The 2018 Mercedes-AMG® E 63 S Wagon is a luxury vehicle fit for stylish drivers. You’ll find a powerful V-8 under the hood, extensive creature comforts, and the elements to keep you in control on tough road conditions. For a vehicle that has it all, the new Mercedes-AMG® E 63 S Wagon is a great addition to your shopping list. Here are a few reasons this model is worth a test drive.

Exterior Design

Mercedes-Benz has modified this vehicle’s design for the 2018 model year by widening the wheel arches and increasing the length of the wheels on the front axle. That’s not all, though. The Mercedes-AMG® E 63 S Wagon also features an inset hood between the fenders and bumper similar to what you’d find on a coupe, a longroof body, a jet wing-inspired front bumper, and an exhaust system with high-gloss, chrome-plated twin tailpipe accents.

Engine Capabilities

A twin-turbocharged AMG® 4.0-liter V-8 engine powers this model. It’s equipped with a nine-speed sport transmission and AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® Multi Clutch Technology (MCT), which allows you to shift effortlessly and experience better response when accelerating.

When we talk about the potential power of this engine, there are so many elements to feel impressed by. The Mercedes-AMG® E 63 S Wagon is capable of producing an astounding 603 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. It has a top speed of 180 mph and can go from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 3.4 seconds.


This model features an AMG® Performance 4MATIC®+ all-wheel-drive system with DRIFT mode for precise torque distribution and excellent traction on challenging road surfaces. Other elements to enhance performance on this vehicle include an electronically controlled limited slip differential, twin-scroll turbochargers, speed-sensitive steering, independent wheel control, and a full support multi-chamber air suspension system.

Plus, you can customize your driving experience via five AMG® DYNAMIC SELECT modes, including Comfort, Sport, Sport+, RACE, and Individual.

Interior Comforts

As you step inside your Mercedes-AMG® E 63 S Wagon, you’ll notice several interior features to keep you comfy and cozy during your car trip. For instance, you’ll find sport seats, a black Nappa leather AMG® Performance steering wheel, 40/20/40-split folding rear seats, and a commendable 35 cubic feet of potential trunk space. The latter makes this vehicle’s trunk the largest in its class. Other notable amenities include a dashboard and beltlines with Nappa leather trim and gauges with carbon-fiber accents.

As far as technology is concerned, the Mercedes-AMG® E 63 S Wagon has plenty. It features a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster with tracking abilities for speed, safety, and performance. There are also three designs — Classic, Sport, and Progressive — which allow you to customize your display screen. Finally, you can easily access this vehicle’s semi-automated driving abilities via DRIVE PILOT. It comes with automated emergency braking, self-steering, adaptive cruise control, and radar sensors.

For a vehicle that combines both style and efficiency, the 2018 Mercedes-AMG® E 63 S Wagon is a great choice. You can own yours for a starting MSRP of $105,225.
