The SL-Class hardtop convertibles build in a plush, roomy interior that makes for cozy long-distance touring.

The SL's handsome cockpit balances wood, leather, and aluminum trim in a warm way. We love the seats, whether they're the base versions or the multi-contour chairs. Both are among the finest in the class, with all manner of power adjustment, and massaging and heating functions. The adaptable seats use air bladders that inflate and deflate dynamically--tightening up when you're cornering, relaxing on the interstate.

Its packaging gives the SL's passengers great leg and head room, even with the convertible roof raised. A six-footer will fit inside easily, with space behind the seatbacks and the trunk to spare.

That may come in handy, since actual trunk space is marginal. The SL's folding hardtop leaves only 7.2 cubic feet of space behind when it's retracted, and the SL only has about 10 cubic feet of cargo space to start with.

There isn't a better, tighter-fitting hardtop in the business. The SL's lid truly keeps the cabin as quiet as a hardtop could, and noises are limited to the fabulous howl from the engines at full wind-up. A spot or two of off-note materials aside, the cockpit's a spectacularly rich place for two to ride.


Conclusion

Two passengers will be coddled inside the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, but they should travel lightly.

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.
