Mercedes-Benz might be on a quest to cater to newer buyers and make its cars younger.
Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet
Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet Review
Mercedes-Benz is the first of the global luxury manufacturers to come to India. We have a soft corner for the three-pointed stars and Mercedes has responded by slowly bringing its entire global line-up to India. Based on the S-Class coupe, the S-Class Cabriolet is another exotic in the Mercedes’ bouquet of premium offerings.
The front fascia is from the S-Class but with a thick chrome slat and the three-pointed star like all performance Mercs. The bumper gets aggressive creases to suit the sporty character of the convertible. The long hood, raked windshield, four seats and the stubby boot are a perfect recipe for the side profile of a classic roadster. The long horizontal LED tail lamps wrap around the rear fender to give it a sporty look.
It is an S-Class and the flagship drop-top offered by Mercedes globally. Luxury, hence, comes in abundance. The pure white Nappa leather interiors laced with wooden inserts and top quality plastics give the S-Cabriolet cabin a classy and plush look. We need not really talk about the equipment and features as the top of the line convertible gets everything from automatic intelligent LED headlamps with DRLs, power seats with memory function, three-zone climate control et al. The electrically operated roof opens or closes in 20 seconds and can be operated up to speeds of 60kmph. The state of the art Burmester audio system floats with the roof to offer the best of music experiences with the roof closed or open.
Under the hood, you have the 4.7-litre twin-turbocharged petrol V8 engine powering the rear wheels. The 449bhp of power and 700Nm of torque are transferred through a nine-speed automatic gearbox. As for the safety, you have the Mercedes safety web of dual-stage airbags and the electronic stability program with a host of features including ABS-EBD with brake assist, anti-skid control, traction control, hill-assist and adaptive cruise control with emergency braking.
The S-Cabriolet competes with the Bentley GTC or the Rolls Royce Dawn as a package but costs much lower. For its price tag, you can also get the Maserati Gran Cabrio, the Ferrari California or the Jaguar F-type R is you need more sportiness.
