No need for hard sell as soft top joins the E-Class

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - FRONT PAGE -

MERCEDES-BENZ BROKE new ground when it cre­ated the first E-Class cabri­o­let 25 years ago. Now here’s the lat­est it­er­a­tion.

The E-Class fam­ily, which spans £35,020 to £103,440, is now com­plete, with the ad­di­tion of the soft-top model.

It is the fifth ver­sion of the E-Class, a range widely ac­claimed as the best re­al­world car on the planet.

The new model is the most so­phis­ti­cated yet with smart­phone in­te­gra­tion, wire­less charg­ing and a range of as­sis­tance sys­tems.

It has pow­er­ful en­gines and com­fort­able sus­pen­sion sys­tems to en­sure a sporty and lux­u­ri­ous driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. On re­quest the Cabri­o­let can be equipped with an elec­tric draught-stop sys­tem and neck­level heat­ing sys­tem.

For the first time, the Cabri­o­let is also avail­able with 4MATIC all-wheel drive. Prices and launch dates have yet to be an­nounced.

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, with the em­pha­sis on clean lines. A sus­pen­sion 15mm lower than on the Saloon em­pha­sises the sporty char­ac­ter of the Cabri­o­let.
