Introduction

What Car? says...

It’s a big investment buying a swanky convertible such as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet and it's hard to justify on an objective level. So just think about it this way: you’ve put in the hours, you’ve dealt with the stress and office politics (just) and you've spent far too many sunny weekends inside poring over spreadsheets.

For all your efforts, you’ve just banked a healthy cheque and, well, why not treat yourself? Seeing as you need to make up for all that lost vitamin D, a convertible would actually be the healthy option and, as long as it seats four, you'd be able to make up for the lost time with your dearly beloved.

So there you are – no need to feel guilty any longer. Now you just need to know whether the C-Class Cabriolet is any good – or should you be looking at an Audi A5 Cabriolet or BMW 4 Series Convertible instead?

Keep reading on over the following pages to found out and get our recommendations on which engines and trims will suit you best. If you do fancy a C-Class Cabriolet or almost any other new car, have a look at our New Car Buying section for some chunky savings.
