The new Mercedes-E-class convertible is already in Russia!
At the end of last year, the German concern"Mercedes-Benz" publicly provided information on restyled sedans and E-class wagons, which will be available for sale in a year. But in January this year the company decided to finalize two more body options - it was the Mercedes-E-class (convertible) and the coupe. Such unexpected decision of developers has plunged many into shock, and already now domestic motorists can officially get a restyling cabriolet in Russia. As part of our review, we will find out what details the German engineers and designers have worked on, and we will learn the exact price for the updated "Merin".
When developing the appearance of the designersthe task was to create a more modern and aerodynamic body. As a result of multiple improvements, the Mercedes-Cabriolet received a more sporty bumper, imitating a spoiler at the bottom of the car, a new grille and a headlamp block, which now are now combined. And the last detail has built-in navigation lights on LEDs, so designers managed to create some effect of "four-pricked".
If outwardly the "Mercedes" cabriolet has changed onlyin part, then over the interior of the developers worked on the glory. The main changes are observed in the front part, including the new panel board, which now has only 3 wells. The central console, too, did not go unheeded. The structure of the arrangement of the control elements was slightly modified, which, in turn, positively affected the overall ergonomics of the cabin. The changes have turned out to be successful, and now the restyling Mercedes-cab inside has become more fresh and modern.
How the hinged top works
The main detail that distinguishes a cabriolet fromother types of cars, this, of course, the presence of a folding roof. The novelty is able to fold and lay out its top in 20 seconds, and the speed of the car during this process can reach a mark of up to 40 kilometers per hour (but no more). The entire roof is folded into the trunk, which makes the car's capacity slightly lower (instead of the previous 390 liters in the Mercedes-convertible with an open top, you can put luggage up to 300 liters).
The machine will have a new line of engines,which consists of six gasoline and three turbo-diesel units. Such a variety of choices allows the buyer to buy a convertible to his taste and purse. Gasoline engines have a power range of 184-408 "horses". Diesel units develop power from 170 to 265 horsepower. All 9 engines can be equipped with a mechanical or automatic transmission at seven speeds. And a smart "machine" can temporarily work in a mechanical mode. To do this, the driver needs to use the stalk and change the gears at his own discretion.Cost
The initial price for a new "Mercedes" -convertible model W212 is 1 million 830 thousand rubles. For top-end equipment will have to lay out about two and a half million rubles.
