A flagship for the road and sky: The S-Class Cabriolet returns

For the first time in 45 years, the S-Class reaches for the sky in a most literal way. Just as its convertible forebears are among the most coveted, the 2017 S-Class Cabriolet raises the pinnacle of desire with unmatched style, craftsmanship, innovation and luxury. In every way, it's a modern classic that advances the art of open-air motoring.

All-season power soft top

A grand opening every day: Finely tailored soft top

Three layers, including rich fabric in any of four colors, are impeccably crafted to impart coupelike comfort, sleekness and outward views when raised. Touch a button and the top whisks into hiding in under 20 seconds. You can even continue lowering the top in motion, up to 28 mph. An electric divider automatically partitions the trunk.

Sculptural 4-seat cabin

A gallery of modern luxury: Exquisite surroundings for four.

A flowing, three-dimensional sculpture of hand-polished wood, precisely stitched leather and satin aluminum envelop the four seats of the S-Class Cabriolet. Unparalleled in its advanced technologies, it is also a haven of passenger-obsessed comforts. And with the top down, its inner beauty becomes equally apparent to passing admirers.

Brilliant details

A jewel in motoring's crown: Scintillation as a science.

From its standard all-LED exterior and multicolor cabin lighting to its available chrome-tipped diamond-block grille, the artfulness and advancement of the S-Class Cabriolet shine with equal brilliance. Even more captivating by day or night, the headlamps can be accented with genuine Swarovski® crystals that make every move a grand entrance.


Performance

Advanced power, audible pleasure

Symphony of performance: Biturbo power, active exhaust

The biturbo V-8s of the S-Class orchestrate their power with the millisecond-quick precision of high-pressure Direct Injection and multispark ignition. Active flaps in their exhaust systems let the 449-hp S550 and 577-hp AMG S63 play their own unique crescendos in response to their driver's enthusiasm.

Advanced aerodynamics

Air of authority: Honed to harness the wind

Top up or down, an S-Class Cabriolet sneaks quietly through the wind. From its sweeping shape to the extensive refinement of its air intakes, mirrors, underbody paneling and more, every detail helps it make it more stable, secure and serene. And its low coefficient of drag sets a new benchmark in its class.

AIRMATIC air suspension

Elegance of an athlete: Air suspensions turn pressure into poise

Multi-mode, self-leveling and self-lowering AIRMATIC® suspension generates supreme comfort, but it's even more adept at turning pressurized air into poised agility. A torque-vectoring brake system enhances cornering response, while specific performance calibrations further sharpen the AMG Adaptive Sport Suspension in the S63 and S65.

The AMG S63 Cabriolet

Wide-open throttle: Tops in top-down performance

Handcrafted horsepower isn't the only way the AMG S63 is a thoroughbred. The first all-wheel-drive Mercedes-Benz cabriolet, its AMG Performance 4MATIC® and AMG SPEEDSHIFT® MCT 7-speed expertly apply its power for a 3.8-second rush to 60 mph. And from its massive brakes to its exclusive instruments, the hands of AMG are evident throughout.

Technology

Open for anything

Always in season: Advances in open-air driving comfort

Enjoying the sunshine is a breeze in an S-Class Cabriolet. Its advanced climate control adapts automatically to the top position, so you don't have to change a single setting. The AIRCAP system quells top-down turbulence even at highway speed. And AIRSCARF® wraps your neck and shoulders in warm air, to turn a chilly evening into a cozy one.

MAGIC VISION CONTROL

A clear improvement: Windshield washing without the wave

Activating the windshield washers in an open convertible is no longer an act of bravery or fashion sabotage. With MAGIC VISION CONTROL, hundreds of tiny laser-cut holes dispense heated fluid along the leading edge of each wiper blade. The glass clears in fewer swipes, with no tidal wave of spray to block your view or splash into the cabin.

Innovative luxuries

Attentive to detail: A sensation for each of your senses

Driving an S-Class Cabriolet to the spa might be more rejuvenating than the spa itself. Its front seats can offer a "hot stone" massage while you rest on heated armrests. Its Air Balance system can ionize the cabin air for summer-storm freshness, then infuse it with aromatherapy. And it can immerse you in lush Burmester® 3D Surround Sound.

Pioneering safety systems

Protective by nature: A 360-degree network of safety advances

Along with its highly rigid body, advanced restraints, the S-Class literally raises the bar for cabriolet safety: Its dual pop-up roll bars were pioneered by Mercedes-Benz. Same goes for its Intelligent Drive system of driver assists. A 360-degree network of cameras, radar and other sensors can help get you out of danger before you're in it.

Even the most advanced safety systems may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. Systems does not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every movement of other vehicles and pedestrians. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for system alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. See Operator's Manual for system operating speeds and additional information and warnings. Some systems may be optional.
