MONTVALE, N.J., Dec. 15, 2009; The all new 2011E-Class Cabriolet is the latest addition to the successful Mercedes-Benz E-Class line-up. On sale in the U.S. in May of 2010, the open-top two-door model, which replaces the CLK-Class Cabriolet, will be offered in two model variants in the U.S.; the V6-powered E350 Cabriolet (268 hp and 258 lb-ft. of torque) and the V8-powered E550 Cabriolet (382 hp and 391 lb-ft. of torque). New features include AIRCAP® automatic draft-stop system, the modified AIRSCARF® neck-level heating system and the sound-dampening soft top fitted as standard.

The new AIRCAP® automatic draft-stop system greatly reduces turbulence in the interior of the new E-Class Cabriolet, creating a sea of warm air. AIRCAP® consists of two components: a wind deflector that can be extended by around 2.4 inches with a net in the windscreen frame and a draft-stop between the rear seats.

When the standard AIRCAP® is combined with the optional AIRSCARF® system, which is integrated into the backrests of the front seats and provides warm air through outlets in the head restraints, it functions like an invisible scarf warming the occupants' head and neck areas.

Thanks to its sound-dampening soft top, fitted as standard, even the closed E-Class Cabriolet has one of the quietest interiors in the segment for four-seater premium cabriolets with a fabric roof.
