For the first time in the SLK's history,

Mercedes-Benz is offering a diesel-powered version of its small hardtop

roadster that will be available for order in Europe from September 13,

2011.

The new SLK

250 CDI makes use of the Stuttgart-based automaker's 2.1-liter

turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine delivering 204-horses (150kW)

and a hefty 500Nm (368.8 lb-ft) of peak torque.

Power

is transferred to the rear wheels through a standard 7G-TRONIC PLUS

automatic transmission, but Mercedes said a six-speed manual gearbox

will also be available in the second quarter of next year.

With

the 7sp auto, the SLK 250 CDI can go from zero to 100km/h (62mph) in

6.7 seconds, accelerate from 80 to 120km/h in 4.3 seconds, and reach a

top speed of 243 km/h (151mph).

And

while performance is on par with the gasoline-powered SLK 250

BlueEfficiency that features a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-pot with

204HP (0-100km/h in 6.6 sec, 243 km/h top speed), the diesel SLK really

shines when it comes to fuel economy.

According

to Mercedes, the SLK 250 CDI returns a combined fuel consumption of

4.9lt/100km (48mpg US or 57.7mpg UK) versus the SLK 250 BlueEfficiency's

6.2 lt/100 km (38 US mpg or 45.6mpg UK).

Like all third-generation SLK models,

the SLK 250 CDI also features a start/stop system as standard, and is

available with a choice of three versions of the vario-roo, including

the panoramic glass roof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL that allows it to be

changed from dark to transparent at the touch of a button.

In

Germany, the new Mercedes SLK 250 CDI is priced from
