Default Mercedes-Benz SLC (SLK facelift) revealed

Mercedes-Benz has officially brought the SLC nameplate back to its model range with the introduction of the all-new SLC series that replaces the SLK. Introduced in 1996, the SLK (that has around 6.7 lakh sales to its name) will be relaunched as the SLC in March 2016.

The SLC (i.e. SLK facelift) will be offered in multiple variants, including the Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 that replaces the SLK 55 AMG. Given below is a look at the technical details of the SLC range at a glance:

- SLC 180: 1.6L, in-line 4-cylinder engine that makes 154 BHP @ 5,300 rpm and 250 Nm of torque @ 1,200 - 4,000 rpm. 0-100 km/h comes up in a claimed 7.9 seconds with the top speed rated at 226 km/h (223 km/h with the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission).

- SLC 200: 2.0L, in-line 4-cylinder engine that makes 180 BHP @ 5,500 rpm and 300 Nm of torque @ 1,200 - 4,000 rpm. 0-100 km/h comes up in a claimed 7 seconds with the top speed rated at 240 km/h (237 km/h with the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission).

- SLC 300: 2.0L, in-line 4-cylinder engine that makes 241 BHP @ 5,500 rpm and 370 Nm of torque @ 1,300 - 4,000 rpm. 0-100 km/h comes up in a claimed 5.8 seconds with the top speed rated at 250 km/h.

- SLC 250 d: 2.1L, in-line 4-cylinder diesel engine that makes 201 BHP @ 3,800 rpm and 500 Nm of torque @ 1,600 - 1,800 rpm. 0-100 km/h comes up in a claimed 6.6 seconds with the top speed rated at 245 km/h.

The range topping AMG SLC 43 is powered by a 3.0L, V6 biturbo engine that makes 362 BHP @ 5,500 - 6,000 rpm and 520 Nm of torque @ 2,000 - 4,200 rpm. 0-100 km/h comes up in a claimed 4.7 seconds with the top speed rated at 250 km/h.

The SLC 250 d, SLC 300 and SLC 43 feature the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission as standard, while it is available as an option for the SLC 180 and SLC 200, which get a 6-speed manual transmission as standard.

Safety and driver assistance features include Active Brake Assist, Blind Spot Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus, Traffic Sign Assist and more. Other features include a 7-inch infotainment screen, a DVD player, internet radio, Bluetooth connectivity with the read function for text messages and audio streaming, LINGUATRONIC voice-operated control system for audio, phone, navigation, music search and Mercedes-Benz Apps, 2 USB ports in centre armrest, one SD card slot in the COMAND head-unit and Garmin MAP PILOT navigation.

Default re: Mercedes-Benz SLC (SLK facelift) revealed

The current SLK 55 AMG still has a NA 5.5l V8, the last Mercedes to ever have it.

Get one while you can, this new car looks like an underwhelming effort.
