- Gets newer elements inside the cabin
- Adaptive air suspension added for V8 models
It’s a blink-and-miss update, but Mercedes Benz has decided to refresh their flagship AMG for 2022 with newer goodies and an updated cabin. The 2022 AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, apart from these changes, also gets a new Manufaktur Exclusive Edition apart from newer body colours, special trims and added hardware in select models.
Changes to the inside and out of the performance sedan (yes it’s a sedan despite the ‘coupe’ in its name) include new upholstery options, trims and highlights, more choices for alloy wheels, exterior colours and a retuned suspension. Even the driving assistance systems are updated alongside the Widescreen Cockpit of the MBUX multimedia system being standard with AMG-specific displays and functions.
There are three new exterior paint options added to the line-up: spectral blue metallic, spectral blue magno (matte finish) and cashmere white magno (matte finish). And the AMG Night Package II is also on offer with its all-black theme. Interior leather trims get five new colour options in the Nappa portfolio. Also, the AMG Performance steering wheel is tweaked. Another new is the optional anthracite open-pore wood for the instrument and door panels, as well as for the centre console combined with a silver shadow surround.
Under the skin, the AMG Ride Control Plus air suspension is improved with many little changes like two pressure valves – one controlling rebound damping and the other controlling compression damping. This air suspension will be added to the V8 models.
Mercedes-AMG states that the new 2022 AMG GT 4-Door Coupe will go on sale with six-cylinder engine options this August. But the V8 models will take a bit longer to arrive at the European dealerships. Since the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is on sale in India coming as a CBU, the newer models ordered later this year should reach our shores in the MY2022 guise.
