As vehicles decrease in size, they require less power to provide the same performance experience as a larger car with more horsepower. This is the idea behind the Mercedes-Benz and BMW roadsters. They give drivers more than half of the fun for less than half of the price of a supercar. As direct competitors, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC and the BMW Z4 dominate the luxury roadster market.
There are few places where you can find a car that can make you smile at the track and the gas pump all in the same day. Thanks to the lightweight nature of these two roadsters, driver's get the rare privilege of having great performance and excellent gas mileage all in one package. These two cars are extremely similar in size and even closer together in terms of performance, but which is better?

Two years ago, the SLC only existed in the form of the SLK-Class. Last year, the new SLC model came out with a bang that turned much of the attention to Mercedes-Benz. The Z4 has remained virtually unchanged for the last 8 years, making the SLC a hot item in the automotive world, but he name isn't the only thing that makes the SLC one of the best roadsters on the market. It's actually a number of things that make the SLC such an easy decision.
First, the design has been updated both inside and out to modernize the iconic roadster and show the world it is ready for the future. Second, the DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes make the SLC 4 cars in one. This is also available in the BMW, but Mercedes-Benz has proven itself to be one of the best at this kind of thing in the last ten years. The SLC also now features a 9-speed automatic transmission, further enhancing gas mileage, acceleration, and traction.
