2011 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG: 12/18 mpg
EPA



It's a good thing the Mercedes-Benz SL convertibles dole out high-speed, drama-free cruising by the yachtload--that way, you don't have to fret about the yachtlike fuel reserves you'll need to keep one going full steam ahead.

The SL550 leads the EPA ratings for the model line. It's scored at 14/22 mpg--lower than you'll get in a Jaguar XK, or even a Nissan GT-R or HEMI-powered Dodge Challenger.

Things get considerably less frugal in the AMG SLs. The SL63's V-8 engine and seven-speed automatic muster 12/19 mpg from the EPA, lower than Benz' own SLS AMG or an Audi R8 V-10 Spyder. The SL65's massive V-12 drops another highway mile per gallon for its 12/18-mpg rating.


Conclusion

The 2011 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class gets a fair upbraiding from the EPA; fuel economy is low even in the relatively frugal SL550.

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.
