From the 220S Ponton cabriolet to the iconic 190SL roadster, Mercedes-Benz has a long history of producing exquisite convertible cars that set pulses racing and capture the public imagination. And the current crop of Mercedes-Benz convertibles continues this proud tradition.
Why choose a Mercedes-Benz convertible car?
Whether you opt for the E-Class Cabriolet with its classic soft-top roof or a hardtop convertible such as the SLK, a sublime open-air driving experience is assured. Where once top-down motoring could be a test of endurance, in the new breed of Mercedes convertible it is as refined as it is relaxing thanks to an array of innovative design features.
Airscarf, for example, is a heating system integrated into the front seat headrests that channels warm air to the head and neck area – so you won’t feel the chill when the roof is down. Similarly, Aircap is a built-in wind deflector that channels the flow of air over and away from the cabin, keeping noise down and you unruffled.
Should the weather take a turn for the worse, the transition from top down to top up is fast and effortless. All of our hardtop convertibles feature the superb vario-roof, which folds up or down at the push of a button in around 16 seconds. When folded away, its clever design still allows for generous boot space.
Likewise, the electric folding soft-top on the E-Class Cabriolet takes just 20 seconds to put up or down and provides excellent thermal and acoustic insulation when raised.
Combine this level of ingenuity and attention to detail with stunning looks, beautifully appointed interiors, agile handling, and powerful yet efficient performance and you have some of the best convertible cars we’ve ever produced.
Given what’s gone before, that is high praise indeed.
