I am the same size as the OP, 6'1" and vary between about 175 to 178 pounds on the bathroom scale.
I fit in the cockpit of my 140 that has 150 seats just fine. I also fit into my R170 surprisingly well. The only thing I don't like about my fit in the SLK is that I can't lay the seat back as far as I like. I had a 300E and I laid the seat WAY back.
That said, the biggest surprise I've had from my SLK was a few weeks ago when I had to make a 250 mile one way trip. I bought the car for my 21 mile trip to work every day over hilly, winding, lightly traveled road. The surprise I had was how comfortable and non fatiguing the little car turned out to be on the trip.
Hope this helps,
