Mercedes-Benz India to launch S-Class and C-Class Cabriolet on Nov 9

Mercedes-Benz C 400 4MATIC Cabriolet

Mercedes-Benz India will be launching two products on November 9th, the S-Class Cabriolet (S500) and the C-Class Cabriolet (C300). With these two, Mercedes will complete 11 of 12 product launches in India for the year 2016.

Both the convertibles share design cues with their coupe siblings, and there’ll be a slight increase in weight, as the rest of the body needs to be strengthened to compensate for the lack of a roof.
On the S500, Mercedes says that the roof can be opened or closed in just 20 seconds at speeds of up to 50 km/h; whereas, it takes 24 seconds to open or close the roof on the C300 at the same speed.

The C-Class Cabriolet is likely to be powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged 4 Cyl petrol engine, and the S-Class Cabriolet might pack a 4.7 litre V8 biturbo petrol engine. 9G-Tronic is expected on both models. While the C-Class Cabriolet will go against Audi A3 Cabriolet, the S-Class Cabriolet won’t have any rival just yet.
