Along With The Facelift The SLC Replaces Old SLK Name
|   Saturday, January 02, 2016
Mercedes-Benz unveiled the new SLC Roadster which will debut at the Detroit Auto Show. Although it is a seemingly new model, this roadster is actually the SLK renamed after the facelift to comply with the new nomenclature of the brand.

After 20 years and 670,000 units sold since its official debut, Mercedes SLK changes his name to SLC with the current generation facelift. The letter C is meant to underline the technological kinship with the C-Class roadster.
Therefore, the German manufacturer continues to revise its model names, after they changed almost all its SUV's names.

The facelift brings to the German roadster a more sporty look, with clear influences from its older brother SL. The sharp hood meets a new grid, simplified and more generous, at the end of which there are two optical blocks equipped with LED technology, Intelligent Light System and scratch resistant glass. Also we have a ventilation outlet on the front side wings, reminiscent of classic Mercedes 300 SL.

Available wheels are sized between 16 and 18 inches, and the rear is defined by LED taillights and a deflector integrated into the spoiler.
The interior receives a series of new materials and finishes that imitate carbon fiber. Board instrumentation has a new design and in the middle of it there is a color computer with a 4.5 inch screen. The screen of the multimedia system applied to the dashboard was also enlarged. Now, it has 7 inches and is framed in a glossy black frame, like all Mercedes models.

Seats come with contrasting thread and the upholstery can be ordered now in two new colors Saddle Brown and White Platinum. Ambient lighting has been extended to the legs level, and is available with two other colors. The list of facilities was also improved. The Command Online multimedia system comes in addition to the 20-inch screen and navigation system from Garmin, Live Traffic Information, DVD player, voice commands Linguatronic, Mercedes-Benz apps and access to the Internet when the car is stationary.

To raise or lower the roof on any type of weather Mercedes has introduced the Airscarf function too, first met at the E-Class Cabrio ready to send a jet of hot air at the neck's level, both for the driver and passenger. And since we mentioned the mobile roof, we must say that the new SLC moves the roof up or down at speeds of 40 km / h.

Important novelties at the engine level range are present too, where we have two new motorizations: one that opens the range and one that closes it. The entry level is found under the sign SLC180 and features a 1.6-liter petrol engine that offers 156 hp. Next in sequence is the SLC200, with 184 hp, SLC300 with 245 hp, SLC250d diesel with 204 hp and top of the range SLC43.

The latter is a novelty and comes with a 3.0-liter engine capable of developing 367 horsepower. With such resources it is no wonder that accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h is done in 4.7 seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 250 km / h.
