In and around Geneva, Mercedes-Benz drivers cherish top-down weather in Chicago since we do not get many warm weather months. However, as awesome as it feels to drive with the top down, at Mercedes-Benz of St. Charles, we know that during heat waves, especially those we are expected to deal with later this week, we would rather take cover with our air conditioning running on high.
The good news is that for those driving their favorite convertible, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK350, it is as fun to drive with the top up as it is with the top down. In and around Geneva, Mercedes-Benz drivers will love the great features on this model that can make it transform from an open roadster to a closed coupe in just a matter of seconds, so you can adapt to Chicago weather as quickly as it changes.
All it takes is one touch of a button on the console and the 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK350 is able to retract its hardtop and fold into the trunk. The rear window is designed to pivot and adjust as the top is lowered so cargo space is maximized when you drive with the top down.
Bummed that needing to take cover under the hardtop is going to impair your view of your drive down Lake Shore Drive? Don’t be. The Panorama roof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL allows you to alter the transparency of the roof, allowing you great lighting and views with the top on. For example, on particularly hot and sunny days, adjust the tint of the roof as to minimize it so the lighting will make it appear as if you are driving with the top down! An added plus is that the tint helps to block both UV and infrared rays, helping to keep the car cooler and you safe from exposure.
