For 2017, the SLK-Class became the SLC-Class. With this name modification also came a brand-new engine, some styling tweaks, and a handful of brand-new standard features. We expect the 2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class to stay the same.
2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class Design
Being a carryover model, we expect no visual modifications to the 2018 SLC-Class, as we anticipate it to continue with the exact same upgraded styling we saw from the 2017 model. This carryover styling will continue to the interior, which feels and look the part of a true luxury car.
In addition to no styling changes, we anticipate the 2018 SLC-Class’ standard features to stay the same. If our expectations are right, try to find it to come basic with 17-inch wheels, a fixed-glass roof, xenon headlights, LED daytime running light and taillights, power-folding side-view mirrors, leatherette upholstery, a rearview electronic camera, a 7-inch display screen, and an eight-speaker audio system.
2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class Engine
Our company believe the SLC-Class will continue with its two versions: SLC300 and AMG SLC 43. We expect the SLC300 to continue with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will produce 241 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque.
The range-topping AMG SLC 43 will continue with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that’ll produce 362 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. Both versions will continue with nine-speed automated transmissions, but AMG will tune the SLC 43’s transmission for much better efficiency.
2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class Safety
The IIHS and NHTSA have actually not checked the 2017 SLC-Class for security, however it does come fully equipped with plenty of safety features. These include traction control, forward crash warning with automated emergency situation braking, driver-drowsiness monitor, and more.
2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class Release Date and Price
Absolutely nothing is main yet, however we expect Mercedes-Benz to start 2018 SLC-Class production in June 2017, which will put it on dealer lots in July or August. There is not much in terms of direct competition for the 2018 SLC-Class, but buyers can take a look at the Chevrolet Corvette, Porsche 718 Boxster, and Audi TT.
With no changes coming, we expect no significant changes in pricing from the present model, which ranges from $48,875 to $61,225 (destination fees consisted of).
