2021 Mercedes-AMG S63 Review, Pricing, Specifications

overview

Mercedes-Benz Debuted Next-generation S-class sedanHowever, those looking for an enhanced AMG S-Class should settle for the two-door 2021 S63 for now. Available as a coupe or cabriolet (read: convertible), the S63 is still on an older S-class platform with a less technically magical interior. I’m not complaining. These are currently the only ways to achieve 603 horsepower twin-turbo V-8 and sports-oriented chassis enhancements on cars with the S-Class badge. This configuration provides rapid acceleration and incredibly agile handling, but none of these characteristics compromise the smooth and sophisticated driving etiquette of the S63. The 2021 S63 Coupe and Cabriolet are too expensive for most people, but exciting and extravagant for the elite, due to the perfectly crafted cabin and lack of premium features and technology.

New features in 2021

In 2021, Mercedes will drop the AMG S65 sedan with a V12 engine. As the regular Mercedes-Benz S-Class enters the new generation, the AMG 4-door body style is currently dormant. However, the S63 coupe and cabriolet haven’t changed much. Both models are now available on the Cirrus Silver and feature a new standard massage front seat with enhanced heating capabilities. The surround view camera system is also standard equipment.

Price and which one to buy

    Between the hardtop and softtop versions of the S63, I prefer something that can be topless. Mercedes offers retractable soft tops in four different colors (black, blue, beige and red) at no additional cost. There is also an exterior package that replaces the standard exterior chrome trim with black or carbon fiber accents. Inside, there is a selection of leather upholstery and trim options. When a variety of active safety features are required, the Driver Assistance Package rosters with devices such as Adaptive Cruise Control and other assists that make driving easier and safer.

    Engine, transmission, and performance

    Peek under the hood of the S63 and you’ll find a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that delivers 603 horsepower and 664 pound-foot torque. The engine is paired with an unobtrusive 9-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. This setup makes the S63 a very fast drive machine.In our test, the coupe Dashed from 0 mph to 60 mph In just 3.0 seconds. Both S63 body styles are excellent in dignity and precision. It’s also a carefree companion when the road is rough, with suspension tuning designed to prevent the harshness of the cabin.

    Fuel economy and real world MPG

    The government predicts that the Mercedes-Benz S63 Coupe will achieve fuel economy of 16 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The cabriolet version is inefficient and has a rating of 14mpg cities and 24 highways. I’ve observed a fuel economy of 18mpg on the S63 coupe, is that really important?

    Interior, comfort, and cargo

    The cabin design is a high point soaring in the S63. With elegant styling and the finest materials, it boasts an interior that looks luxurious from every angle. The front seats have a massage function that provides a spa experience. Effective insulation mutes things properly in the cabin when the car is in motion. The S63 Convertible and Coupe variations offer 7 cubic feet and 10 cubic feet cargo compartments, respectively.

    Infotainment and connectivity

    The list of standard technical features of the S63 is exhaustive. This includes 13-speaker Burmester surround sound steer, wireless device charging, and navigation. All models come with an integration of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphones, in addition to Wi-Fi hotspots. A more sophisticated Burmester sound system with 24 speakers is also available.
