You probably have seen your fair share of spy shots with the C-Class Convertible and now that the coupe is out and about, it's fairly easy to imagine how the open-top version will look like. Although earlier reports indicated a Frankfurt reveal in mid-September, that's unlikely to happen now as Mercedes-Benz probably isn't willing to share the S-Class Convertible's spotlight with another roofless car.

 

This means a more probable reveal will occur in March next year at the Geneva Motor Show and obviously the car will eschew the coupe's fixed metal roof in favor of an electrically retractable fabric top. It is codenamed A205 and just like all the other convertibles with the three-pointed star it will get the AIRSCARF (neck-level heating) and AIRCAP (air deflector) systems.

If you haven't heard, rumors say the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet will actually be cheaper than the upcoming SLK facelift set to adopt the SLC moniker. Roughly six months after the standard versions will be out, the hot-flavored AMG derivative will join the range with the twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter sourced from the other three body styles.
