2017 Mercedes SLC officially revealed

The 2017 Mercedes SLC has made its online debut and is now heading to NAIAS in Detroit next month before going on sale in the spring. This is basically a facelifted version of the SLK and has received the SLC moniker to better show it has just about the same size as the C-Class. It adopts a slightly modified exterior with sportier bumpers, LED headlights & taillights, integrated dual exhaust system, and an upgraded electrically-retractable hardtop that can be operated at speeds of up to 40 km/h (25 mph). The interior has remained mostly the same, but we do see a new steering wheel, aluminum trim, modified instrument cluster, along with a 7-inch COMAND infotainment system.
