What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For A sleek coupe and a sexy roadster - all in one car

Against Not as nimble as some rivals

Verdict One of the most desirable cars now at reasonable prices

Go for… SL55 AMG

Avoid… SL350

Mercedes-Benz SL Open
  • 1. When looking at an SL, check out your local Mercedes dealer to make sure their customer service matches your expectations
  • 2. Check the folding roof works smoothly and quickly, as the electric motors can seize
  • 3. The alloys on AMG models are prone to kerb damage, and very expensive to repair or replace
  • 4. Every engine is great, but the powerful SL55 AMG is the greatest
  • 5. The cabin is a great place to be, whether you've got the roof up or down
