement if you take it out on the road. The longer and extended body style with the side gills and the bolder paint finishes makes it stand apart through its sporty features. The interior is equally deigned for a very accessible and comfy cabin décor to make the driver experience an exhilarating drive. The nappa leather clad steering wheel and the exclusive wood trims and the aluminium and carbon fiber trims make the whole inside of the car worth driving in. The 3D instrument cluster gives a unique sporty driving experience. AIRSCARF system helps you to adjust optimum preferences inside the car according to the weather conditions. The memory function stores preferred seating adjustments and the lumber supports and individual seat option makes the seating very cozy. COMAND system, Surround Sound system and Direct-Steer System options are also available. The Mercedes SL-Class is also available with the sports package and hence quenches the thirst of the people who want a true sporty driving experience. The flexible lighting system with the Bi-Xenon lamps helps you to see well even in the dark around the turns and corners. The car is provided with ABS and ESP for controlled braking system and stability and traction control.
Mercedes SL-Class comes with only one engine option: 3498cc V6 Petrol Engine. It generates maximum power of 316 bhp at 6500 rpm with maximum torque of 360 nm at 4900 rpm. The engine is mated to 7G-tronic automatic transmission. Mercedes SL-Class features rear-wheel drive with electronic traction system.
Another line of car excellence has been brought as the new SL-Class has been released by Mercedes-Benz in the market. It is obviously a car of class and power as it still carries the signature design features of the models prior only that it has added touches to update its look and function. It mixes the long bonnet with a huge and strong back giving the look of sportiness. Just like the new SLK line, the Mercedes SL-Class highlights a powerful and sculpted yet smooth surface that matches the vehicle’s elegant lines. The ventilation lamps come with chromed paddles that are truly a Mercedes-Benz signature design over the years. It is a touch of class and a sports car in one, with its radiator grille stretching as mark of a new SL line. The car’s famous logo, the Mercedes star, now stretches into the center part that compliments its shape. Aside from the eye-catching logo, the vehicle’s front is also dominated by a vigorous set of slanting headlamps that come with an Intelligent Light System.
The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class has garnered a lot of sales and good feedback. The initial models to get dealerships were the base of the SL-Class line. The first one that benchmarked was SL550. It has been followed months after with other high-performance SL models, the SL63 and SL65. Both of these models come from Mercedes-Benz’s AMG performance line. Talking about standard equipment, the Mercedes SL-Class is rather almost complete with everything. The SL550 model has heated seats, leather upholstery, a location-reading system with that comes with music hard drive, driver-seat memory, genuine sleek wood trim, bi-xenon headlights, and a telescopic steering wheel. The current version of the Mercedes' Command System comes with web applications, and Google Maps functions as well as access to social networking sites like Facebook. Another feature of the Mercedes SL-Class is the Magic Sky Control, a feature which basically adjusts the car roof's panoramic glass pane. Car owners have the option to include features on the SL550 such as the adaptive cruise control, ventilated seats, lane-departure warning, blind-spot alert, rear-view camera, keyless entry and engine start, front and back obstacle detection, and high-tech Bang & Olufsen sound system. With the elective Active Body Control, passengers can control their seats more comfortably. The feature includes improved suspension hardware and regulated new dampers that are made to lessen body lean during turns by approximately 95 percent depending on driver-selectable settings.
Based on tests, the carbon dioxide emissions for Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is at 292.2 grams per kilometre and consumes fuel at an average of 23.4 miles per gallon.
To keep passengers safe all the time, Mercedes SL-Class is packed with safety features. It comes with anti-lock brakes also called as ABS brakes that modulate the brake pressure when a tire has stopped turning around when too much pressure is exerted when braking. As the vehicle’s brake pressure is modulated, the driver is able to turn since the tire can rotate. The stability control feature installed in the SL-Class can detect when the vehicle’s handling controls have been overdone. It lessens engine power and applies brakes to prevent the driver from running out of control over the vehicle which is the common cause of accidents. For added safety, airbags have been put in place as well. The front-impact airbags installed for the driver and front passenger can help protect the occupants’ heads during a frontal car smash. The side impact airbags are also there to protect the upper body during a side impact crash. Overhead airbags have also been put in place in case there of a rollover thus protecting possible major head damages. Knee airbags have been installed as well to protect limbs of the passengers in the event of an accident. The pretensioners or seatbelt pretensioners that mechanically tighten are also proven to prevent possible torso fractures during a collision as they keep occupants in a good seating position. The anti-whiplash head restraints are put to keep the occupants head safe and reduce the chances of having a stroke injury. Aside from physical protection, the Mercedes SL-Class comes with a security system to prevent theft and other cases of vehicle intrusion. The SL-Class is powered with an ignition disable device that stops the car engine from running unless the original manufacturer key is used.
Mercedes SL-Class is available in only one variant: SL350
Shades availabl in Mercedes SL-Class are: Mars Red, Black, Magnetite Black Metallic, Dolomite Brown Metallic, Steel Grey Metallic, Iridium Silver Metallic, Palladium Silver Metallic, Pearl Beige Metallic, Lunar Blue Metallic, Diamond White Metallic and Matte-Finish Shadow Grey Metallic.
