The 2016 SLK-Class
Shaped by the rushing wind and 122 years of racing wins, the SLK wraps its purebred performance in perfectly proportioned muscle. From its cross blade grille to its signature power hardtop, its passion is expressed openly. LED lighting and aluminum-trimmed roll bars assert its inner strengths with scintillating style.
Like the Gullwing doors of the iconic 300SL, the SLK’s hallmark is its power retractable hardtop. In under 20 seconds, it folds into the trunk, delivering open-air euphoria while leaving ample luggage space. Choose a standard Panorama roof with a tinted see-through panel, or the electrically variable tint of exclusive MAGIC SKY CONTROL®.
Pure sports-car magic: an open-air cockpit for two that tames the wind as your driving passions run wild. The SLK embraces you in impeccably tailored power sport seats, and engages you with a racing-inspired flat-bottom steering wheel. It can even extend the top-down driving season with its available AIRSCARF® neck-level heating system
Innovative engines turn less fuel into more power with fewer emissions. A new 241-hp 2.0-liter turbo-4 in the SLK300 and the 302-hp V-6 in the SLK350 get you to 60 in fewer seconds. And in mere milliseconds, their rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection fine-tune themselves on the fly, so all your getaways are cleaner.
Staggered-width wheels, a sport-tuned multilink suspension, a highly rigid body and innovative Direct-steer system team up for precise handling, crisp feedback and surprising refinement. Engineered to be cool and composed on city streets and confident in any corner, the SLK is easy to live with, yet always eager to live it up.
Handcrafted and signed by its own master engine builder, the 415-hp V-8 in the AMG® SLK55 is also a technological powerhouse. It joins forces with an AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® 7-speed and such handling advances as Torque Vectoring Brake. You can feel its racing pedigree in every rev, every move, and every snarl unleashed by its four polished tailpipes.
From standard wireless Bluetooth® audio streaming to available SiriusXM Radio, your playlist never has to end in the SLK. Its available 500-watt harman/kardon® surround sound keeps you in tune. Optional COMAND® navigation, including 5 years of SiriusXM Traffic and Weather, helps you stay on time, too.
