If you’re looking to rent out a stylish, open-top luxury cruiser for your trip to LA, there are very few options that are as good as the Mercedes-Benz E-450 Cabriolet. Boasting a strong and smooth powertrain and a tranquil interior environment that’s loaded with high-tech features, the Merc E-450 is a perfect example of German design flair and engineering brilliance.
There are multiple reasons why Mercedes E-450 has been one of the company’s most adored models for years now. The classy convertible offers everything you’d expect from a modern luxury sports convertible. Beauty, performance, comfort, refinement – you name it, the E-450 has it.
Let’s discuss what makes the E-450 Cabriolet one of the world’s hottest sports convertibles.
Powertrain and Performance
Pop open that beautifully sculpted hood, and you’ll find a 3.0-liter bi-turbo V6 that generates an impressive 362 hp and 369 lbs-ft of torque. The engine is mated to Mercedes’s latest-generation 9-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. All this power and tech translates into a brisk 0-60 mph acceleration time of 5 seconds flat, and an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph.
The Driving Experience
While the E-450 definitely has the power to hold its own against purpose-built sports car on the track and the drag strip, it was primarily designed to be an open-top grand tourer – and an excellent one at that. This stylish German convertible offers an exceptionally silky and refined driving experience. The power delivery from the engine is linear and smooth, and both upshifts and downshifts are absolutely seamless.
The ride quality is equally as impressive. The E-450 completely irons out moderately-sized bumps and potholes, and a clever suspension setup means there’s very little pitch and roll in the corners.
Like most modern Mercedes, the E-450 features a stunning looking cabin. The driver’s position is superb, and everywhere you look, you see an abundance of premium quality materials, such as real elm wood, brushed aluminum, and leather.
The driver sits behind a multi-function steering wheel and two 12.3-inch screens. The idle of the dashboard is occupied by the exemplary COMAND infotainment unit. The driver can also choose between various dynamic driving modes, including “Eco”, “Comfort”, and “Sport”.
The Final Word
The Mercedes E-450 continues to set the benchmark for what an open-top grand tourer should be. It’s as versatile as it is capable – a true masterpiece of German automotive brilliance.
