Mercedes has completed its overhaul of the E-Class lineup with a new Cabriolet now in dealerships. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet starts at $67,295, an increase of $3,770 from the price of the previous model at launch.
Although it’s more expensive now, it’s still more affordable than the BMW 6 Series convertible, which will cost you at least $87,695.
The new convertible receives a standard 12.3-inch display that we first saw on the E-Class sedan. This unit merges with an optional 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster to form one screen that floats above the dashboard. Also look for new 50/50 folding rear-seat backrests, which allows more space for through-loading.
Options on the E400 include a $2,500 AMG Line package that brings along a more athletic exterior design and a $1,050 Warmth and Comfort package with a heated steering wheel, heated front armrests, and a rapid heating feature for the front seats. Three Premium packages are also available, ranging from $3,250 to $9,350.
All E400 convertibles pack a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 with 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic replaces the previous seven-speed.
