The Mercedes SLK takes sporty luxury to a new level in the impressive third-generation hardtop roadster. To find out why Mercedes lovers are calling this the most revolutionary Mercedes SLK ever made, continue reading.
Cutting-Edge Hardtop Design
What truly establishes the Mercedes SLK350 as an advanced convertible is its impressive hardtop. The first-generation SLK class is credited for starting the hardtop trend. So, it’s no surprise that Mercedes wanted to hark back to the beloved original with the third-generation hardtop convertible. There are three different power roofs available: a polycarbonate, which comes standard; a roof featuring a built-in panorama sunroof made of tinted polycarbonate; and the top-of-the-line Magic Sky Control roof. This option allows you to electronically choose the transparency of the roof inside of the cabin using nano-particle manipulation technology.
In a Mercedes SLK350, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to enjoy a top-down experience, even in cooler temperatures. That’s why Mercedes designed the Air Guides system that keeps airflow manageable inside of the cabin. Engineers also implemented the AIRSCARF system that blows hot air on the back of the driver’s neck.
A brand-new 3.5L direct-injection V6 with multi-spark ignition is standard on the SLK350. This engine, coupled with the 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission, accomplishes 302 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough power to accelerate the SLK350 to 60 mph from a standstill in about 5.5 seconds.
Mercedes engineers labored diligently to retune the suspension of the SLK. This year, the Mercedes SLK’s ride provides an ideal balance between luxurious cruising and sporty, precise control.
