The brand new car from Mercedes Benz has launched the AMG SLC 43 in India. This model will replace the long-standing SLK range by making their third launch by the German carmaker this year in India. The new SLC 43 AMG has featured with the hard-top convertible roof, and the styling of this new car is slightly different from SLK, and it also replaces the interiors which have been polished to give more modern and a premium look. SLC 43 AMG is similar to the same platform which is similar to the C-Class.
AMG has worked upon the powertrain which makes the SLC 43 AMG stand out. This car is powered with 3.0 L twin-turbocharged petrol V6 engine developing up to 364 hp and 520 Nm of torque. By using Nine-speed automatic transmission, the engine transfers its power to the rear wheels. Being lighter than the SLK model, this SLC offers the better balance between the performance and the efficiency.
SLC 43 AMG is the next model to the SLK 55 AMG, which aspirated the V8 motor which developed 415PS at 6,800rpm and 540Nm at 4,500rpm.
The car gets the LED headlamps completely, and diamond-like grille with the 211 studs and slightly rounded higher than the SLK model. The car has undergone some revisions and the features with the new steering wheel, and the entertainment system has been improved, push button starter and the new gear selector are made available in SLC43 AMG.
