The Mercedes-Benz E-class is an established German stalwart in the mid-sized sedan segment (known as executive cars). It’s a direct competitor of the BMW 5-series and Audi A6. The E-class has its roots all the way back to 1953 with the Mercedes-Benz W120, but it was only in 1993, when the fourth generation W124 gained a facelift that it became the E-class. Ever since, the E-class has been a favorite among those who seek laid-back German luxury with a comfortable and relaxing touch. The fourth generation was produced between 2010 and 2017 as a sedan, wagon, coupe, and convertible. This is a fourth generation 2012 Mercedes-Benz E550 Cabriolet from New York with 42,000 miles on the odometer.
