Deliveries in United Kingdom will start in September.
The cheapest open-top C-Class you can buy in U.K. is the entry-level C 200 version which will set you back £36,200 OTR. At the other end of the price spectrum we find the range-topping C63 S Edition 1 that carries a starting price of £78,295. The latter will be available only for twelve months and will come with extra tweaks like bespoke 19-inch front & 20-inch rear wheels, matte carbon fiber interior trim, and diamond-stitched nappa leather upholstery.
If you don’t want to go all out but at the same time you don’t want to settle for the base model, in-between the two models there are a lot of other versions. Take for example the automatic-only C 300 (£40,615) which has the same turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine as the C 200, but it develops 245 hp instead of 184. For something with more punch, there’s the Mercedes-AMG C 43 (£50,160) which comes in an auto-only, 4MATIC flavor and is motivated by a biturbo 3.0-liter V6 with 367 hp on tap.
If you would rather have a diesel, there’s a 170-hp C 220d from £38,580, followed by the automatic model at £40,080, and the all-wheel-drive, auto-only version at £41,580. Pay £41,235 and you can drive home the 201-hp C 250d, but this being a convertible, we’d rather go for one of the gasoline engines.
The electrically-operated fabric roof can be had in black, dark blue, dark red, and dark brown colors, with each available as a no-cost option. Even the base Sport trim is generously equipped with AIRSCARF, AIRCAP, reversing camera, Garmin navigation, and heated seats. You also get LED headlights, 17-inch rims, a black interior trim with brushed aluminum, as well as a mirror and memory packages, and keyless start + entry (auto only).
Upgrade to the AMG Line (£1,495) and Mercedes UK will install 18-inch wheels, an AMG-specific body kit, flat-bottomed steering wheel, black headliner, and sporty pedals. This version sits half an inch (15 mm) lower thanks to the sports suspension and can be visually distinguished by a diamond grille with chrome pins for a dash of luxury.
If you are willing to pay more, there’s an optional Driving Assistance Package (£1,695) adding active blind spot assist, active lane-keeping assist, Distronic Plus with steering assist, and other safety kit, but you can only have it with the automatic transmission. A Premium Plus package worth £1,395 includes the latest COMAND Online infotainment system and a 13-speaker Burmester surround sound system.
