Climb aboard The 2017 S-Class Cabriolet

Mercedes builds a big convertible worthy of the S-Class name. Climb aboard The 2017 S-Class Cabriolet

Mercedes-Benz, with the introduction of the 2017 S-Class Cabriolet, has at last succeeded at developing an S-Class for every conceivable corner of the market: Grand touring coupe to uber-luxe limousine — even, if we’re willing to run with the new nomenclature system, an SUV in the form of the recently rechristened GLS — Stuttgart’s got you covered.

From its Burmester sound system to road imperfection-erasing Magic Body Control suspension to adaptive drive tech (it’s getting to be within spitting distance of autonomy), the S-Classmates work tirelessly to isolate drivers and occupants from the pavement beneath them — or at least the most aggravating aspects of it.

We now arrive at the new S-Class Cabriolet, the first convertible variant of a Mercedes-Benz luxury flagship since the W111 cabrio went out of production in 1971. Unlike the rest of the lineup, the cabriolet is designed to let a little bit of the world into the leather-swathed and (literally) perfumed sanctum sanctorum that is its cabin, though it goes without saying that it happens on your schedule and on your terms.

Save for the top, there are no big surprises here. Dimensionally, the Cabriolet is identical to the S-Class Coupe, and like the two-door hardtop it comes in three major flavors: The S550 (known as the S500 in the Euro market), Mercedes-AMG S63 and the Mercedes-AMG S65. The first two get turbocharged V8s (4.7-liters and 5.5-liters, respectively), while the last gets the range-topping 6.0-liter V12.

The S550 comes with a nine-speed automatic; the Affalterbach cars are equipped with the familiar AMG SpeedShift seven-speed auto, which trades its torque converter for a wet clutch, plus mandatory 4Matic all-wheel drive.

When you do decide to lower the three-layer acoustic soft top (in 20 seconds and at speeds of up to 37 mph), there are familiar features like Airscarf to keep your precious neck warm, plus Aircap, a sort of windshield-mounted extendable foil that diverts air around the cabin at speed.
It destroys the elegant lines of the car when deployed — which is to say that it looks stupid — but it means you hold can comfortable conversations while driving at 80 mph. This is still an S-Class, after all.
