2021 Porsche 911 vs. 2021 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

The 2021 Porsche 911 has a lot of things to offer its avid followers in New York. One is the fact that there are strong engines awaiting its would-be owners. Another is the addition of the Turbo and Turbo S trim to its lineup. The upscale and comfortable interior is one more thing to consider.

As for the 2021 version of the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, it promises that you will enjoy its well-appointed interior. It does not have a lot of amenities to offer, though.

Design & Style

The 2021 Porsche 911 is available in different trim levels, but expect that all of them can carry up to four passengers, regardless of size, shape, age, and height. For its interior, expect that luxurious feel; this is because of its high-end materials. You will definitely find the well-cushioned seats comfortable. The ride is truly enjoyable in this masculine vehicle.

For the 2021 Mercedes-Benz SL, it can only accommodate up to two occupants. This one comes with a retractable roof that has a glass panel included. This amenity is best enjoyed if the car is running at a speed of 25 miles per hour. While the interior looks upscale, the 911 looks better from the inside to the outside.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Porsche 911 gets its entertainment value from an infotainment system with a user-friendly 10.9-inch touch screen. This one easily responds to user inputs and displays vivid graphics. It also supports Apple CarPlay integration. Other features for the ride are the eight speakers, satellite radio, Bluetooth interface, and Wi-Fi hot spot. For safety, it is equipped with basic front and rear parking sensors, rearview camera, automatic emergency braking, and forward collision warning.

The Mercedes-Benz SL, on the other hand, uses an eight-inch touch screen for its COMAND infotainment system. It supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but it is not as modern in terms of overall technologies when compared to that of the 911. Other features are nine speakers, two USB ports, and Bluetooth. Safety equipment basically included in the vehicle are the Pre-Safe for automatic window roll up during frontal collision. It does not have front and rear parking sensors though, which is a must for sports cars.


The Porsche 911 has an already powerful base engine that aspirates 379 horsepower. The experience gets even more exciting with the Turbo S engine that generates a whopping 640 horsepower. For the SL, the base engine gives off 362-horsepower while the other engine gives it a power for 449 horses.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Porsche 911 knows how to impress in terms of personality. That oozing appeal is uplifted even more by its technologies and engine performance. It defeats the 2021 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.
