The 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 Porsche 718 Boxster and its fixed-roof sibling, the Porsche 718 Cayman, are brilliant performers with some of the best steering and handling at any price.
The BMW Z4 is new this year, and it’s grown; it’ll take a while to grow on us, we think.
The Jaguar F-Type convertible and coupe offers good looks and plenty of power, but doesn't quite deliver on its sporty promise.
Be sure to look at the latest Mazda MX-5 Miata; it’s entirely lacking in the SLC's luxurious accoutrements, but has near-unlimited driving thrills all at a much lower price.
