Arriving on forecourts in September, the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet is now available to order from Nationwide Vehicle Contracts in two lines: Sport and AMG Line.
Mercedes Benz C Class Cabriolet
The C-Class Cabriolet offers a choice of 6 engines, all offering powers combined with some surprising fuel efficiencies for such models.
Entry level comes with the C 200 with a 2.0-litre (184 hp) petrol engine, available with either a six-speed manual or 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission, that is capable of 47.1 mpg on the combined cycle. This is followed by the C 300 with the same 2.0-litre engine but with a 245 hp output and available only with the 9G-TRONIC gearbox that is capable of 42.2 mpg.
Finishing off the petrol engine availability is the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Cabriolet that is powered by a powerful 3.0-litre bi-turbo V6 petrol engine producing 367 hp that is capable of 0-62mph in just 4.8 seconds. The C 43 comes with a 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic gearbox as standard, with an adapted shift programme.
There are two diesel engines available with the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet: the 170 hp C 220 d that is available in both rear-wheel and four-wheel drive with a six-speed manual (rear-drive only) or 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic gearbox; and the C 250 d, which produces 204 hp and comes with a 9G-TRONIC gearbox.
