Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

We give a qualified nod only to the six-cylinder with rear-wheel drive; its below-average reliability makes it an acceptable choice for this class, but the AWD version and V-8-equipped E550 are rated too poorly to recommend. The E320 Bluetec diesel doesn’t have enough reliability data to rate it.

Volvo C70

It’s hard to find a more well-rounded convertible than the C70. It has four seats, its retractable hardtop and front-wheel drive make it suitable for winter, it offers manual or automatic transmissions and it’s one of few convertibles to offer side curtain airbags.
