If you have your eye on a Mercedes-Benz sports car, and want something that is more affordable, then you need to take a look at the Mercedes-Benz SLK200.
The SLK200 is no slouch when it comes to performance – though it lacks the ferocity of the bigger SLK350. With 120 kW of power it competes well on the open road, and the supercharged in-line 4-cylinder has the pep to propel the little roadster from 0-100 km/h in just 7.9 seconds through a slick 6-speed manual gearbox. The dash is performed in 8.3 seconds for the very relaxing 5-speed automatic transmission. Drop the top and enjoy the performance and handling that Mercedes-Benz is noted for. The roadster is rear-wheel drive, and has an average fuel economy figure of under 10 Litres/100 km. Surely driving couldn’t be much more fun!
You can feel safe in the SLK200 with ABS anti-lock brakes and an Electronic Stability Programme to help keep you on the road. Dynamically, the grip levels are outstanding. Passive safety is top of the line, and so it is no surprise to find both front and side airbags being provided as standard items. A cleverly designed Distronic Parking sensory system helps you “save face” at the shopping mall.
Mercedes-Benz also made the SLK200 comfortable, with well designed seats that provide comfort for those long drives. There is a CD player with RDS and satellite navigation, plus leather seats, electric mirrors and dual climate control.
The Mercedes-Benz SLK200 is a fun drive. You will turn heads, so be warned! Drop the roof and see why the SLK200 is the right vehicle for you!
