Mercedes' AMG GT 4-Door ticks all the boxes for a powerful yet practical grand tourer, blending the styling of a sensible sedan and flamboyant coupe. One glance is all it takes to know that this a performance vehicle, with its aggressive front fascia and muscular shoulders exuding visual presence.

And when it comes to performance, the AMG GT 4-Door doles it out immediately and rapidly. Its 3.0-litre inline six pumps out a healthy 429bhp and 520Nm of torque, complete with a sonorous soundtrack. With its blend of on-road comfort and corner carving accuracy, the AMG GT 4-Door offers a different dynamic take on the performance sedan.
If you are looking for manic AMG properties in a four-door, the answer is the AMG GT 4-Door.

This is the four-door, five-seater, family-friendly version of the AMG GT. It only takes one glance for you to know this is a performance vehicle, as it carries all the cues of an AMG car – massive air intakes and Panamericana grille included.

Inside, the AMG GT 4-Door is surprisingly sensible and practical. It is steeped in equipment, with two 12.3-inch screens that form into a large widescreen cockpit. Beyond that, is it still a lavish cabin we've come to expect from Mercedes.

As a grand tourer, it manages to be comfortable, too. The AMG GT 4-Door gets massage seats, ambient lighting, and a highly customisable infotainment system.

It remains to offer a decent level of practicality. You get three seats in the rear, and a sizeable boot of 360 litres, with 60 litres more underneath the boot floor.

And do not forget performance, for the AMG GT 4-Door has it. The 53 model is powered by a 3.0-litre turbocharged straight six that makes 429bhp and 520Nm of torque to all four wheels.

It is a delight when driven hard. Power is doled out immediately and rapidly. Combined with its sharp, communicative steering and a well-balanced chassis, there is no doubting that it is a serious performance car.

If you want to turn down the fun, the GT 4-Door is still capable of doing the whole comfort shebang. In its most comfortable settings, the car potters down the road quietly, unfazed by bumps and undulations.

The AMG GT 4-Door ticks a lot of the right boxes. It handles well, it's comfortable, and, most importantly, it still has the genuine AMG DNA, whilst still being quintessentially Mercedes.
