The Amazing 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK-roadster
"One of the Best Redesigned Vehicles of 2012 & the new SLK's interior is lavish, its exterior sexier and sportier than ever, and the open-air freedom of a retractable hardtop convertible is always captivating." -Kelly Blue Book
I have to agree with the above quote. I have always loved the SLK's, but the 2012 SLK topped it off. I remember driving the first 2012 SLK we had at the dealership. I was taking it to a show with the top down. This beautiful Mars Red SLK got so many looks as I drove down Blanding Blvd. I had to remind myself that they were looking at the car, not me! :)
There are three different models available:
- SLK250 - 201-hp, 1.8L turbo 4-cylinder
- SLK350 - 302-hp, 3.5L V6
- SLK55 AMG - 415-hp 5.5L V8
The SLK was one of the first retracable hardtops to come out. Mercedes-Benz has taken the SLK to another level. The new look of the SLK-class is aggressive, wider, and more aerodynamic. This sexy, hardtop convertible will cut through the wind and go from 0-60 in only 6.5 seconds. You can shift down the road in a 6-speed manual in the SLK250, or upgrade to a 7-speed automated manual (standard on SLK350 and enhanced on the SLK55 AMG). The new engines are cleaner for the environment, more powerful, and torquey.
First introduced in the SLK is Magic Sky Control. Just by pressing a button, the roof will change from tinted to clear to let more light in the cabin. It looks out UV and infrared light and still keeps the cabin cool. Magic Sky is definitely an option I would suggest when picking out your new SLK.
The top folds down in less than 20 seconds. Enjoy the top down all year long with Airscarf. Airscarf is located in the seat behind your neck and blows warm air to keep you warm.
