The great thing about waiting a few years is you save a lot. For example, this 2012 Mercedes-Benz E350 Cabriolet might be available now for tens of thousands $$$$$ less than when it was new, but it's still so modern that you get all the great luxury features you look for in a brand new droptop from a premium marque. A Mercedes is a beautiful thing, especially if you can get one that's so young that it's still in the style of the ones the dealer is selling new today. This very modern design has a great sleek profile that made these an instant hit when they came on the market. In fact, the tight-fitting power folding roof is so well integrated into the design that this one carries a similar profile to the coupe. But not all E350s are created equal. This one was built with an eye for good color coordination. The deep luster of the multi-layer factory white combined with the crispness of the black top give this sports convertible the same timeless elegance as a well-fitted tuxedo. Plus, nice options like the AMG wheels add plenty of sporty feelings to this sophistication. You expect quality and luxury from a Mercedes, and that is reinforced the moment you open the door. The condition of the beige leather lets you know how carefully this car has been kept. The seats look like you might be the first owner, and the zero sun fading tells you it never was left in the elements with the insulated soft top down. The moment you sit behind the multi-function steering wheel you feel how the power buckets have been engineered for all-day comfort. There's plenty of coddling luxury, including power windows, power locks, keyless entry, theft alarm, heated seats, cruise control, and dual zone automatic climate control. All of this is set against panels that feature leather and burl walnut trim for the ultimate in luxurious surroundings. But not only does this future classic look amazing, but also you get plenty of modern safety, too, with dual front airbags, side airbags, and ABS. There's a complete infotainment system with a touchscreen readout that utilizes everything you want in a modern car, including an AM/FM/XM premium stereo, Bluetooth connection, iPod compatibility, satellite navigation, and a backup camera. But of all the features, there's one we know you'll love the most on a crisp fall day. The front bucket seats feature MB's Air Scarf system that provides a constant rush of warm air to your neck, so that you can extend the top down season for a few weeks longer. The exceptionally clean engine bay shows off the original 3.5-liter V6 motor. This multivalve engine delivers its 302 horsepower with the kind immediate authority that you expect from a German performance machine. And because this is a Mercedes with less than 48K miles on it, you know it still purrs from the dual exhaust with precision today. And speaking of precision, the fully independent suspension, power steering, stability control, four-wheel disc brakes, and a seven-speed automatic overdrive transmission combine for the perfect symphony for those who love to make music on the backroads. So you know the driving experience is far superior that what you pay for on many brand new cars. Luxury, value, and modern precision â€“ this convertible offers all the right features for someone who knows style but still understands a great deal. And we know you're not the only one, so call today!
