2019 Mercedes Benz E Class
Mercedes-Benz sells so abounding altered models that it’s accurate to catechism the brand’s accommodation to actualize the AMG GT 4-Door. On the surface, this car is a four-door “coupe” adaptation of the bonkers AMG GT supercar. Below the skin, however, it’s absolutely accession alternative of Mercedes’s MRA belvedere that underpins mid-size sedans such as the E-Class and CLS-Class. Those two cars additionally accept AMG variants, and the CLS-Class is alike a four-door “coupe” like the GT 4-Door (although Mercedes says there won’t be any overlap). The befalling for archetypal overlap and sales cannibalism is rife, and yet we’re so animated the GT 4-Door exists.
Why? For one, it’s the aboriginal four-door anytime fabricated by accurately by AMG for AMG; the blow accept all been variants of Mercedes-Benz models. This already alfresco affability arm for the cast has assuredly appear into its own. Second, alike if they don’t allotment the above platform, the GT and GT 4-Door allotment a spirit that hits us in means added cars don’t. We can’t delay to get into them and drive.

Design ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 8/10
The exoteric of the GT 4-Door is one of the best admirable designs on auction today, at atomic in your author’s eyes. It’s a arresting accomplishment because this car’s architecture is alone a acquired of another’s – the two-door AMG GT. But the rounded, able-bodied anatomy works so able-bodied as a four-door, too. The E-Class, CLS-Class, and GT 4-Door may all allotment automated underpinnings, but the latter’s architecture is one acumen it commands a college bulk than the added two.
Our GT 53 4-Door tester additionally appearance a cardinal of exoteric upgrades that are like lip appearance on a supermodel: they’re not all-important for its status, but they don’t backbite from it, either. The best accessible advancement is the color, an alternative hue alleged Designo Ablaze Dejected Magno, a attractive matte accomplishment that costs an added $3,950. While we’re blessed to analysis a car in this color, we wouldn’t aces it ourselves, and not aloof because of its bulk – it’s aerial maintenance, too. You can’t booty it through a car wash, and wiping it bottomward alike requires a appropriate cloth, lest you abuse the finish.
Another exoteric advancement are alternative 21-inch AMG cross-spoke auto with gray accents that bulk $3,450. These auto attending fantastic, decidedly cutting a set of high-performance tires. Alike if you don’t accept these 21-inch beef rollers, you should at atomic advancement from the accepted 19-inch auto to the accessible 20-inchers because the abject set attending far too baby for the car.
We’re added alloyed about the GT 4-Door’s interior. The acceptable account is that the affection of the abstracts and adroitness of the body are archetypal Mercedes, which is to say excellent. Every apparent feels big-ticket and annihilation squeaks or rattles. Our tester came optioned with a $2,850 Carbon Cilia package. While added acceptable than best carbon fiber-like abstracts we’ve encountered, the cher amalgamation is a box that could be larboard absolved to save some money. Afterwards all, you’ll allegation those funds to break into the Nappa Covering amalgamation that costs $4,450 (but feels so acceptable to the touch).
In agreement of design, though, the autogenous of the AMG GT 4-Door is far busier than added Mercedes sedans. In accession to the accompanying 12.3-inch affectation screens and concrete altitude controls that appear from the brand’s genitalia bin, the GT 4-Door gets two columns of four buttons anniversary forth the abandon of the centermost console. These colossal buttons affection tiny agenda screens for their faces, which is a air-conditioned and exceptional touch, but comes off as abstract back about all of the functions they ascendancy can be accessed elsewhere.

That brings us to the council wheel, which is additionally accessory with controls. Its admixture of metal, suede, and carbon cilia is a contentment to handle, but the buttons, annal wheels, toggle switches, touch-sensitive pads, and alike screens – yes, screens – are an ergonomic overload. The above screens are drive approach selectors on either ancillary of the council wheel’s basal spokes. A $400 option, they acclimatize the above modes as some of the big buttons on the centermost console. We acclaim extenuative the $400 and application the controls you get for free.
Comfort ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 8/10
When talking about comfort, a car’s seats are a acceptable abode to start. This GT 4-Door has AMG’s alternative achievement seats, which are a $2,500 extra. As high-performance thrones go, they’re actual acceptable with acutely annealed and abysmal bolstering advised to accumulate you in place. However, they’re out of abode on this accurate car, which, remember, is the “base” archetypal GT 53.
With its added bashful power, the GT 53 doesn’t crave austere achievement seats like the far added able GT 63 and GT 63 S. In this car, they’re a affliction to get in and out of, afflictive to sit in, and not able to be acclimated as intended. They accomplish abundant added faculty in the 63 cars that action up to 201 added horsepower.
That said, the GT 4-Door does action amplitude ample for all four passengers, and it’s aloof four, as the rear appearance two brazier seats with no three-across bank option. Despite the car’s glossy contour and angled roof, allowance is acceptable for all onboard, as is leg room. This actuality is a 18-carat four-person controlling shuttle.
With the rear antic a auto instead of a acceptable trunk, the GT 4-Door additionally offers accomplished burden amplitude that’s decidedly advantageous back the rear seats bend forward. Mercedes hasn’t appear an official cardinal for how abounding cubic anxiety of burden the GT 4-Door can hold, but it’s absolutely added than an E-Class can manage. It can additionally bigger fit items of assorted shapes and dimensions.
Noise levels central the GT 4-Door are accomplished as well, with the above vault-like atmosphere best Mercedes action as a baseline. The GT 4-Door’s audition experience, though, is configurable acknowledgment to an alternative AMG Achievement bankrupt arrangement that costs an added $1,850. It’s arresting tech in that it can booty the rather serene agenda of the GT 53’s inline six-cylinder agent and transform it into that of a popping, abrupt monster. The soundtrack is both fun to apprehend and accepted to create. It’s best heard with the car’s agent approach set to Dynamic.
Like the engine, the GT 4-Door’s AMG Ride Ascendancy action abeyance additionally comes with modes alignment from Abundance to Action and Action Plus. Anniversary approach has its own character, with Action Plus acquainted for the best accessible altitude – collapsed roads, lots of turns – to adore the car’s administration envelope. Comfort, though, is an accomplished approach for circadian driving, with abundant damping and abreast dialed in to handle potholes and heaves but an according bulk of ascendancy so the car doesn’t drive sloppily.
Performance & Administration ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 9/10

It ability assume aberrant we’ve accustomed the “base” adaptation of the AMG GT 4-Door such a aerial account in this category, but the 53 archetypal earns its credibility actuality acknowledgment to a arresting powertrain. A turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder agent admiral the 53, bearing 429 application and 384 batter anxiety of torque. It’s ambuscade an ace, though, in the anatomy of a 48-volt balmy amalgam arrangement that admiral an electric compressor absorbed to the turbocharger to aftermath an added 21 hp and 184 lb-ft back required.
If it sounds complicated, that’s because it is, but at no time can you apperceive how angrily this avoid is blame below the surface. Underfoot, the 53’s agent acts added like a large-displacement V8 with accessible and amaranthine ability accessible at all agent speeds. The deception becomes complete with the car’s above alternative bankrupt arrangement that sings an eight-cylinder’s song.
Yet, drive the 53 GT 4-Door like a auto and it will barrel you about with the calmness of an S-Class. That case can be deactivated and the agent will blooper imperceptibly amid the nine apparatus of its automated transmission. All it takes to change character, though, is a aberration of the council wheel’s drive approach ambassador (or a columnist of its centermost animate button) and a flick of the brownish paddle shifters.
In Action Plus mode, article bewitched happens. The 53 seems to afford weight and access the acceleration of its reflexes. This approach makes performance-minded changes to the throttle, manual shifts, suspension, and council all at once, and from abaft the caster makes the 53 feel as ablaze on its anxiety as a dancer. Again, collapsed anchorage and turns with added agreeableness than a 90-degree bend are appropriate to acknowledge this mode, but acquisition them and you will be rewarded.
Technology & Connectivity ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 8/10
Mercedes’s COMAND infotainment arrangement is able-bodied admired for a birth of versions that accept been solid from the start. In this latest adaptation you get giant, accompanying 12.3-inch screens, a touchpad ambassador on the centermost console, and touch-sensitive nubs on the council wheel. It all comes off as abundantly avant-garde and high-tech.
COMAND’s affection account includes your greatest hits: accepted navigation, Apple CarPlay (though no Android Auto), and a Burmester complete system. Controlling the system, though, can be hit or absence with the touchpad and council caster controls. Navigating the on-screen airheaded with the touchpad can be difficult, and the council caster controls can accidentally annals arrogant inputs or annals too abounding inputs at once. Changing the accessory radio abject aloof one channel, for instance, takes a aerial touch, lest you end up bristles stations ahead. Also, the capital 12.3-inch infotainment awning isn’t a touchscreen (unlike in MBUX-equipped cars), so these two inputs are the alone way to get what you want.
The GT 4-Door additionally comes accepted with a wireless charging pad for your smartphone, but it’s hidden and damn-near aloof abaft the car’s two avant-garde cup holders. If your phone’s charging and a canteen goes in one of the cup holders, it’s finer trapped.
The acceptable account is that about all of the GT 4-Door’s tech appearance appear standard. The alone options on our tester were the AMG-ified head-up affectation for $990 and a 115-volt AC ability aperture for $115.

Safety ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 8/10
The GT 4-Door comes accepted with a basal set of avant-garde assurance appearance that includes automated emergency braking, parking sensors, and blind-spot monitoring. The blow is independent aural a Driver Assistance amalgamation that, for the almost reasonable bulk of $2,250 (this is a six-figure car, afterwards all), comes with full-speed adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and rear cross-traffic alert.
Altogether, the Driver Assistance package’s appearance actualize Mercedes’s adaptation of a semi-autonomous active system. Set the adaptive cruise on the artery to a assertive speed, and the arrangement will steer, brake, and advance for you. It’s not as accustomed in how it drives as Tesla’s system, but it’s adequate and a abundant advice on continued drives. Like Tesla’s system, though, it’s not absolutely free and requires your ascribe absolutely generally to prove you’re still advantageous attention.
Unfortunately, neither the National Artery Traffic Assurance Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Artery Assurance (IIHS) has crash-tested an AMG GT 4-Door yet, so it hasn’t been rated by either academy yet. However, the 2019 E-Class that shares its underbits with the GT 4-Door becoming the accomplished Top Assurance Aces accolade from IIHS.
Fuel Economy ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 4/10
Don’t let the GT 4-Door’s boilerplate account in this class fool you. The 53’s agent does a arresting job accouterment as abundant ability as it does with a almost low carbon footprint. The Environmental Protection Agency ante the GT 53 4-Door at 19 afar per gallon in the city, 24 on the highway, and 21 combined. That may not complete impressive, but it is for a cool auto that can ability 60 afar per hour in 4.4 seconds, and based on our experience, those numbers are absolutely accessible in the absolute world. Exceptional fuel, however, is a must, not aloof a recommendation.
Pricing ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 5/10
The starting bulk of a Mercedes-AMG GT 53 4-Door, which is the atomic big-ticket GT 4-Door available, is $99,000. You can kiss bristles abstracts goodbye immediately, though, because the abject bulk does not accommodate a destination allegation of $995.
Our GT 53 4-Door tester had an out-the-door bulk of $127,300 – destination included. Its about $30,000 of alternative agreeable included big admission items like a abounding covering autogenous ($4,450), that ablaze dejected matte acrylic job ($3,950), bigger 21-inch auto ($3,450), carbon cilia autogenous trim ($2,850), AMG achievement seats ($2,500), the Driver Assistance amalgamation ($2,250), and a achievement bankrupt arrangement ($1,850). That’s not alike the abounding account of options that run added than $1,000 apiece, but you get the idea: Mercedes’s archive of account isn’t a bargain one to cast through.
