Mercedes hopes that the new S-Class cabriolet will carry on a rich tradition of luxury models that date back to the 1920s. Expect the S-Class cabriolet to mimic the S-Class coupe in terms of powertrain offerings but equipped with a soft top that will retract in about seven seconds. The new S-Class cabriolet will also be the first luxury four-seater convertible since 1971.

“After 44 years we can again offer friends of our company an open variant of the S‑Class. The new S-Class Cabriolet symbolizes our passion for individual and timelessly exclusive mobility, which we share with our customers”, said Ola Källenius, Board Member of Daimler AG, Mercedes-Benz Cars Sales.
