The design and technology for the 2017 Mercedes Benz SLC may seem familiar because it is developed from a long-known model of the SLK. Not only Mercy will change the name, they also make some tweaks and upgrades for the new roadster – just a little, really. Some may be skeptical about the new roadster, thinking that it may be the repetition of the old product – which means that there is nothing new to expect. But you should know better about Mercy, as it would be impossible for them to let you down in such a cheesy way.
2017 Mercedes Benz SLC Development
As it was mentioned before, the SLK is no longer produced or made anymore because Mercy is focusing on the brand new SLC, which is almost similar to the SL. The renaming plan was announced around a year ago so Mercy is pretty sure about this plan.
As for the new 2017 Mercedes Benz SLC, you can expect some upgrades in terms of engine arrangement and also some exterior changes. However, if you are expecting Rennsport grille or Panamericana grille, be prepared to be disappointed because you won’t find such a thing with this new roadster. This one will share similarities with the previous designs. Rest assured, though, that the SLK has always been a stylish and attractive ride so there’s nothing much to worry about – and the styling doesn’t need much change, after all.
2017 Mercedes Benz SLC Exterior and Interior Design
Mercy decides that they are going to keep some of the signature styles from the SLK. For the new SLC, the grille will be more focused and prominent with the diamond mesh appearance and accents. Expect the new LED headlights with optional super wide taillights with new inner that is slimmer and better than the ones on the previous models. You can see that the exterior look of this new SLC is still sharp with the right curves and lines – they may be subtle but super attractive.
For the interior cabin, there is only a minor change happening to the trims and controls. For the new 2017 Mercedes Benz SLC, a new safety and assistance system will be included, covering the collision prevention technology as the standard. You can also find unique two class options with the Airscarf, the unique ventilation system blowing warm air around your neck, and the panoramic roof (glass) whose opacity can be changed with a single push. What about the retractable hardtop? It can still be operated even when you are moving at 25 mph and it can be done gracefully.
2017 Mercedes Benz SLC Engine
Instead of the V8 engine, this one will be coming with V6 twin turbocharged engine with four cylinder power, delivering 241 hp of power with the standard automatic nine speed transmission. This engine arrangement changes may incite negative reactions from purists but you need to move on, right? This 2017 Mercedes Benz SLC will be available around spring 2017 with no exact information for the price.
