Mercedes-Benz SLK 2.3 SLK230 KOMPRESSOR 2d 190 BHP

Pretty little two seater with some neat visual design cues that managed to stay popular right up to its replacement. Still a sturdy yet reasonably sporty drive with oodles of kudos; metal folding roof is so practical. Holds its value well. The definitive footballer's wife's car.Acheived a four-star Euro NCAP rating thanks to a strong bodyshell and four airbags. As with all Mercedes-Benzmodels, it lacks deadlocks, which is a plus for safety and a minus for security. An alarm and immobiliser are fitted as standard. That clever folding roof eating into boot space considerably, so this is not the car to get if you are looking at a lot of touring. however it will cope well enough with a trip to the shops - in fact dare we suggest that's what it was built for.Obedient; good balance and grip; safe, stable but just a touch sedate. Mercedes' manual gearbox is typically un-sporty to use, and as such the automatic gearbox is the more popular model. The cockpit is quite cosy for space, but is as quite as a coupe with the roof up. Leg and head room are limited for those who are particularly tall. Seats are saloon car comfortable rather than sportscar supportive.Mercedes-Benz maintenance is expensive, but it's essential if you want to keep its value. This will be repaid by strong residuals, even though it has just been replaced by a new and rather better model. Fuel economy isn't bad, especially on the smaller engined, supercharged models. SLK is a polluting model. With an average of 247 g/km CO2 across the range, its emissions are quite high for a sports roadster. It's worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. The range is quite thirsty, averaging 27 mpg. It's a Mercedes-Benz โ€“ build quality is peerless and reliability almost unrivalled. Especially impressive when you see that wonderfully complex folding roof mechanism working. Check our website for more stock. Friendly and approachable sales team, check out our reviews.
