The top-less C benefits from Air Curtain technology which keeps occupants away from dirt and turbulence.

The first ever Mercedes C Class Cabriolet in the history has been unveiled at 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The elegant convertible 2-door luxury car completes the new C Class lineup.

The C Cabrio is not just a top-less version of the saloon. Mercedes’ designers have eliminated its rear doors and redesigned the rear end to align it with the stunning C Coupe. The horizontal LED taillights improves the aesthetics quite significantly.

The front end is pretty much identical to its sedan sibling save for a new bumper and diamond-pin detailing for the grille. The fabric roof takes a different form than the sedan’s regular hardtop, giving the Cabriolet a completely different appeal.
