2013 Mercedes Benz SL Features
The SL series has always impressed viewers with its low and long body, and the 2013 Mercedes Benz SL carries on with its iconic exteriors with a mix of bold curves and cuts at just the right places to cause a neck ache as it roars by envious bystanders.
The hood of the SL seems to stretch on until eternity even as the front grill proudly sports the over-sized 3-star logo to convey the financial prowess of the owner. The front bumper sports daytime running LED lights in a separate notch below the headlamps. This roadster follows eco-friendly green features with several components of the body being constructed out of recycled aluminum and sheet metal.
The retractable roof transforms this masculine roadster into a coupe within seconds, thanks to the impressive “Magic Sky Control” mechanism employed by Mercedes engineers. The sides too sport a masculine theme with 5-spoke alloy wheels housed in mutely flared wheel arches.
The boot again is a piece of art on its own with triangular shaped tail lamps outfitted with LEDs flanking a massive trunk. Rectangular tail pipes from each side of the rear bumper complete the macho look of the SL.
The 2013 Mercedes Benz SL does take care of happy owners with a plush interior that combines luxury, cutting-edge technology and the right level of sportiness. The dashboard stands out immediately as one enters the SL thanks to 4 chrome-lined a/c vents and a dial-in-dial feature inside the instrument panel.
The center of the gizmo-loaded dashboard features the COMMAND or “Cockpit Management and Data System” that offers Bluetooth as well as internet connectivity based on the package chosen by the buyer.
A wide range of online apps that can be utilized for pleasure and work are available from the Mercedes website. Red leather is splashed on the seats, door panels, and the steering wheel to enhance the sporty nature of the SL Roadster and do succeed admirably, although buyers might be able to specify their own interiors as well.
A host of high-tech electronic and safety features including airbags in every nook and cranny will protect its precious human cargo in case of an unfortunate mishap.
