In the following review, we will introduce to you the new 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC. This vehicle will be the SLK’s replacement, and the only name will be changed, everything else will remain the same, so we can expect that this model will be a well-selling vehicle, just like its predecessor. So, the spirit will remain the same as in SLK and the upcoming model will continue the SLK’s reign, sharing maybe some of the C-Class DNA. Like its predecessor, the new 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC will continue to prioritize easy handling and comfort and it will hit the dealerships with a soft facelift and a reconfigured lineup with two variants and those are Mercedes-Benz SLC300 as well as Mercedes-AMG SLC43. The powertrain will be slightly improved and we can expect very powerful engines.
2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC – A lot of Luxury:
Mercedes Benz Company decided to update the SLC’s front fascia with some slight redesigns. We can expect a diamond-block grille finished in black as standard or in the chrome with the Sports Package. Some of the redesigns are very nice headlights that are going to be reshaped this time will be powered by the LED technology. The taillights will be also powered by the same system, and this will certainly improve handling in terms of better road vision. Another restyled part will be the front bumper that will contain large air intakes will also be redesigned. When you compare this front fascia with the front fascia of the SLK, you can notice that this one has a sportier design, so the aggressive appearance is the main advantage of this model. The hood is quite alike to the outgoing SLK, but with the new design of the front grille, looks like the hood folds over the front of the vehicle, actually like the hood and grille are one piece. The rear fascia will bring a lot more style on the SLC and here we expect air vent in at each corner with a body line. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC will ride on the 18-icnh alloy wheels that look so beautiful.
The interior design of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC will be also slightly refreshed compared to the SLK, but the differences here are fine as well. Four-spoke vents are the same as before, and it will be located on each side of the LCD screen as well as at the corners of the dashboard. Center console, the door trim panels as well as seats will carry a similar design as in SLK. The cabin will also contain aluminum materials with a carbon fiber finish. The infotainment screen will be in the same place, but this time, that display will be 7.2 inches , which means 2.2 inches large than before. All seats will be covered with Nappa leather so we can expect very comfortable drive.
