the new AMG Performance Media system...puts a face to your performance driving, translating lateral grip, acceleration, engine data and lap times into an ever-changing display that doubles as the car's navigation system.

With some of the same luxury features you'll find in the Mercedes ultra-luxe CL coupes, the SLS AMG is as plush as you'd want in a 197-mph supercar.

No, it doesn't have massage-function seats, but every SLS AMG has standard leather upholstery; keyless ignition; a power tilt/telescope steering wheel; rear parking sensors and a rearview camera; heated power seats; cruise control; and COMAND, the infotainment controller that uses knob-driven haptics to run the standard navigation, automatic climate control, and AM/FM/DVD/satellite radio system.

Few options are offered. There's a spectacular Bang & Olufsen sound system; a carbon-fiber kit including a hood, side mirrors, and dash trim; the new RIDE CONTROL adjustable suspension; forged 10-spoke wheels; sports bucket seats; and a performance steering wheel finished in leather and Alcantara, which feels warm, grippy, and a little sinful.

Roadster models come standard with a power-actuated top that's color-coordinated to a lovely palette of interior and exterior colors, including a new Sepang Brown shade. The top itself can be raised or lowered in 11 seconds, at speeds of up to 31 mph--and consumes only a tenth of a cubic foot of the available trunk space.

Conclusion

The 2012 SLS AMG offers many of the luxury features of Mercedes-Benz' CL coupes, including its own gearhead telemetry.

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.
