Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

If there's a chink in the SL's armour, it's that its cabin is starting to look and feel a little dated next to those of its rivals, both in terms of quality and infotainment. It's not surprising; this is a facelift of an older design, and the SL doesn't yet benefit from Mercedes' latest materials and Comand infotainment system. Even so, the addition of Apple CarPlay as an option improves matters.

That’s not the only thing to like, as the driver benefits from a wide range of electronic steering wheel and seat adjustment to aid finding the perfect driving position. Compared to the likes of the Jaguar F-Type, you sit more upright, which helps visibility. Even so, the long nose drops out of view meaning you’ll be relying on parking sensors to avoid car park damage.
