No vehicle makes a better excuse for taking long, twisty roads on weekend adventures than a two-door convertible. Ideally, you want a combination of nimble handling and compliant road manners, and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC Roadster absolutely meets those requirements.

This compact Mercedes convertible was first called the SLK-Class when it originally went on sale in the 2011 model year. Beyond the name, much has changed since then. Today, the 2018 SLC Roadster comes in two versions: the more affordable and fuel-efficient SLC 300 and the performance-oriented AMG SLC 43.

The SLC 300 packs a turbocharged four-cylinder engine whose 241 horsepower provides acceleration that's adequate for a small sports car with a base engine. Though previous performance AMG models featured a muscle-car-sounding V8, the SLC 43 makes do with a twin-turbocharged V6 that offers an entertaining 362 hp.

The SLC Roadster hasn't received the interior updates you'll find elsewhere in the lineup, such as a large digital instrument cluster, but the look and feel remain unmistakably Mercedes-Benz. There are echoes of the top-tier SL-Class and flagship sports car AMG GT despite the sizable difference in cost.

Also, like the SL-Class, the SLC Roadster uses a similar glass roof. It's attractive, but it can let in a lot of heat on sunny days, making the optional Magic Sky Control — which darkens the glass at the press of a button — a highly recommended addition. On cooler days, the optional Airscarf system, which blows warm air from seat-mounted vents, means that drivers can enjoy top-down motoring without shivering.

The materials quality is top-notch and nothing short of what you'd expect from the German luxury brand. Although a little cozier in the cockpit than some other competitors, the SLC should still serve as an effective grand tourer on longer-distance trips. And the surprisingly ample trunk space makes the SLC a perfect vehicle for intimate road trips.

Though competitors may offer more muscle, more agility or even a couple more seats, if a perfect marriage of luxury and sporty roadster is what you are looking for, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC Roadster needs to be on your list. Be sure to read the full review on Edmunds and let us help find the perfect SLC Roadster for your needs.
