It may be the entry-level model, but the specs of the sole Mercedes-AMG GT 43 trim still make for impressive reading. It packs a serious punch thanks to a turbocharged inline-six engine producing 362 hp and 369 lb-ft. Power is sent to all four wheels via a nine-speed automatic transmission, and the 0-60 mph mark is reached in under five seconds. In common with the other GT trim levels, no RWD configuration is available. Exterior features and specifications include a power liftgate, aggressive AMG styling like a pronounced front splitter and rear diffuser, and 19-inch AMG alloy wheels.
A 64-color ambient lighting system lights up the interior, and those in the front get heated power seats with four-way lumbar adjustment and dual-zone automatic climate control. The dual MBUX 12.3-inch infotainment displays blend into each other to create a truly immersive experience and include features such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth streaming. Driver-assistance features include attention assist, a surround-view system, crosswind assist, active brake assist, and adaptive high-beam assist. Options include four package selections and a variety of standalone extras, including ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, leather upholstery, three-zone climate control, and additional driver assists.
