Parkers overall rating: 4.1 out of 5 4.1

It’s unlikely to ever be tested by Euro NCAP due to its low volume nature, but Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe safety is likely to be rated highly – the firm simply doesn’t make unsafe cars. And while many cars make do with just a driver’s side kneebag, the AMG GT even has one on the passenger side. There’s front and side airbags (head and pelvis) for both occupants too.

Should you wish to avoid an impact in the first place there’s carbon ceramic brakes fitted as standard, alongside Adaptive Brake Assist to improve reaction times and pedal pressure under extreme situations. Traction and stability control should help you keep your AMG GT on the blacktop too.

And if you’re not paying attention the Driving Assistance Package includes adaptive cruise control and Collision Prevention Assist Plus as well as Lane Keeping Assist and Blindspot Assist. The Pre-Safe system anticipates any impact and can pre-tension the seatbelts, move the passenger seat into a safer position and close the windows too.

Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe: will my family fit?\

You’ll have to put you kit in the boot, as space inside the cabin is distinctly lacking; the glovebox is small and the door pockets ridiculously slim. There’s a pair of cupholders forward of the gearlever, and a small lidded cubby behind it, but after those that’s your lot.

And while there’s ample head and legroom, the wide transmission tunnel, thick pillars and shallow windscreen can make the cabin feel claustrophobic for occupants.

 


Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe: will it fit in my garage?

 

The GT Coupe isn’t the easiest car to park. It’s a wide car and you’re sat very low down, which means you’re unable to see the corners of that incredibly long bonnet. The windscreen pillar is very wide too, and it’s difficult to see much out of the back window.

The precise size of your GT depends on the specification. The faster models – the GT C and GT R – have a bigger gap between the wider rear wheels for better traction, are lower and have extended bodywork for improved aerodynamics. This means they’re wider, longer and lower than the standard GT Coupe.

However, the bigger models also come with parking sensors and a reversing camera as standard, which goes some way to alleviating this problem. 

 


 

Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe: will my luggage fit?

If you’re hoping to regularly carry lots of luggage might we suggest a Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate may be a better bet, but if you’re hoping for just a long weekend away Mercedes-AMG GT practicality might surprise you. For a start this sleek coupe is endowed with a large tailgate and a long, flat 285-litre boot space. Forego the use of the luggage cover and pack it to the window and you’ll add another 65 litres to that tally.

It’s worth noting folding the rear seats of a Porsche 911 and using the extra space provided makes it slightly more capacious – and the AMG GT is a strict two-seater only.
