2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet and more in Frankfurt
Being at home, Mercedes-Benz takes advantage of the world’s largest auto show to unveil some of its most spectacular upcoming models.

For Mercedes-Benz, the Frankfurt Auto Show is a huge deal. The automaker has its own building with three floors where every model is presented in various trims and forms. Being at home, Mercedes-Benz takes advantage of the world’s largest auto show to unveil some of its most spectacular upcoming models.

That was the case this year with three important unveilings: the S-Class convertible, the C-Class Coupe, and the incredible IAA Concept. 


S-Class convertible

Let’s start with the brand new 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet. Quite simply, it’s a thing of beauty.

Mercedes-Benz has managed to take the classy, sophisticated, and (let’s be honest) sexy look of the S-Class Coupe and translate it into an even sexier soft-top convertible (with a roof that retracts in just 20 seconds). The look truly is breathtaking. Where a convertible will often chop the car in half, Mercedes has managed to enhance the overall look of the S-Class by removing a big chunk of it (the roof). Stunning.

Of course, the look is only half the story. On display at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show was a ramped up version of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet straight from the AMG hallows: an S63 4MATIC Cabriolet featuring a 5.5L V8 biturbo mill with 577 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. All with the option of the wind in your hair while you go from 0-100km/h in just 3.9 seconds. 

Now with a sedan, coupe and cabriolet, Mercedes-Benz feels the S-Class family is complete. And what a family it is. And the addition of the convertible really is the crowning jewel on the already shining lineup that is the S-Class at Mercedes-Benz. Truly these cars are both a pleasure to drive and works of art to behold.

An engineering marvel in terms of both design and technology, the brand new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet features a number of interesting amenities, one being Merc’s AIRSCARF neck-level heating system. This unique heating system means you can enjoy your S-Class cabriolet even after the convertible season is officially “over.” Moreover, Mercedes-Benz promises that this is the quietest convertible you have ever experienced.

The new S-Class also features something called THERMOTRONIC that is a fully automated intelligent climate control system that ensures the ideal temperature is selected and maintained at all times (roof up or down). There’s no need to tell the system if the roof is up or down (or make the adjustments yourself) either, as THERMOTRONIC will figure all that out on its own and make the necessary adjustments.


C-Class Coupe

The C-Class Coupe is stunning, just like the S-Class convertible. Mercedes-Benz had two models in Frankfurt, the C300 and the C 63 AMG. The first gets a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine good for 241 hp while the AMG gets a twin-turbo V8 that pumps out 503 hp.

The sleek profile of the C-Class Coupe is not just for looks, but function as well as the overall drag coefficient is just 0.26.


IAA Concept 

Speaking of drag coefficient, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the IAA Concept in Frankfurt as well. Featuring body panels that can transform and extend, the IAA Concept features a 0.19 drag coefficient, a new record.

Powered by a plug-in hybrid engine, the IAA can travel 66 kilometers without using any fuel.
