Don’t get fooled by the sporty it’s much better as a tourer.

Convertibles are just So When the weather is right, no denying the charm of driving a billion square kilometres of sky you and the wind in your hair. convertibles however are not too practical in a like ours there’s too much dust and paan around to fully enjoy the experience on most days.

Not this Merc though. its folding metal roof, it you the security of a fixed roof on days and, when on a scenic road with a blue sky, it allows you to the top in just 16 seconds.

It’s sheer desirability the SL350 convertible is all about. It stunning, especially with the down, and by Indian standards is a full-fledged exotic. The long the mean-looking front and the long result in the perfect interplay of and surfaces. The hard-top doesn’t too much away from the either the SL looks great

with the roof up.

However, be fooled by its sporty looks. The SL, with this engine, is no The 3.5-litre, 316bhp motor is the as the one in the much lighter SLK350. You this when you want acceleration or to overtake quickly on a road the SL takes time to momentum. It is primarily the car’s 1.8-tonne kerb weight at (more than 300kg than the SLK) and the seven-speed isn’t the quickest around In terms of outright performance, the takes 8.09sec to reach which is no great shakes by standards, and tops out at 250kph. acceleration times are nothing either.

The key to enjoying this car is to drive it at less than 100 percent. when you’ll discover it has a easy gait at triple-digit and that it is more than maintaining those speeds all day This chassis has a phenomenal to mask speed, has incredible and good body control, it all the more suited to relaxed crossing. The effortless manner in it cruises and its unflappable poise this Merc feel it’s never going to into a sweat. The handling is helped by the fact that suspension hasn’t been to deal with Indian The steering could have with more feel but it is and the brakes are perfectly weighted, and you find yourself going and harder without much of a

The biggest surprise though is the way the takes to our potholed roads. the worst surfaces are dealt well you are comfortable in the cabin and quality is nothing short of Like with most you expect a fair amount of shake but surprisingly the SL’s retains its composure and vibrations are out pretty well.

The SL’s cabin is a special too. The large seats are comfy and interior quality is Everything is solidly built the function with a nice feel and, apart the mirror controls which and look cheap, there are no Luggage space is at a premium especially with the roof

Buy the SL350 for the relaxed cruiser it is. Buy it for its dual-purpose nature.

Buy it if you like life at a stylish, pace. If not, there are ways to spend Rs 90 lakh.
