Summary


The Mercedes-AMG GT 4 Door is a luxury liftback that combines sports car performance with the cabin luxuries and practicalities of a high-end executive car – rivalling upmarket sports saloons like the Porsche Panamera.

While the GT 4 Door is marketed alongside the cheaper GT Coupé sports car, it is actually built on the same platform as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class executive saloon. While the definition of a coupé model usually boils down to a two-door car, Mercedes-AMG insists on calling this liftback model the GT 4 Door Coupé, due to its sporty sloping roofline.

First arriving on UK roads in the middle of 2018, the entry-level Mercedes-AMG GT 4 Door is powered by a supercharged V6 engine with mild-hybrid technology. The range also includes more powerful twin-turbocharged V8 models, and a flagship plug-in hybrid model, called the E-Performance.

The GT 4 Door has been warmly received by the British motoring media since its arrival, particularly enthusiast-focused titles who are impressed by the car’s exciting driving dynamics and pace, as well as its alluring looks.

“It looks great and goes like hell”, Top Gear comments, while Autocar says that the GT 4 Door is a “resounding dynamic showcase” that is currently the benchmark in its class, thanks to its “magnificently composed” chassis and “herculian” range of engines.

That said, more consumer-centric motoring outlets don’t see the Mercedes-AMG GT 4 Door in the same light. While Carwow comments that the liftback’s interior “looks like an AMG greatest hits album”, with a heap of stylish touches taken from other models in the range, What Car? asserts that the GT 4 Door’s interior quality does not live up to its price point, also concluding that “its poor refinement — both road and suspension noise — are its biggest failings by far.”

The car’s six-figure price is another big sticking point for reviewers – which has led many journalists to recommend the Porsche Panamera over the GT 4 Door, as it is considered to be the better all-round choice, and for a cheaper upfront cost.

As of January 2024, the Mercedes-AMG GT 4 Door holds a New Car Expert Rating of E, with a score of 54%. Although it gets good grades from media reviews, it is hampered by very high running costs and poor CO2 emissions. It’s also worth noting that we don’t have safety or reliability data at this time.
