CAR OF THE YEAR 2012 - THE WINNERS

Cabriolet

Cabriolet Of The Year 2012, Mercedes-Benz SL 350 (A)

Cabriolet
While most might have put their money down on the Boxster S, the Mercedes-Benz SL 350 winning might come as a surprise. Ok, so it may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but the SL 350 is truly a cabriolet that is luxurious, stylish, comfortable and a hoot to blast down any straight tarmac.
You can never ignore that rumbling V6, waiting to be unleashed – it rewards with such glorious melody when you let the revs pile on. Roof up or roof down, this cabriolet feels well sorted with zero scuttle shake. The steering is nicely weighted; suspension sorted… well… just confirms why it gets the title of ‘Cabriolet of the Year’.
