The Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon is a nearly perfect car.
The 2021 model year update comes with a revised front fascia with a jet-wing style lower intake design.
Under the hood, you'll find a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 making 603 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.
Power is sent to an AMG Performance version of Mercedes' 4Matic all-wheel-drive system via a nine-speed, dual-clutch transmission.
Like before, the E63 features a Drift Mode that locks the powertrain at 100% rear-wheel drive for tire-smoking drifts.
The E63 is impressive not just because of its immense performance, but also for its surprisingly well-mannered demeanor as a daily driver.
Even in its sportiest setting, the wagon rides smoothly and comfortably.
Yeah, the AMG exhaust is a bit loud at full chat, but the E-Class wagon flies under the radar in most situations. I like that it doesn't attract attention.
The E63 is one of only a few high-performance wagons left in the US.
