The upcoming BMW 4-Series Convertible will soon have a rival from Stuttgart. Mercedes-Benz will be introducing a convertible variant of the next generation W205 C-Class to accompany existing sedan, wagon and coupe bodystyles. The cabrio will probably be launched a year after the W205 debuts, which points to a 2015 introduction.
Prototypes of the C-Class Convertible have already been sighted by our European spy photographers sporting a B-pillar-less design. While the car here looks like it’s wearing a hard top, the actual convertible roof will likely be fabric, just like the E-Class Convertible.
The C-Class Convertible is set to be Mercedes-Benz’s most affordable convertible when it comes out, unless of course they decide to make a front-wheel-drive cabrio based on the A-Class platform, which will rival the BMW 2-Series Convertible and the Audi A3 Convertible, both of which have been recently caught testing.
