WOW FACTOR: The roof with Magic Sky Control
Car designers are incredible: they never stop coming up with exceptionally cool new concepts. Just one such concept is the optional panoramic vario-roof on the new Mercedes-Benz SLK; this tinted glass roof switches to light or dark at the press of a button. That’s one feature that makes this Car of the Year fi nalist worthy of a mention in this year’s WOW – others include the engine (it scampers to 100km/h in 5,6 seconds), fuel consumption (a mere 7,1l/100km), Airscarf (it keeps you warm during open-top motoring) and Airguide (it stops draughts).
