This year was a really busy one for Mercedes-Benz. Most of the brand’s crossovers and SUVs received major overhauls and the C-Class continued to generate more and more variants. In all this madness, it seems the new 2016 SLK300 got swept under the rug. No fanfare was made, no press event was hosted, and no headlines were inked honoring the new baby roadster. Heck, even I forgot about the change from SLK250 to SLK300 until I picked up the car and noticed the larger denomination on the trunk lid.
