“three more airbags than the CLK”
Motor Trend

no blind spots over your shoulder

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has yet tested the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe for frontal or side-impact safety. The numeric rating assigned here is based on the historical performance of the Mercedes E-Class and CLK-Class and will be updated when testing is complete.

Safety equipment in the 2010 E-Class Coupe is beyond complete. “Mercedes-Benz has made big efforts in recent times to once again assume a leading role in safety,” AutoWeek says, “fully reflected in the E-class coupe, which not only gets seven airbags—including a knee device for the driver.” Motor Trend lists its standard gear, including “three more airbags than the CLK, with the addition of pelvic and kneebags.” The E-Class Coupe “also has proactive head restraints and the Pre-Safe alphabet soup of ESC, BAS, and EBD (electronic stability control, brake active assist, and electronic brake distribution) and a windshield wiper sensor that tells the brakes to dry themselves.”

The E-Class Coupe includes safety features that give visual help for parallel parking; a Distronic Plus system that helps brake the car if it senses an accident is about to occur; and Attention Assist, which infers from driving patterns if the driver might be getting drowsy. It alerts the need for a stop with a cup of coffee.

Visibility is good in the 2010 E-Class Coupe. “With no B-pillars to block your view, there are no blind spots over your shoulder,” Edmunds reports, “although the headrests of the rear seats severely restrict the view out of the rear window.”


The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe offers an extraordinary collection of safety features, and a reputation for crashworthiness.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
