Which trim should you buy?

The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 63 S Wagon is a royal vehicle that costs around $113,500, it has all the features and latest technology which completely justifies its price tag. Other than that, this wagon is available in a single trim level, so trim-wise, there are no options for you but you can equip your Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon with a variety of optional features which add comfort, luxury, safety, and performance features, depending on your preferences. 

2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG E 63 S Wagon Engine and Performance

Under the hood of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon resides a monstrous but super-refined 4.0-liter premium unleaded twin-turbo V8 gas engine which produces a maximum power of around 603 horses and has a tire screeching torque of 627 lb-ft. This much power & torque is too much for a wagon to handle but Mercedes has given all the power of its engine to this vehicle so it wouldn’t feel like a boring wagon. This engine is paired to a 9-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission which sends the power to all four wheels as standard.

The looks of the sophisticated AMG E 63 S Wagon are deceiving since the engine roars like a loud sports car when put to the test. The power is delivered within a split second when you press the throttle hard. Multiple driving modes offered on this wagon let you choose whether you want a calm and economical drive or blasting through the traffic performance. The Merc goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds and completes a quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds.

All other wagons in the segment going up against the E 63 S Wagon are similarly priced but they simply cannot match the scintillating performance of the Merc. The Porsche Panamera 4S Sport Turismo Wagon has the smallest engine and also is the least powered among the three wagons mentioned above; however, it is the quickest in terms of 0 to 60 mph times. It only takes 2.9 seconds to do so. 

How well does the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon handle?

The E 63 S Wagon doesn’t handle like any normal wagon. It is swift, agile, and extremely powerful. It is equipped with adjustable air suspension which claims to offer the best ride quality and comfort for the passengers; however, it is firm even in its softest settings. This allows a better driving experience on smooth tarmacs but bumpy roads, it might get uncomfortable. The new AMG steering wheel has a good grip and weight to it. It has good feedback from the wheels and maneuvering this huge wagon is made much easier because of it.

 Around corners, there is some inevitable body roll but the wheels stick to their ground and offer great grip. The exhaust note is way more refined than other Mercedes and it remains calm when driven adequately. The cabin layout is more than just a luxury, the convenience features like heated/ventilated AMG performance seats with massage function provide both rider & front passenger so much comfort and relaxed feeling.

2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG E 63 S Wagon Braking Performance

Brakes are of utmost importance when it comes to a 600 horsepower, 4600 pound-wagon. The E 63 S Wagon has 4-wheel disc brakes with both the front and rear discs being ventilated. It is accompanied by active safety features and driver-assist features to help you stop the vehicle safely. The front brake rotors are 15.4 inches in size while the rear brake rotors are 14.2 inches. These are not the biggest in the class, however, it helps the driver to stop this chunky vehicle at a distance of 153 feet going from 70 to 0 mph.

The Audi RS 6 Avant is fitted with the largest brakes in the segment. It has 16.5inch front brake rotors and 14.6-inch rear brake rotors which perfectly suits as its the heaviest in the segment with a curb weight of 4960 pounds and almost 235 pounds heavier than Mercedes-Benz AMG E 63 S. While on the other hand, Porsche is representing its sports lineage and hence is the lightest in the segment, at least 557 pounds lighter than Audi. This weight and rotors combination grant Porsche Panamera 4S Sport the best braking performance in the competition.

2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG E 63 S Wagon Fuel Economy

The E 63 S Wagon puts out more than 600 horses and weighs over 4600 pounds. This is not exactly the recipe for good mileage but the Merc does decently. The powerful V8 is equipped with a cylinder shut off under partial load which allows it to be more economical than usual. The AMG E 63 S Wagon is rated at 16 MPG in the cities, and 23 MPG on the highways which results in a combined fuel economy of 18 MPG. Only the Panamera 4S Sport Turismo Wagon does better than the Merc in terms of fuel economy.

Mercedes-Benz AMG E 63 S has the most horses under its hood while Porsche Panamera 4S even with the least power in the competition performs much better than the rivals and claims the highest fuel economy of 19 mpg in the combined conditions, the reason is lightweight chassis and sporty driving dynamics. Audi RS6 Avant’s weight becomes a problem and thus reduces its economy even the most powerful Mercedes claims slightly better fuel efficiency than it.

2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG E 63 S Wagon Interior

The interior of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon is a blend of practicality, utility, comfort, luxury, and high-tech features. Mercedes is known for its world-class interiors and the AMG E 63 S Wagon is a stunning example. Starting from the dashboard, it has a flowing design featuring genuine wood and soft leather surfaces along with the huge dual 12.3-inch displays. The quad air vent setup and the cluster of buttons, knobs, and touchpad add a touch of class and modernity. 

The seats are covered in Simulated MB-TEX leather upholstery but an optional more premium Nappa leather upholstery is also available. Both the driver and passenger seats are 10-way power-adjustable and you’ll get memory settings for the door mirrors, steering wheel, and head restraints. For ultimate comfort, 14-way multi-contour front seats with heated and ventilated functionalities are also available. The front row is where the most space is. There is plenty of headroom and legroom even for tall passengers however, it is not the same for the rear seats. There is a lack of legroom which might feel cramped for tall adults. Nevertheless, the comfort offered is excellent.

Porsche Panamera 4S data on cabin dimensions aren’t mentioned properly in the table above, so from the other two wagons, Mercedes has greater space and comfort on front row seats whereas Audi RS Avant takes the lead on the rear row with better legroom.

It has immaculate clarity and high-resolution graphics and is powered by Mercedes-Benz’s latest MBUX multimedia. The functions and browsing through the menus are highly responsive. It can be controlled by the steering mounted controls, a rotary knob, and also a touchpad placed below on the center console.

2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG E 63 S Wagon Competition

2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon vs 2021 Audi RS6 Avant

The 2021 Audi RS6 Avant is also a good option for a performance-oriented wagon but when compared to the E 63 S Wagon, it is underpowered. Not just that, the interior of the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 63 S Wagon is much more luxurious and posh. The RS6 has the worst fuel economy in the segment. It is priced at $3,500 lesser than the Merc but we feel that the extra money is worth putting in for the Merc.

2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon vs 2021 Porsche Panamera 4S Sport Turismo Wagon

The 2021 Porsche Panamera 4S Sport Turismo Wagon is arguably the most attractive looking wagon among the three wagons taken up for comparison. It is drastically underpowered when compared to the AMG E 63 S wagon. However, it is the fastest to 60 mph and also has the best fuel economy in its class. Both are at par when it comes to interior quality and luxury and driving dynamics as well. Since both of them are very closely priced, it is up to you to choose between the two. To make it simpler for you, the Porsche is a more practical choice. 

2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG E 63 S Wagon Final Verdict

As said earlier, such a combination of performance, utility, comfort, and luxury are seldom found in a car and the new Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon proves why it is worth $113,500. It has the best performance among its rivals and offers a luxurious interior. Its sports car driving dynamics and excellent comfort are definitely worthy of giving some high-end sports cars a run for their money. If it’s a sports wagon you’re looking for, make sure to put this on your shopping list.
