Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

There’s no shortage of safety equipment, with an abundance of airbags, a traction control system and cruise control that reacts to vehicles in front of you. An alarm and immobiliser are standard.

The huge boot of the coupé is compromised due to the roof storage, however luggage space is still reasonable and there's always the back seats to supplement your load carrying needs. The roof needs to have its tonneau cover manually fixed which rather defeats the object of having an electric roof and makes the Mercedes SL's folding hard top seem even more appealing.
