Artful Blend of Style and Comfort

Exteriorly, the 2017 SL-Class stuns with bold, 19-inch wheels (with 20-inch rear wheels on the AMG® SL 65), LED exterior lighting, and a power retractable hardtop. Inside, you’re greeted by a sporty two-passenger cabin, complete with a power windblocker. The sun-reflecting leather upholstery is designed to withstand the sun’s rays as you cruise over the Golden Gate Bridge with the top down. Even with the top up, the Panorama roof lets you enjoy natural light and fresh air. For greater UV protection, optional MAGIC SKY CONTROL® uses an electrical current to automatically modify the transparency of the roof glass. The SL Convertibles also feature:

  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Heated, power-adjustable front seats
  • Electric trunk partition
  • Multi-color LED ambient lighting
  • 5-year mbrace® Connect Package
  • Optional AIRSCARF® neck-level heating system
  • Optional soft-close doors

On-The-Go Connectivity

Exciting tech gadgets abound inside the new SL-Class. The dash-embedded COMAND® system’s high-resolution display stands out at a glance and includes a center console-mounted controller for quick scrolling and selection. Thanks to the COMAND® system, placing handsfree calls, managing the 600-watt harman/kardon® Logic 7®* sound system, and navigating to your destination are made easier than ever. What’s more, standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto let you control mobile phone functions, such as messaging or music streaming, via both the infotainment system and voice recognition. Marin County and surrounding area car shoppers can also anticipate these standard and optional features:

  • Bluetooth®** connectivity
  • 3-year map updates for COMAND® hard-drive navigation
  • HD Radio receiver
  • Front Bass® system
  • Optional 900-watt Bang & Olufsen® BeoSound Premium Sound System
  • Optional in-car Wi-Fi hotspot

Driver Assists Galore

Even with its ample performance, comfort, and tech features, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SL Convertible leaves plenty of room for state-of-the-art safety and security systems, including:

  • Active Brake Assist: To prevent or mitigate an accident, this system uses radar technology to sense frontal collisions before they occur and either brakes autonomously at speeds of up to 65 mph or activates the pre-collision PRESAFE® system.
  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: This driver attention monitor acts as your co-pilot during long drives and uses visual and auditory notifications to warn you of potentially dangerous drowsiness levels.
  • Adaptive Highbeam Assist: Using a forward-facing camera, Adaptive Highbeam Assist automatically modifies the range of the LED headlamps to provide the best road illumination possible without temporarily blinding other drivers.
  • MAGIC VISION CONTROL®: Designed to maximize visibility, this system utilizes specially designed laser-cut wiper blades, which release a precise spray of washer fluid and include a heating element for greater performance in cold weather.
