If one car sums up what Mercedes-Benz is all about these days, the E350 Cabriolet is, quite possibly, it. It’s solid, sensible and practical – as a Merc should be – but has a racy side that’s in tune with the more youthful character the brand is keen to promote.
You see, this is a company that now produces everything from a sub-20k hatchback with a 1.5-litre diesel engine to supercar-baiting AMG models that are the “ride” of choice for superstar rappers.
This, the V6 diesel-powered version of the revamped Mercedes E-Class cabriolet, sits pretty much bang in the middle of all that.
Mercedes-Benz’s E-Class range has been given a sleeker look, and in AMG Sport trim the Cabriolet is positively brimming with bling, including an unusual piece of metal trim at the base of the front bumper that looks like nothing so much as a chrome boomerang. It works somehow, and the curved rear haunches (which the Cabriolet and Coupe retain, but which were smoothed out on saloon and estate models) blend in better as part of the more sinuous look.
