Benefits of Driving a 2012 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Convertible

The SL-Class is a show-stopper in design and performance. Interior luxury is standard, with leather upholstery and wood trim everywhere. The V8 engine can cover 0-60 mph in just over 5 seconds in the base SL550. The SL63 AMG version features intense power and performance and the reputation of Mercedes-Benz backing it all.

What's new for 2012?

For 2012, Mercedes-Benz dropped the SL60 AMG model, leaving only the SL55 and the SL63 AMG. Otherwise, the SL-Class remains pretty much the same as last year's model.

Model Strengths

  • Unmatched roadster styling and performance
  • blistering performance from SL63 AMG

Model Review

The rear-wheel-drive, 2-seater SL550 roadster has a 5.5L V8 engine that makes 382 hp yet achieves a surprising 22 mpg while cruising on the highway, thanks to its driver-adaptive electronic 7-speed transmission. The Optimum Gear program selects the best gear for maximum acceleration or engine braking, while the Comfort setting starts the car in second gear -- or a reverse second gear -- and keeps the rpms low in slippery conditions.
