New Mercedes E-Class
MERCEDES-AMG has chosen next month's Geneva Motor Show to reveal two new versions of its E-Class line-up in the shape of the high performance E 63 4MATIC+ Estate and E63S 4MATIC+ Estate.
The UK release will be early April, with first deliveries expected to arrive in August. Exact UK specification and price is still to be confirmed.
Like the AMG versions of the E-Class saloon, the new estates will offer innovative driving technology and outstanding performance, coupled with a unique design and the latest infotainment systems.
Mercedes claims the estate offers more agile response than its predecessor. It comes with a new AMG multi clutch technology 9-speed sports transmission combined with a wet clutch. The new 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system ensures optimum traction in all road conditions.
The power for the new estates comes from the AMG 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 which gives them a peak output of 612bhp with S version able to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5seconds, and the E 63 4MATIC+ in 3.6seconds with CO2 emissions coming in at 206g/km.
Both estate models come with the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system fitted as standard.
Inside, the newcomers are fitted with an AMG performance steering wheel, improved seating with integral head restraints, a multifunction display with two monitors comes as standard in the S version.
