2dr Roadster SLK300
Starting at | Starting at 17 MPG City - 26 MPG Highway
The SLK-Class lacks in two things roadsters usually have in abundance: wind noise and poor rear visibility. This can be credited to the well-designed power-retractable hardtop, which works flawlessly. A perk of this luxury drop-top are the high-tech head restraints, which blow warm air on the driver's and passenger's necks to keep them warm even when the roof is open. Handling is sporty and quick, and the interior is as comfy as the ride. The SLK300 and SLK350 also achieve a respectable 26 mpg on the highway--impressive for a sporty convertible.
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class convertible is largely unchanged for 2011-- although the high-performance SLK55 AMG has been put on hold for the model year, it is scheduled to return for 2010 with mechanical updates.
The SLK300 has a 3.0L V6 under its long, sloped hood, while the SLK350 has a 3.5L V6. As one might surmise, the extra half-liter in an otherwise identical car makes a big difference. The 228-hp SLK300 with a 6-speed manual can reach 60 mph from a standstill in 6.1 seconds, while the 300-hp SLK350 with a 7-speed automatic does the same feat in only 5.4 seconds.
