The Mercedes SLK 230 Kompressor is exactly what it sounds like. It is a small compact car that is very comfortable. For a 1998 year car it still has the horsepower as most regular cars in the market. The car is designed for short people and I found out that people over 5'10 will be slightly uncomfortable riding in the car. It is meant to compressed. The hood of the engine is the biggest part of the car. It takes up the most space so there is a big engine in there.
Story
I live near a beach so every now and then I would drive down PCH which is the street nearest the beach. I would drive down there with my convertible top off and just cruise with the wind hitting my face.
Pros
There is a convertible top and a pretty decent size trunk. The car is fast so you don't have to worry about not having enough horsepower. Furthermore, there are washer for your headlights which is pretty neat.
Cons
If you don't like small cars this is going to be a problem. It isn't made for tall people and the car is pretty low to the ground.
