2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC

$48,400 | U.S. News Score: 8.1/10

The 2018 Mercedes SLC comes in two distinct flavors: the SLC 300, with a 241-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and the AMG SLC 43, with an eager 362-horsepower twin-turbo V6. The AMG model can propel the roadster from zero to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds.

Both models of the SLC feature a hardtop convertible design, blending the cold weather shelter of a coupe and the open-air freedom of a drop top. When retracted, the roof consumes nearly half of the SLC's 10 cubic feet of trunk space.

In our ranking of luxury sports cars, the SLC earns a spot near the bottom of the list due to an aging design and a cabin that’s cramped even by sports coupe standards. On the plus side, the SLC gets better fuel economy than many rivals and features exquisite interior finishes.
