When you’re searching for a new performance-driven coupe with luxury features to take your Burbank drives to new heights, two major players come to mind: Bentley and Mercedes-Benz. Renowned for premium power and refined amenities, each manufacturer offers a sporty coupe that delivers style and elegance: the Bentley Continental GT and the Mercedes-Benz AMG SL Roadster. Compare two of the most popular trims of each model, the Bentley Continental Azure and the Mercedes-Benz AMG SL 55 Roadster, with Bentley Pasadena to see which model will offer you the most elevated ride through Los Angeles. 



2023 Continental vs. SL Roadster: Performance

A main decider in any premium sports model is performance. Savvy drivers will want to ensure that the model they choose will have the power and capability they crave for the Glendale roads, and, in this case, either the Continental GT Azure or SL Roadster can provide. That said, though the Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster is impressive, it can’t compete with the output of the Bentley Continental Azure twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Take a look at the Continental vs. SL Roadster performance specs below to see how each engine stacks up:

Bentley Continental Azure Engine

  • Engine: 4.0L Twin-Turbocharged V8
  • Horsepower: 542 hp
  • Torque: 568 lb-ft
  • 0-60 MPH Acceleration: 3.9 seconds
  • Top Speed: 198 mph

Mercedes-Benz AMG SL 55 Roadster Engine

  • Engine: 4.0L Biturbo V8
  • Horsepower: 469 hp
  • Torque: 516 lb-ft
  • 0-60 MPH Acceleration: 3.8 seconds
  • Top Speed: 183 mph

2023 Continental vs. SL Roadster: Advanced Tech & Customization

In addition to offering more standard power, the Bentley Continental GT Azure is also equipped with more advanced technology and customization options. While the Mercedes-Benz AMG SL 55 Roadster comes with a wide range of exterior and interior design options, only on the Bentley Continental GT Azure can customers enjoy over 80 exterior colors and a near-infinite configuration of interior hide, veneer, and technical finishes to create their personalized dream coupe. Complementing that customization is the array of standard high-tech amenities that the SL Roadster can’t quite beat, such as a 12.3-inch central touchscreen (as opposed to the Roadster’s 11.9-inch screen) and the exclusive Night Vision safety feature, which gives drivers even more visibility on the dark Pasadena roads.
