Vehicles to suit all needs.

At the 88th Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz is presenting a slew of world premieres in a clear demonstration that the brand with the three-pointed star offers vehicles to suit all needs. First to be unveiled was the all-new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé, which complements the successful AMG GT family. Also celebrating its world premiere was the new Mercedes-AMG G 63. Further highlights in Geneva include the extensively redesigned C-Class. The bestseller with the three-pointed star appears with new, even more efficient engines. Also on show for the first time is a pre-production version of the first plug-in diesel hybrid, which is set to feature in both the C-Class and the E-Class. The new Mercedes-AMG C 43 guarantees compelling performance. Plus, the presentation of smart EQ fortwo and the smart EQ forfour sees the inventor of the automobile take the next step towards the electrification of its entire model line-up by 2022.

Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé.

More space, more power, more goose bumps – the all-new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé delivers a whole new dimension of driving and expands the AMG model line-up. The new coupé is the first four-door sports car from Affalterbach and forms a direct link to the legendary and highly successful SLS and AMG GT models. A further vehicle developed entirely in-house by Mercedes-AMG, it unites unique design, excellent comfort and phenomenal sports car technology with an athletic, four-door fastback layout.


It thus offers more space and greater usability. The consistent expansion of the AMG GT family by the four-door coupé therefore opens up the sports car segment to those customers seeking a vehicle they can use every day without having to give up the unique performance of Mercedes-AMG.

Driving experience across the board.

The all-new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé delivers a very special driving experience across the board and ensures a confident and refined presence in all areas of life, with exceptional performance and a top speed of 315 km/h. Modern, powerful in-line 6 and V8 engines with a power spectrum ranging from 320 kW (435 PS) to 470 kW (639 PS) unleash completely new driving experiences and pair compelling performance figures with contemporary efficiency.

“There are enough cars out there that are a moving compromise. The all-new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé certainly is not. There’s plenty of space in the back – and plenty of performance in the front,” says Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “With the all-new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé, we are adding another great option to our portfolio. It now offers more variety and choice than ever.”


Mercedes-AMG G 63.

The G 63 underscores its unique position among performance off-road vehicles with its powerful drive, all-new AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension, AMG-specific driving programmes and new interior with an optional Widescreen Cockpit. The basis for the hallmark AMG Driving Performance both on- and off-road is the 430 kW (585 PS) 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine, the rear-biased all-wheel drive (40:60) with three differential locks, the extremely fast-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission, the double-wishbone independent front suspension and adaptive damping. The sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds is a clear demonstration of its outstanding performance credentials. The reinterpretation of the unmistakeable design sets characteristic accents with the exclusive AMG radiator grille, flared wheel arches, distinctive side pipes on the exhaust system and wheels measuring up to 22 inches.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Mercedes-Benz’s most successful model range starts its fifth year of production with an extensive array of upgrades, including stylish revisions to the exterior and interior design. The electronic architecture is completely new. The customer sees this in the user experience, with an optional fully digital instrument display and multimedia systems with tailor made information and music. The assistance systems are now on the same level as those in the S-Class.

Plug-in hybrids.

One highlight of technology and efficiency is the pre-production version of the new diesel plug-in hybrids in the C- and E-Class. It marks the first time Mercedes-Benz has paired an externally chargeable hybrid system with a diesel engine. The union of the new OM 654 four-cylinder diesel engine with the latest-generation 9-speed 9G-TRONIC hybrid transmission sets a notable technology highlight.


90 kW of electrical power, an additional 400 Nm of electric torque and electric range of around 50 km in the NEDC will raise the experience of local mobility with zero emissions to a new level.

Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC.

With four body variants, three power levels and two types of powertrain, the C-Class is Mercedes-AMG’s most multi-faceted and successful model range. Extensive upgrades make the entry-level models, C 43 4MATIC Saloon and Estate, now even more attractive. The AMG grille featuring the twin-blade design, the powerfully sculpted front skirt and the new rear skirt with round double end pipes provide visual enhancement to the new C 43 models and position them even more expressively. The interior benefits from the optional fully digital cockpit with exclusive AMG instruments and the new generation of AMG steering wheels. The 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine now produces 287 kW (390 PS). Together with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission and rear-biased AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the potent drivetrain combines agile performance with long-distance comfort.


smart EQ fortwo and forfour.

Mercedes-Benz Cars is starting its electric offensive precisely where it is most urgently needed – in the city. The smart EQ fortwo and forfour are integrated into the Mercedes-Benz EQ family with the “edition nightsky”. smart has already been designated an all-electric brand in North America, and is now following this up in Europe and the rest of the world. The aim is the electrification of everyday life – across the board. Presented in Geneva alongside smart EQ were the “smart EQ control” apps and the 22 kW rapid charger.
