The Mercedes-Benz SLK350 is all-new and much improved for the 2012 model year. In February, 2012, Mercedes will be adding the turbocharged 4-cylinder SLK250 at the bottom of the lineup, and the SLK55 AMG model at the top, and more performance and sophisticated style throughout.
For 2010, Mercedes-Benz introduces the limited production SLK300 Diamond White Edition. The car features Diamond White metallic paint, two-tone interior with baseball stitching, sport suspension and 18-inch AMG alloy wheels. Fewer than 100 copies will be sold in the U.S., so you best get your order in fast.
The SLK280 is replaced by the SLK300, which features the same engine but with a few more standard features. The SLK350 receives a bump in power to 300 horsepower and new 17-inch wheels. All SLK's receive slight exterior changes as well as a new variable ratio Direct Steering System.
With a retractable hardtop and Mercedes-Benz's innately high comfort level, the 2014 SLK roadster is satisfying to drive regardless of weather or road conditions. The latest generation of Mercedes' 2-seater is larger and roomier than past models, and its exterior design has matured into something truly elegant yet aggressive. A variety of engines – from a small and efficient 4-cylinder to a mighty AMG V8 – enable the 2014 SLK's performance to range from competent to blistering. Dynamically it still feels softer than the corner-carving Porsche Boxster, but the SLK's emphasis on comfort and prestige should come as no surprise for any car wearing the vaunted 3-Pointed Star, and those traits only add to this roadster's overall appeal.
