Any Mercedes-Benz vehicle can offer premium luxury, style and elite engineering, but there is nothing that captures the imagination like a cabriolet (which could also be called a convertible). There is now a new edition to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class family with the release this year of a new cabriolet model that seats four passengers. Keep reading to learn more about the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet release date, soft top, technology, and features.
2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet Release Date
The all-new E-Class Cabriolet had its world debut at this year’s Geneva Auto Show. It should be available at new Mercedes-Benz dealerships across the country by the end of 2017. We are estimating that it won’t hit showrooms until third or fourth quarter of the year.
E-Class Cabriolet Soft Top
Based on a design pioneered by the cabriolet model of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class flagship sedan, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet soft top reduces wind noise and is designed to optimize climate control. It takes just 20 seconds to open or close when traveling at speed of up to 30 mph, and comfortably stores itself in a space in the trunk area. The standard soft top is available in dark brown, dark blue, red or black.
Technology and Features on the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet

- PRE-SAFE® reversible belt tensioner on the front seats
