Introducing the Mercedes-Benz SLC
The Mercedes-Benz SLC is the successor to the SLK Roadster, which is widely known for being one of the first hard-top convertibles.
Just like its predecessor, the SLC is an extravagant, premium and compact roadster offering convertible motoring in a finely refined package.
Eye-catching looks, powerful petrol engines and the typical luxurious interior that features in Mercedes-Benz models; results in a highly desirable, sleek and smart 2-seater roadster for enjoying the thrill of open-top driving.
Design and Practicality
Perfectly balanced proportions, complemented by an elongated bonnet, short overhangs and intricate details ensure the Mercedes-Benz SLC Roadster is a striking compact sports car.
Joined by a diamond grille to highlight the 3-pointed Mercedes-Benz star, low-slung compact body and tailing off with distinct taillights and twin chrome exhausts; the SLC Roadster is in no doubt of its attractive presence.
Sitting on 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels, the SLC Roadster has a dynamic stance. The car also has a premium metal-folding roof, meaning the SLC Roadster looks great with the roof down, and equally as handsome with the roof up too.
Technology and Safety
A textbook 2-seat layout greets the driver and passenger with some properly sports focused seats featuring enhanced comfort, complemented by a sports-focused steering wheel.
Ambient lighting showcases the fine interior style, which mixes sporty elements with the class we have come to expect from a Mercedes-Benz. Polished metal on the centre console, along with stylish air-conditioning vents add exquisite style to the cabin design. A crisp instrument cluster is the focal point, which is joined by a sharp digital infotainment screen.
With the roof up, the driver and passenger are cocooned perfectly amongst quality and detail. Lower the the roof and the cabin is engulfed with a fine open-aired driving experience with enhancements to ensure the drive is as pleasant as can be.
Engines and Performance
There are three petrol engines to choose from, with the 385bhp 3.0-litre V6 being reserved for the Mercedes-AMG SLC 43.
With the Mercedes-Benz SLC there is the choice between the SLC 200 and the SLC 300, which both feature a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine.
The SLC 200 offers 181bhp and can propel itself from zero to 62mph in 7.0 seconds, with the 6-speed manual, or 6.9 seconds with the 9-speed automatic transmission.
Upgrade to the SLC 300 for a more powerful 242bhp and the 9-speed automatic transmission as standard. In just 5.8 seconds, the SLC 300 can reach 62mph from a standstill.
Despite the impressive performance delivered by the the SLC 200 and SLC 300 you can expect the models to return up to 40.4 and 37.2mpg respectively.
