Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Safety is high on the SLK Roadster. Standard kit includes Attention Assist. This monitors 70 parameters to ensure driver alertness. Active Bonnet improves pedestrian safety and can be reset by the driver. Pre-Safe is anticipatory occupant protection system that prepares the cars safety systems if it thinks a crash is imminent. Optional safety systems include Brake Assist Plus and Pre-Safe Brake included with optional Distronic Plus and Intelligent Light System and Speed Limit Assist.

Euro NCAP has not rated the car yet but we expect that the SLK achieve at least a four-star rating just like its predecessor.

Loadspace has been increased. The second generation had a load space of 208 litres with the roof down while this version gets 225 litres. Close the hood and the boot expands to 335 litres - that’s 35 litres more space than that offered by the previous generation. Whether you have the roof down or up, there is enough space for a couple of weekend bags for you and your passenger.
