2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Video

I had training last week for the soon to be released 2012 SLK-Class and CLS-Class. It was the first opportunity I have had to see the cars in person and I was very impressed. The SLK-Class in particular is leaps and bounds ahead of the previous generation. This was a one take, no practice, quick walk-around to cover some of the highlights…it isn’t quite up to my normal walk-around standards! You can get more details about the options and packages from my previous SLK-Class posts.

Mercedes-Benz Accessory Navigation System for 2012 C-Class and SLK-Class

For Model Year 2012 the Accessory Navigation System (ANS) will replace the Nav + 4 system in the SLK-Class and C-Class Sedan and Coupe. The ANS will equip cars without the COMAND system with Navigation through the standard screen (Audio 20). The standard screen for these vehicles is larger for 2012 with enhanced clarity and better display. The system is also fully integrated with the central COMAND controller.The features of ANS include:

  • Reality View Pro
  • Display of highway intersections and exit ramps
  • Image display of road signs and lane information
  • Lane Guidance Pro
  • Recommends the optimal lane
  • Destination input via map
  • Real Time Traffic

Unlike the Nav + 4, ANS does not include iPod adapter, USB connection, or Bluetooth Audio streaming. The Nav +4 will still be available on the 2012 GLK-Class. The ANS MSRP is $1290.

    SLK 55 AMG

    The SLK-Class is due for a re-design for model year 2012. As a result, there will be no 2011 SLK55 AMG. The last 2010 SLK55s will be built in May. After that the 2011 SLK300 and SLK350 will be built until the all-new 2012 is introduced.
    If you love the current generation of the SLK and have been delaying…you need to order your vehicle ASAP!
