Mercedes-AMG has revealed details on its upcoming new-for-2022 SL’s interior.

The company says the new cockpit uses elements from the classic 300 SL Roadster and the modern era, blending analog and digital equipment into what AMG calls “hyperanalog.”

The automaker says the new car’s interior design promises a blend of old and new. “ Its transforming iconic elements from the first 300 SL Roadster into the modern era,” the company said.





As such, Mercedes-AMG thinks the new car will appeal to a “sporty target group” as well as customers looking for “maximum comfort.

“Fine materials, meticulous workmanship and attention to detail further underscore the high luxury standards in the interior,” AMG says.

The cockpit design is driver focused with an adjustable central display in the center console. The new car has 2+2 seating and thus more functionality and more space, while the new MBUX infotainment system offers a choice of several unique display styles and modes.

Mercedes is right when it says that the original 300 SL Roadster is among the most famous automotive designs, so it makes sense to use it as inspiration for the new Mercedes-AMG SL cockpit. To that end Benz says its designers were going for a a mix of analog geometry and a digital world. Mercedes calls it “hyperanalog.” A good example is the full digital instrument cluster integrated into a three-dimensional visor

The original 300 SL Roadster is among the most famous automotive design icons, according to Mercedes officials. They’re right.

“The interior of the new Mercedes-AMG SL pampers the driver and passengers with sophisticated luxury,” says Philipp Schiemer, Chairman of the Board of Management at Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

The 2022 version marks the first time the SL has had 2+2 seating for the first time since the 1989 R 129. If the rear seats aren’t needed the wind deflector can protect front seat passengers from wind at the back of the neck. Or the second row can be used for more storage, say, a golf bag.





Mercedes calls the seat design “avant-garde” and says that it “plays skillfully with layers and enveloping surfaces,” the idea being to make them lighter and less voluminous. The headrests are visually integrated into the backrest to make them look sporty.

The second-gen MBUX system is similar to the new S Class system, though some of the SL’s menu functions are AMG specific such as Performance or Track Pace menus, which show various changeable metrics and graphics. Other goodies include 64 (!) different colors for the ambient light.

Mercedes says that when its new roadster is unveiled later this year, “it will advance the iconic series with high comfort, remarkable design, precise driving dynamics and optimal packaging.”
