YOU only live once! The Mercedes C 250 drop top drive
Yes, we do believe we only live once and so we should live it well and this Mercedes C250 cabrio is all about living well. Yes, you could buy an economical high specification Mercedes C350 hybrid for less money or you could buy a larger Mercedes E-Class for a little more money, but this topless 4-seat Benz (yes 4 adults can fit in nicely) makes a statement.
The other German car brands do not have a rival in their Malaysian portfolio and so it makes a lot of sense to just visit your nearest Mercedes Benz dealer to buy this drop top Benz.
This is the easiest car review that we have done in a long time. Easy because we do not need to think a lot before the start of our review as the pictures presented is 88% of this review. Yes, you buy this car just on its looks and the ability to have all other road users looking at you on your drive every single time you get behind the wheel.
Top down or top up, this is a good looking Benz and with NO real competitor to challenge its functional beauty, you just need to wonder if RM388,888.00 for a brand new super stylish car is what you need in your garage.
BMW and Audi produce very sexy and functional 4 seat cabrios, but their Malaysian offices do not have them in their product lineup as Malaysians are not BIG cabrio buyers. We on the other hand love cabrios and we personally own 2 classic cabrios. One German and one Japanese.
This new C-Class Cabriolet is authentic, powerful and vibrant with a Cd figure of 0.28. The soft top can be opened and closed in 20 seconds, and at speeds of up to 50 km/h. After opening, it folds down quietly and precisely and is stored in the soft-top compartment in the boot.
The drive like any other Benz is serene and sensuous and the comfort levels very good. Safety like all other Daimler products is very high and all that is left is for your to visit a Mercedes Benz showroom and take this C 250 for a test drive….top down of course.
