Quick Look

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLK250 is no commuter vehicle, but as a convertible-coupe, it’s one of the best. It looks slick and it has a solid 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 201 horsepower and 229 pound-feet of torque. Its main downside is the lack of space in its cabin since its rear seats are non-existent and its front seats lack proper legroom, particularly for taller people.




Full Review

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLK250 is a stylish and powerful convertible-coupe that delivers plenty of solid features. It’s not exactly meant for driving around the track, but it’s still a fun vehicle for cruising around the city or down a highway. It’s definitely aimed for people who already have their go-to vehicle and just looking for something fun on the side since it’s not really all that practical. It’s still a fantastic car, but if you’re looking for a commuter vehicle, then this is not it.

With its power-operated retractable hardtop, the 2015 SLK250 can look either as a sleek coupe or top-level roadster. But regardless of which form you prefer, the two-seater has character lines similar to its bigger and more expensive sibling, the SL-Class. At roughly 414 centimetres of length, which makes it about a half-foot longer than the Mazda MX-5 Miata, the SLK250 is uncompromisingly compact and easy to maneuver in tight spaces. It does, however, feature a long hood and low, wide stance, which endow the convertible with some substance. And if you settle for the top-of-the-line SLK55 AMG variant, you will get slightly improved design, which highlights the vehicle’s performance-driven nature, offering tinted headlight housings, quad exhaust outlets and a small rear spoiler.

Inside, the Mercedes-Benz SLK250 demonstrates very clearly that it’s no sport car, like some of its competitors. However, it does provide everyday comfort and usability. The SLK's seats are a treat, and you can cover them either in leather-imitating MB-Tex or genuine leather. However, the front row does lack legroom, which will be especially pronounced if you are tall. In terms of electronics – everything is where you want it to be. The audio and climate controls are easy to find and use, with a neat tactile quality that highlight the fact that this is a premium car. The vehicle also offers a standard panorama roof that allows you to see the sky even with the top up. There’s an option to upgrade to the Magic Sky Control feature, which you can use to adjust the level of tinting.

Under the hood, the SLK250 features a 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 201 horsepower and 229 pound-feet of torque. It’s connected to a six-speed manual transmission, with the seven-speed automatic being optional. It comes with a turbo lag, but that shouldn’t deter the majority of drivers. That said, the SLK250’s competitor, the base BMW Z4, can produce 240 horsepower. So, if you are looking for more power, then you’re better off picking of the higher SLK trims. Like the other SLK convertibles, the 250 variant is rear-wheel drive and consumes 91-octane gasoline.

Overall, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLK250 is definitely worth a purchase. It’s not for everyone, but it’s still an extremely likeable vehicle.

Power and Performance:

Look for the entry-level SLK250 to return carrying a 1.8-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine and standard 6-speed manual transmission that manages 201 hp and 229 lb-ft of torque. A 7-speed shiftable automatic transmission is optional and of course delivers the same power numbers. Mileage remains estimated at 22 mpg city/32 highway in stick-shift variations and 23/33 in automatic-toting editions.

Interiors and Special Features:

The 2015 SLK roadster isn't as pure a sports car as some of its competitors, but that’s a benefit in terms of everyday comfort and convenience. Whether outfitted in the leather-like MB-Tex or the real thing, the SLK's seats are a pleasure to be in. Audio and climate controls are right where you want them and have a satisfying tactile quality that affirms you're piloting a premium car. Even with the top up it's easy to see the sky thanks to the standard panorama roof. As an upgrade, the innovative Magic Sky Control feature lets you adjust the level of tinting.

Safety features:

Standard safety equipment aboard all 2015 SLK-Class iterations, finally, includes 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, side-mounted and head curtain airbags, turn-signal-integrated mirrors and daytime running lights. Also standard are such safety items as a post-collision safety system, mbrace emergency telematics and a remote antitheft alarm. Meantime, Mercedes’ optional Parktronic parking system uses front and rear sensors to ease stashing this sleek drop-top into open slots, while adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assistance and pre-collision braking are also available lineup-wide.
