Exterior design
The dynamic potential which lurks in the SLK-Class is immediately apparent. The width-emphasizing
lines and the perfect sports car proportions provide for a noticeably bolder presence on the road.

Front design
The front view of the SLK-Class chimes in with today’s
Mercedes-Benz sports car family comprising the SLS
AMG and the SL-Class. At the same time, it also reveals
its origins – the proportions of the headlamps and radiator grille evoking the legendary 190 SL, a forebear from
the 1950s.

SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY in palladium silver metallic

Side design
With its top open or closed, the SLK-Class demonstrates
an impressively sporty character. The side view reveals
its perfect sports car proportions: long bonnet, short rear
section. The vehicle appears to be accelerating even when
stationary.

SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY in palladium silver metallic, roof open

Rear-end design
Similarly to the front, the rear-end design also highlights
the vehicle’s powerful character. Elements of the front
design, such as the V-shape, are also to be found at the
rear.

Roof systems
The highly successful vario-roof is an attractive feature from any angle, and blends harmoniously
into the overall design. The improved soft top mechanism opens and closes the roof in less than
20 seconds. In addition to the standard roof in the vehicle’s exterior colour, the world-first MAGIC
SKY CONTROL panoramic vario-roof (optional), a glass roof with variable transparency, and the
dark-tinted panoramic vario-roof (optional) are also optionally available.

MAGIC SKY CONTROL panoramic vario-roof
• brighter and more friendly interior
• light coming in from above gives the impression of
open-top motoring, even when the roof is closed
• the interior heats up less when the glass is tinted
• less glare when the glass roof is tinted, and therefore
greater interior comfort
• a unique feature in the automotive sector

BlueEFFICIENCY
The SLK-Class reconciles driving pleasure and low fuel consumption in consummate style.
The BlueEFFICIENCY measures are tailored specifically to the different engine and equipment
variants. For design reasons, the BlueEFFICIENCY badge has been omitted from both wings.

Current fuel consumption displayed in the instrument cluster

All engine variants feature:
• ECO start/stop function as standard
• a lightweight body
• tyres with reduced rolling resistance for optimised
fuel consumption
• 7G-TRONIC PLUS designed for fuel efficiency
• aerodynamically optimised exterior mirrors
• gearshift recommendation in the instrument cluster
for vehicles with manual transmission
• current fuel consumption displayed in the instrument
cluster
SLK 200 measures
• adjustable radiator shutter improves aerodynamics,
thereby reducing fuel consumption and ensuring that
• the engine attains its operating temperature more
quickly, reduced noise emissions when the radiator
• shutter is closed
• rear-axle ratio optimised for maximum fuel efficiency
• drag-optimised wheels (optional)

SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY

Downsizing for SLK 250
• 4-cylinder in-line petrol engine with homogeneous
direct injection and turbocharger produces power
output/torque comparable to that of the V6 engine
without turbocharging. Advantages: reduced weight,
reduced internal friction in the engine, fuel savings
of over 30%.

Summary

The SLK with direct petrol injection,
7G-TRONIC PLUS and the ECO start/
stop function is the most economical
roadster and the fastest SLK of all time.
No competitor is able to offer safety
systems such as ATTENTION ASSIST or
DISTRONIC PLUS, or the fast internet
access provided by COMAND Online.
Not to mention the panoramic varioroof MAGIC SKY CONTROL as a world
first. While the BMW Z4 also offers
a hydraulic hardtop, it is of inferior
design. No panoramic roof option is
available from BMW, nor a neck-level
heating system. The 6-cylinder in-line
petrol engines are however reassuringly powerful and refined. The Audi TT
Roadster also lacks these features,
though its 4-cylinder direct-injection
engines deliver a convincing package
of responsiveness, fun and efficiency.
With front-wheel drive as standard,
the Audi TT is however not competitive.
The equipment portfolio shows that the
TT is one of the more dated models in
the segment. Hard-disc navigation,
voice-operated control, neck-level heating and proximity control are not available. The Porsche Boxster is the athlete
among the roadsters, with agile handling that sets the standard in this
segment. Unfortunately however, all
other attributes of the Boxster come
secondary to dynamic performance.
A high noise level, hard suspension,
shortcomings in safety features, lack
of day-to-day suitability and high fuel
consumption are the result.
