The MB C-class Cabriolet is just such a car. It is the smallest four-seat drop-top that Mercedes offers, and is a rival to the BMW 4-series Convertible and Audi A5 Cabriolet. It uses the same range of engines as the C-class saloon, estate and Coupé, as well as offering manual or automatic gearboxes and the choice of rear-wheel drive or 4Matic four-wheel drive.
With its classy styling and inviting interior it looks every bit as special as you’d hope an expensive Mercedes soft-top would, but does it live up to the promise?
Powerful and efficient petrol and diesel engines with ECO start/stop function and an extensive 4MATIC range make for sporty performance and driving pleasure all year round. All are compliant with the Euro 6 emissions standard. Six petrol engines are available for the Cabriolet. The range of outputs extends from the 1.6-litre four-cylinder unit in the C 180 rated at 115 kW (156 hp) & Fuel consumption combined: 6.8–6.0 l/100 km combined CO₂ emissions: 154–135 g/km.
