Redesigned 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC to Debut in 2016

Twenty years after defining a new segment, Mercedes-Benz introduces the newly redesigned 2017 SLC. This updated version of the SLC will include significantly optimized technology with an enhanced look.   The SLC was previously known as the SLK and this new name change acknowledges the close relationship with the C-Class, from which much of the roadster's technology borrowed. This new version of the SLC is comprehensively refined, with a model line-up from the sporty SLC300 to the high performance Mercedes-AMG SLC43. When the SLC launches, the available engine variant will be the SLC300, featuring a 2.0l direct injection, turbocharged four-cylinder with 241hp and 273lb-ft.  Conversely, the Mercedes-AMG SLC43 will feature a 2.0l V6 bi-turbo engine with 362 hp and 384lb-ft. Exterior changes for the updated SLC will include a new front-end design with new halogen headlights, integrated daytime running lights, a new front bumper, a diamond grille, narrower taillights, and a new rear bumper with integrated exhaust pipes. In addition, Interior modifications will include a new sport steering wheel, standard 7" display, new instrument cluster design, new upholstery colors, and two additional colors for the optional Ambient Lighting in polar blue and polar white. The redesigned SLC's standard equipment will feature DYNAMIC Select, a Sports Exhaust System, electric trunk partition, rearview camera, Active Braking Assist (Collision Prevention Assist Plus), pre-wiring for Garmin Navigation, and mbrace LTE. Optional equipment for the refreshed SLC will include a new Infotainment generation, dynamic LED headlamps, new 18" wheels, and a Sports Package with re-designed front and rear bumper, as well as 18" AMG wheels. The 2017 SLC will debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January and is expected to be able to be purchased at Mercedes-Benz of Tampa in the spring of 2016. The Mercedes-AMG SLC43 is anticipated to follow with the ability to purchase in the summer of 2016.
