Vehicle description

Overview

When many people think of luxury roadsters, they imagine carefree evenings spent zipping down the coast in a sexy sports car with the wind in their hair. With its classically handsome exterior, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC-class certainly looks glamorous enough to fulfill this mission. It also delivers quite nicely when it comes to driving dynamics, providing handling that can help make your travels more pleasant and entertaining. Mercedes has equipped this small convertible with an up-to-date selection of driver-assistance features, so there’s ample technology on board to alert you to possible mishaps. This car’s main shortcoming is its somewhat cramped cabin. Still, there’s plenty to love with this deluxe roadster, which is in its last year of production.

What’s New for 2020?

To commemorate its last year of production, the Mercedes-Benz SLC-class adds a special Final Edition trim package. It’s painted Selenite Gray and comes with unique interior and exterior design cues.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

  • SLC300: $50,945

The SLC300 provides a raft of appealing standard features. This small convertible rides on 17-inch, 10-spoke wheels, and it’s equipped with exterior amenities such as a power-retractable hardtop, rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated power-folding side mirrors, rear fog lamps, and automatic projector-beam halogen headlights. Standard eight-way power-adjustable front seats with memory setting are on hand to help you find a comfortable position behind the tilt-and-telescoping steering column. Manual air conditioning and simulated leather upholstery are standard, along with Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation. All models come with driver-assistance features such as blind-spot monitoring and automated emergency braking.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The 2020 SLC300 is motivated by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. All models are rear-wheel drive, and a nine-speed automatic gearbox governs the proceedings. For those who want more power and performance, Mercedes offers an AMG variant of this roadster that comes with a bigger engine and sportier suspension settings. Mercedes estimates that the SLC300 can make the zero-to-60-mph dash in 5.8 seconds. This little convertible is an eager and spry companion on twisty roads, with poised road manners and steering that’s precise and well weighted. When faced with harsh pavement, this SLC300’s suspension graciously soaks up bumps and jolts, shielding passengers from roughness.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The EPA estimates the SLC300’s fuel economy at 23/32 mpg city/highway. This Mercedes convertible gets better mileage than rivals such as the Jaguar F-type convertible (up to 23/30 mpg) and Audi TT roadster (23/31 mpg).

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

This generation of the SLC-class has been on the market since 2011, so its cabin has the dated look of a car whose interior hasn’t gotten a major overhaul in almost a decade. Still, there are some attractive touches, such as the round air vents that decorate the dash. Tight cabin space is part of the package with most roadsters, but the SLC300’s interior is snug even by this segment’s standards. If you’re a taller driver, it’s a good idea to sit in the cabin and experience it firsthand before signing on the dotted line. One of this roadster’s most appealing options is Mercedes-Benz’s Airscarf system. Top-down driving can leave passengers chilly in colder weather; Airscarf enhances their comfort by blowing warm air through vents located just underneath the headrests. Three settings are offered, and the direct-to-body heat can help facilitate better temperature regulation than you’d get with traditional vents. There’s not a whole lot of cargo space onboard the SLC-class. This convertible provides just 6.5 cubic feet for your belongings. Other models are roomier. For example, the Jaguar F-type convertible offers 7.3 cubic feet of cargo space.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The SLC300’s list of standard tech features includes an eight-speaker audio system with an MP3 player and auxiliary input jack. Bluetooth wireless phone connectivity facilitates hands-free phone calls, and Bluetooth music streaming is also standard. All models come with a 7.0-inch touchscreen. The options list includes a Harman/Kardon sound system, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC-class hasn’t received an overall crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Roadsters are sometimes sparsely equipped when it comes to driver-assistance features. This isn’t the case with the SLC-class. This roadster is available with valuable active safety tech. Key safety features include:

  • Standard blind-spot monitoring
  • Standard automated emergency braking
  • Available lane-keeping assistance
  • Available adaptive cruise control

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Mercedes-Benz provides warranty coverage that’s competitive within the luxury segment. However, some brands in this class, such as Jaguar, offer longer protection.

  • Limited warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles
  • No complimentary scheduled maintenance
