The Car Guide rating 65%(view ratings)
Heir to the iconic German roadster introduced in 1954, the Mercedes-Benz SL is now in its sixth generation. Today’s lineup consists of the SL 450, which is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine, and the high-performance SL 550, whose eight-cylinder mill generates 449 horsepower. If you like music, you’ll love the available 1,200-watt Bang & Olufsen premium sound system. The seat massaging feature and hot-air neck warmers are great, too.
