<p>The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class </p> <p>The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class</p> <p>used-carsThe SLK-Class is the baby sports-car in the Mercedes-Benz range. It was the first 2-seater on the market with a re-tractable folding hardtop, providing coupe-like safety as well as comfort. The fold-down hardtop is easily activated. The SLK-Class RangeThe SLK250 is the entry-level with a new 148 Kw turbo-charged four-cylinder engine with a manual 6-speed or optional seven-speed automatic gearbox.The SLK350 boasts a more powerful 222 Kw direct-injection V6 teamed with a paddle-shifted seven-speed automatic. The SLK55 AMG tops the range with a 305 Kw hand-built 5.5-litre V8 engine that uses automatic stop/start and cylinder de-activation to improve fuel economy. </p> <p>Safety FeaturesAll SLK models include eight airbags, active head restraints, tire pressure monitoring, stability and traction control, anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, and the mbrace2 emergency communication system. OptionsOptions include Bi-xenon headlights with active curve illumination, hard-drive based navigation system, AIRSCARF neck-level heating, harman/kardon audio system and the world's first MAGIC SKY CONTROL electro-chromic roof.For 2015, AMG Body Styling is standard on the SLK350 and the Lighting Package (active Bi-Xenon headlights) is standard on the SLK55 AMG as well.</p> <p>Comments from International Motor Publications"In other respects, the SLK is the consummate luxury hardtop convertible, as long as you don't mind driving a pint-sized car instead of something like the relatively imposing SL. Indeed, that's the only real compromise the SLK demands. If you're looking for a small roadster with a grand-touring pedigree, the SLK is hard to beat." -- AutoTrader"But with its noble lineage and well-rounded nature, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class will always be a strong draw in this small segment. And for those who prefer not to pay SL money for a luxury convertible, the comparatively affordable Mercedes SLK just might be the next best thing." -- Edmunds"Now in its third generation, the latest SLK provides a much better balance between handling and comfort while continuing to offer the versatile hardtop convertible configuration that made the original a hit." -- Left Lane News"The latest generation of Mercedes' 2-seater is larger and roomier than past models, and its exterior design has matured into something truly elegant yet aggressive. A variety of engines - from a small and efficient 4-cylinder to a mighty AMG V8 - enable the 2014 SLK's performance to range from competent to blistering. Dynamically it still feels softer than the corner-carving Porsche Boxster, but the SLK's emphasis on comfort and prestige should come as no surprise for any car wearing the vaunted 3-Pointed Star, and those traits only add to this roadster's overall appeal." -- Kelley Blue Book</p>
