2018 Mercedes Benz SL Roadster in Houston

Step into a New 2020 Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster, and Kick Off Your Houston, TX Road Trip

Strikingly sculpted, from flow-evocative LED headlamps and shapely grille across sleek retractable hardtop to aggressive rear styling, a 2020 SL Roadster is one luxury sports car it's impossible to miss. The new Mercedes-Benz road warrior returns for the 2020 model year in SL 450 and SL 550 trims nearly 300 pounds lighter and 20 percent more rigid for the agile ride thanks to a diecast, chilled-cast, hydroformed and extruded aluminum structure, to be sure. But when it comes down to the Mercedes-Benz roadster experience, it's the convertible's comfort, safety, and most of all, performance that place it ahead of the sport-driving curve. Discover new horizons for your pleasure cruise with us here at Mercedes-Benz of West Houston.

Ease into the new-for-2020 yet iconic SL Roadster contoured two-seat cockpit, and you'll find yourself reclining into your choice of personally-tailored, sun-reflective Nappa or designo®leather, a lap of luxury flanked by an AIRSCARF® system to keep wind condition management breezy. The sports car's signature power-retractable hardtop showcases standard transparent panorama roof paneling complete with a sliding sunshade, and exclusive MAGIC SKY CONTROL® enables electronic overhead darkening to suit the great outdoors above. So, start your engines, and hit the road - with 362-horsepower, 3.0-liter V6 and 449-horsepower, 4.7-liter V8 biturbo options, you'll be in for an adrenalized thrill-ride.

A new, wide-ratio 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission delivers fluid gear changes along the way, assisted by DYNAMIC SELECT modes spanning a gamut from Comfort to Sport+ and Custom to personalize the drive. What's more, a four-wheel multilink suspension with semi-active damping retains the coupe as a model of limber handling, incorporating available Active Body Control®' to allow tilting curves with professionalism.

But performance panache isn't all the new SL Roadster from Mercedes-Benz brings to 2020. It's also a showcase of cutting-edge Intelligent Drive safety and driver-assistance features. An Electronic Stability Program ensures a sturdy feel on the road, with layers of redundant protection provided by an eight-way airbag system, NECK PRO® front head restraints, pop-up roll bars, and our automaker's PRESAFE® preventative measure system for staving off the effects of an accident. Plus, an anti-lock braking system with adaptive braking technology and Brake Assist kicks in when you need it for reliable stopping power. You can even avail yourself of added situational awareness from smart features like ATTENTION ASSIST® and adaptive high beams, while those like Active Brake Assist with a Cross-Traffic Function help you avoid collisions. Factor in myriad options like steering, parking, blind spot and lane-keeping assist capabilities, among others, and peace of mind's all but assured.

Likewise, Mercedes-Benz SL offers no shortage of amenities for the trip. A COMAND® system with a central controller builds in standard navigation for point-A-to-point-Adventure convenience, and a standard 600-watt harman/kardon® surround sound system with FrontBass® subwoofers keeps your favorite tunes thumping for the duration. Opt for a higher trim, and you can experience a veritable symphony on the road thanks to a 900-watt, 7.1-channel Bang & Olufsen® BeoSound&#trade; system. Plus, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard to allow smartphone and media device interface, and to that end, you can make full use of Mercedes-Benz mbrace® app support. Access to and control of optional Wi-Fi, apps, and other vehicle functions, including available remote start, is easier than ever, whether you're in your SL Roadster, on your computer, or using your smartphone.
