Stuttgart Have Done It Again: Introducing The E Class Cabriolet

    Posted by Ben Davidson about 1 years ago
    Over in Stuttgart the clever people at Mercedes-Benz have finished tinkering on their latest baby.  The fifth and youngest member of the Mercedes E Class family is the new E Class Cabriolet.

    This is a four seater german panther with a classic fabric soft top.  It combines puristic, sensuous design with unbeatable comfort for up to four people.  Mercedes have really pushed their on board tech by including comprehensive smartphone integration with a wireless charging and key function, a widescreen cockpit and the latest assistance systems.

    As expected from the manufacturer you will see powerful engines and comfortable suspension systems to help ensure a sporty and luxurious driving experience. On request the Cabriolet can be equipped with the AIRCAP electric draught-stop system and the AIRSCARF neck-level heating system to enhance comfort when driving with the roof down. For the first time, the Cabriolet is also available with 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

    The whole of the E Class family has been renewed over the space of a year.  Although we didn’t think there was much wrong with the old models, check out this awesome example at Xtreme Motors Ltd.  However a company spokesman said of the new Cabriolet “The passion for extraordinary vehicles, which we share with our customers, is reflected in our new E-Class Cabriolet in a unique way. It is a car that lets people enjoy comfort and luxury in the open air.”

    When the soft top is up, the E-Class Cabriolet has a silhouette similar to that of the E-Class Coupé. The close ties between the two models are apparent in their shared design language, with the emphasis on surfaces with clean lines.

    A striking front section with a low-positioned diamond radiator grille and centrally located star, LED High Performance headlamps (or optional high-resolution MULTIBEAM LED headlamps), a drawn-out bonnet with power domes and fully retractable side windows underline the dynamic looks of the Cabriolet.  The tail lights resemble the glow given off by a jet engine. As a new feature, the tail lights also put on a special show for the driver when they approach or leave the car.


    A visual entity comprising anodised, polished aluminium (AMG Line in matt aluminium) is created by the trim frame on the A-pillar and front windscreen along with the shoulder line trim strip and a wide trim finish that surrounds the soft-top compartment. The third brake light is integrated into this frame.

    Suspension that is 15 millimetres lower than that of the Saloon emphasises the sporty character of the E-Class Cabriolet. The car thus demonstrates its sporty credentials even with the standard 17-inch tyres.

    The Mercedes Benz E Class cab is going to look super cool when it hits the streets of America and with a bigger, heftier body than some of the other European brands, we are certain this car is going to be an instant hit with the celebrity and high net worth elite.  So keep your eyes peeled at your local dealership and give it a whirl.   We think this is a perfect family car for the summer, or a super statement for an executive wanting to create a punch.
