Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door 2019: prices, specs and release date

All-new four-door Mercedes-AMG GT set to take on Porsche Panamera Turbo

 

 

This is the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door Coupe, the latest offering from Mercedes’ high-performance and racing arm, AMG. Taking inspiration and technology from its two-door Mercedes-AMG GT sibling, the GT 4-door Coupe adds two doors and a choice of engines in a sleek four-door coupe body akin to that of the recently released Mercedes CLS.

The new car is offered in four versions (but not all are set for the UK): the GT 43, 53, 63 and 63 S. The GT 43 and 53 are powered by the same six-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, which utilises a mild-hybrid system to boost power and efficiency, but they’re not currently slated for the UK.

The 63 and 63 S are powered by the same 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine as found in the GT, producing 585 and 639bhp in 63 and 63 S trim respectively.

From the outside, the new car resembles the Mercedes CLS and is based on similar underpinnings, but the GT 4-door Coupe gets a host of bespoke parts and bodywork, plus tuned suspension and 4MATIC four wheel drive. Its swooping lines are resolutely sporty, with a rear end that reflects that of the original AMG GT model.

Inside, the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door Coupe gets the usual mix of luxury and sporty styling enjoyed by other performance Mercedes models. It’s a strict four-seater as standard, with a bench seat on the options list.

Release date

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door Coupe is expected to reach UK showrooms in spring 2019, with the order book set to open in October 2018. Prices are likely to be a little higher than for the AMG GT, which starts at £99,960; the top-spec AMG GT 63 S model is expected to start at around £135,000.

The AMG GT 4-door Coupe will be available in the UK in 63 and 63 S form, but the 53 version has yet to be confirmed. The 43 has been ruled out for the UK market.

 

 

Engines

The entry-level GT 43 4MATIC+ comes with a turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine that uses mild-hybrid technology in the form of an electronic compressor to boost performance and economy. This comes with a nine-speed automatic gearbox and 4MATIC+ four-wheel drive. Power stands at 316bhp, which is enough for 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds. Fuel economy of up to 25.8mpg is claimed, while CO2 emissions range from 209-215g/km.

The step up to the GT 53 brings the same engine, gearbox and four-wheel-drive system but power climbs to 362bhp. Economy and CO2 emissions are unchanged, although the 0-62mph time drops to 4.5 seconds.

A 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine powers the GT 63 and GT 63 S models, with 577 and 630bhp respectively – enough for a 0-62mph in 3.4 seconds (63) or 3.2 seconds (63 S). Each uses a nine-speed fast-shifting automatic gearbox and 4MATIC four-wheel drive, although the 63 S gains an AMG Performance 4MATIC system with a built-in ‘drift’ mode for more advanced drivers.

As ever with Mercedes-AMG products, the GT 4-door Coupe comes with a range of selectable driving modes: Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Slippery and Individual, plus ‘RACE’ on the GT 63 S. Optional adaptive suspension also features.

 

 

Interior and spec

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door Coupe departs from the driver-focused interior treatment of the two-door models in favour of a more passenger-friendly format. The influence of saloons such as the Mercedes CLS and Mercedes S-Class can be seen in a dashboard that flows across the width of the car, with turbine-style air vents in polished metal set into attractive decorative trim. Wood and carbon-fibre designs are set to be offered and upholstery options include quilted cream leather.

The 4-door Coupe also boasts Mercedes’ twin-12.3-inch display screens. The left one provides configurable driving information and the one on the right looks after infotainment, connectivity and convenience functions.

Multi-coloured mood lighting provides atmosphere, and the AMG theme is emphasised by a centre console with space for eight drive mode controls. There’s also an ‘S+’ performance toggle switch on a racy, flat-bottomed steering wheel, among buttons that control the exhaust note and an array of chassis, engine and response settings.
