    Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet – Overview

    The three-pointed star’s largest saloon is actually in its seventh generation currently, which was introduced in 2020. However, the marque has confirmed that the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet will not find its way into this latest generation, and 2021 will be the final year for the body style.

    Thus, the current Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet has been given a final update for this model year in the form of a new colour option called Cirrus Silver. There is a choice of two engines: a 4.0-litre biturbo V8 in the Mercedes-Benz S 560 Cabriolet, and the same engine is fettled by AMG for more oomph in the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabriolet.

    Trim levels are easy to understand as well. The Mercedes-Benz S 560 Cabriolet only comes in a single trim, and can be specified with an optional AMG Line Exterior. As for the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabriolet, there are two trim levels available, which are the standard, and the Premium.

  • Exterior

    Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet – Exterior

    Lopping off the roof of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class really accentuates its length, and gives the large soft-top a yacht-like presence on the road. Front lamps feature LED lighting, while the rear ones have OLED tech. What’s more, the front headlights can also be optioned with Swarovski crystals for added pizzazz.

    The Mercedes-Benz S 560 Cabriolet has 10 colours from which to choose for the car’s body, while the roof can come in 4 colours. It rides on standard 19-inch multispoke alloys, with options for 20-inch wheels. There’s also an additional AMG Line Exterior that adds more aggressive body styling to the car like its AMG brother.

    As for the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabriolet, the luxurious roadster rides on standard 20-inch 5-spoke alloys, with other similarly sized options as well. Colour options are similar to the non-AMG variant. The full cream model is obviously more aggressive, with wider intakes in front. Silver trim runs across the lower portion of the side profile, and across the rear diffusers as well. 

    Though both variants have quad tailpipes, the AMG model is much wider, visually, at the rear. The AMG also has a other optional packages as well, like the AMG Night pack that adds black highlights all around, and the AMG Exterior Carbon Fibre pack that trims the same parts in exquisite carbon fibre.

  • Interior

    Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet – Interior

    Although the car is technically a four-seater, the rear seats are best reserved for young children or disfavoured family members. The lack of rear legroom is a natural byproduct of a folding top, unfortunately. Front occupants are lavished with luxuries like 12-way electric seats with memory, heating, ventilation, massage, and even Airscarf that will gently waft warm air on necks during cold evenings. 

    Due to the large doors, egress and ingress can be clumsy in tight areas, and we’ll never not be amused (and impressed) by the graceful soft-close function for the doors. The Mercedes-Benz S 560 Cabriolet gets 2 standard upholstery options, and 7 added-cost options, while there are 3 standard trim options, and 3 other options that will cost extra. 

    As for the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabriolet, upholstery options are the same, but there is an added trim option, which is the carbon fibre/black piano combo. Both variants can opt for a Warmth and Comfort pack that adds heated rear seats, heated arm rests, and heated steering wheel. The AMG model also has 3 optional finishings for the AMG Performance steering wheel.

  • Features

    Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet – Features

    Aside from the aforementioned features like the 12-way seats and neck heating, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet also features 2-zone climate control and LED ambient lighting. The LED headlights have an adaptive function, and there is a surround-view camera too. 

    There are quite a few assistance systems that come as standard, like BLIS with rear cross-traffic assist, park assist, automatic emergency braking, and lane-keep assist, while options in this department are adaptive cruise control, a heads up display, and night vision.

    We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – Mercedes-Benz has one of the best fully integrated infotainment/display systems at the moment. Just like all their premium models today, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet has twin 12.3-inch displays for, well, everything. 

    The one in front of the driver is a customisable instrument display, while the one in the centre serves everyone else. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both compatible, and wireless charging is standard on the car. Aural stimulation comes in the form of a Burmester system with 590 watts and 13 speakers, but if this is not sufficient, there is an option for a Burmester 3D system with 1,190 watts and 24 speakers.

  • Powertrain

    Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet – Powertrain

    The same 4.0-liter biturbo V8 powers both the variants, but oh how different they are. In the Mercedes-Benz S 560 Cabriolet, the plant makes a peak 469 PS in between 5,250-5,500 rpm, and a peak torque of 700 Nm occurs between 2,000-4,000 rpm. This propels the luxo-barge from standstill to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds. Power is sent only to the rear wheels through the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission.

    In the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabriolet, the plant is ‘handcrafted’ and thus no two are alike, in the now familiar fashion of AMG engines. It makes an explosive 611 PS between 5,500-6,000 rpm, and a maximum twist of 900 Nm between 2,750-4,500 rpm. 

    All this means that 0-100 km/h is over in just 3.4 seconds – in a car of over 2 tonnes, that’s just astounding. The mill is paired to the AMG Speedshift MCT 9-speed transmission, and 4MATIC+ all wheel drive system is used to put all that power down.

  • Driving Performance

    Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet – Driving Performance

    With maximum street cred and a fire breathing engine, the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabriolet not only sits at the pinnacle of the range, but maybe even on top of the entire stable of cars belonging to the three-pointed star. It is after all, humoungously powerful and sinfully decadent.

    However, the AMG soft-top is hard. Uncomfortably hard, even, just like the rest of its AMG brethren. Mid-corner bumps will cause the car to hop and skip unnervingly, even with the suspension in its softest setting, and only the smoothest of roads can bring all that power to bear.

    In contrast, the Mercedes-Benz S 560 Cabriolet is supple and poised around the bends, even though it doesn’t weigh all that much less than the full AMG model. Usually, cars with air suspension are a little vague around the corners, but there’s no wallowing here; the car is planted and composed around corners. Don’t expect sportscar-like precision or agility, but it is a highly competent cruiser.

  • Ride Comfort

    Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet – Ride Comfort

    The Mercedes-Benz S 560 Cabriolet comes with AIRMATIC air suspension and adaptive dampers that feature four-wheel automatic leveling to balance the ride, and lower or raise the ride height to compensate for various speeds and different conditions. That’s a lot of words for a system that the occupants of the car will never feel. 

    Simply put, road imperfections simply melt under the car and athe occupants are shielded from all but the worse of roads. As for the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabriolet, it sits on AMG Adaptive Sport Suspension, which is based on the AIRMATIC system. The setup is good, but it is a full AMG model and so comfort, while a priority, is not very high on the list.

  • Fuel Consumption

    Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet – Fuel Economy

    Here are the consumption and emission figures for the two Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolets.
    Mercedes-Benz S 560 Cabriolet | 8.7 l/100km | 199 g/km
    Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabriolet | 10.1 l/100km | 229 g/km

  • Conclusion

    Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet – Conclusion

    The ostentatious model at the top of the range is sinfully decadent in all the ways a cabriolet can be, and there’s really no argument against it – those who get it, will get it. However, the one sitting below it is everything a Mercedes-Benz S-Class should be: stylish, graceful, and filled with the latest technologies. 

    When similarly specced, the Mercedes-Benz S 560 Cabriolet is almost 30% more expensive than the equivalent BMW 8 Series Convertible, which may seem improper and ridiculous. However, the Beemer lacks the opulence and the sense of occasion, not to mention the the waftability, of the Merc. For those who can afford a cars like these, these reasons and not price are the bigger concerns, which makes the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet one of the best cars in this lavish segment.
