Aside from the coupe roofline, the design of the forged 21-inch alloys (20-inch alloy wheels are offered as standard) and carbon ceramic brakes with bronze painted callipers catches the eye from the side.

On the inside, the four-door hybrid performance coupe features a widescreen cockpit with MBUX multimedia system and AMG-hybrid-specific display and a twin-spoke version of the AMG Performance steering wheel with AMG-specific steering-wheel buttons. As this is a performance four-door coupe, those in the back seats may also monitor the engine and performance components of the vehicle using a smaller touchscreen display.
