This Mercedes-Benz has really surprised me. Mercedes are world-renowned for their brilliant build quality and brilliant cars. The S-class and the CL coupe are terrific cars and can the SLK continue this feat? The SLK two-seater sits slightly lower than before and certainly looks a bit meaner too. However, the car remains very small and a little toy like. Newer engines have been introduced including a wonderful 3.2-lite V6 214 BHP! The old four-cylinder 2.3-litre still remains yet the power has been increased to 194 BHP. There is also a brand new 2.0-litre which creates 161 BHP. Both new engines are very impressive, typical Mercedes. Now, there is a manual box available in the UK. The good news is that it is a six-speed gearbox. However, the surprising thing is that both the 2.3-litre and the 3.2-litre V6 both do 0-60 quicker in automatic mode than in manual! However, the difference is very little. The Mercedes SLK is a tremendous car with a stunning interior, sweet sounding V6 engine and stunning sharp looks. Highly recommended!
