The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet is a stylish and luxurious car whether you're driving it with the top up or down.

The Drive

The latest E-Class Cabriolet rides well, with a set of 18-inch shoes and a comfort-biased suspension that make the car supple rather than sporty. It's a good thing, truly, especially when the car is more suitable for gliding around streets in a stately fashion.

The roof can still be operated on the move with speeds of up to 40km/h and will take 20 seconds to fully open/close


 
That's not to say the car isn't fast. With 211 horses and 350Nm of torque powering the rear wheels, the E250 that we tested here delivers more than enough acceleration at both low and mid-range speeds. As a result, it's extremely capable in both the city and around town. And when the need for speed calls, the 7.5 seconds century sprint timing won't disappoint.

The silky smooth seven-speed automatic transmission operates well with the car, too, offering smooth instead of swift levels of refinement that's higher than some of its peers in its segment. Thus, progress is effortless. Speaking of refinement, the car is relatively quiet on the go. With the roof in place, the car is hushed, with road noise kept well at bay.
Conclusion

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet exudes a kind of confidence that's hard to fault. It looks good, sports meticulous craftsmanship and drives well. But for some reason, it refuses to compete with other go-faster saloons in its segment (perhaps that's what the AMG is for). Still, it's a peach. And for once, you can see where the money's spent.

It's always good to know that the German marque is still capable of making cars that can offer a five-star driving experience.

Although steering wheel is light, its accurate nature makes directional changes easy
