Mercedes-AMG reveals 612 PS E63 wagon
After the reveal of the E63 and E63 S sedan, Mercedes-AMG continues tuning the new E-Class lineup with the introduction of the E63 and E63 S wagon. This model represents the fourth generation of high-powered wagons from AMG.
The main highlight of the E63 and E63 S wagon is its engine. Like the sedan, it is powered by a 4.0 liter Biturbo V8 engine and punches out 612 PS and 850 Nm of torque. It shifts via a 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission and is the lone transmission option for the AMG wagon. It then lays down its power to all four wheels with 4Matic with drift mode to shift all power to the rear wheels. Mercedes-AMG claims that the E63 S wagon can do 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and sprint to a top speed of 290 km/h
To differentiate the E63 from the lesser powered counterparts, it gains AMG bumpers with a grill exclusive to the high-performance E-Class wagon. Its fenders are also wider to accommodate the wider tires, along with its AMG-engineered suspension. On its fenders are arrow-shaped wing signets in silver chrome bearing a V8 BITURBO 4MATIC+ badge. Over to the rear, it gets its own unique rear tailgate spoiler.
Despite the power, Mercedes-AMG claims that practicality was not compromised. With all seats in place, cargo capacity is rated at 670 liters while folding the second row boosts space to 1,820 liters. A power liftgate is standard on the E63 and E63 S wagons. The automaker adds that these wagons post best-in-class cargo capacity when compared to other high-performance wagons.
The rest of the interior is carried over from the sedan. It gets nappa leather trim for the instrument panel and beltlines, sport steering wheel with a crystal grey 12 o'clock marking and contrast topstitching, an AMG crest in the front head restraints, crystal grey seat piping, IWC-designed analogue clock and seat belts in crystal gray.
