2013 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Estate

$_57

The Wall Street Journal ran a piece last Friday covering the new E63 AMG S Series Estate. More than one friend messaged me over the weekend asking if I read about this new fast five-door. I informed them, however, that a fast estate car is nothing new for Mercedes-Benz. This just happens to be the first one to employ an all-wheel drive system. Still, my remarks were met with confusion, as those who read the article viewed such an estate vehicle as impractical or unattractive. To each their own, but for those jaded by the glut of SUVs on US roads, a V8 monster like this 2013 E63 AMG Estate is just what the doctor ordered.

If you don’t need all-wheel drive, these older AMG Estates seamlessly combine speed and practicality. Mercedes and AMG have a long history of offering massive amounts of power under subtle sheet metal and this E63 AMG is no exception. Picking up this car when it is one year old is a tricky proposition. While you save some money over the original MSRP, there is still a ways for this car to depreciate. I have a feeling at this price point, a lot of folks in the market would stretch just a bit more and order a new AMG Estate. If you can wait another couple of years, though, I’d suspect there will still be a few of these cars hanging around with low mileage. Around that time, a better deal will most likely await.

  1. Love the car. Love the coffee cup icon! Like you need caffeine when driving this beast!

    (I just learned this is the Attention Assist icon. Again, this car should be excitement enough to keep you awake!

  2. Used to have E39 540i wagon w/alot of suspension mods…it was hella fun & quick for a heavy wagon .. great hauler…its hard to believe how the prices have dropped on them they are a good bargain if you can find a clean one & can handle maintenance ..wish it had a manual trans & gas was cheaper is about all I can say in the yin dept…E63 wagon is high on top of my wagon bucket list ..Some of the higher mileage ones are becoming affordable…I’m looking forward to dropping the hammer in this uber wagon as soon as a local dealer gets a used 1 also in my sights the cadillac cts-v wagon whenever prices start to drop..hey they were tuned at nurburgring that’s German enough for me…

  3. I read somewhere once that the demographic of AMG Estate new vehicle purchasers had the highest income of any non-Maybach MB product. Sorry I don’t recall where I read this, but I found it interesting.

  4. well when you consider that E63 Estates are generally ordered and not just sitting in inventory that should tell you something…..
    I prefer this one to the new one reviewed by Dan Neil in the WSJ….looked a little too funky in the rear section for my taste….this one however screams ALL BUSINESS!

  5. Coincidental?
