Spy footage of the upcoming 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet was recently released, according to a report by gtspirit.com. It seems that the introduction of the last variants of the E-Class is gradually increasing its pace. Industry observers may have had a share in espionage recordings from Mercedes-Benz vehicles in recent weeks. The German luxury vehicle manufacturer is now in the midst of preparations for the market launch of new models.
The bare version of the latest E-Class convertible is expected to see the light of day before the end of the year and will be on the market by next year. It can be brought onto the market after the launch of the E-Class station wagon and the E-Class coupé.
Industry observers weren’t surprised that the latest model of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet has a similar design to the C-Class and S-Class. The E-Class Cabriolet will use the MRA architecture with rear-wheel drive, essentially making it a glorified version of the C-Class Cabriolet. There is also an indication that the E-Class Cabriolet will have a larger interior and storage space compared to the C-Class Cabriolet. Despite its larger size compared to its predecessor, it will be lighter as it will use lighter components.
The new E-Class Cabriolet will be equipped with four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines that are currently used in the E-Class sedan. There is also a great possibility that it will receive AMG treatment that will make some industry watchers tremble with excitement. This suggests that a future variant of the open E-Class may be equipped with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with an output of 600 hp. In the interior, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet may be equipped with the dashboard of the E-Class sedan and has a number of autonomous driving functions.
