The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is more of a weekend-getaway machine than a canyon-carver; but with mini-SL style and some unrivaled tech features, if offers up roadster thrills with fewer sacrifices in comfort. The 2015 Jaguar F-Type fleshes out its sportscar credentials this year with a manual transmission and all-wheel drive.
