The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe (Mercedes-AMG GT 4) was presented publicly as part of the Geneva International Motor Show 2020 . From now on, in the model line of the German company three models Mercedes-AMG GT (Mercedes-AMG GT) – a two-seat sports car with a closed coupe Mercedes-AMG GT , a cabriolet with a soft convertible roof Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster and a 5-door hatchback, -AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. In our review, the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe 2019-2020 – photos and videos, the price and specifications, the technical characteristics of the sporty 5-door hatchback, announced by the manufacturer as a 4-door coupe. Sales of the 5-door Mercedes-AMG GT will start in the summer of 2020 at a price of 120-125 thousand euros for the 435-horsepower all-wheel drive Mercedes-AMG GT 53 4Matic +.
If the two doors of the Mercedes-AMG GT and the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster are called into the ranks of Mercedes to compete with the Porsche 911 and the Porsche 911 Cabriolet , the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe will try to bring down the Porsche Panamera . And just take my word for it, the novelty of Mercedes will make it easy.
It should immediately be noted that a large 5-door hatchback with a comfortable 4-5 local saloon and luggage compartment, which can take 395-1324 liters depending on the position of the backs of the rear seats, is not the sister brother of coupe and roadster models AMG GT (the original platform with two lever suspension of the front and rear wheels, as well as the “robot” Getrag (transaxle scheme) located at the rear axle). At the heart of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4 is a modular “trolley” MRA with two front levers and a lot of lever rear suspension, as well as an automatic transmission located just behind the engine in the front of the car. So the brothers of the novelty are the new generation of Mercedes-Benz CLS and Mercedes-Benz E-Class .
At once there is a request, why Mercedes-Benz companies two cars Mercedes-Benz CLS and Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe in the niche of sports “four door coupe”?
- Firstly, cars with different body styles: the CLS is a 4-door sedan stylized under the coupe, and the GT 4 – the 5-door hatchback is also stylized under the coupe.
- Secondly, the 5-door GT looks outwardly more aggressively and brutally than the brother’s sedan brother.
- Thirdly, the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe will not have modest versions with diesel engines, a rear drive and a price tag in the region of 70,000 euros, but only the most powerful gasoline engines, four-wheel drive and a price starting at a mark of at least 120-125 thousand euros.
As a confirmation, we offer you to get acquainted with the technical characteristics of the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe 2019-2020, offered from the start of sales in three versions with powerful petrol turbo engines.
Mercedes-AMG GT 53 4Matic + with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine (435 hp 520 Nm), supplemented with a starter-generator system EQ Boost (22 hp 250 Nm), helping cars with intensive acceleration. The 9-speed automatic transmission (AMG Speedshift TCT 9G), full drive transmission 4Matic + (by default the driving wheels are rear, and the multi-plate clutch, if necessary, connects the front wheels, thus providing the car with a full drive). This technical arsenal provides a 5-door equipped with a mass in 1970 kg with acceleration from 0 to 100 kmh in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 285 km, the claimed fuel consumption is 9.1-9.4 liters. Suspension spring, brakes of all wheels disk.
Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4Matic + with 4.0-liter V8 Biturbo (585 hp 800 hp), equipped with two new inline turbochargers, a liquid intercooler and a system for deactivating half of the cylinders. Transmission AMG Speedshift MCT 9G with a wet clutch disk instead of the traditional torque converter, of course, the proprietary 4Matic + all-wheel drive system, as well as air suspension and rear steering wheels with a pair of electric actuators (at a speed of 100 kmch turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels , and at a higher speed turning in the same direction as the front ones). The car with a mass of 2025 kg fires up to 100 km / h in 3.4 seconds, a top speed of 310 km / h, and an average fuel consumption of 11.0-11.2 liters.
Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic + with petrol 4.0-liter V8 Biturbo (639 hp 800 Nm), AMG Speedshift MCT 9G automatic system, 4Matic + all-wheel drive system, supplemented with a rear differential with electronic control. The transmission has additionally got a drift mode with a complete ESP shutdown and a multi-disc clutch installed in the front. In the drift mode, the 5-door sports car is exclusively rear-wheel drive. Suspension, understandable business, pneumatic with the steering wheel of the rear wheels. The most powerful engine accelerates the car with a loaded weight of 2,045 kg to the first “hundred” in 3.2 seconds, a top speed of 315 km / h, an average fuel consumption of at least 11.2 liters.
As standard equipment for all versions of the 5-door Mercedes-AMG GT, the AMG Track Pace system is available to help you choose the best mode for driving on the race track (Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport +, Race and Individual), supplemented with a safety system with several levels driving skills (Basic, Advanced, Pro and Master). The higher the level, the less electronics interferes with driving, tracking and reading as many as 80 parameters.
I would like to note that the new 5-door sports car of Mercedes on dynamic and high-speed characteristics has surpassed all modifications of the Porsche Panamera. For example, the 550-horsepower Porsche Panamera Turbo scores the first “hundred” in 3.6-3.8 seconds and accelerates to a maximum of 306 kmh, while the hybrid and the most powerful Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid with a 680-horsepower engine can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 3.4 seconds and gain the maximum speed of 310 km / h, but … this is enough only to compete with the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4Matic +, but not with the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic +. It’s hard to imagine what a full-fledged hybrid Mercedes-AMG GT 4 with a 800-horsepower powerplant will be capable of.
With technology figured out, and back to the exterior and interior of the chic five-door hatchback, positioned by Daimler as a 4-door coupe. The exterior design of the body, as mentioned above in our review, is aggressively brutal, stylish, bright and charismatic, as befits an expensive sports car. In the presence of LED matrix lights, a powerful body supplemented by a mass of aerodynamic chips – splitters, spoilers, active blinds (rear spoiler is adjustable, and for a surcharge even from carbon), huge wheels – 255/45 R19 on the front axle and 285/40 R19 on the rear axle the Mercedes-AMG GT 53 4Matic + and the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4Matic + versions and the larger 265/40 R20 and 295/35 R20 in the powerful Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic + version. If desired, for any version of the 5-door can be installed at a surcharge 21-inch aluminum forged wheels with rubber 275/35 R21 in front and 315/30 R21 at the rear.
Saloon hatchback Mercedes-AMG GT at the request of the customer can be as a 5-seat with a rear sofa designed for three, and 4-seat with two separate seats for the rear passengers. At the same time, all the seats in the cabin are sporty with powerful lateral support and an anatomical profile of the back. The driver’s and front passenger’s seats are like a GT3 racing car. The front of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is equipped with a combination of the front panel from the soplatform Mercedes-Benz CLS and the two-door Mercedes-AMG GT tunnel.
In the presence of an analog (for the Mercedes-AMG GT 53) or a digital instrument panel (versions of the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 and Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S) with a diagonal of 12.3 inches, an advanced multimedia system with a similar display-sized instrument panel, steering wheel with touchpad, background LED interior lighting (a choice of 64 shades), driver’s and front passenger’s seats with electric adjustment, ventilation and heating, rear seats with heating and ventilation, three or four zone climate control and a mass of electronic security systems, assistant and assistants in the system of automatic braking and adaptive cruise control, operating with the help of radar to set Drive Pilot, able to drive a car on the highway.
