Nothing beats the feeling of putting the top down while cruising along the open road. Well, one thing can. That’s the feeling of putting the top down while cruising along the open road in the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC. It has everything you’d expect in a Mercedes-Benz Roadster and more. Its sleek and sporty design pairs perfectly with its powerful engine and sublime handling capabilities. And it’s now easier than ever to get the SLC’s top down.

You’ll never get stuck in the rain again. But as great as that is, it’s nothing compared to the SLC’s all-inclusive suite of advanced safety and technology features. You won’t find a more complete convertible on the market. (more…)
