Facelifted Mercedes SLK roadster gets more affordable as self-shifter models return

3 Jun 2008

DELIVERIES of the facelifted Mercedes-Benz SLK roadster begin this month, with effectively no price increase over the outgoing model.

However, the re-introduction of a six-speed manual gearbox has reduced the entry price point by $3120 over the previous auto-only model.

Prices now start at $86,780 for the 15kW more-powerful supercharged 1.8-litre four-cylinder SLK200 Kompressor model (plus $3120 for a five-speed automatic).

With the SLK280 being dropped, the SLK350 is now the only mid-range model and is priced from $112,380 (plus $3520 for a seven-speed auto) with its 3.5-litre V6 up 24kW while the range-topping SLK55 AMG’s 5.4-litre V8 engine is unchanged and comes only with the seven-speed auto, from $164,900.

Coming four years into the life of the second-generation model, the facelifted SLK features new-look front and rear ends, interior refinements and new alloy wheels as well as the revised engines, which are more economical and cleaner as well as more powerful.

Mercedes-Benz SLK range pricing:
SLK200 Kompressor (a) $86,780
SLK350 (a) $112,380
SLK55 AMG (a) $164,900
