In June 1993 the 300 CE-24 Cabriolet was revised common stylistically with the other models of the 124 series and adapted to other model series. The most striking feature of the modified variants presented the redesigned after the S-Class radiator grille In this so-called „integrated radiator“ the much narrower compared to the previous chrome frame was harmonically integrated into the bonnet. the Mercedes star sat as in the S-Class sedans in the hood. Not to be overlooked were the changes to the light units: The front direction indicators had received colorless glass covers, and the taillights had bichromatic covers which were uniformly colored gray white in the area of the indicator and reverse light. The yellow flashing light was thereby generating front and rear via colored light bulbs. Other changes included the bumper, whose protective strips were now painted in the color of the attachments. The flap of the rear bumper had also extended to the wheel cut.
Under this model upgrade, the cabriolet was not only visually updated, but also equipped with new engines which had been introduced in the other body styles of the Middle Class in October 1992nd The 3.2-liter six-cylinder with four-valve technology now also joined in the Cabriolet is the successor of the proven 3.0-liter four-valve engine. Its nominal capacity had remained the same compared to its predecessor, but was / reaches 900 min earlier; the maximum torque was significantly higher and was also shifted to lower speeds. Exhaust and noise emissions could be reduced effectively.
As fundamental innovation also a four-cylinder version of the Cabriolet has now been offered to more than 20,000, – DM was cheaper than its six-cylinder counterpart. The new entry-level model had the 150-hp 2.2-liter four-valve engine, which has been used since its release in October 1992 in the sedan, the station wagon and the Coupé model 124th. Exclusively for export to Italy, Greece and Portugal, the convertible was equipped with the 2.0-liter version of the four-cylinder four-valve engine, which mobilized an output of 136 hp and since October 1992 was used in the export version of the coupe.
All three variants were now equipped with the previously available only surcharge electrohydraulic soft top, which had also received a revised interior fabrics with improved thermal and acoustic insulation.
With the start of sales of the redesigned models entered in June 1993 for the 124 series, a new nomenclature came into effect. Similar to the S-Class and the new C-Class was the middle class now E-Class, and the reference numbers followed a modified system. It was an abbreviation, which documented the class membership, the three-digit number, which was based as before on the engine capacity, prefixed. The „E“ for „injection engine“ could be omitted, since carburettor engines now belonged to the past, and to encrypt the already apparent Karosserievariante by „C“ or „T“ was also omitted. Under the new nomenclature system the Cabriolets were called now E 220 Cabriolet and E 320 Cabriolet; on the nameplate, however, only class and displacement were documented.
