2017 Mercedes-Benz SL interior
Coming to the interior one can see that the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SL has undergone only verylittle changes. The gaps between the panels have been reduced giving it a more premium appearance. The new three spoke steering wheel does not offer any appreciable change. The gauges have been updated but the two tube appearance is not changed. The TFT display offers trim and mileage information as well as vitals on the car. The interior of the car has night time lighting choice of three selectable colors which are polar blue, polar white and solar red. Inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto has improved the connectivity of the vehicle. The driver has the option to select five presets using the Dynamic function select which allows changing the behavior of the suspension, steering and transmission systems. It helps to control the body roll in corners by allowing the suspension to adjust when the car leans into the turn.
