There are two models of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet for you to choose from, and this page will aim to help you make that choice. It can be hard to pick a trim level, but we have the information that you need to make an informed decision. You can find luxury Mercedes-Benz sedans here at Mercedes-Benz of Arrowhead in Peoria, AZ.
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz C 300 Cabriolet is the base trim level. It has a starting MSRP of $54,700. Both trim levels have the same engine, a 2 L inline-4 turbocharged engine with 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. As for acceleration, they have nearly identical ratings. This model can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds, which makes it just a little faster than the other model. Ultimately, though, you won’t notice a major difference in performance when it comes to merging onto the highway, daily commutes, and maneuverability. Where you might notice a difference is driving in poor weather conditions. This is a rear-wheel-drive model, which prioritizes performance over traction. It’s great for drivers who like to show off and don’t plan on driving in bad road conditions.
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz C 300 4MATIC Cabriolet is the higher trim level option because it adds 4MATIC all-wheel drive. This model has a starting MSRP of $56,700. The main difference between these models is the drive configuration. With 4MATIC all-wheel drive, you gain more traction and stability. This is important for anyone who needs a higher level of confidence in their vehicle, especially if you drive through rain, snow, or ice. There is a slight compromise to be had though. While you gain safety and stability, the acceleration time does fall by a tenth of a second, hardly something that you will notice except for bragging rights. The fuel economy is also down one mile-per-gallon in the all-wheel-drive model, as all-wheel drive does take more fuel to operate. However, one mile per gallon is a small price to pay.
