The Mercedes SLC isn’t the last word in space – and you probably wouldn’t expect it to be – but, while the boot is a decent size for a sports car, it shrinks markedly when the roof is down

Passenger space

Space for two is as much as you’d expect from a two-seater convertible and the driving position is low and sporty. The seats focus on holding you in place rather than pampering you, but according to reviewers they’re good at both.

A cool option is Magic Sky Control – it costs £1,995 and allows you to adjust the amount of light that comes into the cabin by changing the transparency of the panoramic roof.

Storage space

Now, a two-seater convertible will never be particularly practical but at least the SLC gets decently sized door bins and quite the big glovebox.

Perhaps the best thing you can say about the SLC's practicality is that it's much better than you probably expect it to be

Boot space

The SLC is a small roadster, so boot space isn’t huge, but at 335 litres with the roof up it can easily fit weekend luggage for two, plus it’s the largest in class leading the BMW Z4 (310 litres) and Audi TT Roadster (280 litres). Unsurprisingly, the load capacity diminishes significantly with the roof down, but you can still fit a soft bag or two.
