Mercedes has revealed the first official pictures of the E-class cabriolet, the fourth variant of the E-class family.

The soft-top four-seater goes on sale in the UK in March and has a powered, fabric, roof that can opened or closed at speeds of up to 25mph.

Mercedes has introduced a new device to the E-class cabrio called Aircap. When deployed the Aircap sits along the top edge of the windscreen and greatly reduces turbulence in the cabin.

The Aircap can be activated at speeds of up to 100mph and has the added advantage of reducing cabin noise when the roof is down.

Boot space in the E-class cabriolet is fractionally down on the coupe at 390 litres. This shrinks a further 90 litres when the roof is down.
