By taking the bus, it is almost as far as one can travel via 2018 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, this slogan is also suitable for the latest version of the grand Benz grand. For 2018, the S-Class sees a mid-cycle update that brings powertrain changes, interior and exterior design settings and, significantly, improved semi-autonomous driving functions.
Just like the standard model, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG has only received a few changes outside. The first thing that attracts attention is the new group of headlights with multi-beam LED units and a remodeled housing. The front grille and bumper have also been revised, but nothing greatly alters the appearance of the car. Around the back, there is a new apron and a redesigned exhaust tailored design that stands out even more. Mercedes also revised the wheels, with 19-inch rollers offered as standard (unlike the S65, which features 20-inch wheels).
The style has remained virtually unchanged inside the cabin, so the AMG model continues to offer the exclusive ambience of which it is known. The package includes familiar AMG sports seats with enhanced side support, Nappa leather with “AMG” badges, and IWC analog clock with three-dimensional metal hands and metallic faceplates. The three-spoke AMG Performance steering wheel is new and features a deeply rimmed performance leather rim in the entry area and a metal insert with the AMG logo. Dinamica Black Leather and Dinamica Microfiber Nappa Microfibre finish is optional. All driving characteristics can now be found on the steering wheel for better control and improved driving experience. The new unit also detects horizontal and vertical flip-flops like the screen of a smartphone.
On the S63 4MATIC + (combined fuel consumption: 8.9 l / 100 km, cumulative emissions of CO2: 203 g / km), Mercedes-AMG has refined driving dynamics and looks further ahead. For improved performance with considerably reduced fuel consumption, the 4.0 liter Biturbo V-8 AMG engine with cylinder deactivation replaces the Biturbo V-8 V-8 by 5.5. Despite the smaller displacement, the new engine emits 450 kW (612 hp) and therefore exactly 20 kW (27 hp) more than the previous model. With a sprint time of 3.5 seconds from zero to 100 km / h, the performing luxury salon is tied with full-blooded sports cars. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9 “sports transmission replaces the previous 7-speed transmission, resulting in more agile response times, while the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC + all-wheel drive system provides optimum traction.
Expect that prices for 2018 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG increase, but not much. With the current model priced starting at $ 144,700 for the 2017 model year, the facelifted version is expected to spill about $ 150,000 before options. This is certainly not the most affordable sedan, but it is nowhere as expensive as the AMG S65, which is expected to be $ 230,000.
