2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT vs. Its Competition

2020 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe competes toe-to-toe with the world’s best luxury performance sedans.

It’s closest rival in design and performance is the Porsche Panamera, which has a little more refinement and a little more performance in its top models.

The Audi S7 and upcoming RS7 are also performance-oriented hatchbacks.

They offer competitive power but not the trackworthy handling of the Mercedes.

The BMW M8 Gran Coupe is also squarely in the AMG GT’s sights.

It delivers similar luxury and performance with a similarly stylish body.

On the homefront, the Mercedes CLS-Class enjoys the same four-door coupe marketing and similar powertrains, but it hasn’t been developed with the performance focus of the AMG GT.
