As can be expected, the design of the car looks very similar to the E-Class sedan, save for the soft roof and the rear end which appears to have a revised decklid and a new spoiler.
The convertible will be the fourth version of the E-Class to launch after the sedan, wagon and coupe. So far, Mercedes has only officially revealed the sedan, so the debut of the convertible is at least one year away.
Engine options should stay the same as the other cars, which means the base engine will likely by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
A plug-in hybrid version of the convertible is also expected, while a high-performance AMG convertible is not likely.
