To go along with its elegant and sophisticated exterior, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz SL is able to provide all the power you could ever want, and that you've come to expect from Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Because the body of the 2018 SL has been made lighter overall, the biturbo engines that power the SL are able to crank out even more power while using less fuel than previous models do. Depending on which SL trim is more suited for you, you'll either be treated to a 362-horsepowre V6 or an eye-popping 449-horsepower V8. Both these engines feature piezoelectric Direct Injection technology to ensure they don't waste a single drop of fuel.
In order to ensure you get the classic Mercedes-Benz feel each time you press down on the accelerator, the 2018 SL features a 4-wheel multilink suspension that teams with a semi-active damping function to provide a smooth and crisp drive each and every time. The innovative Active Body Control® system furthers comfort by implementing curve tilting while you drive. If you think the driving experience you get from your current Mercedes-Benz vehicle is good, just wait until you get behind the wheel of a 2018 SL and feel just how driving was meant to be.
2018 SL Technology
The signature retractable hardtop roof that has become synonymous with the Mercedes-Benz SL is back and better than ever in 2018. This standard Panorama roof allows you and your co-pilot to take in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest at all times regardless if the top is up or down. When things get a little too bright outside, simply press a button and the roof will unfold and you'll be treated to a see-through roof that shades you from the sun, and still provides breathtaking views of the world around you.
The Mercedes-Benz SL has always been at the forefront of roadster safety, and the 2018 model is no different. A network of cameras and radar sensors placed all around the 2018 SL are capable of monitoring the area around your vehicle in order to detect danger, and alert you with enough time for you to react accordingly. *
*Even the most advanced safety systems may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for system alerts before braking or taking evasive action, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance. See Operator's Manual for system's operating speeds and additional information and warnings.
