On July 15, 2021, Mercedes-AMG will reveal price for the high-performance E 63S in India. For the first time, the firm will debut the E 53 sedan in India, with a market launch scheduled for the same day. These two new models would bring the German brand’s total number of releases in India to 10 in 2021. Both sedans will be equipped with Mercedes’ 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system and will feature the normal length wheelbase rather than the extended wheelbase version found on non-AMG models.
In accordance with the facelifted model that just went on sale in India, the updated performance-oriented E-class receives design modifications. It gets stylistic tweaks to help it blend in better with Mercedes-global AMG’s lineup. The new E 63S has an AMG-specific radiator grille with 12 vertical slats and a larger Mercedes star badge to set it apart from the newly revised E-class range.
The new E 63S keeps the 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine from the pre-facelift predecessor, which generates 612hp and 850Nm of torque in the top-spec S version, which is likely to arrive in India. A 9-speed automatic transmission distributes power to all four wheels.
AMG Dynamic select software and driving programmes have been adjusted for the updated performance sedan, including improvements to the software controlling its all-wheel-drive systems and ESP stability control. According to the manufacturer, all of these improvements push the E 63S to 100 kph in 3.4 seconds.
Flatter brake lights and a redesigned apron, which has also been aerodynamically optimised, can be found at the back. A new diffuser is also available. The E 63S’s basic wheel size remains 20 inches, and alloy wheels are standard.
It comes with the newest version of the MBUX infotainment system and a digital instrument display, both of which may be customised with AMG logos. A new twin-spoke AMG Performance steering wheel with haptic feedback controls is now available, as well as a ‘hands on’ sensor that will trigger warnings and, eventually, activate emergency braking assist if the driver’s hands are not on the wheel for a lengthy period of time. Larger aluminium paddleshifters are mated to the new wheel and can control the 9-speed transmission.
