Mercedes announced the SLK back in 1996 and dropped it into showrooms in 1997. Since then, more than 600,000 units have been sold, but the roadster’s reign has come to an end – at least as the SLK anyway. Set to be launched in spring of 2016, the Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class replaces the SLK, but only in name and not in spirit – the SLC will continue the SLK’s reign, sharing at least some of the C-Class DNA.

As Daimler AG Board of Management member Ola Kallenius put it, “In 1996, Mercedes-Benz redefined the roadster with its innovative vario-roof, and combined open-air driving pleasure with uncompromised comfort in poor weather. The renamed compact roadster remains an ideal combination of passion and common sense, appealing to both the heart and the mind.”

What you’ll find as you browse the official pictures of the new SLC is that it carries a lot of the same design queues of the SLK it replaces. But, the SLC also has its own design characteristics, such as redesigned bumper covers and body trim, as well as new technology. On the U.S. market the SLC will debut in two trims, at least at first, with the SLC300 being the entry level model and the SLC43 being crowned as the high-performance variant. So, what will we see when the new SLC-Class hits showroom floors? Keep reading to find out.

Updated 12/16/2015: Mercedes dropped the official details on the new SLC-Class - aka the facelift version of the previous SLK.
