What You Will Like

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC takes Mercedes' concept of a small 2-seat roadster to new heights, offering high-level performance and a great selection of technological features. All this works together to give the car an excellent overall balance of comfort and performance, and for the end-user, it is arguably a more rounded daily driver than the Chevrolet Corvette, Porsche Boxster or BMW Z4 roadster. Priced around $48,000, it has many of the same styling cues and a similar look to the much more expensive SLS AMG coupe.

What's New For 2017

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC isn't so much a new model as it is a realignment of an old one. For 2017, the SLC replaces the previous SLK in the lineup. The roadster features updated styling, including new grille, headlights, and taillights. Beneath the hood is a new engine -- a turbocharged 4-cylinder making 241 horsepower and mated to a 9-speed automatic. Two trims are offered: the SLC300 and AMG SLC43, the latter powered by 362-horsepower 3.0L twin turbocharged V6. It, too, is mated to the 9-speed auto. SLC pricing starts at just under $48,000.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC is the car formerly known as SLK. To go with its new name, the 2017 SLC presents a freshened face, touched up around the grille, headlamps, and air intakes.

By any name, this car has not been redesigned since the 2011 model year, and it is the size of a subcompact. It’s clunky when compared to the elegant Mercedes-Benz coupe line. The SLC is especially dated in the cabin, where there are a few new surfaces, some revised gauges and a new steering wheel, but not enough changes to turn an awkward K into a swoopy C.

There are just two models, the Mercedes-Benz SLC300 and the racy Mercedes-AMG SLC43. The SLC300 is more of a comfort machine than a sports machine. The Mercedes-AMG SLC43 is meant to address the performance aspect.

It’s hard to believe that the hardtop roadster sports car has been around for two decades (not counting the true pioneer, the 1957 Ford Skyliner), but that’s how long it’s been since Mercedes-Benz reintroduced it with the SLK. The 2017 SLC efficiently carries on the design.

The SLC300 uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, to accelerate the car to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds, a brisk performance. The engine has a fairly flat torque curve, so there’s little drama or high-rpm thrill.

The Mercedes-AMG SLC43 is a totally different car, with its twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that makes 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. On top of the hood-busting power, a Dynamic Handling package makes cornering balanced and responsive, including when the car is being pushed hard. Steering and suspension improvements, plus a limited-slip rear differential, further help the Mercedes-AMG SLC43 get around corners. It uses the same 9-speed automatic transmission as the SLC300, but it’s programmed to shift quicker. It’ll get to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, which is very quick. A standard Dynamic Select system provides five drive modes: Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Individual.


The 2017 SLC comes in just two models, SLC300 with its turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and Mercedes-AMG SLC43 with its twin-turbocharged V6 and suspension upgrades.

Standard features include Bluetooth and the Mercedes COMAND infotainment system. But not a rearview camera. Available safety equipment includes active braking assist, and lane keeping assist.


The SLC is elegant and nicely sculpted, more masculine than the previous SLK, with chiseled low sheetmetal. The new grille for 2017 is a diamond pattern, fairly vertical, standard in black, or chrome with the Sport Package. At the rear there are LED taillights. The familiar silhouette rises at the beltline.

The transition from the blunt nose to the tapering rear end isn’t as smooth as it might be, and it looks more distinctive with the top down than up.

Just as the AMG SLC43 is totally different behind the wheel, so does it look different, with a glossy black air deflector, big air intakes with chrome fins, a silver front splitter, shiny black 18-inch alloy wheels, chrome exhaust tips, and a silver chrome diffuser apron.


The squared-off cabin fails to match the curvaceous and meticulous levels of the Mercedes-Benz sedans and the crossovers, or even the smaller CLA and GLA. The new flat-bottomed steering wheel tries to convince you that the instrument panel is fresh, but the clean analog gauges are about it. Same buttons, switches, and seven-inch infotainment screen embedded in the dash.

The cabin is tight when the top is up, turning the SLC300 into a quiet coupe. It’s the high point of the car’s overall design. With the top down, there’s some turbulence, reduced by a mesh divider between the seats, and windstops that close the openings in the rollbars behind each seat. Now that’s detail. Meanwhile, the available Airscarf whispers warm air onto the occupants’ necks. It’s a charming feature.

The hardtop comes standard with a panoramic glass roof with available Magic Sky Control, which lightens and darkens the glass. More detail. Visibility can be difficult with the top up.

Given the long hood and short cabin, there is remarkably little cabin space. However, if you compare it to the Mazda MX-5 Miata, it feels generous. Taller folks will want more legroom, and more seat travel, as the seats are located close to the dash. Deeper footwells would be nice, too.

Cubbies for storing small things are surprisingly lacking. The center console compartment has maybe enough room for a camera without a long lens. Don’t look to the trunk, either, certainly not with the top down. You might get away for a weekend with two people, as there’s backpack-sized space under the floor. In total, there’s 10.1 cubic feet with the roof up, 6.4 with it down.

Driving Impressions

The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine in the SLC300 feels plenty quick in a straight line, and it’s quite responsive and not peaky; although when you compare it to the V6 that was in last year’s SLK, it loses a lot. In Comfort mode there’s too much lag in the turbo and the 9-speed transmission. Fortunately there are peppier modes; the Dynamic Select system offers Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Individual, to tune throttle response, transmission response, steering boost, and electronic stability reaction.

The steering is great, but it’s very clear that the SLC300 doesn’t want to hang its tail out; try it, and the inside rear wheel will spin. Meanwhile the he short wheelbase doesn’t exactly enhance the ride. Adaptive damping helps, but your butt stays pretty busy on bumpy roads.

The Mercedes-AMG SLC43 is a different story, when you want it to be, but around town, it’s as tractable and easy to drive as the SLC300. However out on the open road, it’s way faster, with its twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 bringing 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. And it handles way better, with a balanced, responsive feel even when near the limits of grip. That’s made even better with the available Dynamic Handling package that lowers the suspension, stiffens the variable-ratio steering, and upgrades the brakes, while adding special engine mounts, rear suspension tweaks, and a limited-slip rear differential.


Changing the name from SLK to SLC can’t change the fact that this is the seventh year of a generation. The 2.0-turbo engine is only one year old, and the 9-speed automatic transmission is new for 2017, but the transmission isn’t proven, and the engine is not matching that of the competition. Even the retractable hardtop, which is a great thing, is nearly 20 years old.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
