Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Convertible SL 350 (AMG Sport Pack) 2d Auto (2012/62) - Owner Review

The retractable roof is fantastic, looks like a sporty coupe when up with little road noise, and perfect convertible when down.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It s a very comfortable place to be. Having previously had a Porsche, the Porsche feels more like a teenager, and makes you want to drive it fast. the Mercedes feels more grown up, it makes you enjoy the ride, rather then trying to prove that you are a racing driver. Having said that the mercedes could do with more power though, for those few times when you want to act like a teenager.

What's it like to park?
It s quite easy and you have a lot of help from the options installed.
