Mercedes E Class convertible







A true E class convertible, once again. The previous models were more based on the C class, at an E Class price.

Like I said before, I think the new E class coupe looks great. This should be quite a stunning car in person.

Old fartish and hopefully not a clunker...

A rag top....on a no doubt $60k+ car? In 2010? From a company that makes great convertable hard tops? Seriously?

It's only ok for the price. I would expect more. I thought this WAS based on the C Class still.

That dash is horrible!! It looks like it belongs in an '80's econobox! I like the seats...This car cost's HOW much?

agreed, but it's more like a rag top on a no doubt $60k car with big v8 that cannot out-perform hardtop competitors with v6s

The C Class and the E Class actually share their platform, so the E Class Coupe and Convertible both have a lot in common with the C Class as well as they do with the E Class.

I guess when it comes to engines, comfort and equipment, it's closer to the E Class...

1)The coupe looks hoorid in person
2)The chrome on the a-pillar is just weird especially with the top up

Lighter, less expensive, just as quiet, takes up less space leading to more trunk space.

I don't see a problem with it.

I like it a lot. The S5 cabrio looks much better IMO, but they are two very different cars and this will appeal to a lot of people. And this will be available with a V8, which I prefer. For those who have experienced both hard and soft top convertibles, most prefer a fabric top. The BMW 335 has absolutely zero trunk space with the top retracted and the SL is an example of the fat-mom hips that results from having to accommodate the roof panels and mechanism. The multiple cut-lines of a hard top convertible aren't very attractive either. Perhaps that's why most $100k+ luxury cars still have multi-layer fabric convertible tops.

The E -Class coupe and convertible ARE based on the C class.

they're calling it the E class, but it's still heavily based on the C class platform. it's smaller than the E sedan too. i think this convertible is better looking than the Coupe itself! i think the new roofline and the smaller side windows without the divider, make the car's lines work better. the canvas roof is a nice, elegant touch. i think hardtop convertibles are over-rated. a tight, multilayered canvas roof is an expensive looking touch. that dash is horrid though. too angular and cheap looking.

I like convertible cars very much! And I have a hobby to change one car to another and I go from one class to higher. Well we accustom to the best!

Looks OK top down. Not so much with top up. Decent car if available at a Sebring price. Big Dissappointment at an E-class price. (Even the 30k Sebring has a hard top!) Apparently Mercedes didn't learn much from Chrysler. Too bad!

The styling of this thing is 3rd grade.
