“Say no more” The two-door 2019 C300 4Matic Cabriolet…., do I need to say more? As I start to write about this beautiful cabriolet, I realize that almost no words can describe how great and stylish is the C300 Cabriolet 4Matic.
Since the moment I see this C300 parked from far away, then I get close to it, open the door and enter the cabin I am impressed with all the perfection and beauty of this car. The C300 Cabriolet is not the most expensive or luxurious model within the Mercedes Benz line, but there is something on this C Cabriolet that makes you feel you are driving the top line of all Mercedes models, it feels very luxury and expensive.
The convertible soft roof adds a gorgeous classy look to the C300 Cabriolet. Everybody onboard can enjoy the open air just with the push of a button. The new cabriolet system makes it so easy to go back and forward from open to close.
4MATIC – All-wheel Drive
To enhance the power and performance of this C300 model, you have 4MATIC, the AWD four-wheel drive system developed by Mercedes-Benz, designed to increase traction on difficult driving conditions. All-season competence, all-road confidence. 4MATIC helps you to maximize the use of the right precise traction when needed. Instead of having all four tires do the work equally, 4MATIC features a number of advanced, and quick-thinking innovations to give individual power to each wheel as conditions change. 4MATIC all-wheel drive makes the most of the available traction by precisely engaging all four wheels only when necessary.
Starting at $53,850 MSRP, this Cabriolet is not the cheapest one on the market, but it is a Mercedes Benz! a very stylish and luxury one.
