While much of the Mercedes-Benz lineup is being revamped or retooled to offer us more of the details and craftsmanship we want, there are some models in the lineup that aren’t benefiting from these redesigns. Although being left out, for the time being, the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 Roadster is still a stunning car and one that can easily offer you the quality, the drive and the look that is all unmistakably part of the Mercedes-Benz brand. This is a car that brings the drive you want and allows you to respect a vehicle that’s been setting the standard for several years.
Under the hood of the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 Roadster, you’ll find an active and energetic 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that’s able to produce 241 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. This little engine is attached to a smooth shifting nine-speed automatic transmission to deliver 25 city/32 hwy mpg and offer you a price that starts at less than $50,000. When you consider the lineup from this brand and what this means for your drive, the roadster could be looked at as a value model and not one that feels like you’re just paying for the name.
