2016 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Buyer's Guide

The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is a two door two seat sports car with a retractable hard top. The latest generation of the roadster was introduced for the 2013 model year and featured all-new aluminum construction to help reduce weight, which helps increase performance and improve fuel economy. For a 2 seater, the SL-Class is quite large, and features a good amount of storage space with the top up, though trunk space is compromised when the top is down. Speaking of the top, it features a neat panorama roof with a heat-reflecting transparent panel and a sunshade. When equipped with Magic Sky Control, the panel can be darkened at the press of the button.
