Mercedes-Benz finally have a mid-sized convertible again to challenge the BMW 4-Series and Audi A5. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet does a great job with handsome looks, smart interiors and a good range of engines.
The design lanuage runs through the full range of Mercedes convertibles making them hard to distinguish from eachother at first glance. The C-Class doesn’t look quite as elegant as its larger siblings but in other regards it is very impressive. The interiors are particularly well finished. Some might object to the not uncommon stuck-on tablet style display but drivers will find everything well laid out and comfortable. The same can’t be said for rear seat passengers unless they are child-sized.
The C-Class inherits the Aircap wind deflector system from the E-Class which does a good job of keeping drafts away from front seat passengers. It does look rather strange though and adds a little wind noise when in use.
There are engines to suit most requirements although no hybrid or electric options so far. The C300 petrol engine strikes a fine balance between economy and performance and is our pick of the range. It is the same 2-litre petrol engine used in the C200 but with considerably more turbo assistance.
