Expert Quotes:

A performance car for those who refuse to sacrifice luxury
Popular Mechanics

Cabin is definitely cozy if you're around 6 feet tall
Cars.com

Soft, high-quality plastics complement supportive yet nicely cushioned seats
Edmunds

The 2010 Benz SLK has one of the most comfortable and luxurious cabins in its class. Most drivers will be pleasantly surrounded by ample leg- and headroom, though Cars.com notes that the "cabin is definitely cozy if you're around 6 feet tall," and that "even though [they] were able to get relatively comfortable, [they were] never able to put the seat exactly" where they wanted to.

The SLK's seats are proportioned generously, with sporty bolsters and plenty of lumbar support for advanced maneuvers. Kelley Blue Book reviewers love the "supportive bucket seats" on the Mercedes-Benz 2010 SLK-Class, while Edmunds mentions the "power heated sport seats."

Cargo space suffers when the retractable hardtop is lowered, though. Edmunds says "the folded top naturally eats up trunk space" and leaves just "6.5 cubic feet" for luggage and carry-ons. While the "retractable hardtop still eats up trunk space," Kelley Blue Book asserts "the design responsibly leaves some usable room for storing small luggage and valuables."

This SLK is far better finished inside than the previous car, and various trim options give it even more of a custom look. Kelley Blue Book observes "the perfectly aligned side bodylines appear as though carved from a single block of steel," while Edmunds says that the interior "materials are generally beyond reproach," with "soft, high-quality plastics" throughout. Cars.com reviewers find "a little bit of wind noise can penetrate the cabin on the highway with the top up," but Popular Mechanics reports "top-up motoring is appropriately insulated thanks to the folding hardtop."

Conclusion

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class pampers most drivers with ample space and comfort, though the folding top cuts into cargo room.

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.
