2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: Let the Sun Shine In
May 10, 2013
Of all the audio interfaces in our fleet, the one in our 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster is my favorite. It's intuitive, has great tactile response and most importantly, it doesn't become useless in the sun.
A few months back, I took umbrage with our long-term Subaru BRZ's stereo display and its issues with visibility.
This is an unedited photo of the Merc's stereo in the exact same conditions: the sun is up, shining bright from behind me, directly on the dash and in this case, the top is down. The screen is clear and visible, even in the light. Put this touch of practicality in the win column for the 200-mph roadster.
