Mercedes today released a bunch of new pictures of the all-new 2012 SLK Class along with the car’s official European pricing. The market launch for the new SLK is March 26 and it starts at 38,675 euros for the SLK200.

2012 Mercedes SLK Pricelist:

SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY: 38,675 euros,
SLK 250 BlueEFFICIENCY: 44,256.10 euros,
SLK 350 BlueEFFICIENCY: 52,300.50 euros

Mercedes also boast the great features of the new SLK all over again. Stuff like the BlueEfficiency four and six cylinder engines, AIRSCARF, Innovative draught-stop system AIRGUIDE, sports suspension with harder springs and dampers, optional Dynamic Handling package, ATTENTION ASSIST, PRE-SAFE, DISTRONIC PLUS, Intelligent Light System, Speed Limit Assist, and the best feature of them all, the MAGIC SKY CONTROL panoramic folding roof.

All that is very great and makes the new SLK an uncanny car as far as engineering goes. What we cannot understand about the new SLK is the way it looks. They obviously wanted to go for a more manly design over the previous generations and they pulled it off, sort of, with an SLS-inspired look. But, I don’t know it just seems ugly to us! Specially that back-end is a real mess.

As for the engines, the four-cylinder engines in the SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY and SLK 250 BlueEFFICIENCY develop 135 kW (184 hp) and 150 kW (204 hp) respectively from a displacement of 1796 cubic centimetres. The SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY has the lowest CO2 emissions in its segment. With the enhanced, optional seven-speed automatic transmission 7G-TRONIC PLUS it consumes just 6.1 litres of premium petrol (NEDC, combined) over 100 kilometres, corresponding to 142 g of CO2 per kilometre. This sporty model sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.0 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 237 km/h (240 km/h with manual transmission).

The SLK 250 BlueEFFICIENCY is initially equipped with the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission (a six-speed manual transmission will become available at a later date) and consumes only 6.2 litres (NEDC, combined) per 100 kilometres (144 g of CO2 per kilometre). From standstill it reaches 100 km/h in 6.6 seconds, and it has a top speed of 243 km/h.

The V6 engine in the SLK 350 BlueEFFICIENCY generates 225 kW (306 hp) from its 3498 cubic-centimetre displacement, using this power to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds (top speed 250 km/h). Its consumption is 7.1 litres (NEDC, combined) per 100 kilometres (167 g of CO2 per kilometre).
