Never dismiss a wagon, even on a racing circuit. That's a rule I confirmed when Mercedes-Benz invited me out to the track for hot laps in its E63 AMG S 4Matic Wagon.
Mercedes E Klasse
This year, the big story for Mercedes-Benz is undoubtedly the launch of its 2014 S-Class, traditionally the tip of the Three-Pointed Star's technological spear. It's been said many times that if you want to see how the future of the automobile will look, take a gander at the S-Class, and you'll see a lot of cutting-edge wonders that will trickle down and become more commonplace a generation or three down the road. Yet due to an odd product cadence issue, it's actually the facelifted 2014 E-Class
Despite the fact that Mercedes-Benz seems to have AMG-ified nearly every model in its current lineup (not that we're complaining), it always seemed like sort of a misstep that this same treatment was never afforded to the E-Class Coupe (pictured). After all, Merc has created AMG versions of the E-Class in sedan and wagon form for some time now. For 2014, the revamped models are powered by the potent 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 and fitted with 4Matic all-wheel drive.
