Very contemporary interior and absolute luxury. Fine leather, wood trim, two tone finish throughout, and no roof.
My test vehicle was finished in Macchiato beige and Yacht blue leather, dash and doors are in Light brown Sen wood trim. The combination of colors were truly spectacular. Upgraded MBUX with easy navigation through menus and functions.

How does the Mercedes-BEnz E450 4MATIC Cabriolet drive?
I have two perspectives to answer this question:
As a fairly tall, family man, Given it is a convertible, I must say it was rather spacious. Two adults can sit in the rear. It is evident this is not a family car, but in my case it was for a whole week and it was manageable. Cargo space in the trunk was impressive even with the top down.
As a car enthusiast, The car is what future classics are made of. The acceleration is effortless, the styling is second to none and the smiles are endless. Perhaps it’s not in the sports car gene, but given the performance figures it behaves just like one.
The best way to describe it is to share how it really felt – from the first moment of sitting in the car to the end of my test drive, a whole week later. I felt as if I was staying at a trendy South Beach hotel. Partially from the physical space while driving, materials, smell and colors of the car, but largely from the mood the car set, the lifestyle it represents and carefree mentality it had the ability to put me in. It is like being on a vacation.
