What are customers saying about the SLK class in Dubai, UAE
Khalifa - I own a used import SLK 350, perfect car for the UAE. Drop the roof down during the winter time, put it back up in the summer time and enjoy that cold air con. Nothing else on the road looks remotely similar and with no turbochargers attached it’s still quick. Pros: Stands out in a crowd and power. Cons: Boot is small.
Radwan - Excellent car for the weather of Dubai. From December to March, the roof is never closed on my second hand SLK55 AMG. Can’t forget it’s got power and looks fantastic. Pros: Handling and style. Cons: High price with options.
Omar - Another owner of a pre-owned SLK 55 AMG, had to export one from the US as very few second-hand models in the UAE have the self-tinting panoramic sunroof. Drives like nothing else I've ever driven, I just wish my entire family could enjoy at the same time. Pros: Tinting sunroof, amazing handling and quick. Cons: Only a two seater.
