A family wagon with loads of attitude, the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon combines searing pace with loads of space for a family and their cargo. Under the hood is the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that does duty in the E63 sedan with outputs of 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission, 4Matic+ all-wheel-drive, and even a Drift mode leave little doubt that this is no ordinary wagon.
Outside, the E63 stands out from the more docile E450 wagon thanks to its AMG body styling (with widened front fenders, a twin-power-dome hood, Panamericana grille, and larger air intakes), quad exhaust outlets, and 20-inch AMG twin five-spoke alloy wheels. A panorama roof and all-LED lighting are also standard. Inside, the leather-trimmed seats feature power-adjustment, heating, and ventilation in front. The driver also has access to a memory system. Further luxury features include 64-color LED ambient lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control, remote start, hands-free access, a power liftgate, and an illuminated entry system. On the technology front, the driver faces twin 12.3-inch digital displays. There’s also standard navigation, a 13-speaker Burmester surround-sound system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth audio streaming.
