2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK Revealed

As the first compact convertible to come with a retractable hardtop, the Mercedes-Benz SLK has to be at the forefront of the segment when it comes to topless technology, and the new car is no exception.

Even though it's been completely restyled and given a new engine lineup, the big news for the new SLK its its Magic Sky Control system, which is essentially a tinted glass folding hardtop that can adjust the tint from transparent to completely dark. Buyers who don't want this sorcery can opt for a metal roof, but really, why would you?

Powered by Mercedes' familiar 3.5L V6 and a new 1.8L turbocharged 4-cylinder, a 5.5L V8 is also expected for a forthcoming SLK AMG. The 302 horsepower V6 is good for a 0-60 time of 5.4 seconds while the 4-banger's 201 horsepower should given it ample acceleration.

This is from my experience with these cars. MB started to drop in quality around year 2000. I say that because it has to do with the model you buy. The quality was horrible with the introduction of the 1998 ML class which was produced in Alabama. Then latter the C class, but that wasn't the most reliable Benz to start with. The E class on the other side quality wise has remained the same in my opinion. I have owned two E class in the past a 97, 98 and currently have a 2002 E320. They only had improved over the years.
