This year, and neatly coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the original SLK class, Mercedes has launched a new version of their SLK range, and with it a facelift and an update to the long running name.

The Mercedes-Benz SLC class might not bring much in terms of new looks, the biggest change being the new on-the-go retractable roof, but it’s updated to performance, on road handling and overall comfort has made it a competitive addition to the bustling roadster market.

We have not had a chance to try one on the road yet, and therefore will reserve a full review until we do, however below is a quick summary of what the new Mercedes SLC has to offer.
