Latest digital renders reveal the final design of the Mercedes’ hotly anticipated new C-Class Cabrio, set to become the cheapest convertible in the brand’s portofolio.
The new C-Class Cabrio will hit Mercedes showrooms next year with its coupe sibling already confirmed for this September.
Its MRA platform will be lifted straight from the current C-Class sedan, a predictable decision, following the move upmarket for the future E-Class Coupe and Cabrio to the bigger model’s architecture.
The new Cabrio will feature a canvas roof, solution with inherent advantages for both weight and cost. In therms of design, the Mercedes C-Class Cabrio will surpass even the S-class Coupe’s sleekness, says design chief Gorden Wagener, who insists the C will be “even better to drive than it looks”.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabrio will rival the likes of Audi A5 cabrio and BMW 3 Series cabrio, a territory previously covered, albeit in larger form, by the CLK cabrio and the old E-Class convertible that’s closer in size to the BMW 6 Series.
