The AMG GT platform from Mercedes-Benz and the Affalterbach is special, and visibly promising. However, this year they decided to revamp the E-class platform to fit two massive engines and bring a lot more performance to the fore. The usage of the platform allowed for the creation of a four door supercar, one that houses a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 that varies in tune depending on the variant. The 4-door coupe is perplexing nomenclature. Not only does it confuse us as to exactly what Mercedes-Benz have tried to do here, but brings us trouble when it comes to finding like-for-like comparisons.

Overall Rating


Nevertheless, in today’s vast automobile market, there are rivals for almost every type of vehicle possible. The 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Sedan goes up against the likes of the 2019 Porsche Panamera Turbo, 2019 BMW M5, and the Audi RS 7. Starting at around $135,000, the GT 63 sedan brings plenty of features and driving technology to one-up the highly capable competition. While the sedan/ 4-door coupe is not based on its namesake GT Coupe, it shares active driving features with it, such as rear-wheel steering and a ‘drift’ setting added to the driving modes.

The limited list of trim levels makes for a tough decision as there is loads of money involved in making such a decision. Mercedes-Benz does make it easier by providing a different set of features for the S trim, along with allowing the engine a higher state-of-tune. The base trim on the other hand, brings less value for money to the table, but is the better option for someone looking to own an all-round performance sedan that is bound to offer luxury in bundles as well. If you are looking to tear up the track every weekend, the AMG GT 63 S is for you, otherwise the Base variant of the 4-door coupe should suffice.

2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Engine and Performance

9.9/10

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Sedan is a beast of awkward proportions, especially when you consider it is essentially an E-class redesigned to fit a fat four liter V8 that is bolstered by a twin turbo setup. In the base variant, the engine produces 577 horsepower, while producing 630 horses under the S guise. Some would call this a late response to the groundbreaking BMW M5 CS, but there wouldn’t be a point in picking such a fight when the M5 is set to receive a fresh batch of upgrades soon. 

All the four door performance sedans are powered by V8 engines of similar displacement of around four liters. The BMW M5 has a slightly larger engine than the rest, and churns out the most horsepower to show for it. The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S does have a higher power output than all of them, but the base AMG 63 remains limited in horsepower. It does however, produce best in class torque figures.

Despite being the most expensive in the comparison, the 2019 Porsche Panamera Turbo has the lowest power output and mediocre levels of twisting force. That being said, the Porsche is definitely the best handling car in the segment, a characteristic of the Stuttgart motorsport marque. The strong engines might give the competition an edge in the straights, but the Panamera Turbo is quite easily the fastest through corners, owing to its weight distribution. The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 sedan provides well-rounded engine figures with regards to rivals.

Acceleration

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 sedan is absolutely rapid, thanks to a slick shifting 9-speed automatic transmission that effortlessly puts every one of those 577 horses to the wheels with optimum traction. The 4-door coupe jets to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds, and doesn’t lose any grunt over a quarter mile, completing the latter in 11 seconds flat. The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 achieves these figures without being tuned purely for speed, as the AMG GT 63 S is the more speed-friendly variant between the two. That being said, the BMW M5 beats the Benz from 0-60 mph and over a standing quarter mile, completing both in 3.2s and 10.9s respectively

BMW and Mercedes-Benz have been rivals for a long time now, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there are such fine margins separating the M5 and AMG GT 63 - both flagship performance sedans of their own. Audi and the Audi-owned Porsche don’t do too well against the other two, as they match one another from 0-60 mph, and the Audi RS 7 gets ahead towards the end of a quarter mile. Unfortunately for Porsche, the Panamera Turbo places last when it comes to straight line speed in such fierce competition.

Braking and Handling

When sedans that seat up to four people in full comfort can accelerate almost as fast as a bullet, it is imperative that we endow them with adequate braking power. These sedans house massive disc brakes on all four wheels, and make use of various technologies and ideas to ensure temperature regulation for extended track use. The AMG GT 63 S uses more track-focused components, while the base variant is overshadowed by the likes of Porsche and their ceramic coated brake discs. Unfortunately we did not get a chance to measure the brakes, nor test the braking capabilities of the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 sedan.

As the lightest vehicle in the segment, the BMW M5 uses its cross-drilled and ventilated discs excellently, to decelerate from 60 to 0 in a mere 97 feet, thumping the competition. It even beats the likes of the Porsche Panamera Turbo, which is clearly the most track-ready of the lot with its 16.1” front discs. The Audi RS 7 would do a lot better with larger brakes, but the current setup is by no means weak, stopping the 4500 pound heavy sedan from 60 miles an hour in just 111 feet.

2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Fuel Economy

6.0/10

The V8 engine isn’t exactly known to be very economy friendly and even two turbochargers can’t help their case much. The city fuel economy tends to take a hit with such engines, and the AMG GT 63 is no different, offering 15 miles per gallon in urban limits. A 20 mpg highway economy figure makes for a combined 17 mpg, matching the BMW as the least efficient of the segment.

The Audi RS 7 does slightly better than its rivals on the highway, offering a healthier 24 mpg. THe 14 miles per gallon it offers in the city brings the combined mpg figure down to 19, slightly better than the AMG GT 63. Lastly, the Porsche Panamera Turbo finds itself in a place Porsche would never expect to be in, as the most efficient car in this list. Offering 18 and 25 miles per gallon on city roads and highways respectively, the combined mpg of 21 puts the 2019 Panamera Turbo at the top of the list strictly in terms of fuel economy.

2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Interior

9.9/10

Mercedes-Benz is synonymous with comfort, and has been so for the last two decades. Offering breakthrough levels of comfort and convenience in their vehicles year after year, their interiors are thoroughly checked for quality, and are often designed quite futuristically. The interior of the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 is no different. The cabin is well-lit and has plenty of sporty accents to make up for a more apt atmosphere. The materials used are of utmost quality, and the seats are the perfect blend of firm and supple, good enough to hold you in place comfortably as you push the sedan through the occasional fast corner. The exterior design and interior layout do the 4-door coupe no favours when it comes to interior space. The rear seat is only slightly cramped, but the cargo space offered is abysmal, making the rear seats the next best option for storage.

The only usable 5-seater here is the 2019 BMW M5. It has a much more spacious rear seat than the AMG GT 63, although the Audi RS 7 does offer more rear legroom than all its rivals. The Mercedes-Benz and BMW go toe-to-toe in terms of front seat interior dimensions, and the RS 7 is a much more low-slung sedan as seen in the 36.9 inches of headroom in the front seats.

Infotainment 

The 2019 AMG GT 63 4-door coupe infotainment is spearheaded by a 10.25 inch touchscreen infotainment system that runs the trademark MBUX software that learns your preferences over time for a better user experience. It is connected to a premium 14-speaker setup, and other features include:

  • Hands-Free Bluetooth Interface
  • 5 USB Ports
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • MBUX
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration
  • AM/FM/HD Radio
  • Inductive Wireless Charging with NFC Pairing

Cargo capacity

As we have already mentioned before, the AMG GT 63 provides very poor cargo space, as a result of its 4-door coupe design. Most coupes and roadsters need the rear seat for storage purposes and the case seems to be the same for the AMG GT 63, despite it having four doors. There is room for 10.1 cubic feet of storage volume in the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Sedan, which is next to nothing.

The BMW M5 and Audi RS 7 offer sedan-like practicality, while the Panamera makes use of its awkward hatchback to increase storage room to a usable 17.6 cubic feet. The AMG GT 63 sedan is the least practical of the lot, by generous margins too. The lack of storage room in the Benz makes the competition look much better than it should.

2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Exterior

9.9/10

The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 doesn’t look like a stipped down performance vehicle, and it isn’t one. Weighing in at 4343 pounds, the 4-door coupe shows typical grand tourer characteristics in its heavy weight, strong engine, and settled ride quality. The heavy body makes for a planted ride that can get uncomfortable over sharp bumps, but is otherwise can’t be complained about.

As far as exterior dimensions are concerned, the competition is pretty close to one another. Similar curb weight, ground clearance, height, and wheelbase are all characteristic of performance-oriented machines. The BMW M5 shows its pure sedan body style with the longest wheelbase and tallest stance. The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 is far from practical in its design, but its exterior dimensions make for an exciting drive, while it is easily the most gorgeous of the lot.

2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Safety

9.0/10

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Sedan is built to seat four passengers. Being capable of what it is, the sedan has to have enough proof of security for occupants in order to be successful. While expensive vehicles such as these don’t get crash tested, Mercedes-Benz is offering plenty of safety technology to ensure occupant protection and crash avoidance, although the luxury vehicle manufacturer has decided to put a hefty price tag on safety tech.

2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Competition

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Sedan vs 2019 BMW M5 

The BMW M5 is arguably the pioneering vehicle of the high performance sedan segment. Sure the segment has existed for quite some time, but the M5 achieved what it has several years ago, setting the standard for performance and practicality in this segment. While Mercedes-Benz has done well to achieve similar performance figures, it can be argued that the Bavarian outfit is still far ahead of its rival as it offers plenty of practicality too. The BMW M5 beats the GT 63 sedan with what it offers, while the price is just too good for the fight it puts up against the AMG GT 63 S. 

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Sedan vs 2019 Porsche Panamera Turbo

The Panamera Turbo is widely known for its handling and performance, while its luxury quotient has never been questioned till date. One of the best designed vehicles this industry has ever seen, the Porsche sedan/hatchback offers an excellent driving experience while maintaining adequate levels of luxury. 

The AMG GT 63 on the other hand, prioritises luxury and performance in a more hand in hand fashion compared to the Porsche. That being said, both are on equal footing due to the constraints they have as vehicles, in terms of practicality and longevity as well. 

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Sedan vs 2019 Audi RS 7 

The AMG GT 63 is an iconic vehicle already, due to its out of the box design and styling. The E-Class platform is a versatile one and Mercedes-Benz have proven this by producing a vehicle instantly capable of putting up a fight against the legendary RS 7 sedan, which has been providing cutthroat performance for quite some time now.

2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Final Verdict

8.8/10

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Sedan is a confusing proposition for any simple-minded buyer. Fortunately for the manufacturer, the price range it is offered in sees plenty of eccentrics and eccentricities alike. The lack of practicality in the vehicle is alarming, but it is easily one of the best vehicles to drive fast in total comfort, which can’t be said for most performance vehicles. More often than not, the exhilaration outweighs the luxury, and while that is fun, it isn’t particularly relaxing for the body. The AMG GT 63 changes that, offering a brilliant ride at all almost all speeds.
