2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG: Quickest Grocery Getter Around

March 29, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Would the typical 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG owner use his or her SLS to go grocery shopping? I'd hope that said owner would have more suitable vehicles available in the garage for such tasks (my humble suggestion: the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6).

Still, the SLS works out all right if you press it into service for such things. I managed to fit four reusable grocery bags in the SLS's 6.1-cubic-foot trunk without issue. Just don't leave your ice cream back there very long. With the SLS's transmission (transaxle) mounted in the rear of the car, it can get pretty warm inside the trunk due to the tranny's heat.
