Neither the NHTSA nor the IIHS has crash-tested the E63 specifically, which isn't surprising given its retail price. Luckily, lesser E-Class models have been smashed up, and the news is good. The NHTSA review of the E-Class awarded it full marks in all categories. The 2022 E-Class received a Top Safety Pick + award from the IIHS, but this is only applicable to models with the optional driver assistance package included. We have no doubts that if either agency did review the Mercedes-AMG E63 Sedan separately, it would emulate the results of the standard E-Class.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
For such an expensive car, the E63 S doesn't have a lot to brag about. It comes with seven airbags including side curtain airbags and a driver's knee airbag, driver attention, and drowsiness detection, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, parking assist, a surround-view camera, and Merc's Pre-Safe collision preparation system. There are a host of driver assistance features available from the options menu, though, including an onboard dashcam, various states of semi-autonomous cruise control, lane keeping assistance, parking assists, and evasive steering assistants, to name but a few. An extra two airbags can also be equipped for rear occupants, taking the total to nine.

The E63 S has had several recalls issued over the years, and despite only just coming to market in 2021 guise, it already has a few to its name. These include a starter power cable that may short circuit, a blinking rearview camera display, and a seat position limiter that positions the occupant too close to the airbag, which can be disastrous in an accident.
Every E63 S is covered by a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty. The drivetrain is covered for the same period.
