New E-Class Cabriolet here in September

The introduction of the new E-Class Cabriolet — which will arrive on to the Irish market in September — has seen Mercedes-Benz carry out the complete renewal of their entire E-Class model range, all within the space of only one year.

Emphasising the company’s determination to establish a strong foothold in virtually every model segment, this fifth and youngest member of the E-Class family sees Mercedes-Benz bring open-top motoring and latest technology to their all-important, mid-range executive market segment.

Said by Mercedes-Benz sales manager in Ireland, Ciaran Allen to be an ‘object of desire’ for all who enjoy open-top motoring, the new Cabriolet adds what he terms ‘that extra element of fun and enjoyment’ to a range that is the backbone of Mercedes-Benz sales, in Ireland and worldwide.

At market launch, a choice of powerful and efficient petrol and diesel engines will power the new Cabriolet, with further engines to be added to the line-up in due course.

Models likely to attract most attention here will be a 1991cc, 4-cylinder, 184hp E200 petrol and a 1950cc, 194hp, 4-cylinder E220d diesel, all Euro 6 emissions compliant and all with 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission. For the first time, a 4MATIC all-wheel drive version will also be available.

Though prices have yet to be determined, and will be announced closer to arrival, it is predicted they will be ‘only moderately above’ current figures.
