The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class competes in a segment that has gotten increasingly edgy, leaving it as one of the more conservative and comfort-oriented roadsters in the group.
The BMW Z4 is one of the SLC's closest competitors, but tends to offer more balanced performance.
The Jaguar F-Type convertible and coupe offers good looks and plenty of power, but doesn't quite deliver on its sporty promise.
And buyers who are interested in roadsters will want to look at the recently redesigned Mazda MX-5 Miata; it doesn't have the SLC's luxurious accoutrements, but comes with unrivaled driving thrills at a much lower price.
