Mercedes-Benz seems to be on a mission to gather sales even in the most niche of market segments in the US and not be bothered by the amount of traction each product gets in their own specialized segment. Even after having a solid product like the CLS, Mercedes has added another four-door coupe to its lineup, in the form of the AMG GT 63. Despite what the name and style might suggest, it isn’t based on the iconic sports car but rather is based on the E-class. Thus, it gets better cabin space and is a high performance and better-equipped variant of the other GT 4-Door.

Keeping aside the money-making strategies of Mercedes-Benz, the GT 63 comes in two variants with the base variant being powered by the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that satisfies the cravings for insanity, as it produces a whopping 577 horses from that engine and propels the car to 60 mph in a blistering 3.1 seconds. Launched just over a year ago, there aren’t many chances for the 2020 model, and continues to carry a price tag upwards of $140,000.

Overall Rating


The AMG GT 4-Door series of cars use a front-engine layout with a rear-wheel-drive or 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system that has a rear-wheel bias. The GT makes use of a rear anti-roll bar to increase the chassis stiffness, as well as a combination of active aero setup. The aero kit includes an electronically adjustable rear spoiler and electronically operated front louvers in the front grille which can open and close to manage airflow through to the radiator, which is sourced from the AMG GT R, Mercedes’ flagship sports car.

All these performance enhancement features and the super-powerful, gas-guzzling twin-turbo V8 engine puts its rivals in the dust on a straight line, even the likes of the Porsche Panamera Turbo. It also is a much better-looking car than its competitors and is arguably the best all-around four-door GT in its segment, and that puts a lot of weight on the expectations on the shoulders of the GT 63.

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Pricing and Features

9.9/10

Mercedes-Benz sure has followed the ideology of flooding the market with multiple cars in the same segment at different price points to extract and enjoy the maximum market share, and that seems to be a smart decision. But as far as trims go, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 gets only 2 trims. 

The base trim gets almost all the features that are there to be offered on the GT, whereas the GT 63 S sees an increase in power from the same engine with a different tune and the interiors get a Dynamic Plus setting along with the inclusion of bucket seats to make it feel even more hardcore than the already ludicrously hardcore AMG GT 63.

The GT S not only adds roughly $20,000 to the price but also adds bucket seats with the signature AMG Dynamic Plus interior settings and the added power and torque to make the $160,200 price tag feel worth it. 

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

Hardcore sportscars or performance-oriented cars are never known for their value for money offering or their easy to maintain status or being reliable in the long run. They all need all the lovin’ that you can give and more, for them to be in the happiest state and perform the best. This worries a lot of buyers from the unforeseen expenses and issues that might be prevalent with such cars which might not surface while the car is under warranty. The reports on each aspect here will surely give some clarity of what the car is like to actually own and what are the expenses one can expect in the long run. 

What's the 2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Reliability ratings and Ownership costs?

J.D. Power is an international market research organization that is renowned for its reliability report of cars in the US, which is based on the honest ratings of genuine and authentic customers. But exotic cars like these are owned only by the elite and are difficult to gather test reports as the car itself is difficult to find for these tests. 

The ownership cost is a tricky job as these cars are very unpredictable as they are high-performance cars and every bit and piece of these cars are under tremendous pressure, which they were designed for, but one can never pinpoint the failure point and thus the expenses too can’t be predicted. 

What is the Warranty Coverage on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63?

Mercedes-Benz understands the worries of the buyers and knows that the only way they can lure in more and more buyers into their brand is by providing a comprehensive warranty package that offers enough that the buyers feel worth investing their time and hard-earned dollars into a car that costs a six-figure sum. 

Criteria

Period

Limited Warranty

4 years / 50,000 Miles, whichever is earlier

Powertrain Warranty

4 years / 50,000 Miles, whichever is earlier

24- hour Roadside Assistance

4 years / 50,000 Miles, whichever is earlier

The four years limited warranty and powertrain warranty is good and amongst the industry standards, while the 24-hour roadside assistance is just the cherry on top. Although a long term corrosion and perforation protection warranty would have sweetened the deal, considering the construction quality of the cars, it should not be that big of a concern.

What are the Miles per Dollar cost of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63?

Miles per dollar can be calculated by considering the expenses incurred by the car in a year and the miles driven in that particular year. Considering the $2.74 price for the premium unleaded gasoline that this engine gulps like a thirsty camel after a desert run, and roughly 12,000 miles per year running that is covered under the warranty by Mercedes, the number comes down to as low as 6.2 miles per dollar. This figure is not at all bad considering the level of performance this car has under its hood.

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Buying Advice

Since Mercedes-Benz offers the GT 63 in only two trims, it’s not that difficult to choose between them. If you have to have absolutely the best and the baddest, then the GT 63 S is the only way to go. That although adds a lot more money and also reduces the fuel efficiency figures, thanks to the added power and weight.

Thus we would recommend the base GT 63, as it gets all the features one would need with top dollar quality and finesse that Mercedes-Benz is known for and more than enough power for you to unleash, at the tap of the throttle. After all, if the base trim is good, why would one want to throw in another $40,000 for only a slight increase in the performance. 

Is buying a used Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 a good idea?

Mercedes-Benz is amongst the premium brands that tend to keep quite a bit of its original value over the period of time, and that is because of the high quality and precision German engineering from Mercedes. Considering that the GT 63 would only depreciate about 34 percent of its initial cost in the first three years, it would not be a bad option to select an older model to save yourself from the initial slumber of depreciation that every car goes through, and thereby save some money. We would recommend a 2016-2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT, that would not only cost substantially less but also be almost as good as the current car in terms of outright performance. 

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Engine and Performance

9.9/10

The engine underneath the hood of the AMG GT 63 breathes fire and can set the tarmac on fire without even breaking a sweat. The 4.0-liter V8 engine with the dual turbochargers stuffed between them pumps out a staggering 577 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque that can be further enhanced with the S trim as that adds roughly 50 more horses and 70lb-ft of torque and the number rounds up to 630 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque. All this power is put down to the asphalt via the 4matic plus all-wheel-drive system and the engine is mated to a performance-oriented AMG MCT single-clutch 9-speed automatic gearbox for quicker acceleration and enhanced overall performance.

The Porsche Panamera Turbo is the most expensive car of this lot, but has the least amount of power on offer, whereas the Audi RS7 being the cheapest is one of the most powerful cars here. Only the BMW M8 manages to touch the 600 marks here, but even the Mercedes-Benz can do better than that with the GT 63 S, which would also make it the most expensive car here. 

What is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63's 0-60 MPH Acceleration and Braking Performance?

The tremendous power and torque generated by the bi-turbo V8 from the AMG team do make the 0-60 mph runs feel like a cake-walk for the GT and one does not even realize how quickly and how fast they are going until they have a look at the speedometer on the instrument cluster. The 3.3 seconds time taken to reach 60 mph from a standstill and the 11.0 seconds flat to cross the line at the end of the quarter-mile clearly states that the GT 63 means business, when it comes to straight-line performance.

BMW M8 is the fastest to 60 mph in this comparison by just two-tenth of a second by the second-placed AMG GT 63. The Mercedes-Benz GT leads the chart here by a fraction of seconds but also has the best top speed of 202 mph. The Porsche is the slowest in all aspects of the straight-line acceleration tests while the Audi RS7 has the lowest top speed. 

Has the Ride and Handling of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 improved?

The GT 63 comes equipped with the signature AMG Sport suspension with adaptive airbags which allows it to switch between a comfortable and compliant ride and the sporty and stiff handling for optimized handling to suit the ride style and needs of the driver. When not pushing the GT to its absolute limit, the steering is direct and well-weighted and is in fact better than in some dedicated sports cars, but we aren’t a big fan of the overly-assisted set up in the comfort mode. Although the process is a little complicated, once the Drift Mode is activated, you have no power on the front axle and no traction control and makes the car slide like it’s half its weight and burns the rubber soon enough, but who cares. 

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Fuel Economy

6.0/10

Fuel efficiency is not one of the strengths of any GT coupes and the AMG GT 63 is no exception too. The EPA rated fuel efficiency of 15 mpg is a testament to the thirst this car has for premium unleaded fuel. The GT does 20 mpg on the highway while the overall combined fuel efficiency is rated at 17 mpg. The 17.4-gallon gas tank also feels on the smaller side for this gas guzzler as it manages a maximum of only 350 miles before needing to refuel, and too only on the highway runs.

Porsche is the best pick here as it not only has the best fuel economy figures but also has the largest fuel tank, which results in the best in class driving range. Others all have a similar fuel efficiency with different sized fuel tanks, but none of them can manage to come even close to the range of the Panamera Turbo

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Interior

9.9/10

Finding ugly interiors these days is difficult, considering the price point of the GT 63 and it’s even more scarce and talking about the Mercedes interiors, it’s next to impossible. Nappa leather and faux suede upholstery, and jet-engine-like air vents are just exquisite and neatly designed, while ambient lighting and a sleek and unique center console add modernity to the airy cabin. The GT 63 is marketed as a strict four-seater with individual rear seats unlike many who promise more and deliver less. The sloped roofline and coupe styling gives the car a sleek look but compromises the cabin space. The 10.1 cu-ft of the trunk at the back is also not the greatest and keeps you wanting for more.

Overall, the BMW M8 Gran Coupe has the best cabin space while the RS7 comes in at second, but it is the RS7 that has the best luggage carrying capacity. Although the BMW gets a decent-sized boot, it does not match up to the likes of the Audi and the Porsche, but Porsche suffers a lot in the cabin space and in fact, has the worst space here.

How's the 2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 infotainment system?

The infotainment system department is taken up and controlled through a 12.3-inch non-touchscreen digital display which gets a console-mounted touchpad controller. Although a touch screen panel would be missed, the system overall is pretty slick and smooth to use with great animations and graphics to compensate for the lack of a touch panel. A standard Burmester 14-speaker sound system would suffice all your needs, but the audiophiles would just go crazy for the optional 25-speaker setup with ceiling-mounted speakers that can create a truly 3D aural experience. 

  • 12.3-inch MBUX non-touch infotainment and digital instrument screen
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility
  • SiriusXM satellite radio and optional TuneIn Radio
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Complimentary MB Navigation for the first 3 years
  • Voice control

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Exterior

9.9/10

A sloping roofline that houses a traditional small sunroof and short overhangs are the most desirable design features a four-door coupe and also stands true for the GT 63. The front is dominated by the Panamericana grille alongside the gaping air dams and LED headlights and daytime running lights, which adds a bit of aggression to the otherwise sedate and calm looks of the car. 

The usual fake vents and diffuser at the back, with the extended LED tail lights which try to add an impression of width, but are compromised by the tapering trunk section. The trunk acts as a base to the adaptive rear wing that can deploy at speed or under hard braking to generate more downforce in order to keep the car steady and stable. The quad exhaust tips add a bit of flare alongside the standard 19-inch wheels which can be swapped for a larger set of 21-inch.

The AMG GT 63 is the widest and is quite low slung and is also the widest, which gives it a good looking stance. The Panamera Turbo has the highest ground clearance which adds a bit of convenience over bumps and potholes.

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Safety

9.0/10

The NHTSA and IIHS have not managed to crash-test the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 to test its structural integrity and that is because of its really high value and low sales volume. But one can definitely rely on the coveted German precision engineering, while there are other safety features and driver-assistance features that will come in handy in case things don’t go according to the plan. Mercedes never shies away from loading their cars with the latest technology and safety features, and the $140,000 GT 63 was never gonna be an exception. The list is long and here is the highlight of the most prominent features on offer here.

  • Front Collision Warning with Automated Emergency Braking
  • Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist
  • Blind Spot Monitoring System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Surround-View Camera
  • Pre-Safe System
  • Car-To-X Communication

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Competition

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Vs 2020 Audi RS7

The four rings - Audi RS7 does a commendable job to compete with the tri-star of the GT 63 but lacks behind in all aspects like the power, performance, fuel efficiency, luxurious cabin space, latest technology. Thus, it makes sense to pay the extra bucks to get a better all-around car with the GT 63. 

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Vs 2020 Porsche Panamera Turbo

The Porsche is the German brand that gives stiff competition to the AMG, although it lacks power and performance, the Panamera Turbo makes up with the practicality with its larger exterior dimensions and larger luggage carrying capacity. But the Panamera Turbo is a lot more expensive than the Mercedes and it is difficult to justify that price tag.

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Vs BMW M8 Gran Coupe

The German rivalry gets intensified as the BMW M8 Gran Coupe goes head-to-head with the GT 63 and is actually the closest competitor to the Mercedes in terms of performance and fuel efficiency. The smaller dimensions and the luxurious interiors with the latest gizmos, give an advantage to Mercedes. But the considerably lower price tag of the M8 and the immaculate driving dynamics makes it an exciting offering and one can choose between the two depending on your individual tastes.

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 Final Verdict

8.8/10

The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 is one of the most promising GT that is a perfect blend of both powerful performance and sublime luxury. The engine snarls all the way to redline to produce enough power to propel the car past the 200 miles mark, while the latest safety and technological features that are offered inside the cabin with air-suspensions make the car a relaxing and comfortable rider too. So if you are looking forward to buying a crown jewel for your garage that does not always need a track to be used completely, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 should be on top of your priority list.
