The most distinguishing feature of the new SLK, now in its third generation, is the panoramic roof with Magic Sky Control, whereby the the transparency of the 'vario-roof' can be changed from light to dark.
The new front face of the SLK, with its more upright grill, references the SLS AMG as well as being in keeping with Benz's new design paradigm which is holding to that feature. But the new design still improves on the SLK's drag co-efficient, though - 0.30 compared to the previous model's 0.32.
The SLK350 model comes fitted with a new 3.5 liter V6 doling out 302 bhp (225 kW / 306 PS) and powering the SLK to a 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) sprint time of 5.4 seconds. Top speed is 155 mph (250 km/h).
