Australian car enthusiasts looking for an open-air driving experience can rejoice as Mercedes-Benz Australia has opened pre-orders for the CLE 300 4Matic Cabriolet.

Following the introduction of the CLE Coupe, which replaces both C-Class and E-Class coupe options, this convertible variant expands the CLE lineup Down Under.

However, get ready to shell out a hefty sum for this luxurious pleasure. The starting price for the CLE 300 4Matic Cabriolet is a significant AUD 135,900, which works out to roughly USD 90,334.

This is a substantial jump compared to US pricing, where the base CLE 300 starts at USD 64,300 and even the higher-powered CLE 450 4Matic Cabriolet begins at USD 73,850.

It’s important to remember that this Australian price is the manufacturer’s recommended price including GST and Luxury Car Tax (LCT), but excludes on-road costs like registration, stamp duty, and compulsory third-party (CTP) insurance.

This open-air luxury car for up to four passengers is packed with features designed to raise every driver. A technologically advanced soft top retracts in a mere 20 seconds, even at highway speeds, allowing you to bask in the sunshine at a moment’s notice.

Heated seats with a special sun-reflecting coating ensure year-round comfort, even on the hottest days. The spacious interior, larger than the outgoing C-Class Cabriolet, offers easy ingress and egress for all passengers.

Need to haul extra cargo? The 60/40 split-folding rear seats provide additional versatility. Technology takes center stage with a large, tilting touchscreen infotainment system that puts a world of connectivity and entertainment at your fingertips.

Advanced driver-assistance features add another layer of peace of mind. But the CLE 300 Cabriolet isn’t all about comfort and convenience.

Under the hood lies a powerful turbocharged engine with a mild hybrid boost, delivering an exhilarating performance that complements the open-air driving experience. Stepping inside the Mercedes-Benz CLE 300 reveals a driver-focused environment.

The standard AMG Line interior bolsters a sporty feel, while a Burmester sound system with 17 speakers delivers immersive audio.

Tech enthusiasts will appreciate the MBUX system featuring navigation with augmented reality, a head-up display for keeping your eyes on the road, and wireless smartphone integration for seamless connectivity.

Comfort is not forgotten, with heated front seats with memory settings, dual-zone climate control, and a suite of parking assistance features with a surround-view camera.

Safety remains a priority, with ten airbags, various driver-assistance systems like lane keeping and blind spot assist, and automatic emergency braking. Even the headlights get a technological upgrade with a standard Digital Light package.
