Compare it!: Mercedes SLK - BMW Z4 - Audi TT | drive it!
Mercedes gets a facelift to compete with two other roadstersWith its iconic
logo on proud display, the SLK is focusing on luxury, with plenty of room
in its sumptuous interior. But will the new styling actually leave the
competition behind? Two other cars, the BMW Z4 and the Audi TT 2.0 TFSI are
close rivals. The BMW has a classic roadster look with its massive hood and
rear-wheel drive. The Audi TT has an irresistible sound. Which of these
three roadsters will take the prize?

► Mercedes Future Truck 2025 (Autonomous Driving Demo)
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 constitutes a revolution in
efficiency, safety and networking, a revolution for road traffic and its
infrastructure, for professional driving and for the road transport sector.
This is not a new truck, but rather the key element in the interconnected
transport system of the future. It is being developed as part of the
"Shaping Future Transportation" initiative by Daimler Trucks to conserve
resources and reduce emissions of all kinds. Other aims are to ensure the
highest possible level of traffic safety and to Boost networking with intelligent data
management considerably for tailor-made vehicle and service solutions.
The prototype demonstrated the exciting capabilities of the
Future Truck 2025 back in the summer at speeds of up to 80 km/h in
realistic traffic situations on a section of the A14 motorway in Magdeburg,
Germany. Now the thrilling exterior and interior of that same vehicle are
One of the most interesting questions on the subject of autonomous driving
is the time horizon envisaged for its realisation. In purely technical
terms, turning it into reality on the roads is already feasible within
around five years. In terms of passenger car development cycles, a possible
start is envisaged in 2020. Owing to the more complex factors for heavy
commercial vehicles, the time horizon for such vehicles will, however, be
rather longer – realistically implementation is possible within ten
years, also in view of the legal considerations that still remain to be
The introduction of autonomous driving will not happen digitally from one
day to the next, as development is progressing in a gradual manner:
evolutionary stages are necessary to revolutionise goods haulage on the
roads. In the coming years, new and improved assistance systems will
continue to pave the clearly set-out way to autonomous driving.

Mercedes-Benz SLK 250 CDI: Does A Diesel Sports Car Really Work? - XCAR
Mercedes-Benz has form when it comes to automotive innovation. Karl Benz
himself innovated the motorcar. The Benz Patent Motorwagen is widely
regarded as the first proper car but between its inception and now quite a
bit has changed.
Now cars have roofs, decent tyres, stereos, more than 1bhp and very
different fuels to power them. Petrol, the motion lotion of choice, offers
a lovely noise, plenty of power and some pretty decent economy; diesel was,
for a long time, seen a smelly, slow and for penny pinchers, however after
hefty advances in engineering it's become almost just as quick as petrol,
clean and hyper-economical. Ideal, then, for a saloon or SUV. But what
about for a sports car?
A sports car is supposed to exude elegance and cool while emitting a
smooth, slinky noise. Now, diesel still isn't associated with aural joy, is
it? So you'll have to excuse my confusion as to why Mercedes has put a
diesel motor in its SLK sports car...
The specs show that it's got a fair bit of shove, Mercedes' engineering
prowess means it's a really good steer and, while I'll fully concede beauty
is in the eye of the beholder, I think it's a bit of a looker.
The SLK's evolution is an interesting one. It started off as a blocky wee
thing, then evolved in to a far smoother affair. Now it's far more
purposeful, aggressive even.
SLK, in case you're wondering stands for 'Sportlich', 'Leight' and 'Kurtz'
-- sporty, light and short. It was supposed to be Merc's small sports car,
sitting beneath the SL. It's not all that 'kurtz' any more though.
Anyway, marrying a diesel engine and a sports car together... will it work?
It's something I really can't get my head around. I don't see how the
rumbly, penny pinching nature of a diesel can possibly compliment something
as entertaining as a sports car. So I set about finding out...

Engine: 2.1-litre four cyl turbodiesel
