This section offers information on the latest cars introduced to the Indian car market.
The SLK-Class was the first Roadster to ever set wheels on Indian soil. It is currently imported as a completely built unit and looks like a pre-cursor to the design implemented in the SL-Class. It has a flat muscular front fascia with aggressive and bold lines defining its hood. The front bumper extends beyond the air dam on both sides to give it a sportier appearance. The bold design continues along the length of this two-door roadster with etched lines that highlight the door’s design on either side. A retractable hard top that allows it to change appearance from a coupe to a convertible classifies the SLK-Class as a roadster with attitude. It is available in two petrol variants. The SLK 200 Kompressor comes with a 1.8-litre engine that churns out 163 bhp and is coupled to rather unimpressive 5-speed automatic transmission. The SLK 350 is equipped with a 3.5-litre V6 engine that generates an efficient 272 bhp and is teamed to a 7-speed automatic transmission. The estimated starting price of the SLK-Class is Rs. 47.50 Lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
