The new roadster blends light-footed sportiness with stylish comfort, a striking sports-car design with total suitability for everyday use, top performance with exemplary ecology.
With magic sky control, which switches to light or dark at the touch of a button. Exemplary efficiency and sporty flair come courtesy of powerful new four and six-cylinder engines featuring the standard-specification ECO start/stop function.
There will initially be three models of the SLK available at its market launch, all of them powered by new engines with direct injection. The four-cylinder engines in the SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY and SLK 250 BlueEFFICIENCY develop 135kW (184hp) and 150kW (204hp) respectively from a displacement of 1796 cubic centimetres.
The third generation of the powerful trend-setter will make use of a whole host of the latest assistance systems to support the driver, including the drowsiness detection system attention assist, developed by Mercedes-Benz and fitted as standard.
Dieter Zetsche, chairman of the board of management of Daimler and head of Mercedes-Benz Cars, said: â€œThe new SLK embodies the role of the trend-setter like no other car. I am convinced that with its passionate design, its high-quality interior and its modesty at the filling station it will continue to provide an enormous amount of fun on the road in future, too, consolidating its status as a cult roadster.â€
Will the new car enhance sales for the automaker?
