2016 Geneva Motor Show – 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet
The final member in the C-Class family has been revealed at Geneva, and its the convertible version. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet offers accommodations for four passengers and benefits from a wide range of petrol and diesel engines. European customers will be offered six petrol and two diesel engines
Let’s start with the 154-hp turbo 1.6-liter C180 and dream about the 362-hp twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 C43 AMG 4-Matic. The company’s 2.2-liter diesel engine is iconic by now, and it will be available in 168-hp and 201-hp versions, for the C220 d and C250 d respectively. Also worth mentioning is that the C200 and C220 d versions will be featuring the company’s 4Matic all-wheel drive system – if the customers so desire.
On an aesthetic level, Mercedes will offer a choice of four different colors for the fabric soft top, including dark brown, dark blue, dark red or black. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet will open up to the sun’s warm rays in less than 20 seconds at speeds of up to 50 km/h (31 mph). US fans should know that the North American market will get two versions, specifically the C300 – 241 hp coming out of a turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol engine – the range-topping C43 AMG. Here’s to good weather, so you can enjoy the first Mercedes C-Class with an open top!
