Mercedes-Benz has big plans for 2015 and they will be launching as many as 15 vehicles this year. While they have already launched two vehicles in India at the start of the year, the German autogiant will launch two more cars tomorrow in the form of a CLS facelift and E400 Cabriolet. While the E400 will replace the E350 model, the CLS-facelift will be launched in the diesel variant only.  

Talking of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet, the new E400 will be powered by a 3.0 litre, 6-cylinder V6 turbocharged petrol unit that produces a maximum power of 328bhp and a peak torque of 480 Nm. The power is sent to the wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission, which propels the car from 0-100kmph mark in a sub 6-second time.

Comparing it to the current generation model E350 that is sold in the country, it comes with a naturally-aspirated petrol engine derived from the previous-generation E-Class. Mercedes-Benz E-Class E400 will get a fully-electric soft-top that can be opened and closed at speeds upto 40kmph. Apart from all the added feature, the E400 will also come with the latest COMAND interface.

On the other hand, the CLS-Class is a stylish 4-door coupe version of the E-Class. Sold via a CBU rout, the new CLS will be launched in only diesel variant for now i.e. the CLS 250 CDI, which will get the same 2143cc diesel motor as in the E 250 CDI. The unit will be capable of generating 201bhp and 500Nm output. The changes will mostly be cosmetic and will include a front grille borrowed from the A-Class facelift.
