Mercedes E63 AMG Estate Spotted at the Ring

You might have read my teaser about AMG’s new beast of a family hauler the E63. This wagon packs a whopping 604hp which is undoubtedly plenty to haul around the family and grab some groceries. Now it’s been spied making its way around the Nurburging doing some test laps. Still under camo, but it’s clear that the aggressive nature of the E63 AMG can’t be hidden.

Mercedes is likely going to use their 4.0L twin-turbo V8 in the 2017 E63. The motor has been shared in the C63 and AMG GT S. Mated to AMGs seven-speed Speedshift automatic transmission, the power will be delivered to all four wheels via an AMG-tuned 4Matic all-wheel drive system.

We are hoping the all new 2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 and E63 S will start to hit showroom floors by the end of the year. Both a sedan and wagon variant will likely be available to consumers with former to make its way to consumers first.


Mercedes-Benz C Class Estate Coming to Canada

Mercedes-Benz Canada is set to introduce the C Class Estate to the Canadian market in the spring of 2016. The wagon version of the newly introduced C Class, previously only available in European markets, will hit showrooms in February of 2016. The 2016 C300d 4MATIC Wagon will be powered by a 2.1L diesel 4 cylinder motor, making 190hp and 369lb-ft of torque. Power will be routed through the 7G-Tronic Plus gearbox to all 4 wheels, making it a great year round car for our Canadian winters.

Like the C Class Sedan, the C300d 4MATIC Wagon comes packed with safety features such as Collision Prevent Assist, Attention Assist, Blindspot Assist, and my favorite, Distronic Plus with Steering Assist which allows the Wagon to drive itself up to 60km/h.

There are no plans for a C63 Wagon (currently available in Europe), but that could change in the next 2 years if the C300d 4MATIC Wagon sells well.
