New Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate pricing and specs confirmed

Standard version to cost £81k, more powerful E63 S £90k

The new Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate will cost from £81,130 and is on sale now, with first customer deliveries in September. As is increasingly the case with Mercedes-AMG models, there’ll be both ‘standard’ and more powerful ‘S’ versions of the car, with the E63 S coming in at £90,490 and a special Edition 1 launch model costing £108,870.

March’s Geneva Motor Show saw the public debut of the car, which uses the same 563bhp 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine as the E63 saloon, which was unveiled at the Los Angeles Motor Show in 2016.

The more powerful E63 S version has had its engine tweaked to produce 604bhp. Both models feature Mercedes’ 4MATIC+ four-wheel-drive system to provide enough grip to match their power. Yet despite power increases for both of the new E63 estates, they’re more efficient than their predecessors thanks to the V8’s smaller size and cylinder-deactivation technology. Official economy stands at 31mpg.

Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate performance

The E63 Estate can do the 0-62mph sprint in 3.6 seconds, with the S version taking 3.5, meaning the extra cargo space only adds an extra tenth of a second to the times of the corresponding saloon versions. Helping with straight-line speed is a new nine-speed automatic gearbox, as well as the 4MATIC four-wheel-drive system. The latter can send power to the wheels with the most grip and allow the car to become purely rear-wheel drive when desired. The S version even comes with a ‘Drift Mode’.

A new adjustable three-chamber air-suspension system is standard on the car, allowing you to adjust the ride quality to favour comfort or performance, as well as a suite of semi-autonomous driving features and speed-sensitive sports steering. Buyers considering the estate will have an eye on practicality, and the E63 doesn’t disappoint in that respect. With rear seats in place, it offers 640 litres of boot space, which expands to 1,820 litres with them folded flat.

The E63 Estate is wider than the standard E-Class equivalent thanks to its sporty AMG bodykit, while the aprons and side sills make the car look lower to the ground. Mercedes says the chrome-plated exhaust system has been tuned specifically for the estate.

Equipment and options

Standard kit includes the aforementioned sports suspension, 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, Nappa leather upholstery, split-folding rear seats, a 12.3-inch infotainment screen and a widescreen cockpit display, while the S model ups the wheel size to 20 inches and adds dynamic engine mounts, ‘AMG performance’ seats and a more luxuriously finished steering wheel.

As is the way with so many new cars, Mercedes will offer a limited-edition model of the E63 Estate from launch. Based on the specification of the S model and called the Edition 1, the car will be on sale for around a year and will feature some exclusive styling touches and the AMG Night styling pack as an option.

Options include ceramic brakes (available on the S and Edition 1 for £6,995) and a performance exhaust (available on all models for £1,000). AMG carbon-fibre and ‘Night’ styling packages are also available, for £3,370 and £795 respectively, while a ‘Premium’ package of equipment (which is standard on the Edition 1) can be added to the other version for £2,595. It incorporates a panoramic sunroof, keyless go, a surround-sound stereo and intelligent LED lighting.

A ‘Driving Assistance Plus’ package is also available for £1,695, equipping the E63 with a brace of driver assistance and active safety systems, including blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assistance, lane-changing assistance, steering assistance, speed-limit assistance and active cruise control (to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front).
