Which SLC 300 is the Best?

The AMG SLC 43 is going to be the more entertaining version and probably more desirable when the time comes to sell. Find a Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class for sale

How Much Does a 2019 Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 Cost?

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class comes in SLC 300 and AMG SLC 43 versions.

The SLC 300 ($49,945) has 17-in alloy wheels, glass panel in the folding roof, mirror-logo headlamps, LED running lights/taillights, rain-sensing wipers, simulated leather upholstery, heated/power-folding side mirrors, 8-way power-adjustable seats with memory settings, drive mode selection, a sport exhaust system, a rearview camera, a 7-in display, and an 8-speaker audio system with Bluetooth, two USB ports, and an HD radio.

An optional Premium package for the SLC 300 brings keyless entry/ignition, remote control of the folding hardtop, Airscarf (a neck-warming feature that uses vents built into the seats), heated seats, blind spot monitoring and satellite radio. Active LED headlights with automatic high beams, an adjustable suspension and blind spot monitoring are also available.

The Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 ($64,895) has the contents of the Premium package as standard, along with the bigger engine and stronger brakes, plus aerodynamic additions, sport-tuned suspension, 18-in AMG-design alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, active LED headlamps with automatic high beams, some real leather in the upholstery, blind spot monitoring, and powered adjustment for the steering column.

The SLC 43 is eligible for AMG Ride Control, a more sophisticated sport suspension. And the AMG Handling package, which brings a mechanical limited-slip rear differential, along with an IWC-designed analog clock, and a sport steering wheel wrapped with a mix of leather and synthetic suede. These latter items don't help with handling, but help justify the extra money.

Both variants are eligible for an analog dashboard clock, navigation, ambient cabin lighting, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, parking assistance, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist and a few cosmetic additions.

One cool option for both models is Magic Sky Control, which turns the glass panel in the roof transparent or opaque by the touch of a button. It's well worth having since there isn't a sunshade for the regular glass panel.

Total trunk space is an adequate 10.1 cu ft., which contracts to 6.4 cu ft. when the roof is stowed away.

Safety

Is the 2019 Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 a Safe Car?

Like many luxury vehicles, the SLK has not been subjected to crash tests by any American agencies.

Competition

2019 Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 vs the competition

2019 Audi TT -- The regular version comes in coupe or roadster form, while the hot 292-hp TTS (there's also a hotter TT RS with 400 hp) only comes with a fixed roof. But the tech is impressive and so is the driving experience.

2019 BMW Z4 -- The name is familiar, but this is a whole new 2-seater roadster. With a soft top. Arriving spring 2019, it could be a little too enthusiast-oriented compared with an SLC.

2019 Chevrolet Camaro -- Seriously, the Camaro's range of engines and excellent suspension makes this a contender even if it doesn't have the cachet of something exotic and German. Again, like the rest of these alternatives, it's a choice between hard or soft top. That's what makes the SLC so compelling.

2019 Porsche 718 Boxster -- The Boxster uses a soft top, so it does not have the SLC's serene character when the roof is up. But serenity is hardly the point of a Porsche.

Used Mercedes-Benz SL-Class -- Along with the company's big luxury sedans, the SL-Class is the car that really means "Mercedes-Benz." It's gone beyond class and status symbolism to become an icon.
