New spy shots have emerged of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet in the midst of testing. What distinguishes this C-Class Cabriolet from other test mules is that it has been installed with the production-spec body and has ditched much of the cladding used by other prototypes.
At the front, we can see that the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet will look essentially identical to the sedan model. It is from the side and the rear where the rear differences will be. From the side, the C-Class Cabriolet will evidently ditch two of the doors of the sedan and could be slightly shorter than the sedan as a result.
Previously spied test mules have also shown that the C-Class Cabriolet will also make use of taillights similar to those from the S-Class Coupe. Elsewhere, we know that the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet will feature frameless windows as well as the folding soft-top.
It is interesting to note that Mercedes-Benz has never offered a convertible variant of the C-Class. After all, its main rivals, the BMW 3-Series (now the 4-Series) and Audi A5 have been available with folding roofs for many years.
