    [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

     

    Interior:


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    That interior is a mess...

    Really? I don't find it to be that bad, IMO the layering of different materials and elements was done quite well. Sure the big vertical screen is an eyesore but it has some good details. Smiley


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    The big screen is actually Ok, what bothers me is the lack of consistency and busyness all over, that steering wheel with so many stalks and spokes, the mix of different button designs and textures together with no overall pattern, and the nightclub lighting just finishes it off yes I do like the interior of other Mercedes though, just this one could of been more graceful imo, but I admit it's entirely subjective kiss


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    Not a fan of that interior either - like that old 300SL Roadster more...

    Smiley Agreen there it's a bit too much light strips. 


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    I like it more than their current GT line up


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    Biggest usability issue on current gen are the tiny mousepads on the steering wheel, all the tech fails if you can’t easily control it.


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    Tesla has the Techno King and Mercedes has the Disco Queen.  What ever happened to the decades of ergonomic research to maximize driver efficiency and effectiveness in all conditions?  It was not that many years ago that the German automakers touted their interior lighting colors to enhance nighttime vision.  Now it's how many light bars and how many colors can they fit in the car.  Multi-colored displays impair, not improve, nighttime vision.  


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    For a car with a giant touch screen, the interior seems really cluttered.............

    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    Is the new SL really a soft top or the fabric roof top in the pictures is camouflage?

    Also a 2+2 SL. Of all the SLs, only the "Pagoda" I think had an optional rear bench.

    It could be a strong rival for the Portofino as well as the GTC, provided the looks are right.

    2022 Mercedes-AMG SL Reveal Delayed Until Oct 28

    Mercedes has delayed the unveiling of the 2022 SL sports car by just over a week. It will now be shown on October 28, rather than October 20 as originally planned.


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    Needs a faster windscreen angle.  Looks too bulbous in the profile image.  


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    Did they love some weight?

    Does it live up to the name Sport Light now?


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    I like the looks

    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    The looks are very samey with other M-B models and hence the car doesn't look expensive enough to rival Bentley or Ferrari. I don't think the removal of camouflage will change much.

    The problem with M-B in recent years is that they have come up with so many models that look very similar and they have damaged their perceived value and prestige.

    This is true.

    The only MB models I am interested in purchasing are G Wagen and AMG One.

    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    That red quarter view image of the red SL is very reminiscent of a 911 Cabriolet.  Overall, this is a massive improvement over the now previous generation of SL.  


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    That is a return to form, last-gen SL really was an insult to the concept.

    it's actually nicer looking than the 992 cab profile.

    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    Nicer than a GT from Mercedes for sure to me


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    I think the styling is OK for the people who like this type of car. The return to soft-top is a very positive thing.

    Huge PS/HP typical of M-B but huge weight too. I suppose a car for straight line people and for the boulevard.

    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    Still waiting for the prices but I like it that all models are AWD. indecision

    Weight is under 2000 kg, which is basically similar to the C63 S Cab. Impressive.

    But they've decided to go with this, the SL55 / SL63 will be using 4Matic+

     


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    Return in some respects to the W129 which I always loved. The rear seats is a good idea, even if not practical for anything but kids, looks work for me. Kinda like it.


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    I was driving next to a W129 a few days ago; what a clean, elegant design. These new, bulbous, aggressive designs with these ugly grilles are nowhere near imo.

    Best of Bruno Sacco.


    Re: [2022] Mercedes-AMG SL

    What I like about the new SL are:

    The abolition of the Vario-roof system in favour of the classic and lighter soft top.

    The rear bench which is useful even for oddments incl. small children angry

    The attractive 911-esque rear instead of the typically squared M-B rears.

    Don't like:

    The "Carrera Panamericana"  imitation grille doesn't blend with the smooth styling of the rest of the car.

    The huge weight (2 tonnes for a two seat cabriolet) which requires an unnecessarily high amount of HP to move quickly.

    The need for standard AWD and no RWD option means the basic chassis, weight distribution etc, of the car is not perfect. It is not after all a 1000 HP supercar.
