Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet Spied Without Disguise Before Feb 29 Reveal
| Posted by Brad Anderson
It was bound to happen and it just has; the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet has been spied in the flesh completely undisguised.
The following video shows two examples at a Mercedes facility, one painted blue and the other finished in grey both wearing distinct silver wheels with different spoke designs.
As we've long expected, the C-Class Cabriolet looks essentially identical to the Coupe albeit with a folding fabric roof instead of a fixed hardtop.
This new roof configuration has necessitated some modifications to the rear decklid but, apart from that, almost everything is the same as the coupe.
When it launches in Geneva, the BMW 4-Series Convertible rival will become the fourth body style in the C-Class range. We know that like other droptop models from the German automaker, the C-Class Cabrio will include an advanced wind protection system and AIRSCARF, a neck heating system.
All the engines from the coupe, sedan and estate models will be available, including the range-topping 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 for the C63 Cabriolet and C63 S and a 362 hp 3.0-liter V6 for the Mercedes-AMG C43 Cabriolet.
