Overview & Reviews
After skipping a model year, the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class loses a pair of members: the SL600 and the SL63 AMG Black Series. All remaining SLs receive revised telematics, a more informative tire-pressure monitoring system, real-time traffic, HD radio and satellite radio. Those wanting a special SL can try to snag one of the 100 special SL550 Night Edition models.
- Quick-stowing hardtop, thrilling performance, solid handling, compliant adjustable ride, convertible-friendly seats, spacious interior.
- The SL65 AMG is too powerful and too expensive for its own good
- COMAND interface is unintuitive to use.

A great car diminished by a few flaws. - 2011 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

Purchased new, and as an everyday driver, we've logged 18k. The car's excellence is diminished only by a few ergonomic issues. The heat controls for the seats are mounted on the door, making it impossible to adjust without taking your eyes off the road, and don't get me talking about programming the GPS! It has an outdated feel - My mobile phone is much better! The drivetrain shifts smoothly, and the engine delivers the perfect combination of torque and horsepower. If the interior design falls behind the outstanding engineering of the rest of the car.
