Eric's Autos: 2018 Mercedes E400 Cabriolet
When you go to a five-star restaurant, you expect a great steak, but it's surprising when the bill turns out to be reasonable.
The Mercedes E400 cabriolet is like that great steak you thought would cost more than it actually did.
What It Is
The E400 cabriolet is the convertible version of the Mercedes E400 coupe, which is the two-door version of the midsized E400 sedan.
In addition to the two doors and the power soft top, it is also kitted out somewhat differently than the E400 sedan. For example, it comes standard with the twin-turbo V-6 engine that is optional in the E400 four-door.
The rear-wheel-drive E400 cabrio base price is $66,300. With 4Matic all-wheel drive, the price moves up a notch to $68,800.
The cabrio and coupe get almost all of the updates the E400 sedan/wagon received last year with one exception: For the moment, they come with only one engine, the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 that's optional in the sedan/wagon.
Unlike most two-door convertibles, the E400's back seats are not cramped.
