2012 Mercedes SLK to have vario roof

Posted by Stefan on October 11th, 2010 in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

Some information has been released about the 2012 Mercedes SLK and according to it, the new Mercedes SLK will have vario roof feature. The vario roof is essentially a glass roof with controlled transparency. The glass can be made transparent or can be darkened with the touch of a button.

Using this feature you may make more light to enter into the Mercedes SLK, for example, on a cloudy day. If the weather is too hot and sunny, you may instead prefer to keep the glass darkened.

Now the bad point is that that vario-roof will be sold as an extra option, which will cost you additional money. There is no information available from the mercedes about the exact pricing of the Mercedes SLK.

More details about the 2012 Mercedes SLK is not yet released. It is expected that Daimler will release more information in the coming days. We expect that most of the other specification for th3 Mercedes SLK does not change much from the previous year models.

    Mercedes claims that this will put less strain on the air conditioner. What a nonsense statement. First they create a problem by putting a glass. Now they claim to solve the problem by introducing the vario roof.

    Could not they think of something better to innovate ?
