2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC Class vs. Its Competition

2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC Final Edition
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The BMW Z4 is completely redesigned and better than ever in an era where small sports cars are seriously declining in sales.

The Jaguar F-Type runs the gamut from 4-cylinder sports car to monster V-8 supercar, and all versions are stylish and fun.

Mazda’s brilliant MX-5 Miata is the world’s best-selling sports car for a reason, and costs nearly half the price of a new SLC-Class.

The Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman are the undisputed best to drive of the bunch and come with classic Porsche quality and customization.

Finally, the Toyota Supra is basically a BMW Z4 underneath, but offers a return to form for the iconic Japanese sports car.

Quick Specs
5.6
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class sings a pretty swan song—and you can hear it even when the top’s down.
6.4
The 2020 BMW Z4 keeps alive the Sunday drive.
5.8
With the 2020 Supra, Toyota doesn’t disappoint. The new Supra has agile moves, ready inline-6 power, and loads of racetrack or autocross fun.
6.0
The 2019 Mazda MX-5 keeps the crown of “affordable and fun” with a more potent engine this year.
7.2
The 2019 Porsche 718 may never be the champion of the automaker’s lineup, but it’s a champ everywhere else.
