The Mercedes Benz E Class Cabriolet comes from the ninth generation of the E Class product line- up and offers a range of features complemented by top notch technology, quality and comfort. Based on the latest E Class luxury saloon, the E Class Cabriolet offers a highly sophisticated design, innovative technology, exceptional comfort, and immense driving pleasure.
The Mercedes Benz E Class Cabriolet features top of the line luxury features that sets it apart from the competition. The fully electric fabric top and the improved acoustics of the cabriolet make your ride smooth and noiseless. The fabric top is available in a range of three colour choices, black, dark blue and dark beige, and can be matched to the paint finish to suit personal style.
The E- Class cabriolet, available with a 3.5 litre V6 engine, is mighty powerful and accelerates quickly. The cabriolet is equipped with features like Speed- sensitive power steering, PARKTRONIC with Advanced Parking Guidance, ATTENTION ASSIST, THERMATIC 2- zone automatic climate control with digital display, Tyre pressure loss warning system and Harman Kardon Logic 7 surround sound system.
The Mercedes Benz E Class Cabriolet would compete with the BMW Z4 which was launched last year.
Powertrain & Performance
The newly developed engine technologies in the E- Class are strikingly powerful, yet emit very less CO2 and consume lesser fuel. It is this novel technology that forms the basis for the drive system in the E 350: 4 valves per cylinder, variable intake and exhaust camshaft adjustment, a two- stage intake manifold and a balancer shaft. The powerful V6 motor spews out 272 bhp at 6000 rpm and a peak torque of 355 Nm from 2400 to 5000 rpm.
Dynamic or a more relaxed driving style, be it an open or crowded road, the E- Class Cabriolet's auto transmission ensures the best possible engine power transmission. The seven forward gears on the 7G- TRONIC transmission ensure lower levels of fuel consumption. While overtaking or in situations requiring spontaneous power pulls, individual gears can be skipped.
With the touch of a button, the driver can select the shift programs "C" (Comfort) and "S" (Sport) for the 7G- TRONIC. This transmission also ensures shorter acceleration times and quicker intermediate sprints. The wonder machine can leap from a standstill to 100 km in just 6.9 seconds and can reach a top speed of 250 kmph.
The E- Class Cabriolet has been carved to perform well in both comfortable and sporty driving styles. It comes with a selective damping system through which the suspension gets constantly and variably tuned to suit the road conditions and the driver's driving style.
While stumbling upon weak shocks, the damping force is reduced individually for each wheel while road roar and tyre vibration characteristics are increased. In contrast, when the E-Class Cabriolet comes across more pronounced uneven sections, the system intensifies the damping effect and enhances driving stability. So, there's better comfort and safety.
Build & Styling
The top of the E- Class Cabriolet will probably go up only to turn away the awe-struck eyes fixed on the open car. The smart and graceful open-top profile of the Cabriolet displays a protracted arrow-shaped front and a rising rear that exemplify a look of energetic motion even when the car is standing still. The classic fabric top adds a tone of sporty refinement. It comprises of three layers of weather-resistant material and provides brilliant insulation even under poor weather conditions. Thanks to the improved acoustics, one can enjoy quiet running without minding if the roof is open or close.
A set of newly designed twin headlamps escort the radiator grille that majestically carries the Mercedes emblem in its centre. Speed is there in its blood and even the fully electric fabric top that retracts and opens in just 20 seconds at speeds up to 40 kmph, carries evidence of this agility. A radio remote control built into the key allows the top to be operated from short distances. Available in options of black, dark blue or dark beige, the 3-layer fabric can be matched to the paint finish as per ones choice.
The crazy lines and sense of space that the interiors of this Cabriolet offer can impress literally anybody. The materials used in the upholstery and interior are high- quality and expertly finished. Good aerodynamics is a must for high driving stability, low noise level and very low fuel consumption and the E- Class Cabriolet epitomizes this characteristic. The aerodynamic design and optional AIRCAP system possess the power of taming the air. They make sure occupants are not bothered by turbulence.
When you have company, there can be nothing as pleasurable as a drive in the E-Class Cabriolet which has enough space for four. The comfy individual bucket seats come with standard-fit NECK-PRO head restraints (front seats). The front seats' height and backrest angle can be electrically adjusted.
The automatic belt feeder at the touch of a button on the instrument console straps the front seats with the seat belt taking comfort to an inconceivable level. Adding to this is the rear entry aid. When rear passengers wish to get in or out, the entire front seat is moved forwards and the Memory package puts the seats into the EASY-ENTRY position and back again electrically. Lumbar support and a chamber for extending the seat cushion length ensure perfect adjustment of the seat to the occupants' sporty and orthopaedic needs.
The 12- button multifunction steering wheel in nappa leather and the resourceful instrument console with tyre pressure loss warning system and more prove the efficiency of the Cabriolet. The PARKTRONIC assistance system guides the driver while parking by offering info if a space is adequate, the correct steering angle and the points at which to turn or reverse to park. The 2-zone automatic climate control THERMATIC automatically keeps the temperature constantly at the desired level for the driver and front passenger.
With the E-Class Cabriolet featuring a storage compartment and double cup holder between seats, there's abundant storage space. The backrest can be folded to allow transportation of bulky items with ease. With 12 loudspeakers, including a subwoofer, this 450-Watt Dolby Digital 5.1 system offers world-class musical experience.
The E-Class Cabriolet flaunts safety systems tailored to its design, like roll-over protection meeting high technical standards. The roof frame structure and the A-pillars are highly stable too. The car comes equipped with a system that recognizes driving situations that could result in an accident. The ATTENTION ASSIST, Intelligent Light System, LED tail lights and adaptive brake lights, active bonnet, PRE-SAFE system, anti-lock braking system and airbags ensure safety of passengers.
