2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4Matic+ T-Modell Is The Maddest Station Wagon Around



Crossovers and SUVs make for an appealing choice in terms of cars, but as more and more people opt for them, something has to give. That something, as one would expect, is the slow and bitter death of the family-friendly station wagon body style.

https://www.autoevolution.com/news/2...14.html#agal_0

In the red corner, we have the Honda Civic, which is no longer available as a wagon. But in the blue corner, Mercedes-AMG pushes the envelope of sanity with the all-new E63 S 4Matic+ T-Modell. Like the sedan model, the station wagon version of the E63 S packs a hand-crafted 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 under its hood.

The numbers are downright ridiculous for a longroof: 612 PS (603 hp), 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) from 2,500 to 4,500 rpm, and a quick-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission sending the goodies to all four wheels through a performance-oriented AWD system. The non-S model isn’t as powerful as its big brother, but the specs are impressive nonetheless: 571 PS (563 hp) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) between 2,250 - 5,000 rpm.

Other than a small difference in terms of acceleration (3.5 vs. 3.6 seconds) and weight (1,985 vs. 1,995 kilograms), there’s another thing you should know about the two. And that is that only the E63 S 4Matic+ T-Modell has a drift mode. In three-pointed star jargon, “drift mode” is just another way of saying the vehicle can go rear-wheel-drive at the touch of a button.

Oh, and another thing: thanks to a cargo capacity ranging between 640 and 1,820 liters (22.6 to 64.2 cuFT), the E63 4Matic+ T-Modell and E63 S 4Matic+ T-Modell boast the largest trunks in the performance estate segment.

“It is not for nothing that the model has been a permanent fixture in the AMG portfolio for 40 years,” said Tobias Moers, the CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. "The powerful engine and the intelligent all-wheel-drive underpin our claim to always be at the forefront of development when it comes to performance," he concluded.

Press Release

THE NEW MERCEDES-AMG E 63 4MATIC+ ESTATE AND E 63 S 4MATIC+ ESTATE

Dynamism meets space and intelligence

Affalterbach. In the new E 63 4MATIC+* Estate and E 63 S 4MATIC+* Estate, Mercedes-AMG combines the brand’s hallmark Driving Performance with the intelligence of the E-Class. As in the Saloon, the 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine with an output of up to 450 kW (612 hp) and the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive deliver an outstanding driving experience. Acceleration from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds sets a new record in this class. At the same time the engine is now even more efficient thanks to a cylinder deactivation system fitted as standard.

Like the Saloon, the E 63 4MATIC+ Estate and E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate offer innovative driving technology and outstanding performance, coupled with a unique design and the latest infotainment systems.

The new Estate boasts even more agile response than its predecessor: the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT (Multi Clutch Technology) 9-speed sports transmission is combined with a wet clutch. The new AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system combines the advantages of various drive configurations. Torque distribution on the front and rear axles, which is fully variable for the first time, ensures optimum traction in all road conditions.

“The new AMG E 63 Estate combines our brand’s hallmark driving dynamics with high everyday practicality. It is not for nothing that the model has been a permanent fixture in the AMG portfolio for 40 years. The powerful engine and the intelligent all-wheel drive underpin our claim to always be at the forefront of development when it comes to performance,” states Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
