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.
Closely related to the recently launched C-class coupe, the convertible is fitted with a multilayer softtop that we expect will offer high levels of refinement when it’s raised. Interior space is similar to that of the coupe, but there actually is more headroom in this convertible version. In the U.S., Mercedes-Benz will launch the C cabrio in two forms: the C300, with a 241-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, and the AMG C43, with a 362-hp twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6. Both engines funnel their output through a nine-speed automatic, but whereas the C300 will be available with rear- or 4MATIC all-wheel drive, all four wheels will be powered in every C43.
