W212) Technical Data Range

Thomas Stopka (2006) Robert Lesnik (2011)

The Mercedes-Benz W212 is an internal Daimler Benz code for a sedan sold as the ninth-generation E-Class, replacing previous W211 models. C207 is the chassis code for the related E-Class Coupe, a replacement for the CLK-class coupe and cabriolet. The new E-Class went on sale in Europe in March and in America in July 2009.


Design work began in 2004 after the development program commenced in 2003, with the conceptual designs by Thomas Stopka being selected in 2005. After refinements and engineering considerations being made, the final design specifications were frozen in 2006. Certain elements of the exterior styling are taken from the preceding W204 C-Class and W221 S-Class each designed in 2002 and 2003.

The bulging rear wheel arches are meant to be reminiscent of the fender flares of historic Ponton Mercedes models of the 1950s. The design of the W212 and C207 E-Class was previewed by the ConceptFASCINATION design study in September 2008.
