Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Overview
Thanks to four potent engines, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SL Convertibles range from 362 to 621 hp and from 369 to 738 lb-ft of torque. The SL 450 and SL 550 get a fresh 9G-TRONIC® automatic transmission, while the AMG® trims feature an AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® MCT 7-speed. On every SL, up to five new drive modes can be chosen via DYNAMIC SELECT®: Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Individual. The Sport and Sport+ modes fine-tune throttle response, shift points, and optional Active Body Control® suspension with a CURVE function for a rambunctious drive. Meanwhile, AMG®-exclusive ESP® Curve Dynamic Assist helps the SL Roadster whip around corners with precision.
Intuitive Driver-Assistive Features
Whether you’re traveling at night or through stormy weather, the 2017 SL Roadster is built to keep you protected. Adaptive Highbeam Assist automatically adjusts the range of the LED headlamps, while MAGIC VISION CONTROL® uses heated, laser-cut blades to give you a crystal-clear view. On busy Johns Creek roadways, Active Brake Assist monitors the speed at which you approach slow or non-moving vehicles and alerts you if a collision is likely. Designed for in-town driving, Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Function can also brake automatically if its radar or camera systems detect pedestrians or vehicles approaching from either side of an intersection. For comprehensive safety and security, the SL Convertible also includes:
- Pop-up roll bars
- ATTENTION ASSIST®
- NECK PRO® head restraints
- Optional Distance Pilot DISTRONIC® with Steering Pilot
- Optional PRESAFE PLUS®
- And much, much more!
