What’s new for the 2023 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 4-Door Coupe?
After dropping the V-8 models for 2022, they return for 2023 and they’re the only models to get any revisions. They now come standard with a surround-view camera system and a heated steering wheel with additional buttons to control the vehicle performance settings. They also add new paint colors, new interior upholstery options, new wheel options, optional all-season tires, and an optional folding second-row seat.
The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is a big, brawny hatchback with a definite performance vibe. Its fastback styling is reminiscent of the beautiful CLS-Class, but without quite as elegant a rear end. It sports big wheels and tires, a low and wide stance, a long hood, and a short, bobbed tail. Inside, it’s sporty, tech-laden, and luxurious.
Buyers have a choice of turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 or twin-turbo V-8 engines, both aided by a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that can add up to 21 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. The turbo-6s are strong, with 362 hp in the base 43 model and 429 hp in the step-up 53, and they deliver a 0-60 mph time as low as 4.4 seconds. The V-8 makes 577 hp in the 63 model and 630 hp in the 63 S, which can rocket to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds. Fuel economy isn’t bad given the power, topping out at 21 mpg combined.
Mercedes bases the AMG 4-Door Coupe on the same platform as the E-Class and CLS-Class, but reinforces it to stiffen the structure for better handling. It comes with all-wheel drive, adjustable dampers, a limited-slip differential, big brakes, and staggered-size 19-, 20-, or 21-inch wheels and tires. Buyers can also get air springs, rear-wheel steering, and carbon ceramic brakes to improve performance.
The suspension does a good job of keeping the car relatively flat through corners and wrangling its roughly 4,400-pound curb weight. The steering is quick and connected, and the tires have lots of traction. It starts to feel heavy on a track, though, as there’s just no beating physics.
The size gives the AMG GT 4-Door comfortable seating for four adults, as long as they’re not too tall. The fast roofline cuts into rear headroom and the rear seat could also use more legroom. The cargo area is fairly small for a hatchback, but the new folding rear bench seat gives the car more utility.
Standard safety features include automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, automatic parking, a driver-attention monitor, and automatic high beams.
How much does the 2023 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 4-Door Coupe cost?
