The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
It may be the most pragmatic roadster of its kind, but the SLK 350 dares you to doubt its partying skills. The Infiniti G37 Convertible doesn't suffer the usual styling compromises, but it's a little less exciting to drive than its Coupe cousin.
