Moving this page to SLC-Class[edit]

Mercedes-Benz now refers to this class of cars as SLC and have been doing so for some time. With that in mind this page should be moved to SLC-Class and SLK should redirect to it. Atald 15:04 Aug 01, 2017 (UTC)

Is it K for Kompakt or K for Kurz ???

Google says Kurtz. --SFoskett 02:05, Jun 24, 2005 (UTC)

Yup its Kurz, it means 'short', check it out on the Mercedes GLK-class page. It talks about Mercedes's plan to takle the BMW X3, it also includes the Kurz explanation

1996 model?[edit]

The article is US centric when it referes to the year of launch as 1997 and the initial lack of a manual transmission option. The SLK R170 was available in Europe, and other markets, from 1996 with either manual or automatic transmissions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.152.129.204 (talk) 21:28, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Updated this to suit its original launch in Europe and the 1994 concept SLK. Warren Whyte (talk) 17:35, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

1998 model[edit]

Some design info should be provided.

Tone of this article[edit]

There is way to much unsubstantiated hyperbole in this article. It needs to be cleaned up.

Proposal[edit]

I am going to try and clean up this page. At the moment the information is haphazardly arranaged and I think we could make better use of the articles pertaining to the exact platorms (r170 and 171 articles). I also want to put more information pertaining to the general make-up of the car and move the more specific information of the cars performance and reviews to the platform articles.

I'm going to be moving some of the pictures across too so there ins't so much clutter about. Maybe one of each of the platforms and then we can have pictures of the AMG models etc on the platform pages. Any opinions?--Polmerfox (talk) 21:08, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Leave articles as is[edit]

I am thinking that we should leave the articles as they are now. japanesevehicles100 (talk) 08:34, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
