2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon to Debut in Geneva

2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon to Debut in Geneva

By Philly Murtha, February 02, 2017
Mercedes-AMG Performance Division will bring the 2018 E63 S wagon to the United States in the fall. Packed with 603 horsepower and 627 lb.-ft. of torque, this streamlined, ultra-energetic midsize premium wagon contains most of the same features as the E63 S sedan. It even aces 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds, according to the German automaker. The low-slung Mercedes wagon debuts in March at the Geneva Motor Show.

Agility, performance with racing heritage, and technology are key to the new E-Class wagon variant that is equipped with the AMG hand-built, twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V-8 engine. The new engine, which produces 26 more horsepower than the previous model’s engine, is matched with an AMG 9-speed Speedshift MCT (multi-clutch technology) automatic transmission. Torque is variably distributed through front and rear axles. The new superwagon is also configured with standard 4Matic all-wheel drive. AMG programs five driving modes, including “Comfort” and “Race” to adjust steering and handling dynamics.

Exterior design is not like a typical wagon or SUV, but coupe-like and sporty with a hood that is inset between the fenders and a winglike front bumper similar to the coupe variant. The AMG E63 S Wagon also is 1.1 inches wider than the coupe, with wheel arches that accommodate larger wheels on the front axle. Side panels sweep back, giving the wagon a wider, lower stance. A front splitter and large air intakes are also incorporated into the wagon’s design. The rear end includes a muscular bumper with a rear diffuser and chrome tailpipes.

Inside is luxury sporty, with a black Nappa leather steering wheel that is flat at the bottom. Dashboard trim is Nappa leather with carbon fiber-look gauges adding a sporty touch to the standard, digital, dual 12.3-in. screen instrument cluster. Sporty bucket seats feature improved support, according to Mercedes-AMG, and integral head restraints can be ordered as an option. All connectivity and advanced driver-assistance and safety systems are included in the new wagon.
