2022 Mercedes-Benz SL Class vs. Its Competition

2022 Mercedes-Benz AMG SL 55
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The SL-Class goes up against some spectacular convertibles.

The BMW 8-Series is a larger car with comparable power and luxury but more space.

The Jaguar F-Type brings strictly V-8 power as well, with amazing sounds and sleek looks.

The move to a 2+2 layout brings the SL closer to the Porsche 911 cabriolet, but the Merc isn’t as poised as the rear-engine industry benchmark.

The Chevy Corvette has gone mid-engine; it aims for an in-your-face attitude rather than the SL’s elegance.
