The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class cabriolet initially comes with a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines: 2.0 litre fours and 3.0 litre V6s.

Its wheelbase is 113 mm longer than its predecessor, and it’s 31 mm taller, which means more legroom for rear seat passengers and a little more headroom, though the seatbacks themselves are vertical,, so not very comfortable. However, those seatbacks do fold down 50/50, allowing through-loads for things like water skis up to 1,900mm long.

The trunk itself takes 385 litres, or 310 litres with the top down. The box that holds the top can be lowered into place with the top up so you know how much space you’ll have to play with if you lower the top half way through a journey. The design includes hollowed-out trim behind the rear wheelarches to accommodate golf bags up to 1,370mm wide.

All new E-Class cabrios for the UK come with an ‘air cap’, which consists of a deflector that rises over the top screen rail and a diffuser grating that comes up between the rear pair of head restraints. While this doesn’t do a lot for the driver and front seat passenger it will be welcomed by the kids in the back seats who no longer have to contend with hurricane-like winds and flies in their teeth. They won’t get drenched with screenwash either because this hits the screen on the downstrokes of the wipers rather than the upstrokes.
