The Mercedes-AMG E63 4Matic is in line for a mid-life facelift to help it keep pace with alternatives, most notably the newer BMW M5 Competition.
2020 Mercedes-AMG E63 4Matic price and release date
The current Mercedes-AMG E63 S saloon costs just under £97,000, so the 2020 facelift is expected to inherit a similar price tag – almost exactly what you’ll pay for a BMW M5.
2020 Mercedes-AMG E63 4Matic specs
In these newly-surfaced spy pictures of the Mercedes-AMG E63 4Matic, the front and rear ends are heavily camouflaged, suggesting the E63 will get the customary revised bumpers you’d expect of a facelift. Despite this concealment, it’s plain to see that the car’s lights have been redesigned. The most notable change has to be the addition of new daytime running lights along the upper edges of the headlights. This has been done to bring the Mercedes-AMG E63 in line with the rest of the manufacturer’s range – predominantly the new C-Class – which received its own facelift just last year.
Inside of the 2020 Mercedes-AMG E63 4Matic, expect to come across Mercedes’s new MBUX infotainment system. This setup integrates two huge touchscreens and effectively twins the usual, middle-of-the-dashboard screen with the drivers display. It has augmented-reality satnav, which combines the navigation with the front-facing camera. Through this, you can be given directions and live updates over footage of the road in front of you.
You can expect the 2020 Mercedes-AMG E63 4Matic to get a decent power increase over the current model. An exciting prospect, since the current S model already has a 612hp 4.0-litre V8 that’ll get it from 0-62mph in just 3.4 seconds.
