Mercedes-Benz just lately up to date the look of its E-Class sedan, and a part of that concerned turning the wagon variant we’re fortunate to have right into a Subaru Outback knock-off. However there’s some excellent news with the brand new design, too. The brand new look means the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S wagon needed to get larger wheel arches.
There’s not a lot to speak about with the brand new Mercedes-AMG E 63 S sedan and wagon. It nonetheless will get a 603-horsepower “biturbo” AMG 4.0-liter V8 with 627 lb-ft of torque on lively engine mounts, AMG brags, linked to a AMG “Speedshift” MCT 9-speed auto transmission and all-wheel drive.
However the attention-grabbing adjustments come to the design, the place the grill has been inverted upside-down from the outgoing design, which doesn’t look pretty much as good, and the headlights have been closely reworked to now lay “flatter,” because the automaker describes it.
I noticed it and disliked it on the AMG E 53, however the 63 is completely different. AMG claims it means the cooling inlet behind the grille is considerably bigger than earlier than, which is what I’d say if individuals thought my design was ugly, too.
Inside, the automotive will get a very bizarre six-spoke steering wheel that I need to check out, which additionally will get bigger shift paddles, an up to date MBUX person interface,
However that reworked design on the entrance now additionally comes with wider wheel arches—little doubt a wonderful and wondrous factor that we should always see on extra vehicles. It’s not specified, but it surely was possible compelled change from the elevated profile of the entrance fascia which, together with the flatter headlight design, now sports activities a wider triple-air-intake that cut back carry over the entrance axle.
The brand new look is completed off with the controversial (however enticing right here, I believe) AMG-specific radiator grille.
The one problem, although, a minimum of in addition to the face, is that the prolonged wheel arches didn’t fairly make all of it the way in which the rear axle of the wagon, a minimum of not as dramatically, which makes it look a little bit too front-heavy. Like someone who skips leg day. I’m not telling you to roll the fenders in your $110,000 AMG wagon, but it surely’s an concept!
