2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door review: GT 63 S


And, while it’s all good fun using the paddle-shifters, left to its own devices in Sport+ you’re probably going to be quicker, such is the effectiveness of this transmission to sync with your driving style.

That’s all well and good, but this is a heavy car and there’s no stopping physics when it comes to tucking this thing into the fast, flowing bends we encountered on the road loop. Although, AMG has a thoroughly good go at it by employing an arsenal of corner-carving technology to the cause.

Working in concert with its fully variable all-wheel drive, the GT 4-Door also gets active rear-axle steering, which has the effect of feeling more alive and responsive, especially on turn-in. It’s not always noticeable, though, like other systems we’ve tried that seem far more intrusive. The AMG system seems to work its magic in the background and it’s very effective.
