Following last year's introduction of the SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY and SLK 350 BlueEFFICIENCY (which saw SLK sales lift 18% in 2011 in a segment that was down 21%), Mercedes-Benz Australia has announced pricing for additional models in the SLK Roadster range with the addition of the SLK 250 BlueEFFICIENCY and the SLK 55 AMG.

The new models are now available to order from local dealerships.


The SLK250 BlueEFFICIENCY has a Manufacturers List Price* (MLP*) of $91,900* which represents a reduction of $9,325 over the previous equivalent model the “SLK 300 ‘AMG Sports package’ “end of series model run.

The SLK 250 BlueEFFICIENCY MLP* is also $640 lower than the previous series SLK 200 Manual.

The SLK250 BlueEFFICIENCY gains additional items over the SLK200 BlueEFFICIENCY with steering wheel shift paddles, memory package for seats and steering wheel, mirror package, COMAND online, Intelligent Light System and alternate 17 inch 5 spoke alloy wheels.

With 150 kW of power and 310 Nm of torque and a 6.6 second dash from 0 to 100 km/h, the SLK 250 BlueEFFICIENCY benefits from the higher Luxury Car Tax threshold combined 7.0 L/100 km rating the SLK 250 BlueEFFICIENCY and a responsible 163 g CO2/km.

The eagerly awaited SLK 55 AMG brings to Australia the new AMG M152 E55 naturally aspirated V8 that delivers 310 kW of power and 540 Nm of torque. The powerful V8 engine utilises cylinder shut off and AMG Cylinder Management which delivers an almost 30% fuel consumption reduction over its less powerful predecessor. With a combined fuel figure of 8.5 litres/100 km and a remarkable 197 g CO2/km makes the new SLK 55 AMG the lowest emission V8 Roadster in Australia regardless of price.

The SLK 55 AMG can be further customised with a limited range of SLK-Class options - the most popular is expected to be the AMG Handling Package that includes composite front brakes, AMG Performance suspension and AMG rear-axle differential lock for $8,825*. The SLK 55 AMG despite being very fully equipped and being a brand new model has a MLP* of $155,000* which is a reduction of $24,360 over its less powerful predecessor.

NOTE: * Manufacturer's List Price (MLP) excludes dealer delivery fees and the numerous statutory charges (commonly known as on-road costs). Additionally, please note that all prices, fees and charges are subject to change without notice, as are the specifications.
