Like other Mercedes-Benz models with the '300' designation, the E300 Cabriolet is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine developing 180kW of power and 370Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Standard features include leather-appointed sports seats, heated front seats, LED headlights, the Comand Online infotainment system, air suspension, Aircap draught-stop system and Airscarf neck-level heating, the driving assistance package, a sports exhaust system (E300 only), AMG Line styling, along with 20-inch AMG multispoke alloy wheels.
Headlining the E-Class Cabriolet range is the E400 4Matic ($157,500), powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbo six-cylinder petrol engine producing 245kW of power and 480Nm of torque. Unlike the E300, drive is sent to all four wheels, via the same nine-speed automatic.
Additional specification over the E300 includes a 13-speaker Burmester surround sound system, a head-up display (HUD) with virtual image windscreen projection, and metallic paint.
Full specifications and options details will be released closer to the range's October launch, so stay tuned to CarAdvice for our coverage.
