Mercedes-Benz is currently working hard on the upcoming C-Class Cabriolet as the vehicle was spotted testing. According to inside sources, the new C-Class Cabriolet will make its debut next year and the car is expected to arrive just in time for the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Set to take on other German vehicles such as the BMW 4-Series Convertible and the Audi A5 Cabriolet, the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet will receive a soft-top and almost the same engines found on the sedan version. This means that we will find the 2.0-liter petrol engine with 184 hp, but also the bigger 3.0-liter six-cylinder petrol engine that generates 333 hp (245 kW).
A hybrid version of the C-Class Cabriolet is also rumored this model is expected to receive a four-cylinder diesel engine as well as an electric motor and a total output of 231 hp. We could also see the popular 2.2-liter diesel engine that produces 170 hp as well as the smaller 1.6-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 156 hp.
What’s more interesting is that the C-Class Cabriolet lineup will receive an AMG version, powered by the same 4.0-liter biturbo V8 found on the Mercedes-AMG C63 and C63 S models.
Just like the sedan and estate models, the AMG version of the C-Class Cabriolet will arrive with 476 hp (350 kW) and 650 Nm of torque, while an S version will get 510 hp (375 kW) and 700 Nm of torque.
