Benz's love/hate COMAND interface continues to get easier to operate
B&O audio system is "outstanding
Standard features on the 2010 Mercedes-Benz gullwing includes the COMAND radio and entertainment control system; leather upholstery; an electronic parking brake; headlamp assist; keyless ignition; rear parking sensors; heated power seats; cruise control; and sport pedals. A retractable rear spoiler is standard; "at anything above 75 mph, the rear spoiler springs into action to maintain the front-to-rear balance," Car and Driver notes. "Go below 50, and it recedes."
Autoblog pins down improvements to the Mercedes COMAND system. "Benz's love/hate COMAND interface continues to get easier to operate with each generation and we didn't have difficulty operating the nav or turning off the stereo (we'd rather listen to the 6.2-liter fireworks, thanks)."
Optional goodies include a six-disc DVD charger; a Bang & Olufsen sound system; an alarm; and several AMG paint schemes, such as the special Alubeam Silver. Edmunds calls the B&O audio system "outstanding."
AMG is also offering several performance modifications, including a carbon-fiber hood, side mirrors, and trim; stiffer suspension settings; forged 10-spoke wheels; sports bucket seats; and a performance steering wheel finished in leather and Alcantara, which feels warm and grippy and a little sinful.
It's not lavish like a Benz CL coupe, but the 2010 SLS AMG offers many luxury features and a line of AMG performance add-ons.
