It is very clear that the reporter doing the feature article in Auto Express doesn't know his backside from the SLC from his elbow.
There are lots of inaccuracies and also rubbish: The "new" options are not new at all! Harman Kardon has always been an option! aS have the clock, parktronic and lighting.
The SLC43 AMG is 390bhp not 385 as stated
Climate Control is NOT standard on the UK SLC43, just the air-con. Same with Intelligent LED lights - they have been standard on the UK SLC43 for a while. Plus Magno grey has been available for a while
As a side note, my delivery of factory order SLC43 has apparently been delayed because UK cars have to be individually tested for exhaust emissions and CO2 and the "generic average" fuel economy and emissions and CO2, as stated in the brochure, will not be taken as applying to individual cars. This could be a knock on from the VW (and now MB) fiasco over emissions lies / cover-ups
Does this mean that if you get a "better / worse than average" car with higher emissions, it will need to be de-tuned / re-tuned to make the emissions / CO2 fit within specific parameters?
(It's possible my dealer knows nothing, however, as they have been rubbish all along and I only stuck with them because the discount off list was way better than any other I could find.)
