2015 Mercedes SL-Class, America's Rudest Drivers,'s Lexus ...

From The Car Connection : 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Review The 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL isn't a sports car, in the classic sense, but a very, very luxurious two-seat convertible that manages to blend nimble on-road behavior with seemingly effortless power. To quote its engineers, the SL is "the S-Class of sporty cars," providing a unique mix of attributes that distinguishes it from the elegant Jaguar F-Type, the Porsche 911 range, the Chevrolet Corvette, and the brutal but undeniably fast Dodge Viper.

It loses little cargo space to the gas Soul, but will be priced about $8,000 more.
