Spyshots: 2010 Mercedes E-Klasse Cabrio
Well, here it is, the next generation E-Klasse Cabrio, still undergoing testing. The upcoming retractable softtop E-Klasse will be a bit bigger and more aggressive than the outgoing CLK version.
As you can see, most of the new cabrio is visible, presenting us with a more leaned forward stance that the current generation. Taking its cues from this year's E-Klasse coupe, the cabrio boasts Mercedes' new approach in front grille design, raising the headlights towards the upper edges
At the rear, the new design of the tail lights is clearly visible, extending into the boot lid. Even if they are wearing minor camo, both the headlights and the tail ones will obviously look like the coupe's version of the E-Klasse.
As for the release date, as you can see, the car is as ready as they get. Still, in late May reports surfaced that Mercedes is planning to delay the introduction of both the cabrio and estate versions of the E-Klasse, first scheduled to appear at this year's Frankfurt Auto Show.
Still, with some two long months left until the Frankfurt event and with the cabrio already here, it is more likely that at least the cabrio will make its entrance at the show. Details, including regarding the engines that will power the CLK successor, are likely to surface sooner.
