It is not only on the outside that the SLK makes a distinctive statement about its sporty character. This development is also visible in the vehicle interior. An optimised dashboard, high-quality surfaces, generously-sized trim elements and a host of technical innovations distinguish this dynamic roadster.
The SLK is multi-faceted. On the one hand, the optional panoramic vario-roof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL creates an impression of space and airiness even in the closed vehicle.On the other, all the roof variants offer lots of room for luggage even when the car is open.
Vario-roof: At the touch of a button, the standard-fit fully electrically-retractable Mercedes-Benz vario-roof converts your roadster into a sporty coupé in less than 20 seconds.
Panoramic vario-roof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL (optional):in this world premiere in automotive engineering the roof glass unit changes its tone at the touch of a button from dark to transparent and vice versa within seconds. When the glass is darkened, the heating up of the vehicle interior is considerably reduced.
A comfortable travelling environment in the SLK comes courtesy of the standard-specification air conditioning. With its engine residual heat utilisation, dust/active charcoal filter and air recirculation with comfort function for automatic window closing, the air conditioning guarantees a pleasant atmosphere for the driver and passenger at all times.
THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control is available as an option and allows you to control the individual temperature and air supply settings for the driver and front passenger according to their own wishes. It also accounts for factors such as outside temperature, humidity and sunlight.
Mercedes-Benz extends the roadster driving season – significantly. Innovative technology for even more exciting motoring enjoyment in comfort in an open vehicle, thanks to the optional AIRSCARF and AIRGUIDE systems.
At the push of a button, the innovative neck-level heating AIRSCARF activates small fans on the back of the head restraints which draw in air.
This is then heated and blown out through a vent in the front of the seat. It warms the neck and throat area of the driver and front passenger like an invisible scarf.
In addition, the novel, transparent and pivoting AIRGUIDE draught-stop provides more comfort for open-top motoring by offering effective protection against draughts for the driver and passenger. The transparent pivoting elements of the AIRGUIDE draught-stop are attached to the rear of the roll-over bars. They deflect the airflow and considerably reduce the draughts reaching the head and neck areas of the driver and passenger.
The conventional fabric draught-stop (optional) is based on a fine mesh structure which slows down the air flowing through it in order to protect passengers from draughts. It allows for open-top motoring even at high speeds or cooler temperatures.
Driving a Roadster means being close to the road, but in the SLK you do not have to do without comfort. The sporty seat contours with magnesium frames provide optimal lateral support, even when taking bends at speed.

You can store these and other settings, such as steering wheel and exterior mirrors positions. Three different pre-sets can then be called up at the push of a button.

The novel, pivoting AIRGUIDE draught-stop provides more comfort for open-top motoring by offering effective protection against draughts for the driver and passenger.
The transparent pivoting elements of the AIRGUIDE are attached to the rear of the roll-over bars. They are manually pivoted using a handle in the space between the seats and can be separately adjusted for the driver and front passenger. There they deflect the airflow and considerably reduce the draughts reaching the head and neck areas of the occupants.
The conventional fabric draught-stop (optional) is based on a fine mesh structure which slows down the air flowing through it in order to protect passengers from draughts. It allows for open-top motoring even at higher speeds or cooler temperatures. It sits in a fixed frame and fits in between the roll-over bars. If the draught-stop is not needed, it is stored in a space-saving, protected holder in the boot.
