For those who believe driving is a sport that's always in season.
Starting at: $60,200*MSRP
With a drag coefficient as low as 0.29, the E-Class Cabriolets slip through the wind virtually unnoticed. Yet their dramatically new design commands attention, from the sweeping headlamps all the way to the sleek tail. A color-keyed cover with domed fairings behind each rear seat conceal the lowered soft top with seamless style.
For four seasons.
Exquisitely crafted from three layers nearly a full inch thick, the rich fabric power soft top is designed to provide coupe-like silence in the cabin. Large windows, precise tailoring and a choice of four colors deliver sleek style with the top up. In just 20 seconds it vanishes into the trunk, leaving a generous 8.8 cu ft of cargo space.
Embracing support. Elegant style.
True grand-touring convertibles, the E-Class Cabriolets extend their gracious refinement to all four passengers. Rich leather in a wide new array of colors is exactingly double-stitched and hand-fitted to each of the four individually contoured seats. Hand-polished Burl Walnut or Black Ash wood trim is liberally applied throughout the cabin.
Forever in the moment. With an eye on tomorrow.
Two advanced Direct Injection engines, a 3.5L V-6 in the E350 and a 4.6L biturbo V-8 in the E550, can fine-tune their fuel and spark within a millisecond. Quicker, leaner and cleaner, they create a torrent of power and torque with only a trickle of emissions. A new ECO Start/Stop system saves fuel with automatic engine shutoff at stoplights.
Seven sporty speeds, fingertip close.
The advanced 7-speed automatic transmission is not just responsive, it's adaptive, timing its shift points to your driving style. A new electronic selector and sporty shift paddles let you take charge of gearshifts without taking a hand from the steering wheel. And the available Sport Package adds a dedicated Manual mode.
Smooth as silk, with a feel for the road.
The AGILITY CONTROL suspension on the E350 Cabriolet instantly recalibrates to the road surface, for an ideal balance of control and composure in every situation. On the E550 Cabriolet, a sport-tuned Dynamic Handling suspension lets you alter the damping rates, accelerator response and shift points with the touch of a button.
Brakes with confidence, and added convenience.
Lift off the gas quickly and Predictive Brake Priming pre-charges the brakes for more immediate response. In the rain, Automatic Brake Drying periodically sweeps away water build-up. Hill-Start Assist helps prevent rollback on uphill starts. And a brake HOLD feature can make stop-and-go traffic more comfortable.
Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake maintenance, and tire and road conditions.
It watches the road.
It watches the driver.
The E-Class legacy of safety leadership looks out for your future with breakthroughs like PRE-SAFE®. Its Driver Assistance Package enhances the present: Active Lane Keeping Assist. Active Blind Spot Assist. And the stop-and-go ease of DISTRONIC PLUS® cruise control with new Steering Assist, Cross-Traffic Assist and Pedestrian Recognition.
Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and must be avoided. Lane Keeping Assist may be insufficient to alert a fatigued or distracted driver of lane drift and cannot be relied on to avoid an accident or serious injury.
Blind Spot Assist may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching vehicles. It should not be used as a sole substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions.
DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not react to stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and lane layout of the road or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver´s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the DISTRONIC Proximity Warning System before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. After braking the car for stopped traffic ahead, system resumes automatically only if traffic pauses for less than 3 seconds.
Reaches far and wide. Brings it all home.
E-Class technology works like a natural extension of your thinking. The COMAND® system places audio, available navigation and countless features close at hand, with an elegant central controller and a vivid 7-inch display. For your listening pleasure, Bluetooth® audio streaming, a USB input and a digital Media Interface are all standard.
While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system´s audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area.
Catches the breeze. Cheats the wind.
The exclusive AIRCAP® system virtually eliminates drafts during top-down driving, with a wind deflector above the windshield and a transparent power screen between the rear head restraints. The available AIRSCARF® neck-level heating system provides warmed air through adjustable vents beneath each front head restraint, like a virtual scarf.
