Recently we’ve looked at the body styles available on the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. In this post, we want to focus down on two models that have recently been redesigned for the model year. In this 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe vs Convertible comparison, we are going to explore these two sport and performance-oriented models of the classic Mercedes-Benz E-Class to determine whith one best serves the needs of modern luxury shoppers.
2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe vs Convertible
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class in sedan and wagon form was recently upgraded for the new model year. However, the two-door coupe and convertible body styles are now going to be rocking with upgrades. Both of these models will come in E 400 and E 400 4MATIC® styles, and with a bold biturbo 3.0-liter V-6 engine that offers 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. Adaptive dampers, a low-riding coil spring suspension, and selectable driving modes are standard on both models, while any model of the two-door 2018 E-Class equipped with available 4MATIC® All-Wheel drive can offer even more control on the road*.
Both the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet will also be available with a 12.3 digital gauge cluster that, side-by-side with the standard 12.3-inch COMAND® infotainment display screen can offer a boldly futuristic look. Both of these models should also be available with smartphone connectivity, like Apple CarPlay® and Android™ Auto.
Major Roof Differences
One of the key differences between the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Convertible is clearly the roofline. While the roofline of the coupe is stylish, the cabriolet convertible is retractable to give drivers in temperate climates (or the pleasant spring and fall of the year, in warmer areas) the option to having the wind in their hair on the road.
But because only a limited amount of wind in your hair is ideal, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet will come with technology to deflect portions of the air on the highway. Features like the AIRSCARF® system, which circulates warm air around the neck of drivers and front passengers to maintain ideal temperatures in colder climates, make the 2018 E-Class Cabriolet even more attractive.
