2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan has been a stalwart of the Stuttgart lineup and sells around the in exceptionally high numbers impressive considering that is very much a luxury and consequently, not inexpensive.

Years the E-Class and its forebears were available as four-door sedans, station wagons entered the eventually. This all changed Mercedes introduced an E-Class earlier this year and we’ll be able to buy a spiffy new Cabriolet like the one I recently for the first time in Ontario and

Some of this range-juggling can be by the fact that the old CLK coupe and models have disappeared, by the E-Class lineup when the came around for all-new There is also a wagon of the E-Class planned, but there’s no yet on whether this will to Canada (and Mercedes-Benz have no less than SUVs in its range). This make the E-Class the luxury car as far as available body styles go.

For those unfamiliar with the car market, the E-Class sedan against rivals like the BMW 5 and the Audi A6 plus a fair of other products of roughly the size and level of opulence. The competitors for the new Mercedes Cabrio are the BMW 3 series convertible and the cabriolet of the Audi A5, but the company also the open Infiniti G37, 9-3, Lexus IS and Volvo C70 as all in the hunt.

Mercedes-Benz is billing model an all seasons convertible to a number of features — unique to M-B — which look at later. It certainly one of those ragtops you’d be to use in winter due to a drafty top and chilly In fact, thanks to one or two novel it’s virtually a year-round model — especially in parts of Canada lucky to enjoy mild winters.

The styling of the new car generally follows of the coupe and uses some AMG add-ons. The top is of a very fine fabric and when it’s in it’s drum tight and wind and waterproof. It’s and insulated and the glass rear has heating elements. Mercedes me that they did consider a metal top, but decided buyers wouldn’t want to the space it would take up. As it out, the car has generous rear room and plenty of cargo in the trunk. The top is electrically powered and has no to release. It’s also fast to deploy (20-seconds) and it’s down, there is no to impede rear vision. As far as convertible tops go, this is the very best out there. it can be raised or lowered at up to 40 km/h.

Part of the four seasons is a move to keep excessive out of the passenger area by fitting a spoiler above the windshield.

I was very impressed with the of this car. Obviously as a convertible from the word go, very rigid and there’s not the hint of flexing on any surface. In the area of Quebec, some of the are very poor indeed, but the Cabriolet tackled them great refinement. Part of poise should be credited to the Pirelli P-Zero Nero my test cars were with — an excellent for a car like this.

As with all products, there’s an impressive of safety technology on this new and there are one or two items — lane departure warning that are options. Mercedes set standards with its now-defunct CLK but the new car exceeds them.
