Chronology
PredecessorMercedes-Benz CLK-Class (C209/A209)
SuccessorMercedes-Benz E-Class (C238/A238)

The C207/A207 Mercedes-Benz E-Class are the coupé and convertible versions of the fourth generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class, produced between 2009 and 2017 as the successor to the previous C209/A209 CLK-Class.[1][2] The body styles of the range are:

Unlike its predecessor, high-performance AMG models were not offered.[3] E350 and E400 coupé models were also available in all-wheel drive 4MATIC variants from 2012.[4][5]

It was replaced by the C238/A238 E-Class in 2017.[6]

Development and launch[edit]

The C207/A207 E-Class shares its platform with the W204 C-Class sedan, featuring identical wheelbases, and similar axle track lengths.[7] While the W212 E-Class sedan is built at the Sindelfingen plant, the E-Class C207 coupé is built in Bremen alongside the W204 C-Class.[8]

Initial petrol models used the CGI BlueEFFICIENCY name, with the exception of the E300 BlueEFFICIENCY and E500.[9] With the introduction of the Mercedes 7G-Tronic automatic transmission in 2011,[10] models subsequently dropped the CGI moniker, along with the BlueEFFICIENCY name after the 2013 facelift.[11] Diesel models with the nine-speed automatic transmission were also called BlueTEC instead of CDI BlueEFFICIENCY,[12] and facelifted models were simply called CDI or BlueTEC.[11]

Mercedes-Benz originally intended for the C207/A207 to be called CLK, but moved over to the E-Class name later during development.[13]

Body styles[edit]

Coupé (C207)[edit]

The coupé was introduced at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.[14]

Convertible (A207)[edit]

The convertible was unveiled at the 2010 North American International Auto Show.[15]

Convertible models are available with Mercedes' AIRSCARF system, which provides neck-level heating for front occupants,[16] and the AIRCAP windshield spoiler and wind deflector system, deflecting air over the cabin for reduced draft and wind noise.[17]

Equipment[edit]

Interior

Standard equipment includes Mercedes' AGILITY CONTROL semi-adaptive suspension[18] and ATTENTION ASSIST which alerts the driver when the car detects driver fatigue.[19] Models feature front, side, and knee airbags, along with belt tensioners and head restraints.[20] An AMG Sports package can also be optioned, featuring AMG bodystyling, 15 mm (0.6 in) lower suspension, silver painted front brake calipers, and wider 18-inch alloy wheels.[21]
