On the C-Class Cabriolet’s win, he added: “The Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet sets a new benchmark in the convertible class, with its luxurious cabin, superb refinement and stylish looks. It drives well, too, and its efficient range of engines means there’s no need to sacrifice fuel economy and emissions in this desirable drop-top.”

We introduced the C-Class Cabriolet last year, and it’s already proving to be a big hit with customers thanks to its wide choice of engines and stylish looks.”
