The interior design is inspired by the AMG GT and GT 4-door Coupé, according to Mercedes, but here the center console is dominated by an 11.9-inch touchscreen. The company said portrait orientation is better for navigation, and the entire screen can be electronically tilted to give drivers the best view possible.
Running the brand’s MBUX infotainment system, the 12.3-inch instrument display is fully digital and drivers can customize menus to suit their individual preferences. Mercedes claimed that the screen “is not designed to be stand-alone but integrated into a high-tech visor” which prevents glare from sunlight.
There is also an optional head-up display which can display the car’s surroundings in 3D.
The AMG SL adopts a 2 + 2 seating arrangement for the first time since the 1989 Mercedes SL R129 model. The rear seats are suitable for children and, when not in use, Mercedes claims that a windbreaker can prevent unwanted air flow around the driver and front passenger.
True to the sporty and comfortable spirit of the car, Mercedes has paid particular attention to the interior finish. Buyers can choose between plain or two-tone nappa leather, which can be combined with a variety of stitching colors. Burmester speakers are integrated into the doors and ambient lighting in 64 colors allows drivers to adjust the ambience of the cabin.
“The interior of the new Mercedes-AMG SL pampers the driver and passengers with sophisticated luxury,” said Philipp Schiemer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Mercedes. “The new SL combines the highest levels of comfort and quality in its interior, coupled with just the right amount of sportiness. The high-quality combination of the analog world and cutting-edge digital equipment shows one thing: the new SL is the rebirth of an icon of the modern era.
