Review Summary
Expect feedback or driver involvement like you get from a Porsche Boxster and you’ll be disappointed – this is not a car for enthusiasts craving proper sports car responses.

Review Summary
The Mercedes-Benz SLC might look sporty, but it’s far from the sharpest tool in the box. If you’re looking for handling thrills, you’d be better off with a Porsche 718 Boxster, or if your budget can’t stretch that far, an Audi TT.

Review Summary
AMG’s new V6 shows promise; SLC shows progress but mostly its age.

Review Summary
The Mercedes SLC is a competent cruiser with a folding metal roof, but its rivals are more exciting to drive.

Review Summary
The Mercedes SLC driving experience is left trailing next to rivals like the Audi TT and Porsche 718 Boxster, but it's a good motorway cruiser.

Review Summary
Ultimately uninspiring to drive, but works well as an easy-going 24/7 roadster.

Review Summary
A refresh of the firm's SLK model, the two-seat, open-top Mercedes SLC is refined and well equipped, but not much fun to drive.
