2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 Review

from the expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class?

The Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class is a two-seat retractable-hardtop convertible that is smaller and less expensive than the automaker’s SL-Class roadster. It comes as the SLC 300 and performance-oriented AMG SLC 43. The SLC 300 uses a 241-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and the AMG SLC 43 has a 385-hp, twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6. Both have rear-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The SLC competes with the Audi TT and Porsche Boxster.

What’s New on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class?

Blind spot warning is now standard, and Final Editions of both the SLC 300 and AMG SLC 43 are available. The SLC 300 Final Edition includes Selenite Grey paint, gloss-black trim, 18-inch gloss-black wheels, AMG sport seats finished in Nappa leather, gray seat belts, an AMG steering wheel and special badges. Meanwhile, the AMG SLC 43 Final Edition gets Sun Yellow paint, gloss-black trim, 18-inch matte-black wheels with yellow accents, AMG sport seats in Nappa leather, gray seat belts, an AMG steering wheel and special badges.

What Features in the 2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class Are Most Important?

The SLC’s roof can be opened or closed at speeds up to 25 mph, though the process must start from a standstill. Mercedes’ available Airscarf neck-level heating system is designed to make top-down driving in cooler weather more comfortable. Standard safety features include automatic emergency braking and a driver drowsiness monitor.

Should I Buy the 2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class?

The SLC serves as a cheaper alternative to the SL roadster, Mercedes’ long-standing luxury convertible that has a storied history and a larger following. Though the SLC provides somewhat sportier performance, it lacks the SL’s refinement and panache.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
