Opinions on 2017 E-Class / E63

I know it's just a leak of the standard E-Class but do you guys like the new body style and interior? Would you upgrade (given an E63(s) model) or do you favor the older style?

Love the interior, but I think the current W212 (2014+) looks more aggressive. Every single one of these new styles is just a shortened version of the S Class.

Safe to assume at this point it will look just like a larger C63. Will be interesting to see how the 4.0L performs on a awd drive setup. Tuning wise W212 will remain king.

Just as expected...a bigger C or smaller S. My preference is for the strong industrial design and sharp angular lines as found in the pre-facelifted W212.

I like the design but I'm not a fan of blurring the lines between the classes.

You guys are all talking about how it's not aggressive enough... In an AMG forum...
I'm certain when the E63 pics are released, you'll all be drooling like we were when face lift was released

I think it's very nice, that interior is stunning... Exactly what an E class interior should look like.... And what we all want it to look like. Looks like there will be a lot more individual options for the interior as well.

Good find Peter....
I hate that they are going badge less on the side fenders now. This is definitely not as aggressive as I thought it would be....

No worries man, that's just the e400

E63 will be much more aggressive and badged up I think

This kills me even more how they got rid of the e550 in the USA, would have loved the e550 for my wife's next car with those good looks of the w213

Ah ok! Pheww

By E400 were talking about a de-tuned M178? Or something completely different

That's not too shabby. Is that the same motor in the wicked looking C450? Love that car.

Nah, even the new C63s looks kind of weak... I can't pinpoint it but the original C63 looked much more aggressive.

Yea I agree, last generations models looked more unique (maybe that isnt the correct word to use) and aggressive. This modular design is killing it for me.

+1. It's the shift from all that angular, muscular lines for a bulbous shape.

C63
Looks like a bigger C class. That's the first thing that popped in my head.

The current E's look much more aggressive.

'03 G500, '13 G63, '17 GLS63,
I like it. I'm waiting to see how the 4.0 will perform, though. I hope it's not a similar case when the W211 E63 was slower than the W211 E55 it replaced. Also waiting to see if they bring the wagon to USA.

2016 Mercedes Benz E 63 S AMG Wagon
I have to say I'm happy I ordered one of the last W212 E63 Wagons. Although the interior on the 2017's looks amazing, i'm not a fan of the exterior. I can't imagine the wagon looking better than the current wagon.

Also a 4.0 L engine doesn't appeal to me. AMG's are supposed to be gnarly machines, not lawnmowers with turbos strapped on. But maybe that's just me justifying my purchase of a '16.

Well I guess we will know what the features and looks will be at least on the 2017 E63 AMG sedan within a week or so when it's unveiled at the Detroit auto show. http://blog.caranddriver.com/sketchy...-2017-e-class/

That's why I ordered one and own the badazz beast 2016 w212. The new 2017 is for the nerd-herd who wants more gigabytes than horsepower. The gauges are pathetic on the new 2017 e class.

With everything being equal, there is no replacement for displacement.
