There's a huge amount of Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG safety equipment on offer, which means it should be one of the safest cars around. The E-Class has scored a maximum five stars for crash safety in the latest NCAP tests. It is well-specified with passive safety kit such as side impact protection, two ISOFIX fixing points on the rear seats, Neck-Pro front head restraints to reduce whiplash as well as full range of airbags including driver’s knee and pelvis air bags.
There are many proactive safety systems designed to help avoid an accident such as ABS with brake assist (helps generate full braking power quickly in an emergency situation), three-mode stability system that can allow some rear end drift before intervening and brake lights that flash if the brakes are hit hard to warn following drivers. Pre-Safe is an active safety system that tensions the seatbelts, closes side windows and move seats into the safest position just before an accident.
There is also Attention Assist that monitors the driver and sounds an alarm if it senses the driver is falling asleep.
You won't have a huge amount to worry about regarding Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG practicality. The saloon comes with a good-sized boot (540 litres) that can easily take two large suitcases and a couple of overnight bags. A low boot lip helps with ease of loading and there are boot hooks to hang shopping bags from. There are cup holders for both driver and front passenger, plus a bottle holder in the front passenger footwell.
The estate naturally offers even more family-friendly usefulness thanks to a cavernous 695 litres of boot space that more than doubles to 1,950 litres with the rear seats folded. The rear seats come with quick-fold release levers, while there is a cover for the boot space, plus there are optional boot dividers.
The basic equipment list includes equipment that is standard across all versions of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class AMG (09-16).
