2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster Long-Term Road Test


2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG: Cargo Limits

April 25, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Judging from the exorbitant price of our long-term SLS AMG roadster and its likely demographic, I was pretty confident that my golf bag would fit. Sure enough, it did, but just barely.

Granted, I don't have a sensibly sized bag for walking a course, no, that's what golf carts are for. I have a fairly large one that is one step below a tour bag (the ones that the pros use to break the backs of their caddies).

It took some wrestling to get the 3-wood into a little nook in the trunk. I'm confident a driver would fit, too, but I try to avoid those clubs because they're evil. Pure evil, I say. There was also just enough room for my golf shoe bag.

But if you like hitting the links with friends, the SLS is not a suitable choice since only one bag will fit. Fortunately for me, I was playing with Riswick and he had the Tesla. Then again, the few rich dudes I know belong to private clubs and they have a locker for their gear. That effectively eliminates the cargo problem. Hooray for rich people!
