The original Mercedes-Benz SLK was a car ahead of its time. The first modern car with a folding steel roof all wrapped up in a stylish little roadster. The second generation SLK not only has a new selection of powerplants but is now the driver’s car that the previous version always promised to be. It is altogether more refined and better equipped, competing well with the the other cars in its class. It was very hard to think of a good reason not to choose the Mercedes SLK …until the new BMW Z4 came along.
