Following the teaser image released a few days ago, the new 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet has finally been unveiled in full glory. According to Mercedes-Benz, the E-Class Cabriolet is the last member of the W213 E-Class family, so you can stop wondering whether there will be another variant of the E-Class.

Based on the E-Class Coupe, the E-Class Cabriolet dons a fabric roof which can either appear or disappear in 20 seconds, and the fully-automatic roof operation can be done at speeds up to 50km/h. Comes in four colour options: black, dark brown, dark blue, or dark red, the multi-layered roof is said to offer proper sound insulation for the convenience of the occupants. With the top down, you need to sacrifice 75 litres of the total 385 litres boot volume because the roof folds into the boot.

Those with their hundred-dollar haircut can also drop the top while driving without the risk of damaging it, thanks to the Aircap draught-stop system. Comprised of a retractable wind deflector at the top edge of the A pillar and a draught stop behind the rear passenger seats’ headrests, it claims to cut down interior turbulence for everyone on board. There’s also the Airscarf neck-level heating, but that’s reserved only for the front occupants. The rear occupants have to chill their necks out.

Powering the E-Class Cabriolet is a range of the engines already offered in the W213 family, which includes a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder in either petrol or diesel, and a 3.0-litre V6 turbo petrol. All engines are paired to a nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic, and for the first time ever the E-Class Cabriolet is available with 4Matic all-wheel drive system.

The new E-Class Cabriolet will be debuting at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, and who knows, it might just make it to the Malaysian market. The Mercedes-Benz coupe lineup here now consist of the SLK (we are sorry, we mean SLC), C-Class Coupe, and the C-Class Cabriolet. Fancy yourselves one of these? Or would you prefer the E-Class Coupe instead?
