Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

There’s a very long list of standard Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG safety equipment and a range of optional extras available too.

Every single car gets the following: six airbags, an active bonnet (for pedestrian safety), stability control, traction control, a first aid kit, roll-over protection, a tyre pressure monitoring system, Attention Assist (which alerts the driver if it detects fatigued driving), an electric parking brake, automatic headlights, a brake-pad wear indication system and active head restraints.

Optional safety equipment includes the Driving Assistance Package, which includes radar-guided cruise control, Pre-safe brake (which primes seatbelts for impact in the event a crash is detected) and BAS Plus, which primes the brakes in order to prevent or mitigate the effects of an accident.

Additionally you can order a fire extinguisher and automatic windscreen wipers.

Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG practicality isn’t exactly something to write home about. The boot measures a tiny 225 litres with the roof down, but this expands to 335 litres with the roof up should you need to transport bigger items.

There’s a selection of cubbies dotted around the cabin including a central storage area around where your elbow sits in the central console.
