On the eve of the official presentation of the Mercedes-AMG SL seventh generation, the manufacturer has just unveiled the first images of the interior of its legendary coupé-cabriolet marketed since 1954. On the program, a 2 + 2 interior assembled around a dashboard hyper-analog.
Hyperanalogue is the term used by the manufacturer to describe the spirit that surrounded the development of the interior of this new Mercedes-AMG SL 2022. Not only did the manufacturer want to keep the soul of the 300, but he also sought to modernize the interior by pushing the technological note as much as possible. The term hyper-analog means the combination of analog components with a set of fully digital instruments.
“The interior of the new Mercedes-AMG SL satisfies driver and passengers alike with sophisticated luxury. The new SL combines the highest levels of comfort and quality in its interior with just the right amount of sportiness. The high-quality fusion of analog world and state-of-the-art digital equipment clearly makes one thing stand out: the new SL is the rebirth of an icon in the modern age ”, says Philipp Schiemer, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH .
A 2 + 2 coupe
We also know that the watchword of this new generation is a return to lightness. It will be more compact and will swap its hard top for a soft top, much simpler and lighter. In addition to the abandonment of its hardtop, the big news is the addition of two seats inside, we have to go back to 1989 to find a Mercedes SL marketed in 2 + 2 configuration. This will make the car a little more practical; it can accommodate your personal effects, a golf bag, for example, or two small passengers.
The symmetrical instrument panel is divided into two sections, upper and lower, comprising at the heart of its design the four newly designed galvanized turbine-type air vents. The lower section of the instrument panel extends smoothly from the center console, while the cockpit is focused on the driver. Mercedes-Benz mentions that it was inspired by aviation in the development of the dashboard.
The centrally positioned, vertically positioned 11.9-inch touchscreen liquid crystal display (LCD) provides control of the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz’s MBUX infotainment system. The appearance of the instrument set can be customized using different display styles and individually selectable main views. Ambient lighting frames the interior in a choice of 64 different colors.
The car will be offered with a choice of several engines, including a plug-in hybrid version.
