Mercedes-Benz E550 Cabriolet Review, While there are many other cars have moved to the folding metal hardtops, the “E” uses a traditional three-layer fabric roof which powers quickly with one button. That means a reasonable 11.5 cu.-ft. strain, less space when the roof collapsed loses its rivals. Perhaps the most aesthetically dubious new feature is Benz ‘air cap system, which is essentially an electronically activated spoiler that pops up from the windshield to distract the airflow over the cab. It works more agile than the bulky screens and blockers, which generally are for the rear seats in the competitors’ models but when deployed, looks a little silly, especially in a lighter color.
Maybe it’s a major drawback is that what happens in the development pipe, with some offering the Mercedes E-Class drop-top with his new twin-turbo 4.7L V8 that significantly more power and vastly improved fuel economy makes. The E550 Cabriolet is a great car, and successfully banishes the old CLK from our consciousness. For the lucky ones who buy one, however, will inevitably most of his life as a trophy, seldom topping the speed limit, never reached the limits of the driver or the car it. So the kudos to Mercedes-Benz will make this car much better than it ever needed.
