Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate Review

Considering choosing a used Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate for your next car? Read our review to find more about this model…

The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate makes a very good case for being the only car you’ll ever need. An über practical, stylish and well-built German wagon with the benefit of housing a potent 6.3-litre V8 under its bonnet.

The C63 AMG has some fierce competition in saloon guise, with the main challenge coming from the BMW M3, in estate mode however, rivalry is found with Audi’s RS4 instead. Both challengers are worthy foes, however the Mercedes-Benz C63 has been designed to be a true driver’s car rather than just a more powerful version of an ordinary C Class.

Power is put to the floor via a seven-speed semi-automatic gearbox, paddle shifters offer a fully manual experience, or you can choose between either sport auto or comfort auto, depending on how heavy your foot is feeling… The Mercedes-Benz C63 is the first AMG to auto-blip on downshifts, a great bit of technology that rivals lacked on its release.

Inside, you are continually reminded that this Merc means business. A flat-bottomed steering wheel first catches your attention, before the huge seat bolsters grip you tight from every angle. Turn the car to race mode and your instrument binnacle is loaded with a timer and the vehicle vitals to monitor on track. As you can imagine from an estate, space is plentiful, a cavernous boot will swallow whatever you throw at it, while rear leg room is perfect for both children and adults.

The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate makes perfect sense as a family vehicle, motorway cruiser and track day toy. There are few cars that blend practicality with this level of performance and do it so well. This makes affordable used Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG cars particularly desirable.
