2014 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG

What We Like

Bulletproof construction with a seemingly endless array of luxury features; all three variants offer satisfying performance; hard to beat the SL-Class's heritage and brand equity

What We Don't

Lacks the visual appeal of earlier SL models; 3-digit starting prices still have room for further escalation; folding hardtop limits trunk space

What's New in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG?

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is a carryover from the 2013 model year, though the SL65 AMG version gains a 7-speed automatic transmission. 

Which SL 65 AMG is the Best?

Mercedes-Benz's SL-Class may have seemed the safe choice in the premium convertible segment, but the changes to its drivetrain and chassis (particularly in AMG form) make it a genuinely thrilling car to drive. Add its road-trip-friendly ergonomics, quiet cruising and smooth suspension compliance and you've got a 2-seat convertible that feels like it can -- and quite possibly will -- do it all.

How Much Does a 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Cost?

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is available in SL550, SL63 AMG and SL65 AMG trim levels.

The SL550 ($106,700) is powered by a twin-turbocharged, 4.6-liter V8, and among its standard items is a Premium 1 package with a backup camera, active ventilated seats, the Airscarf neck heating system, an electronic trunk closer with hands-free functionality, a Harman Kardon sound system with Logic7 surround and keyless go. Options include a premium Bang & Olufsen sound system ($5,400), the Magic Sky Control panorama roof dimmer ($2,500) and soft close doors ($450).

The SL63 AMG ($147,300) gets a power boost from 429 horsepower to 530 hp, with upgrades performed to the suspension and braking system, as well. The same options exist here as in the SL550.

Ultimate SL-Class performance comes from the SL65 AMG ($214,500), which features a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 that churns 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. Apart from an exterior carbon fiber package ($3,570) and a drive kit for iPhone integration ($599), the SL65 AMG doesn't leave much room for additional packages or extra features.

Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Safety

Is the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG a Safe Car?

Mercedes-Benz claims the 2014 SL is "the world's safest convertible." Along with side and knee airbags, there's a pop-up roll bar, driver-attention assist and the company's pre-collision system, which tightens seat belts and primes the brakes. On the options list are intelligent cruise control, blind spot monitoring and active lane keeping.

Neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has crash-tested the 2014 SL-Class, but given Mercedes-Benz's record, we anticipate the SL to perform well in occupant protection.

2014 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG vs the competition

BMW 6-Series Convertible -- The BMW 6-series convertible starts at $82,900, a significantly lower price than the SL-Class. Though it doesn't quite pack the same level of performance and technology as the Benz, the BMW 6-series holds its own in comfort.

Jaguar F-Type -- Jaguar's first 2-seat roadster in years starts at $69,000, but rapidly escalates in price as more potent powertrains are optioned. Dynamically satisfying and strikingly styled, the F-Type offers serious competition against the SL-Class.

Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet -- The Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet isn't cheap at $160,700, but its legendary performance and thorough engineering make it a potent competitor for the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.
