The Top Gear car review:Mercedes-Benz AMG GT
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
The GT’s cabin is one of its signature features. You sit so low, with the steering wheel just where you want it and your feet way out ahead of you. The seating position is basically very good and the seats themselves are supportive, but they’re also quite unyielding. After a long drive you’ll know you’ve been sat in a high performance car and not a limo.
The interior design is very modern and attractive, with a high transmission tunnel that makes a snug cocoon of each side of the cabin. The two banks of four round buttons on the centre console cleverly evoke the layout of a V8 engine. Overall the quality is very good, although some of the optional trim can look a little cheap and brittle.
Mercedes’ infotainment system is one of the better ones out there. It’s intuitive and easy to navigate. There’s a reasonable amount of storage space in the cabin, but the boot is very shallow - that’s because the gearbox is mounted immediately below the boot floor.
