With an attention-grabbing front grille, long arrow‑shaped hood and flowing side lines, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC unmistakably sporty design complements its nimble spirit. Featuring an electrohydraulic vario‑roof that combines the thrill of open‑top driving with uncompromised comfort, the SLC is as fun to drive as it is to look at. And since it's more fun catching some breeze with the top down, optional features such as AIRSCARF® and heated seats (standard on AMG® SLC 43) ensure that the SLC maintains the perfect on‑board climate regardless of the weather.
The new SLC is available in two models: the SLC 300, which features a 241‑hp 2.0‑liter turbo inline 4‑cylinder engine; and the high‑performance Mercedes AMG® SLC 43, which includes an AMG® enhanced 362‑hp 3.0‑liter V‑6 biturbo engine that delivers 384 lb‑ft of torque. Both feature 9‑speed automatic transmission as well as DYNAMIC SELECT, which allows you to adjust the vehicle's driving characteristics to match your personal driving style at the touch of a button.
The new SLC features your choice of two engines depending on your model preference, which are a 2.0-liter turbo inline 4-cylinder engine with 241 hp, 273 lb-ft of torque or an AMG® enhanced 3.0-liter V6 biturbo engine-362 hp, 384 lb-ft of torque.
With standard DYNAMIC SELECT, the system modifies the engine, transmission, steering and suspension to fit the owner's drive style. The five modes – "Comfort," "Sport," "Sport+," "Eco" and "Individual" are easy to use and can be tailored to your liking.
Driver Assistive Features
The new SLC features some of the most innovative driver assistance features on the automotive market today like radar-based proximity warning, braking assistance by Adaptive Brake Assist, Blind Spot Assist, and Lane Keeping Assist.
