We use the car mainly for holidays, the boot holds a very large suitcase with room to tuck in loose items and still have the roof down.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Stunning performance especially in Sport setting. Grips well but probably not as well as Boxster i have driven. With roof down car performs equally as well, and wind no problem with perspex diffuser.

What's it like to park?
I have to say i park my Navara better than the SLK, the long nose takes some getting used to. Nearside mirror adjusts when in reverse which helps.

Living with it

Had a major service 3 months ago and they found a split steering rack boot.

What's most practical about your car?
We use the car mainly for holidays, the boot holds a very large suitcase with room to tuck in loose items and still have the roof down.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Electric seats! We traveling long distances through Europe in the summer and being able to make small adjustments helps with comfort. Convenience setting with steering wheel.
