Compared to the outgoing SLK, the new car gets a completely revised front section, although the overall appearance remains very similar. A more aggressive bumper is found under the front grille, the latter having what the manufacturer calls a diamond grid pattern and logo on silver wings. The headlamps are also new, while LED adaptive headlights are available.
Twenty years and some 670 000 units sold later, the SLK is now the SLC. This is not a complete overhaul, but still some cosmetic changes and mechanical improvements. So why the name he changed? The manufacturer has simply wanted to remind his family attachment with the range of C-Class, which explains the new letter in its name. Logic.
When the first Mercedes-Benz SLK was launched in 1996, it was not the German roadster the sharper the group. BMW Z3, and especially the Porsche Boxster, offered a more exhilarating driving experience and more powerful engines. The SLK was still distinguished as four seasons car with its retractable hardtop Power.
One could enjoy a first bite of the Mercedes-Benz SLC in 2017 on the French Riviera. In bright sunshine that warmed the busy bank of the south of France, we could not help to lower the roof and enjoy.
