The Mercedes-AMG E 63 sedan and station wagon, as well as their S versions, have undergone a planned restyling. Most of the innovations were in the design and equipment, but there are also technical changes.
New items received LED optics from the regular E-class, updated in March. The front part has significantly reduced lift, and the front fenders are additionally widened by 10 millimeters: now the difference with the standard "Yeshka" reaches 27 mm. The wheel design (19-inch for the E 63 and 20-inch for the S version) has also been redesigned to improve aerodynamics.
- The cabin has new screens (multimedia system and dashboard) with a diagonal of 10.25 or 12.3 inches (depending on the configuration), a steering wheel with double sensor spokes, using a sensor to determine the presence of the driver's hands on the rim, and the MBUX multimedia system with native voice control and telemetry display function.
The biturbo 4.0 V8 in the Mercedes-AMG E 63 develops the previous 571 hp. (750 Nm), and on the E 63 S - 612 hp. (850 Nm). The dynamics have not changed either: the sedan accelerates to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds (3.4 in the S-version), and the station wagon is 0.1 seconds slower. The maximum speed of the basic modifications is 250 km / h, the E 63 S - 300 km / h for the sedan and 290 km / h for the station wagon.
- Four-wheel drive with a multi-disc clutch for connecting the front axle and a nine-speed automatic AMG Speedshift MCT, which has a wet clutch package instead of a torque converter, remained without alterations. Rear-wheel drive drift mode is available only for the S version.
- In the standard E 63, the mechanical self-locking on the rear axle has been replaced by an electronically controlled one from the S-version. The sedan and station wagon have also re-tuned the suspension. According to the creators, thanks to the changed springs and dampers, the difference between the Comfort, Sport and Sport + driving modes should become more noticeable.
World sales of the Mercedes-AMG E 63 and E 63 S will begin in 2020. Prices for the new product have not been announced. At the same time, BMW immediately named the cost, including the Russian one, of the updated M5 sedan.
