Mercedes SLC 2016: the new range of engines to detail


The new Mercedes SLC 2016 presents a range of engines renewed

The new Mercedes SLC was unveiled virtually during the early hours of yesterday. The compact roadster German suffered a deep restyling of half of its commercial life cycle in which, in addition to the relevant cosmetic changes, it lost its original name -SLK – to continue with the re-ordination of the range and so do not forget their link with the sedan Mercedes Class C.

The new SLC says goodbye to the V8 in favor of a V6 more efficient

But Mercedes has also taken the occasion to provide the sports of a offer of engines is more logical and continuous. Previously, it was available in the versions SLK 200, SLK 350 and Mercedes-AMG SLK 55 in the versions gasoline, to which we add the SLK 250 d as the only option on the diesel. jumps of power among the variants gasoline were abysmal: 184 HP, 306 HP and 421 HP, respectively, consciousness that has taken on this new stage in order to shorten distances.

Now the SLC adds a version of access is least powerful, the SLC 180, and eliminates the versions SLC 350 and SLC 55 in favor of other mechanics more modern and efficient, the SLC 300 and SLC 43. The variants SLC 200 or SLC 250 d remain intact. After this reorganization, the current range of engines of the Mercedes SLC in 2016 is this way:

SLC 180 SLC 200 SLC 300 SLC 250 d SLC 43
Cylinders 4 in line 4 in line 4 in line 4 in line 6 V
Cubicaje (cc) 1.595 1.991 1.991 2.143 2.996
output Power (rpm) 156 HP (5.300) 184 CV (5.500) 245 CV (5.500) 204 CV (3.800) 367 HP (5,500 6.000)
maximum Torque (rpm) 250 Nm (1,200 a to 4,000) 300 Nm (1,200 a to 4,000) 370 Nm (1,300 to 4,000 a) 500 Nm (1,600 to 1,800) 520 Nm (2,000 to 4.200)
Consumption l/100 km 5,6 (5,6) 6,1 (5,7) (5,8) (4,4) (7,8)
Emissions g/km of CO2 127 (128) 142 (133) (134) (114) (178)
Acceleration 0-100 km/h (sec.) 7,9 (8,1) 7,0 (6,9) (5,8) (6,6) (4,7)
maximum Speed (km/h) 226 (223) 240 (237) (250) (245) (250)

Now the butt-end of the SLC will be led by a V6 high performance and greater efficiency

How you can see, you no longer have to choose between three options gasoline: four, six, or eight cylinders. The sports completely lost the option to mount the V8(421 HP) in favor of a V6 367 HP that in terms of performance has little to envy to the eight-cylinder (+0.1 seconds in completing the sprint) while it has a higher fuel efficiency and low emissions (-0,6 liters of consumption combined and -17 g/km of CO2).

The range is now more comprehensive and rational

on the other hand, the four cylinder SLC 300 245 HP replaces block V6 of the SLK 350-306 HP. As with the update to the top range, the new engine that comes in the replacement is slightly slower (+0.2 seconds in the 0 to 100) but the difference in consumption approved between one and another is remarkable (-1,4-liter). In addition, there is a leap so high with respect to the powers of the higher models and lower.

SLC 200 and SLC 250 d are the only ones that are kept in the range after the update. Although they seem to be exactly the same, in some measurements shed improved results in terms of consumption and emissions refiere.


All variants of the SLC can be associated to the dual clutch transmission 9G-Tronic

The client will have at its disposal any version with the dual-clutch transmission sports 9G-Tronic nine-speed being standard on the SLC 250 d, SLC 300 and SLC 43 and optional on the SLC 180, and SLC 200, the latter mounted in series, a manual change of six relations.

The list prices have not been revealed but considering that now it possesses a engine access more content should have to suffer a substantial reduction in the “price from”.
