Mercedes-Benz Management on the E-Class Cabriolet: "Unique all-year-round comfort"

Dec 15, 2009
"With the new Cabriolet, we are rounding off the introduction of the new E-Class with an extra dose of emotion. It displays the same brand values as all the other models in the series. They are elegant, comfortable, safe and of exceptional quality."
Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars
"With the innovative AIRCAP® system, the modified AIRSCARF® system and the standard-fit acoustic soft top, the new E-Class Cabriolet offers unique all-year-round comfort in the open-top-car segment. The development of AIRCAP® exemplifies the tenacity and the inventive spirit of our engineers and technical experts: convinced of the benefits an automatic draught-stop would bring for our customers, our specialists persevered to find the Mercedes solution – easy to use and always on board."
Dr Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of Management responsible for Group Research and Head of Development, Mercedes-Benz Cars
"Our E-Class model line-up is now better than ever. The Saloon, Estate, Coupé and Cabriolet models share the same genes, yet each one has an individual message for our customers. This mixture is being extremely well received by our customers.. With thehighly appealing and emotionally charged Cabriolet we add another model to our successful E-Class line-up Thanks to the unique AIRCAP® automatic draught-stop our customers can enjoy the Cabriolet season even longer."
Dr Joachim Schmidt, Head of Sales and MarketingMercedes-Benz Cars
"One thing was clear from the very beginning: only a classic fabric soft top can convey a stylistically pure cabriolet feeling. Viewed from the side, therefore, the open-top E-Class impresses with its clear proportions and a flawless cabriolet silhouette. This look is complemented by the powerfully muscular section in the side wall above the rear axle and a slender C-pillar."
