The 2017 Mercedez-Benz SLC


Meet the All New 2017 Mercedez-Benz SLC

Replacing the SLK for the newest model year, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC brings new innovations to the compact roadster class that has wowed drivers for the past twenty years. The SLC retains the luxurious and refined interior of its predecessor while updating the exterior and delivering two new turbo engines to choose from. Serving drivers in Newport Beach and Irvine, Fletcher Jones Motorcars of Newport Beach delivers the latest Mercedes-Benz models you want to drive. Let’s take a closer look at what we can expect later this year!

Two Turbo Engines

Under the hood of the SLC, Newport Beach drivers will find two different racing-inspired engines. The standard 2.0L turbo-4 delivers 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque for a daring ride, while the Mercedes-AMG® SLC 43 boasts a twin turbocharged 3.0L V6 that can generate 362 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. The latter can also blast from 0 to 60 mph just in 4.6 seconds, and has a governed top speed of 155 mph. Both engines are paired with an ultra smooth 9-speed automatic transmission for confident handling.

Sport Suspension

Whether you’re cruising down the coast or tooling around town, the agile handling of the SLC delivers a superb and controlled ride. The chassis of the Mercedes-AMG® SLC 43 sports a unique suspension tuning and increased negative camber for improved grip when cornering. For true track-ready performance, a mechanical limited-slip differential and adjustable damping are both optional equipment for the Mercedes-AMG® SLC 43. Either configuration is sure to not last long in our new vehicle inventory here at Fletcher Jones Motorcars Newport Beach.

Bold Exterior

The 2017 SLC improves upon the SLK of past to create a bolder exterior that’s fitting of the racing engine beneath the hood. The front of the 2-seat roadster features the prominent Mercedes-Benz diamond mesh grille, framed by the newly designed LED headlights. The taillights are newly redesigned as well with a slimmer, more aerodynamic appearance.

Advanced Safety Systems

The upgraded electronic architecture of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC supports new assistive systems, like COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST®. Standard on every SLC, this system uses radar technology to monitor closing speeds between your SLC and the vehicles around it. If a collision is likely, it can help apply an ideal level of braking to reduce the severity of the collision, or avoid it entirely.
