Mercedes-Benz SLK 250 CDI
The Mercedes-Benz SLK 250 CDI is a highly desirable car with a great deal of style, power and economy. There is no doubt that the car is better looking and a better all round car than the Audi TT.
The standard diesel CDI value is well worth the money. Previously the car was mainly for cruising and more of a “show-off” type of vehicle. Amazingly the car has gone on to become a sensational sports car and is taken very seriously by those who have a need for speed.
The twin exhausts are quite sporty looking, being of quite a wide profile. The car sits quite low to the road, giving it a wonderful sporty type of look and better handling too. The front side has a huge Mercedes emblem placed along the grill with the LED lights and shapely wonderfully and suit the vehicle shape overall.
The vehicle has dominating 18 inch alloys with an AMG bodykit. The SLK 205 CDI is certain to turn heads whilst on the road. The interior of the vehicle is as luxurious as you would expect from any interior within a Mercedes. The attention to detail is marvellous with patterned dials and contrasting stitching. The red ambient lights come at a cost of £245 with the panoramic vario roof costing £410. These extras are not essential but do look quite good inside.
The DAB digital radio along with its USB audio connection and its Bluetooth connection are standard features. Mercedes have taken the strange step of not offering cup holders or rain sensing wipers in the standard equipment list.
The roof takes 17 seconds to lower its roof which is two seconds longer than the Audi TT. The Mercedes SLK 205 CDI does however have more boot space, with the car being the more practical one overall.
Its performance is what has catapulted the vehicle into the limelight as a high end sports car. The 2.1 litre diesel is able to reach 0 – 60 MPH in just 6.7 seconds. That’s an impressive reading from a diesel.
It’s comforting drive too. The refinement in the car is of an exceptional level helping to drown out uncomfortable noises along the way. The Mercedes SLK 250 CDI is a great car and one of the best roadsters available.
