The 2017 Mercedez-Benz SLC


The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC is Slated to Arrive near Chicago and Oak Park in Spring

The replacement for the SLK, the SLC, will be making its official debut this year as a 2017 model. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC revamps the current SLK variations, while still holding true to many of the features enthusiasts love. The “C” in “SLC” is intended to spell out a close relationship with the famed C-Class’s mechanical prowess. We at Mercedes-Benz of Chicago can’t wait to add this unique and stylish convertible to our new lineup!

Two High-Performing Models

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC will hit the luxury market in two configurations: the SLC 300 and the Mercedes-AMG® SLC 43. The SLC 300 will be fitted with the SLK300’s familiar 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine, rated at 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Able to bolt from 0 to 60 mph in about 5.7 seconds, the SLC 300’s turbo engine will be slightly quicker on the uptake than the SLK300’s, which is good news for Chicago and Oak Park drivers shopping for a roadster with a little extra oomph. Speaking of oomph, the Mercedes-AMG® SLC 43 will offer more than its fair share. This sporty convertible will feature a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine that doles out 362 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque.

Mercedes-AMG® Handling Exclusives

Accompanying its pulse-pounding performance capabilities will be a host of exciting handling features. You’ll find any excuse to jump behind the wheel of the SLC 300 or Mercedes-AMG® SLC 43, what with its fuel-efficient and finely-tuned 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission at the helm. Lightweight and agile, the Mercedes-AMG® SLC 43 will feature many of the Mercedes-AMG® exclusives Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts have come to expect, such as refined suspension, sporty front and rear clips, and notable badging. Optional features, such as a mechanical limited-slip differential and adaptive adjustable suspension, will be available for enhanced driver control.

Familiar Style With a Twist

The exterior of the SLC holds true to the roots of the SLK roadster it’s replacing, while adding some noticeable changes that make it pop in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. The retractable hardtop, which has become an SLK signature, will carry over to the new and improved SLC. Even better, drivers can unfold and retract the hardtop while the SLC is traveling up to 25 mph. The grille will also take on a more aggressive appearance with a diamond-mesh design that adds just the right amount of flare. The elongated and lowered front-end compliments the SLC’s performance capabilities aesthetically, as well as mechanically; its retooled front fascia allows for greater airflow to the engine.

Interior Highlights

Along with many of its exterior features, Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts can expect the SLK’s crisp interior to echo throughout the new SLC’s cabin. In a modern twist, the SLK’s 5.8-inch color in-dash display will be replaced with a new 7-inch high-resolution screen, which allows for central access to multiple in-vehicle functions. Meanwhile, standard radar-based COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS®, as well as an assortment of other safety features, will help you keep tabs on the road ahead. The SLC’s interior will also offer several comfort and tech upgrades, such as leather upholstery, a harman/kardon®Ò Logic 7®Ò* sound system, and ambient lighting.
