The new Mercedes Benz SLC has gone on sale priced from £30,495 for the entry level SLC 200 Sport.

Mercedes have dropped the twenty year old SLK from the range and replaced in name with the SLC, no real idea why.

There is now a choice of four engines, ranging from the petrol 2.0-litre available with either 184hp (SLC 200) which has the option of a six-speed manual or 9G-TRONIC auto transmission or the 245hp SLC 300 which is mated to the 9G-TRONIC box.

If you would prefer diesel then the SLC 250 d is powered by a 2.1-litre engine outputting 204 hp with CO2 emissions of 114 g/km.

Then there is the range topping SLC 43 which comes with a petrol 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine outputting 367 hp plus peak torque of 520 Nm on tap. This will propel it from 0 to 62 mph in 4.7 seconds then on to a top speed of 155 mph (electronically limited). It is fitted with the £9G-TRONIC auto transmission and records emissions of 178 g/km.

There are two trim levels for the SLC 200, SLC 300 and SLC 250d, which comprise Sport and AMG Line. Standard equipment on the Sport models includes : re-designed halogen headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights; new sports exhaust system (standard with 9G-TRONIC on SLC 200 and SLC 300); sports pedals; LED tail lights; Active Brake Assist; Attention Assist; Active Bonnet; chrome-plated twin exhaust system; remote boot lid release; and Headlamp Assist.

Where the AMG line adds 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels (18-inch five-twin spoke alloy wheels are optionally available for £995), while AMG Line offers 18-inch AMG multi-spoke alloys.

Interior trim on models is a light carbon-grain effect where the SLC 43 comes with dark carbon-grain trim.

Standard equipment on the SLC 43 comprises AMG Performance steering wheel in nappa leather and DINAMICA combined with red contrast stitching; AIRSCARF neck-level heating; PARKTRONIC including parking guidance; LED Intelligent Light System and Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus; analogue clock featuring an IWC design; Garmin� MAP PILOT with Live Traffic Information; AMG sports suspension; AMG sports exhaust system; AMG Handling Package; and AMG high-performance braking system with red�painted brake calipers.
