You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

All SL-Class models come with large ventilated disc brake systems with ABS and EBD, ESP (electronic stability program), traction control, ABC (automatic body control) air suspension, front and side air bags, driver knee bag, and an automatically deployable rollover bar behind the seats.For 2008, the Mercedes-Benz SL Class is largely carried over, save for new premium nappa leather available as an option for the SL550.
