SLK-Class

 

The SLK roadster was redesigned last year with sleeker styling borrowed from the SL roadster, along with added capabilities. A new base model, the SLK280 debuts for 2006 that's powered by a 3.0-liter, 228-horsepower twin-cam V-6 engine. Remaining in the line is the SLK350 and its 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine, along with the top SLK32 AMG and its 349-horsepower supercharged 3.2-liter V-6. Transmission choices include a six-speed-manual and a seven-speed-automatic gearbox with TouchShift operation. The car rides on 17-inch alloy wheels and performance tires, and a lowered sport suspension is offered for more aggressive motoring. The car's interior is adorned with silver trim and switchgear, with a dashboard that flows into the door panels and an instrument panel that sports large, chronograph-style gauges. Its power retractable hardtop can incorporate an optional feature that channels warm air from vents located in the driver and passenger's headrests for open-air use on chillier days. Standard equipment includes four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes, front side and knee airbags, Automatic Slip Program, and Electronic Stability Program. Power heated seats, a premium Harmon Kardon audio system, run-flat tires, and an interface that allows an Apple iPod MP3 player to integrate with the car's audio system are optional.

Having driven all manner of four door sedans during my 40 years as a sales rep, I splurged and purchased my 2015 SLK 250 as a sort of retirement gift. I have had the vehicle for about a month and all I can say... + More »
