The SL interior continues to offer the perfect combination of elegance and sportiness through a modern version of a classic design. The instrument cluster features two round cylinders housing the speedometer and tachometer, with an information screen between the two gauges. The four round air vents, flat-bottom steering wheel and metal shift paddles behind the steering wheel add to the sporty feel. An infotainment screen gets nicely integrated between the two center vents, bucking the current design trend of positioning the screen to protrude from the top of the dashboard like a tablet. An analog clock sits in the center of the dash. A new Saddle Brown interior becomes part of an extensive choice of colors, leather finishes and trim options to individualize the cabin. LED ambient lighting allows the driver to choose between solar red, polar blue or polar white.
