It has been 44 years since Mercedes-Benz launched an open-top luxury four-seater. Now the love affair starts over again with a new member of the S-Class family - the all-new S-Class Cabriolet.
The new S-Class Cabriolet comes with a distinctive, sensual design, combined with the unprecedented luxury and technology of the flagship model.
At the front end, a long, powerful bonnet flows into a striking bumper, which incorporates large air intakes. The centrepiece is a diamond radiator grille featuring a single louvre in silver with chrome inserts. As an option, the LED headlights are encrusted with Swarovski crystals for the indicators and daytime running lights.
From the side, the signature dropping line slopes towards fully retractable side windows and a muscular rear end. With the taut, soft-top closed, the cabrio's profile is almost identical to that of the sleek S-Class coupé.
The fabric roof is a work of art in itself. It can be opened or closed in 20 seconds, and at speeds of up to 37 mph. And an acoustically optimised three-layer lining makes it one of the quietest, most insulated soft-tops ever.
Inside, the luxurious cockpit embraces its passengers with revolutionary climate control, using sensors to automatically maintain temperature levels. The automatic turbulence-reducing system AIRCAP and the
AIRSCARF neck-level heating system offer extra protection from the elements.
Under the surface, the sophisticated body of the S-Class Cabriolet boasts an incredibly rigid, lightweight design. An innovative aluminium bulkhead behind the rear seats reinforces the structure, at the same time supporting the automatically extending roll bars, while the completely new aluminium rear floor increases torsional strength.
And like the S-Class Saloon and coupé, the new Cabriolet is available with a suite of advanced assistance systems to make driving safer and more comfortable.
The only way to discover what the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet is really like is to take a test drive. We would be delighted to arrange this for you (either from the showroom, your office or home).
