The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class combines the romance of a small roadster with grand-touring comfort, as well as the poise and performance of a larger sportscar.
