This upcoming model is quite similar to the Mercedes SL65 AMG, featuring the almost identical exterior design. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL400 comes with a twin radiator grille on the front, small air intake below it, and additional intakes below the LED headlights. There are also additional openings on the hood and below the front wheels for improved engine and brake cooling.

The car is quite stylish and elegant, although its design hasn’t been changed for about three years. It still looks very fresh. Given that this is a convertible, it comes with a folding hardtop, which can retract in 16 seconds, while the rear window pivots by 180 degrees to increase storage area in the trunk.

It rides on 19-inch seven-spoke alloy wheels, but there is also an option of 19-inch AMG five-spoke sports wheels included in the Sport package.

Inside, standard are the luxury wood and leather trims, as well as the heated leather seats. The SL400 will have a GPS satellite navigation, 600 W Harman Kardon stereo audio system, and high-resolution infotainment display.
