Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet (2010-2017) - Reliability & safety

Mid-table reliability results don’t excite, but the E-Class Cabriolet can be fitted with clever safety tech

Carbuyer Rating

3.2 out of 5

Reliability & safety Rating

3.5 out of 5

Scores from our Driver Power 2015 survey plot the E-Class Cabriolet on a very average course. No particular areas stood out when buyers rated their E-Class, but reliability was decent and build quality fared even better.

In terms of safety, the E-Class has the usual array of equipment that should be seen on all cars these days. Mercedes also offer a wide range of optional safety tech lifted from the executive S-Class saloon.

Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet reliability

Although the E-Class Cabriolet didn’t get its own result, the standard E-Class saloon did. A fairly mid-table 62nd out of the total 200 cars in our Driver Power 2015 survey isn’t anything to shout about, especially considering both the BMW 5 Series and Audi A6 placed higher. A reliability score of 67th, again, wasn’t particularly outstanding, but the Mercedes did better on build quality.

The brand as a whole just missed out on a top 10 slot, clinching 11th place out of 32 in the manufacturer’s satisfaction survey. Buyers were impressed particularly by build quality, but most other results were average at best. The brand did beat BMW and Audi in the overall chart, though.

Safety

Standard safety equipment includes some complex technology, which not only anticipates accidents and responds accordingly, but even monitors the driver and suggests they take a break if it detects drowsiness. Anti-lock brakes, airbags and electronic stability control all feature, too.

Like most Mercedes cars, there’s also a host of extra safety kit that comes as optional extras. Lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring and traffic sign recognition can all be equipped. Adaptive cruise control checks the road ahead and alter the car’s cruising speed depending on the traffic ahead.
