2013 Mercedes-Benz SLK250 Overview

Since its 1998 U.S. debut, the Mercedes-Benz SLK had featured styling that was almost cute. That all changed with a 2012 redesign, however, that gave the compact roadster an aggressive design that mirrored its larger SL sibling. Aside from rolling the Premium 1 package into the standard features list, Mercedes-Benz brings the SLK into 2013 without any changes.

The SLK250 serves as the lineup's base model, and has a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine under its hood that pumps out 201 horsepower and 229 pound-feet of torque. This engine mates to a six-speed manual transmission as standard, but a seven-speed automatic transmission is available. The SLK250 hits 60 mph in just 6.5 seconds, while still netting an impressive 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.

Like SL-Class convertibles, the SLK features a standard retractable hardtop that takes fewer than 20 seconds to operate. Inside the beautiful cabin, a driver and passenger enjoy eight-way power seats and an eight-speaker audio system.

Though the SLK250 is a gorgeous car, and fast enough to please most drivers, its $42,000 price places it in the direct path of strong challengers from Porsche, BMW and Audi. And that's when trading the engineering cost of the hardtop for a soft top and a lower price might have made it an irresistible bargain.
