2021 Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe Safety and Reliability

Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe Reliability Rating

2021 AMG S63 Coupe Safety

Neither the IIHS nor the NHTSA has yet published a crashworthiness review for the AMG S63 Coupe and, as it costs over $150,000, it's unlikely these agencies ever will. With all its safety systems, the S63 should provide excellent protection if the worst happens, though.

There are no less than 10 airbags including front knee airbags and curtain airbags for occupants in both rows. The usual systems like tire-pressure monitoring and electronic stability control are expected, but you also get attention assist, blind-spot monitoring, parking sensors with parking assistance, crosswind assist, adaptive high beams, lane-keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and a head-up display. A surround-view camera system enhances visibility. On the options list, you'll find advanced safety gear like adaptive cruise control, automatic speed takeover, and evasive steering assist.

2021 AMG S63 Coupe Reliability

J.D. Power's rating for the 2021 Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe is 75 out of 100, including a 74/100 score for quality and reliability. The BMW 8 Series has a better overall rating of 83/100. Some 2017-2021 S63 Coupes were affected by a widespread Mercedes recall for a faulty eCall system that sends out the wrong location to emergency responders following a crash.

There's a lot that could theoretically go wrong with such a complex vehicle, but Merc's four-year/50,000-mile basic and drivetrain warranty provides some peace of mind.
