2016 SLK-Class Overview

The Mercedes-Benz SLK is styled like a scaled-down SL-Class model.Fitted with a retractable hardtop, the SLK melds roadster excitement with Mercedes-Benz comfort.

Introduced for the 2011 model year, the SLK will be redesigned and renamed SLC for 2017.

For its part, the 2016 SLK gets a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine as standard equipment, replacing the previous 1.8-liter engine.The new 2.0-liter engine in the 2016 SLK300 makes 241 horsepower and 273 foot-pounds of torque and can reach 60 mph from a standing start in fewer than 6 seconds.Fuel efficiency has improved, and the SLK300 is EPA-rated at 25/32 mpg City/Highway.

No changes for the 2016 SLK350, which comes with a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 302 horsepower, mating with a 9-speed automatic transmission.Topping the roster is the SLK55 AMG, packing a V8 that sends 415 horsepower to a sharper-shifting AMG Speedshift transmission.

For 2016, a newly available AMG Carbon Styling Package conveys a dark, technical, appearance.AMG bodywork is offered as an option for the 2016 SLK300.

With the retractable hardtop up, the cockpit is tight, quiet and refined, a little too tight for taller drivers.Mercedes-Benz offers distinct features to enhance the top-down experience, such as Airscarf, which blows warm air at the driver's neck.

Basically maintaining the same profile through its lifespan, the SLK evolved into quite a graceful sports car.Redesigned for 2012, the third-generation model slips between the original blocky design and the overly styled second generation.

Exterior dimensions classify the SLK as a subcompact, but it's actually a roadster with a traditional long hood and rear-wheel drive.Though aimed at a different audience that its main rivals, the BMW Z4 and Porsche Boxster, the SLK provides stimulating drivability for daily commutes, as well as the precision performance that can turn a weekend trek into an adventure.Because of the retracting roof, trunk space trails that of soft-top competitors.

All models include Attention Assist, which senses if you're growing drowsy.The mbrace2 telematics assists with roadside emergencies.

For 2016, blind-spot assistance is a standalone option.The Driver Assistance Package includes blind-spot assistance and adds Pre-Safe, Distronic Plus smart cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive highbeam assist.Optional front/rear parking sensors permit automated parallel-parking, with the driver operating only the gas and brake pedals.
