The sporting look of Mercedes-Benz latest range of cars is translated perfectly in the C-Class Cabriolet. Muscular curves and sculpts meet slicing chisels and a low bumper with gaping front air intakes for a bold road presence. The waistline is nearly perfectly straight, giving it a highly balanced look that brings the elegance you expect of a Mercedes-Benz. With its soft-top roof, you can enjoy the sun’s rays on warm days. Fold it down in just 24 seconds with the touch of a button.
The sportiness continues behind the wheel with the low-slung seating position, while the wide central tunnel offers the sophistication every driver enjoys. Signature Mercedes-Benz triple air vents surrounded in chrome sit in the centre of the dashboard for vintage-inspired elegance. Piano black lacquer and leather add to the luxurious feel of the premium car. There’s no need to keep the roof up on cold but sunny days because the neck-level heating system will keep you warm. Automatic climate control will keep you comfortable when the roof is up too. As one of the marque’s larger models, there’s plenty of space for four adults to travel in comfort.
Performance and efficiency
Diesel and petrol engines are offers, with the automatic options mated to a nine-speed gearbox for seamless changes and a smooth drive as you reach faster speeds. The fastest of the selection is the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC which can hit 60mph from standstill in less than five seconds. The four-wheel drive set-up makes this particular option ultra-capable on difficult roads and in tough conditions. Most of the C-Class Cabriolet models reach 60mph in around eight seconds.
If you’re looking to enjoy plenty of mileage from your tank, go for a one of the diesels. The C 220 d unit can return up to 62mpg on the combined cycle.
One hundred percent Mercedes-Benz, expect no less than beautiful smoothness and expert steering when you drive the C-Class Cabriolet. When you’re driving through villages at speeds of up to 30mph, you can open and close the roof to make the journey even more enjoyable.
Safety and technology
With different driving modes, you can choose more than just roof-up or roof-down with the C-Class Cabriolet, giving you the opportunity to get more out of your car. A seven-inch media display features as standard for easy use of all the infotainment packed into the convertible. It plays host to a Garmin® MAP PILOT navigation system, reversing camera and your smartphone.
Staying alert on the road and noticing every potential collision is impossible, especially when you are driving on long journeys. Thankfully the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet brings you Collision Prevention Assist Plus which stops you getting too close to cars in front. Parktronic guides you into tight spaces and dual-stage airbags offer extra protection if you do have a collision.
