Mercedes-AMG E63 4Matic Estate - UK prices revealed for 563bhp super-estate

Mighty new E63 Estate starts at just over £81k and tops out at nearly £110k for Edition 1 cars

Mercedes-AMG has revealed UK pricing for the upcoming E63 and E63 S 4MATIC Estates, the ultimate family friendly supercars. Complementing the immensely impressive saloon, the estate will command a £2000 premium over the saloon, starting at £81,130 for the entry-level E63 and topping out at £108,780 for the rammed E63 S Edition 1.

Like the saloon, standard E63 estates get standout features such as 19-inch alloys, Nappa leather upholstery and the swish twin 12.3-inch screen layout, but you will have to upgrade to the ‘S’ specification to get the larger 20-inch wheels, active engine mounts and AMG performance seats as standard.

Mercedes-AMG E63 S review - Four wheel drive and drift mode; is the E63 a proper AMG?

Available on both models is an optional ‘premium pack’, priced at £2,595. It gives you a panoramic sunroof, high-end Burmester sound system and clever Multibeam LED headlights.

For those who want something slightly more exclusive (and have a bit more cash to burn) the Edition 1 model will also be available at £108,780 for the first year of production. It adds sprinkles of carbonfibre trim, Selenite Grey ‘magno’ matte paintwork and yellow stitching inside the cabin.

Carbon-ceramic brakes are a £6995 option, while an AMG performance exhaust is available for a tempting £1000.

Sharing the immensely practical body with the standard E-Class estate, it can store 640 litres of luggage with the seats up and as much as 1820 litres with them folded flat, while accommodating varying loads with adjustable rear seat backrests and a 40:20:40 split folding rear seat.

The estate is powered by the same 4-litre, twin-scroll, twin-turbocharged V8 as the saloon variant, outputting 563bhp in standard form and 603bhp in E63 S form. And like the saloon, that power is sent as standard through all four wheels, as part of Mercedes' 4Matic system. 0-62mph takes only 3.6sec for the E63, a tenth quicker for the S.

 The 4Matic setup can fully vary torque between the axle, giving the E63 as much tyre-vapourising potential as its rear-drive predecessor but extra security when driving conditions aren't conducive to traction.

A nine-speed AMG Speedshift MCT automatic (consisting of a planetary gearset but a wet clutch, rather than a torque converter) is again standard, sporting quicker shift times than previous E63s. At the rear is a mechanical limited-slip differential.

And adjusting the way all that (and the air suspension system) behaves is as simple as prodding the AMG Dynamic Select button, which cycles among Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual settings. As ever, Individual will surely be the way to go, allowing you to pick and mix your own combination of adjustable settings, including throttle response, gearshift points, suspension, steering weight and the extent to which the ESP system intervenes.

E63 S models also come with dynamic engine mounts, which vary their firmness according to driving conditions. Other S niceties include the option of AMG carbon ceramic brakes, which may be more suitable for those with autobahn commutes than UK customers, and a Race mode beyond the usual Dynamic Select settings.
