2022 Mercedes-AMG SL Reaffirms Its Place in the World



The night before the test drive, the 2022 Mercedes-AMGSL63 parked out front seemed to be daring our eyes to compare it to anything SLThat’s what has been done before. It’s a smoother, softer form. theNeue SLRetain theThe same proportions as the predecessor, with shorter decks and a longer hood. However, it has a smaller overhang. It appears less brickish than the predecessor. the previous square-jawed design, theFront curvier theBack sculpted. The end result is that theNew car seems smaller than theOld one, despite growing in length.

The last-generation SLIt seems that it has been abandoned. in thelineup to be just another expensive convertible. Sales plummeted. Toward theEnd of production in 2020, the SLThe sales of’s were only a tenth as Mercedes’s. in the ’90s. With theNeue SLMercedes wants to bring its convertible sporty back to relevance, if it is not legend status.

While the sales of this car may only be a fraction of Mercedes’s total, the SLIt is a symbol of theBrand, a way for you to show off theElegance and technology it offers, and a tie to the past. “You don’t want to have.” the SLPhilipp Schiemer CEO at AMG said, “Go away on your Watch.” He admitted that it was both terrifying and exciting to undertake. theResponsibility theNew version. He said, “It’s motivating.” It’s a different way of looking at things. theLast one, also different the GT. It is fast, but it’s also very usable. Comfortable. Beautiful.”

The beauty of the new car is not just skin-deep. The SL’s new underpinnings are pretty enough to put on display and consist of a mix of aluminum, magnesium, carbon fiber, and steel—they also boost torsional rigidity by 18 percent over thePrevious SL. The new structure has a 4.6 inch longer wheelbase which allows for small rear seats. theRetractable hardtop theThe last two generations are gone.

With the fully lined cloth top folded away—it takes 15 seconds and can be done at speeds up to 37 mph—the interior welcomes you in. New cars tend to emphasize their digital features, the SLIt almost hides them. This is to achieve a more analog atmosphere. The cabin is simple by Mercedes standards. It lacks a large screen and quilted pillows. A 11.9-inch touchscreen is slanted between two turbine-style vents. theDigital cluster is obscured by protrusions the leather-wrapped dash. There are few physical controls in the SL. Climate, stereo, navigation and phone are all managed through the center screen.

Rear seats are not recommended for adults, but they can be useful for small children, luggage or beagle dogs. It is better to be up front. theOur SL63 performance seats were narrow and padded, but still comfortable enough for an S-class customer.

Those sporty-but-not-too-sporty seats mirror Mercedes’s goals for theNeue SL.
