2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 Peformance, Exterior, Interior And Engine Review

2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 introduced the SLK back in 1996 as well as dropped it right into showrooms in 1997. Ever since, more than 600,000 systems have been offered, but the roadster's regime has actually come to an end a minimum of as the SLK anyhow. Ready to be released in spring of 2016, the Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class replaces the SLK, however only in name as well as not in spirit-- the SLC will continue the SLK's reign, sharing at the very least several of the C-Class DNA.

As Daimler AG Board of Administration member Ola Kallenius placed it, "In 1996, Mercedes-Benz redefined the roadster with its ingenious vario-roof, and combined open-air driving satisfaction with uncompromised convenience in bad weather. The renamed portable roadster stays an ideal mix of passion and also good sense, appealing to both the heart and the mind."

What you'll discover as you search the main photos of the brand-new SLC is that it lugs a great deal of the same style lines up of the SLK it changes. Yet, the SLC also has its very own design qualities, such as revamped bumper covers and also body trim, as well as brand-new technology. On the United States market the SLC will debut in two trims, at the very least initially, with the SLC300 being the beginning model as well as the SLC43 being crowned as the high-performance variant. So, what will we see when the brand-new SLC-Class hits display room floorings? Maintain reading to discover.

The rear deck appears virtually the same, however that arch that integrates the LED high-mount brake light seems a little less pronounced. The LED bar, nevertheless, is a bit much longer, with the points a lot more rounded. As it was with the side, the taillights lug the exact same design as the SLK, however the testimonials lights have actually been moved to all-time low of the taillight assemblies as well as seem LED. As opposed to having one big red area on the light, the SLC has actually two, inclined rectangular shapes that will certainly work as tail and also brake lights. It really is a much cleaner layout.

Up front, the brand-new SLC has actually a fresh created front end, with significant distinctions to the front splitter, bumper air vents, fronts lights, and grille style. The daytime running lights are of the LED kind and have been incorporated into the front lights settings up, offering the headlights an eyelid of kinds. In contrast to the outward bound SLK, the front fascia has a sportier layout that gives the SLC an aggressive appearance, nearly like it is snarling at you. On the base design, the front grille is ended up in black with chrome trim as well as an iridium silver louver. When including the "Sporting activity" package, the ruby grille will be finished in chrome, as seen in the images. With the "Evening" plan, the facility louver comes in high-gloss black. The hood itself is quite much like the outbound SLK, yet the design of the front grille makes it appear like the hood actually folds over the front of the cars and truck, like the hood and also grille are one piece.

Down listed below, the side skirts have actually been fine-tuned a little bit. On the SLK, the side skirts protruded from the body at the front as well as back wheel wells, but on the SLC, the side skirt slowly extends much more as it moves toward the back of the cars and truck. Behind the rear wheel well, the bumper is almost completely smooth except the wrap around, sunk in body line. The taillights maintain the very same shape however use a different style that keeps the reverse lights to the rear, with just the reflectors and side pens twisting around into the corner panel.

Sideways, there are just subtle differences when you compare the SLC to the SLK. To the front, you'll see that the SLC does not have that tiny body opening on the fascia, as well as fascia is smooth instead of having that wrap-around body line. Returning, that fender duct appears unmodified, however you'll discover that the facility louver really terminates inside the air vent, providing it a much cleaner look. The little body line underneath the vent runs a little farther back on the door as well as still concerns a sharp factor. The body line above the fender duct beginnings near the top of the wheel arc, yet involves a sharp point concerning half method throughout the door. On the SLK, this body line traveled right to the door manage.

Mercedes-Benz SLC Interior

The inside of the SLC is also refreshed in contrast to the SLK, yet the distinctions right here are subtle also. The same four-spoke vents lie on each side of the infomercial display, as well as at the edges of the dashboard. The door trim panels, center console, and seats all carry a comparable style, but are different in their very own method, additional distinguishing the SLC name. Even the tool collection has two main gauges with a secondary gauge on the lower, appropriate side of each primary scale. A small display screen rests between both main assesses.

New aluminum trim inserts garnish the interior and have a carbon fiber surface. On the instrument collection, the scale surrounds function black dials, as well as the scale needles are red. An analog clock in the facility of the dashboard is readily available as a choice, as it got on the outgoing SLK. On the SLC, the pigmentation has been changed to match the scale cases of the tool cluster. The infomercial screen, while in the exact same location, yet is now gauges 7 inches instead of the 5.8-inch screen on the SLK. The guiding wheel itself has been upgraded with perforation in the grasp location, and also on the SLC 43, a brand-new wheel can be optioned, covered in Nappa natural leather and also DINAMICA microfiber. The Nappa natural leather seats have actually likewise been updated, currently featuring opening at the shoulder areas as well as contrast sewing. Added leather colors now consist of saddle brown as well as platinum white.

If opting for the ambient lighting plan, the illumination has currently been encompassed the foot wells and is offered in solar red, polar blue or polar white-- the latter which are brand-new for the SLC. All of these updates to the cabin provide the SLC a cleaner view the in. I constantly thought the SLK's indoor appeared a little economical for a Merc, but from the looks of things, the SLC will certainly prevail in that area.

The SLC will continue on with an electrohydraulic roofing system. On the SLC, however, the roofing system can continue operating at speeds of approximately 25 mph if the automobile should be relocated when the opening or closing process has taken place. The trunk separator is now automated, and will automatically relocate down when the roof is opened-- if something is blocking the separator from removaling, the roof will closed, and a message will certainly present on the motorist details center. Optional attributes consist of heated seats, as well as "AIRSC RSC ARF," which is a neck-level heater for both guests. The rear, side windows could currently be run individually, also if the roof covering is open.

Dynamic Select drive comes standard on the SLC300 and also allows the chauffeur to customize exactly how the lorry performs with the straightforward press of a switch. There are 5 settings altogether: Comfort, Sporting activity, Sporting activity+, Eco, and Person. The SLC300 could likewise be optioned with a dynamic handling bundle that consists of adaptive damping as well as dynamic corner assist. When damping force is picked comfortably, sporting activity, or Sporting activity+ setting, damping force at each wheel adjusts immediately relying on road conditions-- supplying an outstanding right despite problem. Choosing the sporting activity exhaust system provides the SLC300 as well as flexible sound experience, permitting the drive to tune exhaust sound as he chooses through an adjustable exhaust flap.

For 2017, the SLC300 will be powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. It puts out 241 horse power and 273 pound-feet of torque. That power is sent out to the back wheels via a 9G-Trion Trion ic automatic transmission. Top speed on the SLC300 is available in at 130 miles per hour, with it taking 5.7 seconds to hit 60 miles per hour from a stop. For those trying to find even more power, moving up to the SLC43 obtain a 3.0-liter V-6 that pushes 362 horse power and also 384 pound-feet of torque. The SLC43 strikes 60 miles per hour in simply 4.6 secs.

 Mercedes-Benz SLC Prices

Mercedes has yet to release rates for the upcoming SLC versions, yet the SLK250 was valued at $43,950 while the SLK55 AMG lugged a billing to the song of $70,900. I believe these rates will certainly stay in the same area for the SLC300 and also SLC43,
