The C-Class loses its roof, but gains a lot more

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet Review
The new Mercedes C-Class had taken the bantam-weight luxury sedan battle to the next round. Mercedes now has taken the game one-step further in India. The German marque has brought the C-Class Cabriolet to India – the soft top convertible version of the C-Class.
The C-Class cabriolet is built on the new C-Class platform and has the same design cues. The typical Mercedes fascia of the rounded trapezoid grille and headlamps with LED DRLs continues with its presence. The grille though gets the thick horizontal slat typical of performance Mercs. It gets new bumpers both fore and aft for a sportier look. The frameless elongated doors look sleek along with the raked windshield and the rounded rear fenders. The black cloth roof looks dapper and can be retracted within 30 seconds.
The interior is plush and comes draped in white leather. The C-Class theme has been continued along with the tablet infotainment screen on the leather upholstered dashboard. The cabriolet will come with the top-of-the line Burmester audio system and a touch-panel controller. The cabin has been truncated to accommodate the folding roof and hence the space in the rear passenger seats is slightly compromised. Luxury features like power seats with lumbar support, electric headrest adjustment, adjustable steering column, automatic headlamps and wipers are all present.
The C-Cabriolet comes with the C300 setup that gets a 2.0-litre turbocharged four cylinder petrol engine. The engine generates 241bhp of power and 370Nm of torque and is mated to the new nine-speed automatic that powers the rear wheels. It zooms to 100kmph in 6.7 seconds and the top whack is electronically limited at 250kmph.
For safety, it gets dual fornt airbags, knee airbags as well as window-bags integrated at the top of the front doors. It also comes with a host of driving aids as a part of its comprehensive ESP.The C-Cabriolet does not have a direct competitor as such but it gives a more plush option for those who would want to spend on a drop-top roadster. For the same price tag though, you can also get a BMW 5 Series, Audi A6 or Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
