2019 Mclaren 570S Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide


CARHP Editorial Updated on: November 11, 2019


McLaren came out with the legendary F1 back in 1992. The F1 went on to take the world by storm, it was the fastest and the quickest car in the world. Over time, the F1 has solidified its name in the history books as one of the most legendary vehicles in the world. Fast forward two and half decades, McLaren has come out with the 570s as their entry-level vehicle. Often dubbed as the "Baby Mac", the 570s shouldn't be mistaken as slow or underpowered. McLaren's entry-level car can give the well-established brands a run for their money.

Expert Review


Powered by a 562-horsepower twin-turbo V8, the 570S is able to sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and reaching the top of 204 miles per hour. The 570s uses a lightweight carbon fiber Monocell that just weighs 75 Kg and provide immense rigidity. It keeps the cost low with no movable aerodynamics, nor cross linked adaptive suspension which is present in bigger Mclaren's.

The 570s rivals with Audi R8 Spider, Lamborghini Huracan Spider and Porsche 911 Cabriolet .

2019 Mclaren 570S Engine and Performance

The 562-hp twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-8 that lives in the middle of the 570S runs as if it comes from a company that competes in Formula 1which it does. Paired with a quick-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, it launchedthe lightweight 570 Swith such brute force that the muscles in our neck had a tough time coping with it- Caranddriver

Engine and Transmission

The Mclaren 520s is lighter, stronger and faster. It is the same 3.8 liter V8 used in other McLaren's which produces 562 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. The all-aluminum twin-turbocharged engine is mounted extremely low in the chassis for superb agility. The 570s is equally at home on the track as it is on the open road.

The powertrain is mated to a 7-speed Seamless Shift Gearbox (SSG) which makes most of the engine power. You can also opt for manual shifters. The gearbox swaps cogs in a blink of an eye and the power are evenly distributed over the rev range.

The 570 S produces the highest amount of horsepower and nothing comes close to it despite of smaller displacement. It wants to thrash every rival in straight line speed. Other rivals are similar in terms of total output.

Acceleration

Designed and developed in collaboration with Ricardo automotive the twin turboV8 takes less than 4 seconds to reach 60 mph and reaches the quarter mile mark under 10 seconds. Performance is nothing short of breathtaking and it reaches to a top speed of 162 miles per hour.

The McLaren 570 S is the fastest among the lot in attaining the 60 mph mark and all of the rivals are almost a second slower. The AMG GT S coupe tails the 570 S for some time.

Ride and Handling

Engineers at Mclaren wanted the 570s to easy going and forgiving on public roads yet providing mind-numbing performance on the track. The 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 delivers supercar punch with a sophisticated ride. Like the bigger McLaren's, the 570s didn't have fully active interlinked hydraulic suspension but comes with adaptive dampers and humble anti-roll bars. The Monoque is completely created out of carbon fiber and weighs just 75kg provides immense rigidity and stiffness that accounts for outstanding driving dynamics.

You can drive the 570s every day and sweep along in the whole experience of an F1 derived powertrain. The 570s uses electro-hydraulic steering which works astonishingly well with tactility and precision. The chassis has been beautifully built for composed driving. The handling is accurate with power delivery, so strong and addictive.

Braking

The Mclaren 570s is equipped with huge carbon ceramic brakes with a six piston front and four piston rear calipers. The calipers are finished in gloss black with silver McLaren text as standard. They are enough to stop you in an emergency situation either on road and track. The brake-steer applies a braking force to the inside wheels for agility. Pedal feel is hard initially but softens up gradually, the standard Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires don't provide much grip on wet roads.

2019 Mclaren 570S Fuel Economy

Supercars are not meant for fuel efficiency. Surprisingly the McLaren 570s doesn't guzzle gas like a track monster and is able to return 20 mpg combined. The fuel economy ratings are pretty good for this segment. It will not be a cheaper car to drive but earning 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highways makes the best of both words.

2019 Mclaren 570S Interior

Entering the McLaren 570S and 570GT means clambering over a wide sill. Hey, it's not a true sports car unless there's some contortion involved. Once belted in, the driver doesn't have much in the way of distraction, just a touch screen set vertically and the usual controls. But there is a lot of lateral seating support that comes into its own through tight, fast cornering - KBB

Seating and Comfort

The inside of the 570s is an ode to carbon fiber, the elegant interior architecture features the finest hand-stitched leather, satin-chrome highlights and race-bred center console. The interior follows McLaren's design philosophy of "Everything for a reason" and every curve has its purpose. It comes with a new instrument cluster and a floating infotainment screen above the transmission tunnel. Getting in and out of the car will be cumbersome but easier than in previous models thanks to a lower and narrower step in.

The seat cushions are firm with lumbar adjustment, they provide a great level of support for thighs and back. Although supportive, they are not meant for long rides as non-perforated seats doesn't breathe well. Seats can accommodate a wide variety of individual as the steering tilts and telescopes. Unless you visit the track on a daily basis, it is advised to steer clear of the one-piece bucket seats. The mid-engine is mounted so low that ensures exceptional driving dynamics and driver visibility.

2019 Mclaren 570S Exterior

The McLaren 570S and 570GT don't look so different from other McLaren cars. They all display the marque's take on the classic supercar layout. The good thing, perhaps crucial, is that they don't look like products from any other maker- kellybluebook

Dimension and weight

The Mclaren 570s fuses thrill of a supercar in stunning exterior design for optimum aerodynamic efficiency. Beautiful shrink wrapped aluminum metal panels and teardrop shaped cockpit make up for lowest drag resistance. The low stance with contoured noseand enlarged air takes with LED headlights shaped like McLaren's speed mark depicts dynamism.

McLaren's signature dihedral doors swing open to give you an effortless entry in the cabin. Starting from the front fender there are unique wing-like air intakes integrated into the rear fender to channel cool air in the engine. The teardrop shape ends into a pair of flying buttresses which links the flowing roof for an incredibly sporty look. Striking design helps in cooling of the engine which is visible under the lightweight mesh. Shaped like the Mclaren's speed mark slimline light blade LED taillights to emphasize the stretch of mesh grille. The rear design of the 570s creates a total downforce of 8 kg while the aggressive floating' diffuser enhances stability.

2019 Mclaren 570S Competition

Aston Martin Vantage Coupe

Just like the 570s, the Vantage is an entry-level Aston Martin for the enthusiast with a tight budget. It looks gorgeous and comes equipped with a 4.0 liter 503 hp twin turbo V8 mated to an eight speed automatic transmission. The striking design of the exterior continues with upscale interior material and numerous options. The 570s, unlike the vantage, is rear engine mounted supercar and proves to be a nimble handler. Both of them hails from Great Britain and comes loaded with tech and features. The Vantage will do city driving better while the 570s is a track-oriented monster.

Mercedes AMG GTS coupe

The Mercedes- Benz AMG GT coupe is powered by twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A true driver's car, the GT comes with thrilling acceleration and agile handling. It also has one of the most stylish interiors in its class. The McLaren 570s coupe is a step ahead in terms of overall performance and cabin quality when compared to the AMG GTS Coupe. The McLaren's rear-mounted engine makes up for good handling. The GT's size, however, makes it too big to be truly nimbleand it feels that way from behind the wheel.

2019 Mclaren 570S Final Verdict

McLaren's will never be cheap, but the 570 is the most economic supercar from the British manufacturer. People who thought for Porsche 911 Turbo S or Audi R8 can consider this baby Mclaren. The organic design philosophy will appeal to many and it looks like nothing else in the market. The car offers a racecar dynamics with thrilling acceleration and torque.
