There is little argument about the fact that convertibles are more fun to drive than traditional sedans and coupes. In the heart of summer, there are few things better than cruising through the city with the wind the music up and the top down. But when the sun-filled afternoon turns to evening, you or your passengers may begin enjoying the ride a little less as that warm air becomes a little cooler.
Sure, you can put the top up, but wouldn’t it be nice to keep the good times rolling into the night? Enter, the Mercedes-Benz AIRSCARF.
What is the AIRSCARF?
The Mercedes-Benz AIRSCARF is a system of adjustable air vents integrated into the head restraints of the seats. When passengers get a little cold, the AIRSCARF allows for direct heating to create a more comfortable ride.

The AIRSCARF’s temperature can be adjusted on three settings to cater to the individual temperature of the passenger. When the top is down, the more direct-to-body heat provides better temperature regulation than the traditional vents.
When is the AIRSCARF necessary?
While the scenario we used to kick off this blog was pretty specific, the AIRSCARF is a great asset when you are with drivers who get a bit of a chill driving with the top down, even when temperatures are fairly warm.
What Mercedes-Benz vehicles include the AIRSCARF?
While the Mercedes-Benz AIRSCARF isn’t the most groundbreaking piece of technology the automaker has unveiled in the past few years, it’s incredibly practical and will be a major asset for convertible owners, especially here in Chicago where the weather can be more than a little volatile.
