The SLC is not only beautiful to look at, it offers the thrills of a roadster but the comfort and practicality of a Mercedes-Benz.
The sky's the limit. Get the top down in less than 20 seconds, and with speeds of up to 25mph, so you never miss the first glimpse of sunshine. No sunshine? Still enjoy the clear view through the optional panoramic Vario-roof, for an open-air feeling even when the roof is closed. Options include the panoramic sunroof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL, which can be switched from tinted to transparent at the touch of a button.
The athletic stance of the SLC is complemented by dramatic body styling. Exterior highlights include a dramatic new front section, featuring larger air intakes, a restyled bumper and apron, and expressive new-look headlamps. Meanwhile the rear boasts redesigned wings, tail lights, bumper and tailpipes.
The SLC offers a choice of three powerful yet efficient engines that deliver all the performance you need, whether you’re on a motorway or a winding country road.
With the 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission, the petrol-driven SLC 200 can return up to 47.9 mpg combined and sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 6.9 seconds. The SLC 300, meanwhile, can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.8 seconds and return up to 47.1 mpg combined. For drivers who prefer diesel, the four-cylinder SLC 250 d completes the line-up. Generating 500Nm of torque, it can power from 0 to 62 mph in 6.6 seconds, return up to 70.6 mpg, and achieve CO2 emissions as low as 114 g/km*.
9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission* delivers supremely smooth and responsive gear shifts, while DYNAMIC SELECT puts a range of driving modes at your disposal.
From Comfort and Eco options to Sport, Sport+ and Individual, each mode adjusts parameters such as steering and transmission to create a distinct motoring experience. Meanwhile, the new sports Exhaust System lets you tailor acoustics for maximum excitement.
For peace of mind, the SLC also incorporates various driving assistance systems, including new ACTIVE BRAKE ASSIST. This warns the driver if the pre-set safety distance from a vehicle ahead narrows, and intervenes with autonomous braking if required.
For an even more dynamic look, the AMG Line comes complete with muscular AMG bodystyling putting the AMG SLC 43 in a league of its own, lowered Sports suspension, and an eye-catching diamond radiator grille with chrome accents. Along with bold styling, making the SLC 43 a true AMG is the set of 18" multi-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels finished in elegant, high gloss black.
Ultimate performance with low fuel consumption and emissions, makes the 3.0-litre V6 biturbo the perfect combination. Boosting 0-62 mph in only 4.7 seconds.
