Mercedes has scored a major hit with this upgrade to the SLK model. The styling is super sleek, especially the McLaren influenced nose. The interior is roomier than its predecessor and exudes a more luxurious,quiet and solid "Mercedes" like feel. Driving is a real pleasure with lots of torque and crisp acceleration helped out by the 7 speed automatic/"tiptronic" capable transmission. It can scoot to 60mph in times close to that of the 500SL. I traded a much loved 350Z to get this car and its convertible hardtop, and in spite of its much higher price point, I believe it delivers more complete satisfaction.
Sleek styling, especially the front. Great acceleration and power curve. Luxury interior and safety features. Quick operating convertible hardtop. Solid handling and cornering.
Better cup holders. Additional speakers in the rear.
