2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK 250

What We Like

Marvelous retractable hardtop; an engine for every occasion; unruffled high-speed demeanor; capable handling; high-quality interior; great fuel economy

What We Don't

Arguably awkward styling; golf bags won't fit in the trunk with the top down; you could get a lightly used SL for the same price

What's New in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK 250?

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is essentially unchanged, except that the panorama roof is now standard on every model

Which SLK 250 is the Best?

Call us deranged, but the SLK55 AMG is the one that calls our name. You may think the other motors are sufficient (and in truth, they are), but you'll think twice after giving that V8 a workout.

How Much Does a 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK 250 Cost?

The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class comes in three trim levels: the SLK250, SLK350 and SLK55 AMG.

Standard features on the SLK250 ($44,450) include a 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and a 6-speed manual transmission. Options include a sport body styling package ($2,500), a lighting package ($1,390) and the instantly tinting MAGIC SKY CONTROL feature on the panorama roof ($2,500). Also optional is a multimedia package that combines navigation with satellite radio ($2,220), a premium package with heated seats, Airscarf, a Logic7 surround sound system ($2,590) and keyless go ($650).

The SLK350 ($56,225) uprates the engine to a 302 hp 3.5-liter V6 and a standard 7-speed automatic gearbox with staggered wheels and tires, combining the premium package, Logic7 surround sound, satellite radio and the Airscarf neck-warming system at no extra cost.

The SLK55 AMG ($68,925) escalates to a 415-hp V8 and the expected chassis, suspension and brake upgrades.

Is the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK 250 a Safe Car?

The SLK-Class comes with standard stability control, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, 10 airbags, active headrests, aluminum roll bars behind those headrests and a slew of computer-driven safety systems, including a driver-drowsiness monitor.

Every SLK also comes with the mbrace2 safety telematics suite, which connects your car, computer and/or compatible smartphone to both cloud-based and GPS technology, enhancing emergency response times and the like.

Like most luxury vehicles of its ilk, the SLK has not been subjected to any crash tests on American soil.

2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK 250 vs the competition

BMW Z4 -- As a compact hardtop roadster, the Z4 is really the SLK's only direct competitor, but it's a formidable one, featuring silky-smooth turbocharged engines and styling that's more pleasing to our eye.

Porsche Boxster -- The 2014 Boxster still uses a vinyl soft-top, so it lacks the SLK's serene top-up character. But serenity is hardly the point of a Porsche. What Boxster gives up in refinement, it reclaims in pure driving pleasure.

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible -- The completely redesigned C7 Corvette Stingray offers an impressive performance-to-value ratio, though we suspect it's less likely that buyers will cross-shop this American muscle car against the smaller Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.
