2017 Mercedes-Benz S550 Cabriolet



Big, bold, and beautiful.


Say you have a massive pile of cash earmarked for a big, comfortable convertible, but you’re not feeling what Bentley or Rolls-Royce are putting down. Other than the aging BMW 6-series convertible—which, let’s face it, is a little too plebeian—the Mercedes-Benz S-class cabriolet is the only choice.

More Nautical than Nimble

But what a good choice it is. Appropriate to its nameplate, the S-class convertible is the biggest and most luxurious among Mercedes’ 12-deep lineup across five model lines of cabriolets. S63 and S65 AMG variants are on offer, each with more than 500 horsepower, but the standard S550 cabriolet tested here, with a 449-hp twin-turbo V-8 and rear-wheel drive, is the best expression of the S-class ethos. Its lack of sporting pretensions is obvious, even when equipped, as was our test car, with a $5900 Sport package with AMG wheels and a body kit. Instead, the S cabriolet’s flowing lines, larger-than-life proportions, and elegant presence conjure images of a luxury yacht.
