Mercedes-Benz Teases 2017 C-Class Cabrio
  • Mercedes-Benz releases official sketch of the C-Class Cabrio!

Mercedes has laid the ground for its Geneva Motor Show showcase by moving forward with the C-class program.

CarScoops just reported that Mercedes is officially working on its C-class program and it seems the program will be going ahead as planned before the Geneva Motor Show.

Mercedes just released official sketches of the C-Class cabriolet. It also seems the C-Class-based convertible will drop the CLK moniker to make its link to the C- family obvious.

From the sketches we can deduce the new Cabrio will be all but identical to the successful C-Class coupe. The Cabrio will be offered with the same mix of engines on the new C-Class range.

The engines to be offered include four-, six-, and eight-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. The soft-top present in the Cabrio will replace the fixed roof in the Coupe.

The C-Class Cabrio will also be offered in an AMG variant. The AMG variant will have a 4.0-litre V8 engine under the hood. The Cabrio will thus be able to have 503 horsepower and 516 lb-ft. 

According to Mercedes-Benz, the new C-Class is a major leap in performance, dynamics and styling. The Mercedes executives are already planning on adding more models to the line-up. The C-Class Cabrio is a very handsome package and we can expect future cars to have the same dynamics.

The C-Class Cabrio will rival the Audi A5 Cabrio, BMW 4-Series Convertible and Infiniti Q60 Convertible. More details on the C-Class Cabrio will be released at the Geneva Motor Show on 1st March, 2016.
