Like most Mercedes-Benz models, the 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class comes well equipped even in its most basic trim. For those who want more luxury, for 2008 Mercedes-Benz offers a full complement of optional features on the SLK-Class.

Offered as standard equipment on every 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is an extensive list of features that ConsumerGuide says includes "air conditioning w/dual-zone automatic climate controls." You'll also find a "leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls, cruise control, leather upholstery, height-adjustable bucket seats," and "remote keyless entry." Further, there's a "nine-speaker CD audio system," according to Edmunds. While the standard features list on the Mercedes-Benz 2008 SLK280 and SLK350 is identical in terms of features, ConsumerGuide notes that the 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG adds "power tilt/telescopic steering wheel, heated 8-way power seats," and "illuminated mirror visors."

Mentioned in nearly every review read by TheCarConnection.com is the "optional Airscarf neck-level heating system" in the Mercedes-Benz 2008 SLK-Class, which Cars.com finds will blow "warm air from the headrests." ForbesAutos reviewers find that feature particularly helpful for "convertible lovers who enjoy top-down motoring in the fall." Another desirable option on the Mercedes-Benz 2008 SLK-Class is the Harman Kardon audio system, and Kelley Blue Book says that other cool options include a navigation system and "HID headlamps."

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.
