In our current automotive world dominated by crossover SUVs and pickup trucks, true four-place convertibles are becoming obsolete. A majority of open air rides are small sports cars that are primarily designed for two. But not at Mercedes-Benz, which builds virtually every possible configuration of  every vehicle in every segment under its vast portfolio. For instance, if you are enamored of the new compact C Class, there can be a convertible in your future that will seat four adults without sacrificing style, performance or interior comfort.
