Living in the city with a tight garage, we couldn't go full SUV, so this model as well as many other compact SUVs fit the mold. We ultimately went with the Mercedes because we liked the body styling, and the interior was luxurious but simplified in a good way. You're not spending a lot of time scanning the dash for unnecessary buttons while driving. We've done some off road, but mainly highway miles which are extremely comfortable. This SUV definitely does drink the gas, which is fine for a city commute, but if we had to extend that commute it would be an expensive proposition. That and any repairs which are notoriously expensive are something to be cognizant of...
Looks really cool... otherwise...
2013 Mercedes-Benz SLK250Dave Reinmuth - Dallas, TX07/13/2016
Sluggish reaction of acceleration, difficult to get in/out, no storage, no rear camera, requires frequent maintenance, no traffic on GPS without Sirius membership, pops into manual when steering paddle is accidentally touched, some dash readouts are difficult to see / interpret
This car has it all at a great price. Style, quality, features, ride and performance. This all wheel drive with 302 hp is definitely no slouch. I guarantee you will unknowingly exceed the speed limit. Perfect executive or professionals automobile with excellent fuel mileage.
