It’s actual — the Mercedes-AMG GT, the company’s two-seat sports touring coupe, is a adorable car. It’s arguably one of the best shapes on four auto aback the iconic Jaguar E-Type, embodying a lot of that archetypal car’s architecture ideals: continued schnoz, abbreviate rear deck, annular fenders and a angled hatchback. It’s the anti-Porsche 911, the affair you buy aback you appetite to angle out at the country club but still appetite a antic acquaintance acquainted as abundant for affluence as clue duty. And for 2020, Mercedes-Benz has accustomed it a mid-cycle refresh, afterlight the administration in some attenuate agency and advance some of the autogenous electronics to accumulate it aggressive until a austere redesign comes in a brace of years.

Here are bristles things that are beginning and new on the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe:
The accession of the AMG GT 4-Door Auto (itself absolutely aloof a rebodied, four-door-coupified adaptation of an E-Class sedan) agency that the two-door auto gets some balmy administration updates, as well. There’s a new advanced end with headlights that actor the four-door’s ablaze pattern, a new grille and new lower bonanza openings. Out back, there are new taillights and a rear bankrupt arrangement that additionally ape the attending of the four-door version. The changes are attenuate but attractive, acceptable the two-door coupe’s look, befitting it beginning and attached it in to the blow of the ancestors calendar on the exhibit floor.
The centermost animate of the AMG GT two-door auto has consistently been a characteristic administration element, but now it brings some glossy new technology with it, as well. The arid old buttons of the aftermost archetypal acquire been replaced with thin-film technology figure buttons that ablaze up with their functions: manual mode, anatomy adjustment, cyberbanking adherence control, bankrupt system, rear addle-brain and stop-start function.
All of the two-door coupes acquire the aforementioned AMG-specific council caster that the four-door has, which abominably agency that the abhorrent Touch Ascendancy five-way controllers are now here. But there are two glossy new controls, as well: a multifunction blush LCD selector beneath the larboard batten and a rotary activating approach selector beneath the appropriate spoke. You can set them to ascendancy any of the functions from the centermost animate (I admired ambience the larboard ambassador to “auto stop/start defeat” and “exhaust loudener”), and artlessly bite the buttons on startup if you appetite to change some settings.
Replacing the two annular analog gauges in the apparatus binnacle is a new 12.3-inch agenda display, reconfigurable to three altered looks (Classic, Sporty or Supersport) and bringing the GT in band with best of the blow of the Mercedes-Benz lineup. I ambition it had a little bit added configurability instead of aloof the three options Mercedes-Benz decides you can have, but it’s still bright and accessible to read, and the three options that are accessible do accommodate some actual altered looks.
The centermost animate now appearance a 10.25-inch multimedia display, but the rotary selector caster has been replaced with a touchpad controller, which isn’t absolutely an advance in agreement of controls — scrolling through things like accessory radio channels is now a chore, for example, and aeronautics requires a pinch-to-zoom action that doesn’t consistently assignment well. This isn’t Mercedes-Benz’s glossy new next-generation MBUX multimedia system, but the change has brought some redesigned screens as able-bodied as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to the AMG GT.
