Review Summary:

The Mercedes-Benz SL is a grand touring sports car, designed to provide comfort, style, and a refined driving experience.


* It's sure to turn heads as you drive it down the street.


* Price for top end models may require you to put your house on mortgage.


The 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL is, like its brothers and sisters, a fine looking car. It bears the now familiar face of Mercedes mixed with stylish creases. Behind the front wheel arches there are sharp grilles, leaving a brace of voluptuous contours in its wake.

The SL all feels very lightweight. Not in the derogatory sense, but when referring to the materials used (hardly surprising since that is what SL actually stands for). Stylish leather and all manner of high-end materials are laced throughout, making the SL feel exceptionally classy.

Mercedes has built the SL with the usual assortment of goodies, including a media interface, intelligent lights and a Harman Kardon surround sound system. Then there are the usual tricks like active parking assist and a DVD changer. The sports package option is intended to provide a superb driving experience.

What’s on offer?

Four versions of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL are on offer, with the SL 400 being the way in at AED 371,000. Prices climb steadily, the SL 500 will set you back AED 454,000 and the SL 63 AMG will leave you AED 583,000 lighter. For the more elaborate car-shopper, the SL 65 AMG costs an eye-watering AED 815,000. This model produces 630hp and 1000Nm of torque.

Summing it

The SL will offer you a stylish and comfortable ride. Like a lot of other premium Mercedes models, the SL is not what you would call an economical purchase. But if you can afford one then no one will be laughing at you; they’ll be asking for a ride.
