Mercedes-Benz SLK 250 CDI diesel review

Mercedes-Benz SLK 250 CDI diesel review


Let’s face it. When we talk about high quality luxury cars the first picture in our mind is the Mercedes-Benz logo consisted of a simple depiction of a three-pointed star that represents its domination of the land, the sea, and the air.




One of the best known and most wanted cars produced by Mercedes is Mercedes Benz SLK. My favorite version is 250 CDI in palladium silver color and black cloth interior, like this one from Frontier Leasing – Mercedes SLK diesel.  It has a 2.1 liter, four cylinder diesel engine with 201 horse power and max. torque of 368 lb/ft which is delivered on 1.600 rounds per minute. CO2 emissions are only 132 g/km which is excellent for such a strong and explosive engine. This Mercedes model is not very thirsty and 56.5 miles per gallon looks incredible. From 0 to 62 miles per hour SLK needs only 6.7 seconds. For more enthusiastic drivers (read with dipper pockets) there is Mercedes Benz SLK model in AMG Sport version which have 18 inch alloy wheels and one cm lower suspension.

Competitors are not a surprise. They also come from Germany. The first one is BMW Z4, but unfortunately this car can not be bought with diesel engine. The other more suitable competitor is Audi TT TDI Quattro, which is slightly cheaper than Mercedes Benz SLK.
