Mercedes-Benz Says S-Class Coupe Cabrio Done After ’21

S-Class Coupe, Cabriolet ending with 2021 model year says Merc

  • Merc’s biggest coupes fading into sunset

  • Don’t worry, they’ll still have six coupes and five convertibles


If you were thinking that having no fewer than seven cars in your lineup badged as coupes, with four of those available as convertibles before counting the SUVs or the two that are only available as convertibles, well, then you might be Mercedes-Benz. And now the automaker has decided it is time to cut pare down the lineup a little bit, dropping its biggest ones after 2021.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class coupe and convertible are the most luxurious two-doors the company offers, and the biggest, but finding buyers for a coupe that large and that expensive (the coupe starts for $158,500 and the convertible for $170k then quickly heading north) can’t be all that easy. S-Class total sales in the US last year totalled 12,528, down 16.4 percent from the year before, and we’d guess that most of the vehicles sold were the S-Class sedan.

So with little fanfare, just a few weeks before the reveal of an all-new S-Class sedan, Mercedes-Benz has listed near the bottom of its 2021 model updates that MY 2021 is the final year of S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet. Will there be a new one based on the new sedan? We haven’t heard the faintest rumour or blurriest spy photo to suggest it.

Farewell, then, to two of the vehicles with the largest ratio of footprint to interior space, luxury grand touring rocketships ready to whisk you silently (or not so silently in the case of the AMG versions) across continents.

And if you want one of these cruisers, then we’d suggest contacting your dealer, because when they’re gone you’ll have to settle for the absolutely pedestrian E-Class or the far too brash AMG GT.
