Mercedes-Benz now features on the E-Class Cabriolet convertible a “world first” technology with the AIRCAP system. At the push of a button, a wind deflector with netting rises up around 2.5 in (64 mm) from the top of the windshield and in between the rear headrests to deflect the air and form a “cocoon” of warm air around the vehicle’s occupants. Deployable at speeds up to 100 mph (160 km/h) and usable up to top speed, AIRCAP helps to reduce wind noise and turbulence as well as allowing the convertible to be an all-season car.
