Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet

Additional Info


Audi and BMW are in the middle of a power war their big, hard-riding so it’d be entirely justifiable for to follow suit with its E-Class cabrio. But, this is very much a Merc — big, and built for people with theoretical hair.

Yep, is Merc doing what good at, and it really does it The ride’s better than else out there, power is (even on the baby engines) and stuffed with the sort of luggjury that’ll appeal to Benz enthusiasts. It’s not the dynamic of things — what the SL is for — but for top-down this is one hell of a smooth

But M-B’s got its eyes on the new, old person, so it’s tipped in its offerings, too. There’s steering correction if you wander out of lane, cameras that pedestrians and oncoming traffic brake for you, and it can even road signs. Most of is optional, but you do get Collision Prevention as standard.

The engines are good too. there’s a 2.1-litre E220CDI fits under the 130g/km (no road tax for the first year), the engine in a higher state of (E250CDI with 201bhp) and a 3.0 V6. Same with the petrols there’s a 181bhp lean-burn 2.0 turbo and a twin-turbo 328bhp 3.0 V6 replaces the old E500 V8.

But acknowledge that this is not destined for Planet Stig, for real people driving on roads, and it’s an incredibly car.

2996cc, 6cyl petrol, 328bhp, 354lb ft 35.8mpg, CO2, 0-62mph in 5.3secs, 1845kg £49,635


Benz for old-school folk. not sporty, but there’s no more convertible for the money.
