Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet review

£39,674 - £82,301
Published: 26 Jun 2018


What is it like on the inside?

It’s far more accommodating than other convertibles, but it’s still a bit tight in here. Full-size adults will only want to sit in the back seats for short journeys. Headroom isn’t the big issue; it’s the acute angles their knee joints will need to assume to squeeze their legs behind the front seats. Kids will be fine, though.

The boot is similarly compromised. It runs a decent way into the car, but its opening is much narrow than a C-Class Coupe’s in order to swallow the roof. Pack your stuff in squashy bags, rather than cases, and it should still be good for a trip away. If it’s a huge concern, Merc does at least offer two four-seat convertibles that are larger. Much larger in the case of the S-Class Cabriolet.

The rest of the interior is very good, and does a commendable impression of that S-Class. There are digital dials with seemingly infinite colour and design configurations, as well as a central media screen that sits right in your line of vision and doesn’t distract you from the road.

Merc is better than anyone else at this sort of stuff right now, and while the interior may look like a sea of buttons and screens on first impression, the ease with which you can use it all on the move is remarkable.
