Dare to Compare the Mercedes-Benz SLC

Dare to Compare Mercedes-Benz SLC

Is the SLC a Worthy Competitor Against the BMW 2-Series?

There’s nothing quite like the wind in your hair, the sun on your face, and a winding stretch of open road ahead of you. If hitting the road in style is one of your favorite pastimes, you may be searching for a premium roadster that reinvigorates the driving experience. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC and the 2018 BMW 2-Series are two such roadsters, offering power and luxury features. But, which convertible is more adept at meeting San Jose and Palo Alto drivers’ needs and expectations? We dared to compare the new SLC and 2-Series in our below chart!

A Classic Convertible for the New Age

The SLC triumphs over the BMW 2-Series with greater low-speed engine power and fuel economy, thanks largely to its turbo engine and 9G-TRONIC® automatic. With its excellent city and highway mpg ratings, the 2018 SLC 300 also goes further on fewer fill-ups, letting you cruise through Santa Clara and Alameda without worry. The new SLC is a rare gem in the luxury roadster segment, and includes features like a panorama roof, ATTENTION ASSIST®nd optional AIRSCARF®ck-level heating—none of which are available on the BMW 2-Series.
