New Mercedes-AMG E 63 Estate crops up, fails to excite

25-03-2020 13:10
Unlike its archrival – the BMW M5 – the Mercedes-AMG E can be obtained in an estate/wagon form and not just as a sedan/saloon. Following the premiere of the refreshed E-Class Benz, its AMG version has been discovered simply sitting in a parking lot.

Unlike its archrival – the BMW M5 – the Mercedes-AMG E can be obtained in an estate/wagon form and not just as a sedan/saloon. Following the premiere of the refreshed E-Class Benz, its AMG version has been discovered simply sitting in a parking lot.

Based on the photos, the E 63 Estate has a similar front end to that of the recently revealed Mercedes-AMG E 53 4Matic+ (see video for details). The similarities extend as far as the bulky bumper and the Panamericana grille. The LED Matrix headlights look borrowed from the non-AMG E-Class, and there is a sporty-looking new diffuser at the rear housing quad exhaust tips.

Inside, the steering wheel is new, the infotainment system looks more up-to-date, and a new touchpad resides where the gear knob once was.

Nothing is being revealed about the engine palette the family hauler will ship with. In all likelihood, the power rating of the V8 4.0 TT will stay in the same range of 571–612 PS (420–450 kW). The maximum torque will also remain the same at 750–850 Nm (553–627 lb-ft). That said, Mercedes can and probably will fit the engine with its 48-volt EQ starter, which produces around 22 (16.4 hp) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of its own.

No changes are expected in the nine-speed automatic transmission and AWD configuration.

The Mercedes-AMG Е 63 Estate should celebrate its official premiere later this year.
