Mercedes-Benz Introduced The 2017 C-Class Cabriolet
Mercedes-Benz Introduced The 2017 C-Class Cabriolet, the first open-top member of the C-Class line.
Mercedes-Benz has long enjoyed a healthy reputation for quality, comfort, and solidity, but it is once again making cars that are beautiful, too. The latest in the company’s string of handsome designs is the all-new C-class cabriolet, which may be among the most attractive vehicles on the star-studded floor at the 2016 Geneva show, where it makes its debut.
Mercedes-Benz Introduced The 2017 C-Class Cabriolet with the top trim AMG model boasts a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to sprint from 0 to 60 in 4.7 seconds and top out at 155 mph.
Mercedes-Benz Introduced The 2017 C-Class Cabriolet, equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, cranking out 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to zoom to 60mph in 6.3 seconds.
The standard and AMG editions will be offered with a new nine-speed automatic transmission, as well as a canvas roof that can be lowered in 20 seconds at speeds of up to 31 miles per hour.
The C300 Cabriolet will be available in standard and 4Matic options late this summer, with the AMG model to follow in the fall.
And there also remains some internal competition: Mercedes-Benz still sells the E-class cabriolet, an elegant four-seat machine that’s actually based on the last-generation C-class (not the E, despite its badging).
Until a new E-class drop top is launched—and that won’t occur before late 2017—we predict the current model will be made even more irrelevant in the sales charts by this new C-class convertible. After all, styling sells, and the C300 and C43 cabriolets excel at that. Now you know that Mercedes-Benz Introduced The 2017 C-Class Cabriolet.
