2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabrio Pulls a Good Cop, Bad Cop Appearance

The C-Class Cabrio must have been a little upset with the new E-Class stealing all the spotlight lately, so it decided to prance its lightly camouflaged body around the streets once more.

Mercedes-Ben has been pretty inconsistent with its camouflage for this year's C-Class Cabrio, and if we really needed any more proof, this video is it. Our man with the camera caught two cars in his sight, but even though they were literally only a few feet away from each other, their level of concealment was completely different.

Showing that he knows what he's doing, he quickly focuses on the car in front, the one that's also displaying significantly less camouflage. Still, even though it doesn't come with the crazy zebra pattern that's covering the whole length of the second car, it's enough to hide that rear end - the only real secret left to the C-Class Cabrio, apart from its exact launching date.

We know from previous encounters that the new convertible version of the C-Class will get the wonderful AIRCAP, that simple device that pushes oncoming air up and over the heads of the driver and passengers, allowing the car to be used with the top down in colder weather. In other words, what that means is that the future owners will get to enjoy the main feature of such a car for a greater period of the year, making the C-Class Cabrio less seasonal than other convertibles.

Of course, that doesn't mean it's going to be a practical car - not by a mile. Based on a different set of photos, we've seen that the rear seats appear to be quite small, and the roof folding in the trunk won't help with fitting large suitcases in either.

But when everything is right - the temperature is perfect, the road is clear, the sun is setting, the passenger is who you want him or her to be and the radio is playing one of your favorite songs - the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabrio will seem to have been worth every penny. That's just the way convertibles are.
