The interior of Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet 2017 resembles to the sedan sibling of the model. Everything starting from the information display for driver till the seat adjustment buttons on the door are a carried forward from the sibling. However certain changes are integrated that were necessary for the cabriolet. In lieu to this the model gets inclusions like, AirScarf neck heater, integrated into the head rests. There is one interesting feature, it is for the driver. The feature will on its own start pumping the hot air (connected to climate control system) through vents towards the driver’s hand. There is an option of Premium Package that includes AirCap automatic draft top system and an option to upholster seats with heat-reflecting leather. The latter comes with five color options.
