2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC vs 2017 Audi TT

There’s no better feeling than putting the top down while cruising along the open road in a new 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC. The new SLC features everything you’d expect from a Mercedes-Benz Roadster, including a powerful and efficient engine, a sleek and sport design and some of the best handling capabilities in the world. Add to that a top that’s easier-than-ever to get down, even when driving up to 25 miles per hour, and you’ve got a convertible that can’t be beat.
