Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet spotted; gets soft top

Hot on the heels of the recently spied Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, the Cabriolet version has now been spotted out in the open.

Despite the full camouflage, it is clear the car shares many of its design details with the upcoming C-Class Coupe. The prototype is also fitted with an AMG Sports kit, while the C-Class sedan influence can be seen in the front of the car.

At the back, the same slender, wide taillights as seen on the C-Class Coupe prototype is found in the drop top, too.

Unlike its rival, the BMW 4 Series Convertible, the C-Class Cabriolet will utilise a fabric roof instead of the more complex and heavier folding hardtop favoured by Munich.

Inside, the Cabriolet is expected to carry over the C-Class sedan’s and estate’s elegant cabin, but adds features like Airscarf neck warmers on the front seats.

Similarly, the regular C-Class’s power and drive train will feature under the bonnet of the Cabriolet, including the 375kW twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 destined for the C63 AMG Cabriolet.

The Mercedes C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet is expected to make their debut later this year, possibly at the Frankfurt Motor Show in March.
