Mercedes May Lose Its Mind And Turn The GLC Into A Convertible

Rumor / Comments

Hasn't anyone learned from the Murano CrossCabriolet?

We have some weird news from Mercedes-Benz. Michael Kelz, chief engineer for the GLC, CLS and E-Class, says Mercedes would consider turning the GLC Coupe into a convertible. It seems that like Land Rover, Mercedes hasn't heeded the warning from history that was the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet. That car was a huge failure, yet Kelz believes that a rise in popularity of drop-top SUVs has made a GLC Cabriolet viable. "It would be fun, and it's actually not that much of an engineering challenge" he said.

Kelz also said that if Mercedes were to make a GLC Cabriolet, another model from the range would have to be axed. Like the coupe, a convertible GLC would be available in a number of trim levels including a range-topping GLC 43 AMG-Sport with a 362-hp twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine. While the GLC Coupe is a good looking SUV, we still don't think that a convertible SUV is a great idea. We will wait to see how well the Evoque Cabriolet does when it reaches showrooms later this year.
