2018 Mercedes-Benz SL-class in Depth: The Date-Night Sports Car

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz SL Class has a few new modifications this year. It’s not a complete overhaul since the car received updates that were part of a redesign of the series. The 2018 version is still sleek and keeps its top shelf reputation with luxury add ons like heat warmers, rear camera and ground lights. It’s combination luxury and sport make it a great date night car and the lower priced V-6 engine of the 450 is a better buy than the SL-550.

Key Takeaways:

  • Strong performance, impressive refinement, expensively subdued good looks.
  • Interior not up to Benz’s best, small infotainment screen, not as flashy as some competitors.
  • A polished roadster that oozes class and lives up to its storied reputation.

“The SL received an update that brought freshened looks front and rear and a few mechanical updates.”
