New Mercedes-AMG SL Gets Back Seats, Power-Tilt Touchscreen

Mercedes shows off new SL interior

  • New SL will be AMG-only, offer two seats for only second time

  • The luxury flagship roadster levels up inside


Mercedes-Benz is showing off the interior of the new SL roadster. It’s completely new, with a design style that the automaker calls “hyperanalogue”, and while we’re sure it will offer new levels of luxury, it also offers a party trick. An adjustable angle for the infotainment screen, along with four seats for the first time in more than 30 years.

For the high-end Mercedes-Benz roadster, luxury is the key objective. “Hyperanalogue” plays a part in that, the blend of analogue shapes and digital elements like screens and lighting. Mercedes-Benz says it was inspired by the original 300 SL.

The dash top is meant to look like an airplane wing, divided into upper and lower structures, and features four prominent vents that look like jet turbines. The dash wraps into the doors and all the way into the center console, helping to connect the entire element. Single and two-tone Nappa leather options are offered, or pick from diamond stitching, contrasts, or even microfibre.

For the first time since 1989, and just the second time ever for the SL, this Mercedes-AMG SL model is a 2+2. It’s a small rear seat ideal for the occasional passenger (Merc says under 1.5m or just under five feet), or, more likely, golf bags and shopping.

Lastly, sitting alongside the digital dash display is that 11.9-inch portrait layout touchscreen. Borrowing the NACA duct signature from the AMG GT as a styling element around it, the screen can be electrically adjusted to make it more or less vertical. Why? to stop reflections from the sun when you’ve got the roof down, which is actually a pretty handy feature.

The latest Mercedes-Benz SL will be sold only as the Mercedes-AMG SL. We’re still waiting for more specific powertrain info as well as what the new SL will look like.
