One major debut for Mercedes-AMG at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 is the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Estate. We’ve already seen and driven the Sedan version of this car, the Estate promises much of the same, except with an increased load capacity! We were eager to take a closer look at the display car.
Most buyers of the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Estate will choose it purely for its load-lugging ability. It boasts between 640 and 1,820 litres depending upon how the rear seats are configured; the largest in the performance estate segment. A new setting on the rear seats allows a 10-degree steeper angle, generating an additional 30 litres of cargo volume. The seats are split 40:20:40.
At the heart is the 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo engine tuned to produce an output of 571 hp for the normal variant and 612 hp for the E 63 S. It produces 750 Nm of torque at 2,250 rpm to 5,000 rpm and 850 Nm at 2,500 to 4,500 rpm for the E 63 S. AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive delivers a staggering 0 to 100 km/h time of just 3.5 seconds, setting new performance benchmarks for the performance estate market.
