2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet: The Road Is Yours
June 21 2016,
A good sized cabriolet, filled with technology, luxury and convenience with a choice of high performance engines and with outstanding handling is an offering that is provided by very few car manufacturers. The 2016 E-Class provides all these elements, and much more. Available in two variants (E 400 and E 550) this classy cabriolet will take you anywhere you need to go in style and with a healthy dose of sun to boot! Prices start at $71,300.
It is possible to outfit this superb cabriolet with a choice of two engines. The E 400 comes with a 329 hp six cylinder engine and the E 550 is equipped with an 8 cylinder powerplant that is capable of developing 402 hp. Both engines are twin turbo and feature the ECO Start/Stop system that makes waiting at red lights more efficient. Both engines are mated to a 7G-TRONIC PLUS 7-Speed Automatic Transmission. On the chassis side, the AGILITY CONTROL automatically adjusts each shock absorber based on the road surface and driving style. It can instantly firm up the suspension for sharper handling while maintaining a comfortable ride for passengers. Moreover, the Dynamic Handling suspension can modify the electronically controlled shock absorbers with Comfort and Sport settings. Fuel consumption is greatly efficient on both variants. The E 400 gets as low as 10.0 l/100 km while the E 550 can reach 11.7 l/100 km depending on driving conditions.
Outside, the E-Class Cabriolet’s sleek design enables it to boast incredibly good looks, but it also has a very low drag coefficient thanks to its aerodynamic elements. A colour-keyed cover can be discreetly concealed behind the rear seats in style. Add the Sport Package and get a set of beautiful 18'' AMG 5-Twin Spoke Wheels as well as the Sport Brake System. Both variants get standard LED tail lamps, power folding exterior mirrors, partial LED headlamp system, heated windshield washer system, power adjustable heated exterior mirrors, a set of LED license plate lamps and many more distinguished elements.
Inside the luxurious cabin, both variants come fully equipped with THERMATIC automatic climate control, 12-Button Multi-Function Steering Wheel (with shift paddles), the Instrument Cluster with Colour TFT Display, NECK-PRO Headrests and much more. Audiophiles will be delighted thanks to the harman/kardon LOGIC7 sound system that fills the cabin with 610 watts of beautifully balanced audio. Finally, buyers who choose the Intelligent Drive Package will benefit from Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist, BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist, PRE-SAFE Brake (Autonomous emergency braking) and PRE-SAFE PLUS for rear-end collision.
The 2016 E-Class Cabriolet has it all, and is available now at Mercedes-Benz Ottawa.
