2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabrio Stars in Geneva
Mercedes-Benz will be bringing a number of new faces to the Geneva Motor Show, but the most notable will be the first appearance in production form of the new 2018 E-Class Cabriolet. We had an early first encounter with a prototype version of this stylish 4-seat convertible last month, noting that it will transition from being the oldest to the newest drop-top in the automaker’s lineup. Soon, we’ll have a chance to see it without any camo-wrap cover up.
Benefitting from all of the mechanical and technological updates of the latest W123-generation E-Class platform, this new open variant promises to match its outstanding style with equally impressive performance, efficiency and safety, whether top up or top down. Due here in E400 form, and backing its 329-horsepower/3.0-liter twin-turbo with a 9-speed automatic, the car will be available in rear- and all-wheel drive configurations.
Also at Geneva, Mercedes-AMG plans to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of its in-house performance-focused operation by unveiling a new “alternative-drive” concept car. Four more Mercedes-AMG production models also are set for their public debut as well including the new Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon, the AMG GT C Roadster ‘Edition 50,’ the C63 S Cabriolet ‘Ocean Blue Edition’ and AMG Performance Studio Package-equipped C43 Coupe dubbed the “Night Edition” in Europe. Finally, the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet will take its turn in the spotlight, although this an ultra-lux limited-edition version of the G-Class is not expected to make it to the U.S.
