Ten Second Review

The Mercedes SLK, now in its third generation, offers a tall stack of technology, amazingly economical engines (none more so than the 2.1-litre four-cylinder diesel), and an interior that's a whole lot smarter. The exterior styling may divide opinion but it won't put a significant brake on sales.

Background

Read most car magazines and they'd have you believe that the Mercedes-Benz SLK is a car playing perpetual catch up with its key rival, Porsche's Boxster. Playing and not succeeding. Away from the world of manufacturer press launches and free lunches, the reality is somewhat different. Since it was launched in 1996, the SLK has outsold the Boxster by more than two to one in terms of worldwide sales, which paints a rather different picture of how the general public views the head to head. The first generation car established the SLK template of long bonnet, compact cockpit and folding hard top roof that has proven such a success. It was replaced in 2004 by a more aggressively-styled car that was a good deal better to drive. The latest model looks to reprise the success of its predecessors, but put a more environmentally responsible slant on two-seater roadster ownership.

Driving Experience

Generation on generation, the SLK has been gaining ground as a rewarding driver's car. The latest car moves the game on in several key regards. Rather than try to be all things to all people, the SLK offers buyers the choice between a conventional steel suspension as standard, a sports suspension with stiffer springs and dampers for those looking for a more focused package while for those who wish to throw a few more pounds at the SLK, there's the Dynamic Handling package which features continuous adjustable automatic damping. Also included in the Dynamic Handling package are a Direct-Steer system which increasing agility at speed while retaining plenty of assistance at parking speeds. Torque Vectoring Brakes apply minute braking forces to the inside rear wheels through a corner to cut understeer at the front. All very clever. Prospective customers get to choose between a trio of petrol engines, all running under Mercedes' BlueEFFICIENCY eco banner. The true eco champ, however, fills up at the black pump. This is the first time the SLK has been offered with a diesel engine but it certainly doesn't put performance on the back burner in its quest to ratchet down fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Thanks to its bulging 500 Nm of torque, the 204bhp 2.1-litre unit enables the SLK to sprint to 62mph in just 6.7s and reach a top speed of 150mph, effectively matching the notably lively entry-level SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY petrol model, though the more effortless way it delivers its performance will be attraction enough for some. The SLK 250 CDI gets Mercedes' 7G-Tronic Plus automatic gearbox as standard and it's a brilliant match for the diesel engine's mid-biased torque delivery.

Design and Build

You'll probably have your own views on how well the SLS/CLS-style front end integrates with the rest of the SLK's lines. It's certainly big. The rear end looks a little more pert and the overall silhouette looks as neat, well-resolved and resistant to ageing as that of each of its predecessors. The cabin has been given a thorough reworking too, with cool contrasting colours and finishes that are a world away from the once typical coal hole German interior. The centre console and other trim parts gleam in brushed aluminium. Wood can be selected as an option in high-gloss dark brown walnut or high-gloss black ash. Four round, galvanised air outlets, integrated in the dashboard, emphasise that this model well and truly belongs to the Mercedes-Benz sports car family, their shape being a nod to those in the SLS. The folding hard top roof is offered in three guises. The standard version is a roof painted in the vehicle colour. Alternatively, you can opt for a dark tinted glass panoramic vario-roof. But the third variant is the real show stopper: the panoramic vario-roof with Magic Sky Control. This glass roof switches to light or dark as you wish at the touch of a button. At it's most transparent, the roof virtually disappears, offering an open-air ambience whatever the weather. In its dark state, the roof provides welcome shade and prevents the interior from heating up when the sun's rays are at their fiercest.

Market and Model

Standard equipment on the SLK includes smart features such as Airguide. Rather than the clumsy mesh draught stoppers that some convertibles opt for, Mercedes-Benz aerodynamics engineers have developed a pair of pivoting transparent plastic 'petals' which are attached to the reverse of the roll-over bars. The driver or passenger can rotate them from their stowed position behind the head rest to their 'active' position and cut draughts in a flash. Amid its sea of standard safety features are two of particular note. The drowsiness detection system Attention Assist warns the driver to take a break when they have been driving too long or their driving patterns change. Pre-Safe uses radar to detect an impending collision and primes the brakes, seatbelts and airbags. The optional Pre-Safe Brake system takes things one step further and automatically applies the brakes if the car detects that it's about to run into the back of something. The SLK has always done well here thanks to its beefy residual values propping up what was often a not inconsequential price tag. In latter years, fuel and emissions taxation have become a far bigger part of the annual financial equation for most owners, so with this generation, Mercedes hasn't just rolled out the BlueEFFICIENCY banner and driven down the costs of petrol-engined SLK day to day ownership, it also aims to set the bar for efficiency in its class with the diesel 250 CDI. The figures speak for themselves: 56.5mpg on the combined cycle, which equates to 132 g/km of CO2. Equivalent figures for the entry-level SLK 200 petrol, paired with the same automatic transmission, are 43.5mpg and 151 g/km of CO2. Step up to the SLK 250 and you'll hardly be penalised for the power advantage, this model returning an impressive 42.8mpg. As you might well expect from a car with more than 300bhp at its disposal, the SLK 350 isn't quite so parsimonious, but its 39.8mpg wouldn't have disgraced a shopping hatch not so very long ago.

PCP

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.

HP

Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.

This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.

One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.

Lease

Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
