Mercedes-Benz SLK Overview
The SLK features a retractable hard top that does a great job at keeping the interior quiet. The base SLK250 features a 1.8-liter, 201-hp turbo four-cylinder that delivers ample thrust. Our tested SLK250 with the six-speed manual returned a very good 26-mpg overall, but we weren't impressed with the rubbery shifter action. The more powerful V6 and V8 engines come with a seven-speed automatic, which is a better choice. Handling is crisp and enjoyable, though inattentive drivers may be surprised at the SLK's limits due to its late-acting stability control. The ride is firm but refined enough even for lengthy trips. The small cabin is well-finished but narrow.
