Pretoria - Mercedes-Benz is completing its E-Class family with the new E-Class Cabriolet, it joins the sedan and coupe versions already on sale locally. 

There are three models: namely the E 220 d, standard for the E 300 and E 400 4Matic. For the first time, the Cabriolet is also available with 4MATIC all-wheel drive (E 400 4Matic).

Mercedes says the electronic soft top roof can open and close in 20 seconds, at a maximum speed of 50km/h when travelling. The fabric soft-top is available in the colours dark brown, dark blue, dark red or black. 

And yes, Mercedes will of course offer the E-Class with airscarf: a system that wafts air towards your neck when the roof is down.

When the roof is stowed claimed boot capacity is 385 litres (310 litres when the roof is open). The all-new 50:50 folding rear seat backrests create a through-loading feature in the interior.

The cabriolet rides on a suspension that is 15mm lower than that of the sedan. 

On the engine front, the 2.0-litre diesel engine produces 143kW/400Nm, while the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine in the E 300 makes 180kW/370Nm. The range-topping E 400 4Matic features a forced-induction 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine with 245kW/480Nm.
