A new video with the third generation Mercedes SLK has appeared online as the 2011 version has been spied during road testing in the USA.
Even thought the 2011 Mercedes SLK is still wrapped in camouflage around the ‘esential’ areas, you can easily notice the reshaped front grille that get more in line with the company’s new design language, the new headlights as well as the daylight running lights incorporated in the front bumper.
The 2011 Mercedes SLK is expected to come with improved handling and an interior that has been further refined, and the car is expected to get positioned closer to its main rival coming out of Bavaria, which is the BMW Z4.
Powering options for the 2011 Mercedes SLK are likely to include the company’s new 180 HP four-cylinder petrol unit, among other petrol and diesel units that will be oriented towards efficiency. It is also safe to assume that a 2011 Mercedes SLK AMG version will debut after the stock version will be launched, which will probably extract its juice from the automaker’s 5.5-litre BiTurbo powerplant.
