The SLK roadster was redesigned last year with sleeker styling borrowed from the SL roadster, along with added capabilities. A new base model, the SLK280 debuts for 2006 that's powered by a 3.0-liter, 228-horsepower twin-cam V-6 engine. Remaining in the line is the SLK350 and its 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine, along with the top SLK32 AMG and its 349-horsepower supercharged 3.2-liter V-6. Transmission choices include a six-speed-manual and a seven-speed-automatic gearbox with TouchShift operation. The car rides on 17-inch alloy wheels and performance tires, and a lowered sport suspension is offered for more aggressive motoring. The car's interior is adorned with silver trim and switchgear, with a dashboard that flows into the door panels and an instrument panel that sports large, chronograph-style gauges. Its power retractable hardtop can incorporate an optional feature that channels warm air from vents located in the driver and passenger's headrests for open-air use on chillier days. Standard equipment includes four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes, front side and knee airbags, Automatic Slip Program, and Electronic Stability Program. Power heated seats, a premium Harmon Kardon audio system, run-flat tires, and an interface that allows an Apple iPod MP3 player to integrate with the car's audio system are optional.
