(2005 model shown)




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.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
