Often, a vehicle will need a lot of power to offset weight and size. You see this often with some SUV models, wherein they have a very powerful engine. In these cases, drivers rarely get to experience any thrills due to the power working against the heavy SUV build. Despite an abundance of power, this negatively affects enjoyment on the road. When power is directed toward battling an overburden of weight, that takes away from providing the driver with a responsive performance on each driving experience.
To truly enjoy a thrilling driving experience, power is best employed with a lighter build, allowing the engine output to focus strictly on performance rather than balance, providing tuned handling that results in responsive controls, acceleration, and braking. That is the case with the 2019 Mercedes-Benz SLC roadster.
The compact and lean, aerodynamic build of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz SLC roadster doesn’t need a lot of power to create a gripping, driving experience. However, it still gets plenty of excess power to enjoy. The baseline engine provided is a 2L inline 4 turbo engine that produces up to 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Controlled by the perfected 9G-Tronic transmission, a driver can accelerate the 2019 Mercedes-Benz SLC from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.8 seconds!
A roadster is all about providing a memorable driving experience, but that doesn’t mean it is lacking in safety features. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz SLC employs numerous advanced driver assistance and safety features including Active Brake Assist, PRE SAFE® sound dampening, ATTENTION ASSIST, and PARKTRONIC among other valuable and adaptive technology.
Power isn’t all that aids the performance of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz SLC. Incredible design greatly improves the efficiency of parts and therefore response time and effectiveness of acceleration, braking, and other shifts including changing driving modes and implementing technology features.
