Mercedes SLK 200 Blue EFFICIENCY

The Mercedes SLK 200 remains the best driver’s car in the range (with the exception of the AMG of course); quick, fun to drive and with the option of a manual gearbox which suits the roadster better than the auto. While the larger engined cars have more power they lack the entertainment of this lightweight manual car.

The Mercedes Benz SLK range was given a major facelift in 2011 to fit in with the style of the new SLS AMG and keep the range fresh inline with stiff competition from BMW. Inside and out it has a whole new look but mechanically it is much as before. That’s no crime though it was and still is a great little sports car.
