Report: Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet Coming in 2011


With recent reports that Mercedes is planning a C-Class Coupe, it's no surprise to learn that a C-Class Cabriolet is also on the way. The car is expected as a 2011 model, meaning it will debut some time this year. The E-Class Cabriolet (pictured above) was recently unveiled at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show.

Mercedes plans to use this new model, along with its coupe sibling, to win over potential BMW 1 Series and 3 Series buyers. To compete with the BMW offerings, the Mercs will be offered with the choice of a direct-injection 3.5-liter V6, or a smaller displacement engine, combined with twin-turbochargers. With typical Mercedes luxury, this model will be attainable to 135i buyers and atractive enough to 335i buyers.

Like the E-Class convertible, the drop-top C-Class will also use a fabric roof to keep the weight gain to a minimum.

In addition, the source of the news, InsideLine, also suggest that Mercedes' new twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 is a likely candidate for an AMG model.
