When you want power and class then you need to drive the 2010 Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet. This is Mercedes’ replacement vehicle for the previously hot CLK class.
The Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet made its debut in early 2009 and since then there have been nothing but good reviews. That’s understandable. It’s a remarkable car. Besides class and power it has luxury built into every bolt and screw. Plus, it’s fun to drive.
You get a variety of engine options with the E-Class Cabriolet, which is another reason this is a remarkable vehicle. Just check them out:
- E 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY 150 kW/204 hp
- E 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY 170 kW/231 hp
- E 250 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY 150 kW/204 hp
- E 350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY 215 kW/292 hp
- E 500 285 kW/388 hp
I did say power. And other features are just as impressive. For instance, the acoustic soft top opens in 20 seconds flat and operates at speeds of up to 40 kilometers per hour. That’s almost 25 miles per hour for American readers.
Mercedes also includes AIRCAP automatic draught-stop and the the AIRSCARF neck-level heating system as standard features.
The AIRCAP system is something new and helps to reduce backflow at the rear of the vehicle by increasing the basic pressure and free flow above the interior. This is caused primarily by the draught-stop between the rear seats. At the push of a button you can reduce driving turbulence for everyone riding in the car. The AIRSCARF system is integrated into the front seat back rests and shoots warm air through the head restraints for greater comfort while driving.
Some impressive features help the Cabriolet get better fuel efficiency. Those include:
- On-demand activation of steering and fuel pumps
- Low rolling resistance tires
- Alternator control system
- And certain electrical power requirements of the vehicle itself
- Plus, the Cabriolet’s awesome aerodynamic body style
The Cabriolet’s classic two-door body style and the soft top keep it in the sport class and it’s one of the quietest vehicles on the road. You’ll hardly feel like you are driving.
For safety, you have two rollover bars in the rear. Each has an impressive 35 mm diameter and a tilting cone sensor detects imminent danger to the passengers and activates pre-tensioned pressure springs very quickly. You also get 7 airbags. Both the driver and the front passenger get a front airbag and a side airbag. The driver also has a kneebag and then there are headbags. As an option you can ask for rear sidebags for additional security.
Other options include ATTENTION ASSIST drowsiness detection, PRE-SAFE anticipatory occupant protection and Intelligent Light System.
The 2010 Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet is a luxury sports car with a lot of class, power and fuel efficiency. It’s fun to drive and you’ll fall in love with the road from behind the wheel of this car.
