Mercedes-Benz Roadster vs Mercedes-Benz Cabriolet

Driving a convertible during the summer months is a must-have. With the wind in your hair and no destination in mind, a Mercedes-Benz convertible will give you everything you’re looking for when you want adventure. A common question among convertible buyers is what the difference between a cabriolet and a roadster is? A cabriolet is a soft-top or drophead coupe with roll up windows, whereas a roadster does not have roll up windows. A roadster has all the characteristics of a normal sedan including wind up windows. Mercedes-Benz has two of the best convertibles: the SL Roadster and the C-Class Cabriolet. If you’re in the market for a luxury convertible, read on to learn more about which one is a better fit for you!

The iconic SL Roadster has captured the heart of driving enthusiasts for generations with excellent performance and desirable features. Aesthetically pleasing, the SL 550’s irresistible style is certainly unique. A 449-hp biturbo V8 is what gives it its performance, wrapped in innovative engineering and custom luxury that’ll make your own heart race. The interior is a model of luxury as well as refinement. With this beauty, you’ll not only get effortless acceleration, but excellent handling doesn’t come at the expense of comfort. Also, its folding hardtop still allows for decent cargo space, making your adventures comfortable. Both the SL 450 and SL 550 models come with a 9G-TRONIC® nine-speed automatic transmission, which provides better shifting transition and quicker acceleration than a six or seven-speed would.
