2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: Seat Comfort Over 3,000 Miles

March 18, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

A few weeks ago my good friend John Pearley Huffman and I drove our long-term 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster from our Santa Monica, California office to South Dakota and back. And I'm very happy to report that our buttocks lived to tell the tale.

The seats in the SLS are nothing short of remarkable. Very comfortable. Very supportive. The supercar would manage nearly 400 miles per tank of fuel and we never had to stop early because of back or butt pain.

On the fourth day of the trip we decided to push. We logged 985 miles and still arrived in Las Vegas feeling human. Impressive considering the SLS isn't exactly the roomiest car out there. Great seats.

If you missed it, you can read about the entire road trip here and check out at huge photo gallery of our adventure here.

    Since no one will say it, I will: Wtf is with this photo? Am I supposed to be looking at the enormous person in the restaurant, or the hazy image of the car outside the dirty window?
