The big debut for Mercedes-Benz at this year’s Geneva Motor Show is the new Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet, yet another drop-top model being launched in time for the spring. The keywords Daimler uses to describe this model is luxurious, youthful, and sporty.
Size-wise, Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet is pretty much the same as the coupe version and hey look virtually identical as well when the soft-top is in place. Speaking of the roof, it’s a fully automatic classic cabriolet fabric top that can be opened and closed in less than 20 seconds up to a speed of 50 km/h. It’s the same system as the S-Class Cabriolet and can be had in dark brown, dark blue, dark red or black.
There isn’t much to get excited about inside the cabin of Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet, not because it’s bad or anything, but because we’ve seen it on many other Mercedes models. What is worth mentioning is the new tech features, such as heat-reflecting leather in a total of five colour shades, AIRSCARF neck-level heating, and AIRCAP which greatly reduces the interior turbulence when the top is down.
When specified with the optionally available with AIRMATIC air suspension, the C-Cabrio comes with the DYNAMIC SELECT switch with “ECO”, “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Sport Plus” and “Individual” modes, which is handy if you opt for the 333-hp C400 model which can be had with 4MATIC. Other engines include 245-hp C300, 211-hp C250, 184-hp C200, 156-hp C180, 204-hp C250d, and 170-hp C220d.
