Mercedes reveal new SLC 180 convertible

Mercedes has added a new entry-level model to its SLC roadster range.

The SLC 180 is powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, producing 154bhp and 184lb ft of torque.  It can sprint from 0-62mph in 7.9 secs, reaching a top speed of 140mph.

The new model is only available in AMG Line trim, which is also being adopted by the rest of the SLC range.  As standard, it comes with 18-inch alloys, Artico leather seats and active brake assist, with an optional nine-speed automatic gearbox.  The AMG Sport trim features firmer suspension and larger brakes, and with less weight in the nose than its fellow roadsters, the SLC 180 promises a superior steering experience.

Pricing for the new convertible starts at £32,039.
