On request the ambient lighting with the colours solar red, polar blue and polar white for the centre console, armrests and footwell create a special lighting mood. With its pleasant, indirect light, the ambient lighting sets off the interior to particularly appealing effect. The lighting mood can also be adjusted in terms of brightness to suit personal tastes.
Navigation, telephone, audio, video, internet – with the control and display system COMAND online (optional for the SL 400) the driver keeps these and many other functions in sight and under control. Information is shown in colour on a 17.8 cm (7-inch) high-resolution media display. Operation is simple and intuitive.
Bang & Olufsen BeoSound: A fascinating composition.
The optional Bang & Olufsen BeoSound AMG high-end surround sound system – standard for the Mercedes-AMG SL 65 – was specially developed for the SL. Twelve high-performance loudspeakers, ICE power amplifiers with DSP and a total output of 1020 watts produce tailor-made acoustics. Innovative solutions facilitate clear and precise sound reproduction.
Driving Assistance package PLUS.
The optional Driving Assistance package Plus combines safety and assistance systems which help relieve driver strain, reduce the risk of accidents and improve protection for both the occupants and other road users. The Distance Pilot with Steering Pilot helps the driver to maintain a safe distance from vehicles travelling ahead and to keep the car in the centre of the lane. The Active Brake Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist along with cross-traffic function can reduce the risk of rear-end and side collisions and accidents at intersections as well as collisions with pedestrians and other vehicles.
Active Lane Keeping Assist.
As part of Driving Assistance package PLUS, the Active Lane Keeping Assist offers support if the car leaves its lane unintentionally. The driver receives a haptic warning via pulsed steering-wheel vibrations. If there is no reaction from the driver, in the second stage the car can be led back into the lane through one-sided brake actuations.
If a rear impact is imminent, this addition to the PRE-SAFE® system can initiate preventive occupant protection measures. Radar sensors in the rear bumper monitor the area behind the vehicle. If the danger of a rear-end collision is recognised, PRE-SAFE® PLUS activates the rear hazard warning flashers at a fast rate to warn the driver following behind. If the vehicle is at a standstill, the brake pressure can be actively increased. PRE-SAFE® PLUS is part of the Driving Assistance package PLUS.
Reverse parking and manoeuvring is made much easier and safer by the reversing camera. It is switched on automatically when the driver selects reverse gear, and shows the driver the area behind the vehicle with dynamic guide lines on the media display.
This equipment line brings together a range of perfectly coordinated features designed to enhance further the sportiness and exclusivity of the vehicle. Dynamic looks are ensured by the striking AMG 5-spoke light-alloy wheels. Seats with specific vertical fluting as well as the instrument cluster in "Chequered Flag" design make for a striking visual appearance in the interior, as do the AMG velour floor mats.
AMG Night Package.
With striking design elements in high-gloss black, the AMG Night package underscores the already very sporty character of the AMG bodystyling and the AMG Line. The vehicle can be individualised further with exterior components in high gloss black, such as the front splitter or difuser insert in the rear apron. The side view too is characterised by highlights in high-gloss black.
