Trailer activity New Mercedes-AMG SL Moving on, this German car manufacturer now lets us take a good look at the living space of the upcoming R232. According to the company, the interior is a mixture of analog geometry and the digital world, which it calls “super-analog.”
When it comes to geometry, a long-term feature of the previous R231 SL is its asymmetrical dashboard, but the new model solves this problem. This new symmetrical design is said to be inspired by aviation, and its wing-like shape is highlighted by four tubular vents that form a “power dome” on top of the dashboard-these vents refer to jet turbines on airplanes .
The aviation-inspired design method extends to the door panels and aims to integrate into the instrument panel to create a cockpit-like feel. On both doors, you will find seat controls and door handles, which are reminiscent of the seat controls and door handles in the latest EQS, and are equipped with perforated metal covers for Burmester speakers.
The company has also integrated some driver-centric functions, starting with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, which is placed on an elevated shelf (the company prefers to call it a “high-tech sun visor”) rather than a standalone Unit.
This is to provide better readability, because shadow screens are less susceptible to reflections caused by sunlight. Avoiding reflections when the roof is down is also the reason that the 11.9-inch portrait format touch screen can be adjusted to a more vertical position electrically.
The touch screen is connected to the second-generation Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system, which also appears in new models. S classTherefore, the graphics are clear, and passengers can use many functions, including the performance that emphasizes the SL motion characteristics and the tracking pace menu.
At the same time, the center console looks like you are AMG GT as well as GT 4-door Coupe, Because the design has the NACA wind tunnel logo that transitions to the touch screen. Unlike these models, there are no dedicated buttons to adjust specific vehicle functions, so the driver will have to fiddle with the steering wheel, the controls under the touch screen, or the touch screen itself.
As you might expect, the cabin is decorated with a large number of high-quality materials, and customers will have no shortage of options to choose from. Sports or performance seats can be paired with one-color or two-color Nappa leather upholstery, the latter with diamond stitching or Dinamica microfiber with yellow or red contrasting topstitch stitching. There is also an ambient lighting system with 64 different colors and an optional head-up display.
The new SL brings back the 2+2 seating configuration, which was previously discovered on the R129 in 1989. The company stated that the rear seats can actually be used by people up to 1.5 meters tall. If no extra seats are needed, the owner can install a wind deflector to prevent air from blowing behind the necks of the front passengers, or use it as additional storage space-golf bags are no problem here.
Another feature that is making a comeback is Fabric roof After several generations of metal hardtops, the rest of the vehicle is brand new, especially its Lightweight body. R232 will also be the first time SL has won Fully variable 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system, with Engine options It may be six-cylinder and eight-cylinder devices.
