The Mercedes C-Class has been a reliable and ever-present model in the Mercedes range for a considerable time and for good reason. Its fantastic space and practicality make the C-Class the best choice in the saloon market.
With a saloon, estate and coupe body types, the C-Class is also incredibly adaptable. But one version that hasn't been tried before is a convertible, and now Mercedes has revealed the stylish new C-Class Cabriolet.
Taking the fantastic style cues from the C-Class Coupe, the Cabriolet's outline looks very similar to its hard-top sibling, with only minor dimension changes when the roof is up. With the long bonnet, sweeping lines and elegant look, the C-Class Cabriolet is a fantastic luxury cruiser.
Despite the folding roof being packed into the rear portion, the boot space is still superb with a 285-litre capacity with the roof down and 360 litres with the roof up, offering fantastic practicality for a cabriolet.
The fabric folding roof has been based on the one used on the luxurious S-Class Cabriolet, so it offers fantastic style and durability. The mechanism can be used at speeds up to 30mph and takes 20 seconds to raise and lower.
To make sure you aren't uncomfortable with the roof down, the Cabriolet comes with the AIRCAP draught stop system and optional AIRSCARF neck-level heating so that even in cooler weather, you can enjoy having the roof down and take in your surroundings. Also fitted with sensitive climate control, you can alter the internal cockpit temperature to suit your, no matter the temperature outside.
With the fitted suspension with selected damper settings, you have a great feel for the road, and with the optional AIRMATIC suspension you have choice of ride height, comfort and feel.
With safety assist becoming more prevalent in vehicles nowadays, the C-Class Cabriolet has plenty to offer to help you on the road and make sure you stay safe. ATTENTION ASSIST, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS and Stop&Go Pilot on hand to keep you on the right course and makes sure you don't have any contact with fellow road users. Also fitted with Parking Assist and 360-degree camera view, you can park safely.
The interior is also superbly finished, with quality materials, fantastic accessories and excellent infotainment system making sure you have the best experience in your C-Class Cabriolet every time you step inside. With Bluetooth and WiFi hotspot functionality, you will always be connected.
The C-Class Cabriolet can be fitted with both petrol and diesel engines, starting from the four-cylinder diesel in the C 220 d up to the V6 fitted to the C 43 4MATIC Mercedes-AMG model. The power ranges from 170bhp up to 367bhp, clearly showing the Cabriolet can be as powerful as you want it to be.
