ï»¿About the 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class
In 2016, Mercedes-Benz has revamped the SLK250 to become the SLK300. The SLK55 AMG has been renamed to the simpler SLK55, and now sports an AMG Carbon Styling package. The manual transmission option has been phased out, and all models now include a standard automatic transmission with rear-wheel drive. Fuel economy ranges from 28 mpg combined in the SLK300 to 22 mpg combined in the SLK55, which is above average considering the engine’s power.
Three trim levels are available for the 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, each of which has a different engine: the SLK300, with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine; the SLK350, with a 3.5-liter V6; and the SLK55, with an impressive 5.5-liter V8. All models come with a powered, retractable hardtop roof and the Mercedes-Benz COMAND electronics interface. The SLK55 differs slightly, in that it includes a special AMG transmission and a sport suspension.
From the SLK300 to the SLK55, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is a thrill to drive. With amazing acceleration and great handling, the roadster feels just like a muscle car. Though it may be pricey, the car delivers the standard Mercedes-Benz feel in a roaring package.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturerâ€™s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
