2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK to be rechristened as SLC-Class

2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK to be rechristened as SLC-Class

A heavily disguised test mule of the Mercedes-Benz SLK facelift was recently spotted undergoing trials in Europe. The bigger news however, is that Mercedes-Benz will be renaming the two-seater convertible to SLC-Class, in line with the company’s new nomenclature.

The current R172 Mercedes-Benz SLK is at present one of the oldest models in the German manufacturer’s line-up and hasn’t received any major update since 2012. The new SLC-Class will be a mid-cycle update of the current car and hence, will continue to be based upon the same platform.

Aesthetically though, the new SLC will feature some major updates to bring it in line with the current crop of Mercedes-Benz cars.  The front of the test mule sported heavy camouflage, though the overall shape of the front bumper and headlamps point at a more rounded design.

The new Mercedes-Benz SLC is expected to be globally unveiled quite late in the year, around the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. For now, Mercedes-Benz is planning to update the engine line-up of the current SL with the addition of a host of four-pot engines.
