After a 35 year hiatus, 2017 marks the return of the Mercedes-Benz SLC. A lot has changed since we last saw the SLC, including the integration of AMG® as a Daimler AG company. That means the 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG® SLC 43 in Scottsdale AZ is the first SLC to wear an AMG® badge. This sort of sentiment is fun for Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts and also increases future-value for SLC owners.

The SLC, like 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK it is replacing, is a roadster that gives drivers a thrill behind the wheel and at the pump. It is sporty, stylish, affordable, and efficient. How does Mercedes-Benz provide drivers with the best of both worlds? Part of the reason is the V6 biturbo engine. It displaces 3.0 liters of volume and produces 362 horsepower. Match this efficiently powerful engine with a light-weight frame and a 9-speed transmission and you have yourself an economic speed demon.
Thanks to the standard 9-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, the new SLC can get up to 60 miles per hour in just 4.6 seconds.
There is only one engine that comes with the SLC, but if you want you can upgrade your standard sport suspension to an AMG® RIDE CONTROL sport suspension with adjustable damping.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC roadster is electronically limited to a top speed of 155 miles per hour, but it doesn't take very long to get there.
One of the newest toys from Mercedes-Benz is the DYNAMIC SELECT driving mode selector. With the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC, you get the choice between three driving modes. Other Mercedes-Benz vehicles offer more driving mode options, but the SLC is not meant to drive off road or in inclement weather, so that is why you only get three. Comfort is the first option, featuring slow shifts and loose suspension. Sport is the next step up and Sport+ is above that for the most in performance.
