Up from that is the SLK 350, powered by a 3.5L V6 making 302 hp and 273 lb-ft and mated to a seven-speed auto, and the top choice is the SLK 55 AMG with its 5.5L V8 generating 415 hp and 398 lb-ft and also paired with the seven-speed automatic.
Standard kit in SLK 250 models includes artico upholstery, halogen projector headlights, LED daytime running lights and taillights, power-folding mirrors, Bluetooth and MP3 integration, auto-dimming driver’s side and rearview mirror, ambient lighting, attention assist, sport suspension, alarm system, garage door opener, 17-inch wheels, manual climate control, electric parking brake, and black fixed rollover bars.
