Sport-tuned for agility, the 4-wheel multilink suspension is subtly lowered to feel as good as it looks. Selective damping instantly firms up in corners, yet relaxes to tame rough roads.
The quick, smooth 9G-TRONIC transmission helps keep the turbo power on tap at all times. Shift paddles let you take charge. Three overdrive ratios offer relaxed highway cruising.
Available 4MATIC® all-wheel drive can send power to the wheels that can put it to good use. Expertly turning traction into action, it helps make the C-Class Cabriolet far more than a fair-weather fun car.
DYNAMIC SELECT dials in performance with the tap of a console button. Four preset modes vary shift points, throttle, steering and more, from easygoing ECO to sharp Sport+. Or create your own mode.
The 255-hp 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine combines numerous advances to deliver more power from less fuel. Its rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection can fine-tune themselves every few milliseconds to optimize performance, efficiency and emissions. An intercooled twin-scroll turbocharger and CAMTRONIC variable valve lift help deliver all of the engine's 273 lb-ft of torque from just 1,800 rpm, for vigorous response when taking off, merging or passing. AMG 43 offers an AMG-enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo Engine while AMG 63 and AMG 63 S offer a handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo engine.
An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
Standard Torque Vectoring Brake technology provides additional control and precision in turns via targeted rear-wheel braking. If the vehicle's Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) detects understeer while cornering, the system applies the brake to the inside rear wheel, temporarily shifting torque distribution in favor of the outside wheel. This can help the vehicle to gently pivot in compensation, putting it on a line of travel, or vector, better suited to the turn.
Sport tuning of the springs and shock absorbers teams with optimized kinematics and a 15-mm lower ride height to deliver more precise handling response. Sport steering is tuned for even greater precision and feedback. Yet even with its highly agile cornering, ride comfort remains silky, a benefit of the car's long wheelbase and extremely rigid body structure. Available in AMG Line, AMG Line w/Night Package.
Standard LED headlamps are eye-catching by day, and brighten the night more like natural daylight. The available LED Intelligent Light System adapts for curves and vehicles ahead.
The soft top is finely tailored in three colors. Stow it, and a ring of satin aluminum frames the artful cabin. Raise it, and expansive windows keep the cabin feeling bright.
Nine 18-inch and 19-inch wheel designs include five AMG® designs that pair with the aero-aggressive styling of the AMG Line. The Night Package option adds gloss black accents.
From its wide grille and LED headlamps to its wraparound LED taillamps, the C-Class Cabriolet is a summit of style and sportiness that's yours to enjoy in any season and every setting. Top up, its shape is taut and tailored. Top down, the harmony between cockpit and coachwork is undeniable, with a satin chrome beltline wrapping around the cabin. From style to sumptuousness, the C-Class extends the rich heritage of open-air Mercedes-Benz models that continue to set the standard today.
Bold and muscular yet flowing, the standard sport lower bodywork looks as if was shaped as much in the gym as in the wind tunnel. Large mesh air intakes underscore a wide grille with a black diamond-block texture and integrated Star. Chrome details add subtle highlights to the sporty shape.
Engineered from the sky down as a convertible, the C-Class Cabriolet delivers more than breathtaking style and a breeze. Its aerodynamics are class-leading, enhancing stability and providing an uncannily quiet ride. The strategic use of ultrahigh-strength steel and aluminum team up for exceptional rigidity, solidity and durability without the burden of excessive weight.
On a chilly evening, AIRSCARF® can wrap your shoulders in warm air. AIRCAP® quells buffeting for a tranquil ride. Front seats are heated, with ventilation available. Even the climate control can adapt automatically when you lower the top.
The standard 10.25" multimedia screen stays vivid in sunlight. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto are standard. Navigation options include COMAND® with voice control of many cabin features, or a full-featured system on a tiny SD card.

In under 20 seconds, one button hides the 3-layer acoustic fabric soft top beneath a sculpted rear deck. Just as easily, it returns to envelop you in serene comfort, even in winter.
Separate left and right digital temperature controls allow driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system automatically adapts when you lower or raise the soft top. An integrated filtration system helps remove dust, pollen and even odors from the cabin air. And dual solar sensors team with GPS data to adjust for the angle of the sun, helping keep cabin temperature consistent.
A vivid 12.3-inch screen directly in front of the driver offers customizable analog-style and digital displays for instrumentation.

Available driver assists can help make any drive a breeze, changing lanes with a tap of your finger, or slowing for an exit or school zone. Sensors can keep a virtual eye out for danger ahead, even if it's coming from behind.
If an air bag deploys, your car can automatically initiate a call to Mercedes-Benz Emergency Services, transmitting your GPS-determined location and helpful vehicle information on your behalf. Trained experts are on call 24/7 to help summon local emergency responders to your location. You can also press the SOS button in the vehicle anytime you need emergency assistance, or see someone else who does. This vital service is provided for as long as you own the vehicle, no matter who's driving.
With longer life, quicker illumination and beams that approximate daylight even more closely than xenon headlamps, multi-element LED headlamps enhance both vision and visibility during nighttime driving. Bright white LED Daytime Running Lamps and all other front light functions are integrated within the flowing sculpture of the headlamp assemblies, making the design as appealing as it is illuminating. Taillamps feature a distinctive C-shaped LED design plus LED turn signals and brake lamps.
Integrated behind each rear seating position, pop-up roll bars deploy within a third of a second of detecting an impending rollover, to help preserve occupant space.
An advanced system of 10 air bags offers 12-way occupant protection. Standard are dual two-stage front air bags, combined thorax/pelvic bags, and knee air bags for the driver and front passenger, plus side curtain air bags for both seating rows. Side-impact air bags are also standard for each outboard rear seating position.
Arguably our most important passive safety feature, all four 3-point seat belts are equipped with Emergency Tensioning Devices (ETDs) and belt force limiters. If a collision exceeds a preset threshold, ETDs instantly remove slack from the seat belts. Belt force limiters allow a slight amount of give in the seat belts, to reduce the peak seat-belt forces on the occupant.
For a better view of what's behind your vehicle when reversing, a high-resolution camera displays a live view on the central in-dash screen. Steering-dependent active guidelines on the screen can help you back into a parking space, and you can select between wide-angle and even wider 180-degree views.
Greater use of aluminum helps the body shell of the C-Class Cabriolet elevate its overall rigidity, occupant protection and acousting qualities while reducing weight, even with a significant increase in cabin space. Along with high-strength and ultrahigh-strength steel, the front fenders, hood, doors and trunklid are made of aluminum. Strategic reinforcements are made of diecast, extruded and stamped aluminum, as well as heat-treated steel and laser-welded, varying-thickness steel.
