The C-Class coupe has existed in the Mercedes product line for some time now, but it has never had a convertible version. That all changes today as the company unveils its C-Class Cabriolet at the Geneva Motor Show and it's every bit as beautiful as its hard-top sibling. 

The cabriolet will launch in two models: the C300 and the C45 AMG. The C300 will feature a 4-cylinder engine that produces 241-hp and 273 lb-ft of torque that will help it produce 0-60 time of 6.3 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph. The more powerful C45 AMG will have a V6 under the hood and hit 0-60 in 4.7 seconds and can reach an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.

For all-year drop-top comfort, Mercedes will have its Airscarf neck heaters and an Aircap feature that reduces wind turbulence in the rear seats. Optional Airmatic suspension will also be available for increased ride comfort and Mercedes will be bringing over a number of optional semi-autonomous driving technologies such as radar-guided steering assistance, lane keeping assistance, and semi-automated parking. The new convertibles will hit showrooms this summer and will be available in both rear-wheel-drive and 4Matic all-wheel-drive specifications.
