Introduction

What Car? says...

It seems big, graceful convertibles are ten-a-penny these days, but few do it quite like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet. Long has it been the archetypal four-seat convertible, with the original 300CE of 1991 having earned itself a reputation for being able to transport four people, top down, in comfort, luxury, and with more than a little panache.

It’s that reputation the current E-Class Cabriolet has to live up to. This drop-top from Mercedes slots in between the smaller C-Class and larger S-Class Cabriolets, and aims to provide a car with greater luxury and space than the former, but without the vast and slightly unwieldy proportions of the latter.

To an extent, therefore, it is in a class of one — after all, while the C-Class has archrivals from BMW and Audi to contend with, neither of those manufacturers fields a soft-top quite like this in the luxury car class. But what’s to stop you just buying one of those smaller convertibles instead? It’s a question many buyers will ask, so read on to see if the E-Class acquits itself well enough to justify its higher price.
