I had the opportunity to drive Mercedes Benz SL350

I had the opportunity to drive Mercedes Benz SL350 and was pleasantly surprised with its engine responsiveness and performance. Being a luxury model, the car is expected to have a average performance. However, Mercedes Benz SL350 has a V6 3498cc diesel engine that delivers maximum power of 316ps at the rate of 6500rpm.

Mercedes Benz is known for manufacturing world class cars that primarily delivers royal luxuries. Simple yet useful features inside the car are electrically adjustable and heated exterior mirrors, outside temperature display, electrically adjustable steering with memory and steering wheel with speed sensing system.

I found the superior quality air-conditioning system to have automated climate control combination filter and residual engine heat utilisation. The spacious cabin is further well equipped with armrests cum centre console with storage unit, cup-holders and driver and co-driver foot-well lighting.

The driving experience has been made so much easier with courtesy lights in the doors, indicators integrated in the exterior mirror, tyre pressure loss warning signals and multi-functional steering wheel.

I have always looked for maximum safety features in any kind of car and Mercedes Benz SL350 doesn't compromise on this aspect. Anti-lock Braking system, driver passenger air-bags with head and thorax side-bags, central locking and cruise control with variable speed limiter are a few safety features of this car.
