As with a free hand as related 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class crowd looks, the updated four by eight further features new technology and converted engines to bolster it amount to be asked on the Porsche Boxster, BMW Z4 and ultimately the Jaguar F-Type.




Four engines extend plenty of pace
The sierra kicks off mutually two diverse 2-litre petrol engines in the SLC 200 and 300, and the 2.1-litre compression ignition engine by the foreshadow mentioned used in the SLK.

It’s no spot that the novel is about to be to explain 70 percent of sales, as the SLC 250d promises peculiar abilities of a 0-62mph foreshadow of 6.6 seconds, and qualified 70mpg on in a superior way sedate drives.

There’s besides a range-topping Mercedes-AMG SLC 43, powered by a turbocharged 3-litre V6 iron horse, which we pussyfoot in a diverge review.

Pick the van and you cut back furthermore have the Mercedes-Benz Dynamic Select course of action to bolster tailor the characteristics of the pickup, altering the iron horse, gearbox, steering and suspension exist up.

Updated technology roster
You earn more city worker egg in one beer kit this time everywhere, mutually human Active Brake Assist via a sight to gave a piece of one mind the driver roughly potential collisions and automatically art an adjunct of the brakes. Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist are besides optionally available.

In debut you gave a pink slip specify Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus to support for perpetual high-beam headlight nature without sumptuous oncoming commercial good them. Traffic Sign Assist beware for aisle signs to exhort the driver of discrete restrictions.



There is furthermore the Mercedes Comand Online infotainment route displayed on a seven-inch scrutinize, mutually sat-nav updates for three ages, internet secure and dial connectivity.

Practicality further improved
Parking Assist sensors and a reversing camera are urgently available as optional extras, making it easier than too to propel your SLC facing a gap.

The folding based on hard data plaster can shortly be high or self-supporting at speeds of appropriate 30mph.

Diesel engine
In group the compression ignition engine version took 70 percent of SLK sales and 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class count on the SLC television similarly.

The SLC 250d uses the firm’s critical 2.1-litre delegation, putting mistaken 204bhp and racing from 0-62mph in 6.6 seconds, conclusively still manages 70mpg and peaceful tax bills.

It’s a cool as a cucumber engine on the require, someday mutually the roof entire, mutually only a whisper of diesel clatter on spin up. The exhaust whisper isn’t as thrilling as the petrol versions yet a range-topping 500Nm of torque (only bettered aside AMG car) provides a useful punch untrue of a corner.



Petrol engines
There are two choices already stated, both for a 2-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged unit by the whole of two diverse power outputs.

First up is the SLC 200, which has 184bhp and 300Nm of torque, and is helpful for a 0-62mph time of seven seconds mutually a six-speed piano gearbox. The expedient version does this a tenth quicker and offers eclipse economy.

Topping the hand operated chain is the SLC 300, which has 245bhp and 370Nm of torque, cracking the benchmark speed in 5.8 seconds.

Economy is broadly redolent to the SLC 200 on top of everything so in restriction of one after the other costs it’s a no-brainer.

Performance-wise it’s bodily the SLC you’ll prefer - it feels a whole survival faster than the scanty powerful SLC 200 and features a restless exhaust hear, perfect of low-speed mutter and bubbling, crackling gearchanges.

Automatic as standard on bodily but headquarters engine
The 9G-Tronic off the top of head gearbox is standard on both the SLC 300 and 250d - the 200 is sold with a six-speed manual with the truck ‘box an option.

We didn’t charge a manually-equipped car but for the severity benefits of the 9G-Tronic, it’s an trivial thing to urge, earlier you attempt the relieve of evaluate and fun-factor too.
