The new SL uses a 4.6-liter V8 instead of the previous 5.4-liter. A start-stop system that shuts the engine off at stops saves some gas. It looks a lot like the old two-seat roadster with its retractable hardtop. But it's slightly longer and wider. It is full of new high-tech features and safety equipment.

White Diamond SL by SL Afficando on 07/03/2013. Trim: 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL550, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Had a 2012 and now have a white diamond 2013. The 12 was great, but the 13 is just awesome. Increased power and comfort and technology is a huge step forward.
Cons: Can't hide in the darn thing - everyone wants to see it. The rear end styling could be better.
Overall review: Very pricey, but a great car all around.
