Mercedes-Benz’ opulent new E-Class cabriolet is slowly hitting dealership lots and pricing information is being released at the same time. The six cylinder E350 Cabriolet will start at $56,850 while the V8 powered E550 cabriolet will come in at $64,880. Having done away with the CLK nomenclature for the newest generation of mid-size Mercedes two-doors, the company is hoping to position the E-Class Cabrio as a more luxurious and dare we say premium alternative to their topless Teutonic rivals, the BMW 3-Series and 6-Series convertibles as well as the Audi A5 and S5 drop-tops. While consumers are likely to cross-shop the cars against one another, there’s little doubt that each vehicle attracts a specific sort of buyer, and Mercedes should have no trouble pushing every E-Class ragtop it can make, especially in the wealthy sunbelt areas, where an open-air Grand Tourer is the perfect way to enjoy the sunny skies.
