The Mercedes-Benz C-class Cabriolet has its nice angles, and with multiple body and fabric roof colour options, no two Cabriolets will look the same. Like its sedan sibling, the C Cabriolet is richly finished on the inside. The front seats are comfy but upright backrests mark down the rear seat experience. Rear headroom is also in short supply with the roof in place, while luggage room is compromised with the roof tucked away. For the record, the C Cabriolet’s fabric roof can fold/unfold in 20sec at speeds of up to 50kph.
The Mercedes-Benz C-class Cabriolet does have sporty pretensions but it’s a car that’s best suited to relaxed cruising. But don’t be mistaken, the 258hp, 2.0-litre petrol motor has ample power and the nice steering also gives the car a pleasant fluidity in corners. Ride comfort is good but what are really impressive are the noise levels, both with the roof up and down.
