Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Overview

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SL Convertible Puts Categorical Power at Your Fingertips

Starting at $87,050, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SL epitomizes the energetic yet luxuriously equipped roadster. For the SL Convertible, the 2017 model year brings with it new aesthetics and features, including a restyled engine hood, 19-inch wheels, brand logo projection lamps for the exterior mirrors, all-red taillights, and much, much more. Available in new exterior colors, such as Brilliant Blue and designo® Selenite Grey Magno, the SL commands attention wherever it ventures. The 2017 SL Convertible comes in four awe-inspiring trim levels – each offering turbocharged power, sporty handling, and the freedom of the open road.

High-Spirited Performance

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.

Top-Up or Top-Down Comfort

From the entry-level SL 450 to the zenith AMG® SL 65, the SL Roadster comes decked out for the many journeys ahead. In under 20 seconds, the power-retractable hardtop with a built-in panorama roof disappears in the rear bulkhead, yet still leaves 8.5 cubic feet of space in the trunk. The power wind-blocker locks into position within seconds, letting you enjoy top-down cruising with minimal turbulence. Ideal for warm Alpharetta weather, the sun-reflecting leather upholstery astounds with intense colors like Bengal Red and Ginger Beige. Power front seats create and memorize your perfect seating position, while dual-zone climate control features separate controls for you and your passenger.

Offering hours of enjoyment, the following are also included in the SL Convertible’s feature set:

  • COMAND® display with hard-drive navigation
  • Multi-color LED ambient lighting
  • Smartphone Integration with Apple CarPlay®
  • In-dash 6-disc DVD/CD changer and SD card reader
  • Optional KEYLESS GO®
  • Optional 900-watt Bang & Olufsen® BeoSound™ Premium Sound System

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
  • NECK PRO® head restraints
  • Optional Distance Pilot DISTRONIC® with Steering Pilot
  • Optional PRESAFE PLUS®
  • And much, much more!
