Mercedes-Benz SL convertible (2016 - )

The Mercedes SL is all about glamour, and it provides that in spades – just one reason why it’s become one of the most desirable convertibles over the years. But with strong competition from rivals like the BMW 8 Series Convertible and Jaguar F-Type, can the SL hold its own?

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Obviously, you don’t buy an SL if you live life on a shoestring, but compared with other luxury convertibles, the prices aren’t outrageously expensive. If you settle for the 400 model – which we suggest you do – your running costs won’t be too ruinous, either, with official fuel economy standing at a pretty reasonable 29.7mpg.

Heavy depreciation means it’ll cost you much more over the course of your ownership than either of the two rivals we’ve mentioned above, though at least the relatively innocuous fuel consumption is better than that of the Jaguar F-Type.
