The luxury sports convertible segment is highly competitive—the biggest brands are continuously creating new technologies and fresh designs to impress and delight year after year. To highlight one of Mercedes-Benz's best-selling convertibles, the extraordinary E-Class Cabriolet, we put together a 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet vs 2017 Jaguar F-Type Convertible comparison.
Both the E-Class and the F-Type offer decent starting prices, with the E-Class featuring the more-affordable price. Even though the E-Class costs less, it offers one more engine option than the F-Type. The F-Type engines do generate higher horsepower and torque ratings but the E-Class achieves better fuel economy, making it a more practical, every day-use vehicle. The decision between these two iconic convertibles will depend on what the buyer wants—gas-sucking horsepower or practical thrill.
