The upcoming Mercedes E Class Cabriolet was recently spied undergoing testing. Outfitted in full camouflage, photographers were not able to get close enough to take pictures of the interior.
Scheduled to be unveiled sometime next year, the E Class Cabriolet is expected to follow the lead of the E Class Coupe meaning that this model will likely have a single bar grille, familiar headlights, and dynamic bodywork.
It is expected that the Cabriolet will take the same approach as the sedan by incorporating higher quality materials in addition to modern design. It is also speculated that the upcoming convertible may have a new steering wheel with touch-sensitive control buttons and a digital instrument cluster with not one but rather two 12.3 inch displays.
It is likely that the same engine options found in the E Class sedan will make their way into the E Class cabriolet. This means a range of power plant options ranging from a turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine producing 241 horsepower as well as a full range of diesel power plants ranging in output of 195 horsepower to 258 horsepower.
Mercedes-AMG did not get their hands on the current E Class cabriolet model but that may change since these days, the high-performance arm of Mercedes Benz is applying their handiwork to nearly everything put out. If that is the case, we may see the 3.0 V6 biturbo engine found in the E43 Sedan make its way into the Cabriolet. It may even be joined at some point in the future with a high-performance E63 model having the 4.0 liter biturbo V8 engine producing 550 horsepower.
