Two-tier Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet range kicks off from $123k

Mercedes Benz Australia has finally revealed the latest variation of the E-Class with the all new E-Class Cabriolet.

Equipped with dual 12.3 inch display, 9 speed automatic transmission, 20″ AMG alloy wheels, air suspension, neck heating, heated seats and a soft top that opens and closes in 20 seconds at speeds of up to 50km/h, the new E-Class Cabriolet is not only more luxurious than its predecessor, but also larger with a length of 4826mm (increase of 123mm), width of 1860mm (increase of 74mm), height of 1428mm (increase of 30mm).

‘The passion for extraordinary vehicles, which we share with our customers, is reflected in our new E‑Class Cabriolet in a unique way. It is a car that lets people enjoy comfort and luxury in the open air’

An all new safety system has been developed by Mercedes Benz specifically for the Cabriolet where there is two cartridges behind the rear seats that shoot out to provide a survival space if a roll-over is detected.

October 2017 is when the E-Class Cabriolet will be available in Australia with the option of E300 starting from $123,500 and E400 4Matic from $157,500.
