SL-Class

Mercedes' low-to-the-ground and stunningly styled, rear-drive, luxury sports coupe continues for 2006 with a slickly operating power-retractable hardtop that enables it to go from closed coupe to full roadster in a matter of seconds. The base SL500 includes a 302-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 engine that's mated to a seven-speed-automatic transmission, while the SL600 adds muscle with its 493-horsepower, 5.5-liter V-12. On the sportier side, the limited-production SL55 AMG version includes a 493-horsepower, 5.5-liter V-8, and a new top SL65 AMG offers a hand-built, 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 engine that's responsible for a road-blurring 604 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. This model is said to be able to sprint from zero to 60 mph in just over four seconds. Four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist, Electronic Stability Program, Automatic Slip Control, side airbags, a pop-up roll bar, and the TeleAid emergency system are standard on all versions. For 2006, run-flat tires are added to the options list, redesigned 18-inch wheels are included in the AMG Sport Package, and the otherwise optional Keyless Go entry/starter system, heated steering wheel, and corner-illuminating fog lamps are now standard on the SL600.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
