The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT started out for the 2016 model year as a two-seat coupe but has since grown to include a convertible and a four-door sedan. It’s a broad and somewhat confusing lineup given the different body styles, trim levels and engines, but ultimately all you need to know is that this is Mercedes’ most sport-oriented model.

The sedan version blends the low-slung lines of a coupe with the practicality and comfort of a traditional four-door sedan. Even with its new-for-2021 AMG GT 43 trim, this sedan puts sporty driving at the forefront of the experience. Another addition for 2021 is Mercedes-Benz’s newest MBUX infotainment system, which is something last year’s model sorely missed.

Competition comes mainly from other German sedans with similar coupe-like styling. This lineup of fashionistas include the Audi S7 and RS 7, BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe and M8 Gran Coupe, and the Porsche Panamera. Which one will fit you best? Read our Expert Rating below to get our take on the AMG GT’s greatest hits and misses.
