Let’s talk about the technical characteristics of the updated 2018-2019 Mercedes-Benz SL (R231). Like the pre-reform model of the SL restyled version of the new items are offered solely with petrol bi-turbo and twin-turbo engine, fully independent wheel suspension (front two-lever, rear five-lever), but instead 7AKPP (7G-TRONIC PLUS) set a modern 9 automatic (9G-Tronic), which allows to improve the dynamic characteristics of the German premium roadster and reduce fuel consumption.
