2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC Chicago IL
Formerly known as the Mercedes-Benz SLK, the all-new Mercedes-Benz SLC takes the torch as the brand's roadster beginning with model year 2017. Despite a change in badging, the best attributes of the SLK carry over into the SLC, with intelligent improvements in key areas to enhance the performance, comfort and safety of one of the world's most recognized roadsters.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC300 base model gets its power from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 241 horsepower rand 273 pound-feet of torque — the same engine found in the all-new 2017 E300. The retirement of the SLK nameplate also marks the end of the roadster's manual transmission offering, as it is universally replaced with a new 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission.
Standard on all 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC models, DYNAMIC SELECT gives drivers an opportunity to modify the way the roadster feels and performs. With five driving modes — Comfort, Sport, Sport+ Eco, and Individual — the experience behind the wheel has never been more personal.
Active Brake Assist
Standard on the 2017 SLC is a new active safety feature called Active Brake Assist, or what used to be known as Collision Prevention Assist Plus. This innovative system uses radar to provide proximity warnings, and if necessary, automatically applies the brakes to reduce the possibility of rear-end collisions.
Whether it's a beautiful summer day or a downpour, the SLC will keep you comfortable thanks to its Vario-Roof. The electrohydraulic roof is easy to operate and can be opened or closed at speeds of up to 25 mph. For 2017, a new automatic trunk separator also increases cargo space when the roof is down.
Next-Generation Mercedes-Benz Roadster Gets New SLC Badging
An updated version of the COMAND infotainment system features convenient standard capabilities with incredible available features. Displayed on a 7-inch high-resolution screen, the COMAND infotainment system is your multimedia hub, where you can control select smartphone functions through Bluetooth or USB connectivity, and also utilize navigation, Internet radio, and Mercedes-Benz apps. Reliable voice-operated controls make for hands- and eyes-free use.
The AMG version of the SLC receives more dramatic changes, as the AMG SLK55 gets replaced with an AMG SLC43. Rather than the naturally aspirated V-8 of the previous model, the SLC43 will house a 3.0-liter biturbo V-6. Although it gives up horsepower, it gains torque, making it even more responsive.
