They do this every time a new star is born. So they are doing it again as they are getting the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet ready for its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The new convertible baby made in Stuttgart has been sent online in the shape of the sketch.
Two weeks to go and the tech-artists at Mercedes-Benz can’t contain themselves. And neither can we, when we see the drawing of the four-seater posted on social media. The premium brand is going to take the wraps off their new drop-top vehicle: the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet. The convertible is set to join an exclusive entourage made up by the SL, the SLC and the AMG S 65 Cabriolet.
A C 300 version will likely be revealed first, sporting a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine developing 245 HP. But the brand is saving the best for last. The Mercedes-AMG C 43 and C 63 versions will follow shortly with a power boost under the hood: the 3.0-liter V6 roaring out no less than 367 HP and upgraded chassis performance for the mid-level C 43 and the 4.0-liter biturbo V8 boasting roughly 510 HP for the performance-oriented C 63. A C 350 Plug-In version is also expected to show up later on.
The C-Class Cabriolet comes with a soft top, unlike its convertible rival, the BMW 4 Series, but similar to the open-air Audi A5.
The first ever convertible set to bear the C-Class badge is going to be publically displayed on the 1st of March in Geneva and is going on sale next autumn.
