Introduction

What Car? says...

So, you're looking for a two-seat convertible to enjoy the UK's erm, frequent sunny weather? Logic would lead you naturally to the door of the Mazda MX-5 and you'd be jolly happy. But if you also want a premium badge, then your choice is more limited – welcome, then, to the Mercedes-Benz SLC.

The SLC is a refresh of the SLK roadster and faces off against rivals including the Audi TT Roadster and upcoming BMW Z4. It also needs to justify itself, though, against much cheaper alternatives such as the aforementioned MX-5 and Fiat 124 Spider – cars that show you don’t need to spend a lot of money to enjoy open-top driving thrills.
