Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet - best convertibles

Combining Merc's build quality with open-top thrills, the C-Class Cabrio is a luxury drop-top with a premium feel

Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet - front

Mercedes has a history of building classy convertibles, and the latest C-Class Cabriolet maintains that tradition. It's helped by the fact it's based on the cool looking C-Class Coupe, which is an elegant four-seater already. But the Cabrio gets a thickly insulated folding fabric top that lets you choose between closed roof refinement or wind-in-the-hair fun.

 

The engine range stretches from mild to wild, with the C 200 and C 220 d models offering cruising comfort and efficiency, while the C 350 d raises the performance stakes before you get to the proper fast C 43 AMG and mental C 63 AMG high-performance versions.

While the AMG cars are fun to experience, you're better off with the smaller engines, because they deliver the kind of comfortable pace that makes top-down driving fun, but without particularly heavy running costs.
