After a panel of 75 automotive journalists from 22 countries named the last year's C-Class 2015 World Car of the Year, would you expect our engineers to coast? Not when they could accelerate forward. So this summer, C is for Cabriolet, and with the Mercedes-AMG C43, AMG C63 and AMG C63 S variants, its intense racing heritage ensures that it's speeding ahead towards more victories.
The all-new 2017 C-Class Cabriolet comes equipped with a refreshingly responsive 241-hp turbocharged engine and is invigorated by a 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission and sporty paddle shifters. The AMG C63 Cabriolet is powered by a pulse-racing handcrafted AMG V8 biturbo engine—the only 8-cylinder offered in the segment—delivering 469 hp (C63) or 503 hp (C63 S), while the AMG C43 Cabriolet offers an AMG-enhanced 362-hp V6 biturbo engine.
Each C-Class Cabriolet comes standard with heated seats and AIRSCARF neck-level heating, and the AIRCAP automatic draft stop system is an option for exceptional comfort during open-top driving 365 days a year. Within 20 seconds and at speeds up to 31 mph, the C-Class Cabriolet converts from a seductive soft top coupe to an open-air extrovert. The elegant, multi-layer acoustic soft top—available in four colors—provides a comfortable, insulated ride that shuts out ambient noise and improves speech intelligibility, even at high speeds.
The C-Class Cabriolet is one more reason that, for Mercedes-Benz, form doesn't just meet function. It engages in a passionate relationship.
