The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet has been introduced to the world at this year’s edition of the Geneva Motor Show. And it will be put for sale this month, what finally allows the carmaker to detail the new model. And will give it the perfect environment in the Northern hemisphere for it to sell as much as Mercedes-Benz wishes it to.
The C-Class Cabriolet is 4.69 m long, 1.81 m wide, 1.41 m tall and has a wheelbase of 2.84 m. Its luggage compartment can hold 360 l with the canvas top on and 285 l when it is folded. Weight varies depending on the version. And the new C-Class Cabriolet has 9 of them: C 180, C 200, C 200 4MATIC, C 250, C 300, C 400 4MATIC, C 220 d, C 220 4MATIC and C 250 d. The car will also have a C 63 AMG version, but Mercedes-Benz has not disclosed any information about it so far.
The C180 has 2 transmission options: a 6-speed manual transmission and the 9G-Tronic 9-speed automatic transmission. These gearbox options are also offered to the C 200 and the C 220 d versions. All the others have the 9G-Tronic as standard.
The C180 is powered by a 1.6 4-cylinder engine that delivers 115 kW at 5,300 rpm and 250 Nm from 1,200 rpm up to 4,000 rpm. The C 200, C 250 and C 300 use a 2.0 4-cylinder engine with different outputs, respectively 135 kW, 155 kW and 180 kW. The C 400 has a 3.0 V6 that delivers 245 kW.
All the turbodiesel models use the same 2.1 4-cylinder engine. The difference is the total power each of them offers: 125 kW for the C 220 d and 150 kW for the C 250 d.
