2016 Mercedes C-Class Convertible Spied in the Snow

The upcoming Mercedes-Benz C-Class convertible has been spied cold weather testing.

Expected to make its debut later this year as a 2016 model, the C-Class convertible will likely share powerplants with its sedan counterpart with similar styling and options. That means the drop-top C-Class will come standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. There will also be a 3.0-liter V6 option with 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque.

The C-Class convertible will make its debut after the coupe model bows at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Built on the German automaker’s Modular Rear Architecture (MRA) platform, the C-Class convertible is expected to be the lightest in its class thanks to being largely built from aluminum and high-strength steel.
