The Mercedes-Benz SLC Class Roadster has a selection of petrol engines and diesel engines and it's worth picking through them all to find the most suitable for your vehicular requirements. Let's start with the only diesel on offer and it's certainly good value, with plenty of speed available and power to complement. It also gets an automatic transmission system as standard, which its petrol equivalent doesn't. Of the petrol engines on offer, the entry level option just doesn't deliver in terms of performance, so selecting one of the more powerful engines is probably wise. The top level petrol engine also gets an automatic gearbox.
In terms of suspension and ride quality, sadly we have to report that this SLC Roadster is disappointing. Some of its rivals are streets ahead in terms of comfort levels and if you opt for a model with the sports suspension, the ride quality gets worse instead of better! Handling isn't up to scratch either, bordering on sloppy, especially when cornering, so a car you think is going to be a lot of fun to drive ends up being a little underwhelming, especially when placed next to some of its direct competitors.
For a car with an open top, the Mercedes-Benz SLC Roadster has always been considered as refined. Upon inspection, we can see why. In general, noise from the wind and the road are kept at bay and when this is the case, the car shines. However, those models with bigger wheels tend to kick up a bit too much noise on surfaces that are not particularly smooth. Things are not so favourable for the diesel model and some of the lesser petrol models either, which all sound a bit on the rough side, especially when putting your foot down. Those models that have the manual transmission also suffer because it simply doesn't feel precise enough.
This is essentially a luxury roadster, so there are plenty of decent pieces of equipment to enjoy and this is where the SLC outdoes its competitors with the sheer quantity and quality available. As standard, you will get the following: Air con, Bluetooth, DAB radio and alloys. Electrically operated windows and roof is also standard. Dig a little deeper and there are also lots of nice little optional extras if you are interested.
