The E-Class Convertible won’t get the same bump as its sedan sibling but it won’t be slow by any stretch of the imagination. The twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 has 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque and is good for a 5.1-second run to 60 mph from a standstill.
The Cabriolet gets a few exclusive options that add to the top-down driving experience, the most notable of which is the Airscarf system that blows warm air from around the headrests to keep passengers’ necks warm in cooler weather. Otherwise, the E-Class Cabriolet will get navigation, remote start, dual-zone climate controls, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated seats, and voice controls.
Advanced safety features are available as added-cost options only. The $2,250 Driver Assistance Package brings lane keep assist, blind-spot monitors, and other features to the party, while the $1,290 Parking Assistance Package adds a surround-view camera, rear cross-traffic alerts, and active parking assist.
The E-Class Convertible doesn’t have many direct competitors. The BMW 6 Series Convertible has been discontinued, leaving the 8 Series Convertible as its closest rival. Pricing details haven’t been released yet, but we expect to see a slight increase over the 2019 models’ starting price of $67,300
