Mercedes-Benz is launching into the open-air season with the first cabriolet based on the C-Class, thereby rounding off its range of cabriolets with a classic fabric soft top. The cabriolet is optionally available with the AIRCAP automatic draught stop system and AIRSCARF neck-level heating - for exceptional comfort during open-top driving 365 days a year. The new 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission is available for all engine variants. Also on board: proven assistance systems and a new infotainment system.


The same dropping line is taken up by the new Mercedes-AMG C43 4MATIC Cabriolet which, however, has an even sportier look with its distinct AMG design and specific light-alloy wheels. It thus underscores the progressive nature and performance of the brand.


The fully automatic classic cabriolet fabric soft top comes in black in the basic variant or is optionally available with a multi-layer acoustic soft top in dark brown, dark blue, dark red or black. It significantly reduces the wind/driving noise. Based on the S-Class Cabriolet, the soft top also meets high quality standards in terms of durability and function. It can be opened and closed in less than 20 seconds up to a speed of 50 km/h. After opening, it folds down quietly and carefully and is stored in the soft-top compartment in the boot. In terms of its shape and colour, the cover of the soft-top compartment is an integral part of the interior and is made of the same material as the beltline.


The rear seats are in the form of individual seats. Their backrests offer a through-loading feature, can be split 50:50 for high everyday practicality and can be completely folded down.


Six petrol engines are available for the Cabriolet. The range of outputs extends from the 1.6-litre four-cylinder unit in the C 180 rated at 156bhp to the 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine in the Mercedes-AMG C43 4MATIC Cabriolet 367bhp. The C 200 is optionally available with 4MATIC all-wheel drive.


The diesel models are powered by a four-cylinder engine delivering 170bhp in the C 220 d or 204bhp in the C 250 d and are equipped with eco-friendly SCR technology (Selective Catalytic Reduction) for exhaust after treatment. 4MATIC is available for the C 220 d. The new 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission can be ordered for all engine variants.
