The refreshed Mercedes E-Class Convertible has been spied covered up in the cold.
We've known for a long time now that the Mercedes-Benz E-Class series is getting a facelift. The first big tell happened over a year ago, when we got our first look at the updated E-Class Sedan filling up for fuel. We've also seen spy shots of the facelifted E-Class Coupe and E-Class Wagon being put through their paces.
And now Mercedes has been caught testing the upcoming E-Class Convertible facelift, which was spied covered up in the cold. The camouflaged prototype was spied parked up while the testers were on their lunch break, allowing our spies to snap some close-up photos of the upcoming luxury convertible.
The E-Class is disguised with a similar amount of camouflage as previous prototype sightings. Beneath the camouflage appears to be a slimmer set of headlights, a new front bumper, and redesigned taillights.
Our spies didn't get a look inside the interior, which was covered up. However, previous spy shots have shown the E-Class facelift's cabin will be updated with a redesigned steering wheel, a new touchpad, and most likely the latest version of Mercedes' MBUX infotainment system. Engine options will likely carry over, meaning we can expect the updated E-Class range to be offered with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 241 hp and a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 with 329 hp on tap.
We'll have to wait until the official reveal for powertrain details to be confirmed, however. The current-generation Mercedes E-Class has been on sale since 2016, so the time seems right for a mid-cycle refresh.
Since our first look at the E-Class sedan facelift was over a year ago, there's a good chance it will debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show in March, followed by the Coupe and Convertible later this year. Expect the E-Class Convertible facelift to get a price increase over the current model, which starts at $67,300.
