The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK doesn’t have the edgy driving experience of other roadsters, but it keeps you comfortable, looks fast, and is fast. The TT is a little more engaging to drive than before, but it doesn’t stand out in the crowd quite like the original one did when it was new.
