The 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK will be a hardtop convertible with a glass roof that can change from transparent to color in seconds. For the first time, the SLK will be available with four-cylinder engine. Like its predecessor, the new Mercedes-Benz SLK was clearly inspired by current superstar Stuttgart. No more pointed nose of the outgoing Mercedes SLK SLR McLaren-imitating, replaced by the influence of the new supercar SLS. The large grid is almost upright and well ahead of all LED lights, lengthening the hood to the front end of SLK’s most powerful and dramatic.
The designers have done as a body for the new Mercedes Benz SLK, which emphasizes its classic roadster proportions and placed in the center of attention to exciting effect. Behind the long hood is a compact cockpit placed far behind, and a short tail. The Mercedes Benz SLK tempt potential customers with the key attributes that characterize all the classic roadsters of Mercedes Benz and have also made many of these automotive icons of the brand.
The new roof is the crowning glory of a slightly larger SLK that exhibits the classic sportscar proportions of a long bonnet and a short tail. With 7G equipped, the SLK200 is the most economical roadster in its segment, returning 46.3mpg, yet it still manages a 7.0sec 0-62mph time and 147mph top speed. The SLK250 returns 45.3mpg while hitting 62mph in 6.6sec and a 150mph top while the most powerful model, the SLK350, dashes to 62mph in just 5.6sec and is good for 155mph. Thanks to the new V6’s direct injection technology it will also return an impressive 39.7mpg, compared to its rival Z4’s 31.9mpg.

The clamor of being one of the first to have a SLK showed the public were ready for a roadster that could be as secure as a coupe when parked and more accurate when used in adverse weather conditions.
The new SLK continues the theme of ‘variable roof, but with an added touch. In addition to the standard upper body color and dark color panoramic option is a new version called Heaven Magic Mercedes control. This allows owners, with the touch of a button, to vary the amount of light entering to help keep the cabin cool in high temperatures or make it brighter when the time is boring.
conventional steel suspension comes as standard with an optional sport suspension with harder springs and dampers to rotate the credentials of the car drivers. This can be further enhanced with the dynamic handling package that offers continuously adjustable shock absorbers, power steering and speed-sensitive brake torque vector. The latter sends more power to the rear brake on the inside of the curve, the stabilization of the car.
