Even in standard specification, the V6 sports car boasts the high-tech features which also distinguish the SL 500 presented in autumn 2001. These include the vario-roof, Sensotronic Brake Control, automatic roll-over bar, electrically adjustable integral seats, adaptive airbags for driver and passenger, and large head-thorax sidebags. The Mercedes sports car is also fitted as standard with a stereo radio system, sensor-controlled automatic climate control, xenon headlamps, high-quality aluminium trim and seat covers in a sporty fabric/leather combination.

Mercedes-Benz has connected the V6 engine with the Sequentronic automated six-speed transmission, which SL 350 drivers can operate from the steering wheel, as in a racing car. Two rocker switches on the back of the steering wheel spokes allow particularly fast gear-change at the touch of a button. In addition, Sequentronic offers two gearshift programs (Comfort and Sport), which drivers can use to adapt the characteristics of the transmission to their personal driving style. Meanwhile, auto-shift mode is available for stop-and-go traffic conditions. This function enables Sequentronic to change gear automatically.

The new six-cylinder SL-Class model also has the same chassis construction as the SL 500, with the exception of the Active Body Control spring/damper control system. This means that the SL 350 also features four-link front suspension and multi-link independent rear suspension made from aluminium and disc brakes on all wheels, which are applied by the Sensotronic Brake Control electrohydraulic high-pressure braking system in response to the driving situation in hand.
