2009 Maserati GranTurismo review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
The GranTurismo is a four-seat grand touring coupe with V-8 power. It replaced the aging Maserati Coupe, which first hit the road as a 2002 model. A high-performance S version is available. The GranTurismo competes with the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Jaguar XKR and Mercedes-Benz CL550.

New for 2009
The high-performance S Automatic trim features a new six-speed automatic transmission that’s claimed to make the GranTurismo a more comfortable daily driver than it was with the previous automatic.

Exterior
Maserati teamed with Italian design company Pininfarina to style the GranTurismo. The car features a wide oval grille, a long nose and a short rear. It sits low to the ground and has a very sleek profile overall.

  • 19-inch wheels; 20-inch wheels available on base, standard on S
  • Three air inlets behind front fender
  • Rear LED taillights have 96 LEDs
  • Grille features vertical concave slats
  • Chrome exhaust tailpipes
  • Adaptive bi-xenon headlights
  • Optional colors for brake calipers: yellow, silver, blue, titanium and red

Interior
Maserati cloaks the interior in high-quality leather and wood, and puts chrome accents on the dashboard. There’s seating for four people; Maserati says two adults fit comfortably in the backseat.

  • Navigation system with 7-inch screen features 30GB hard drive for storing music
  • Bose audio system with available USB input
  • Rear parking sensors standard, front sensors optional
  • Numerous interior material options, including Alcantara headliner and wood trim

Under the Hood
Maserati says the GranTurismo can accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 5.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 177 mph.

  • 405-horsepower, 4.2-liter V-8 with 339 pounds-feet of torque
  • Six-speed automatic transmission with four operating modes and paddle shifters
  • Skyhook suspension automatically adjusts shock-absorber firmness for different driving and road conditions; suspension will adjust on the fly to keep the front end from diving under braking and the rear end from squatting during acceleration

Safety

  • Antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system
  • Front and side-impact airbags

GranTurismo S
If the regular GranTurismo isn’t exotic or fast enough for you, the GranTurismo S serves as a high-performance version featuring more power, bigger brakes and exterior modifications to increase performance.

  • 433-hp, 4.7-liter V-8 with 361 pounds-feet of torque
  • Six-speed automatic transmission differs from base GranTurismo’s in a way meant to provide better daily drivability
  • Side and rear-lip spoilers add balance through aerodynamics
  • 20-inch wheels feature seven-spoke design
  • Blacked-out grille
  • Interior upholstered in leather and Alcantara

Fun exotic and you can bring the family

Car has been great to own but after 5 exotics I am burn out from car shows gatherings and such and I have lost interest in my Italian sickness. Car is fully serviced all records and new clutch so no need for anything.

5.0

Very nice car for ur lift time.

I purchased a used 2009 Maserati Granturismo with a lot of options and under 27k miles. I'm a big guy, 6'3" and big-boned, with two younger children that require car seats. There is still some room behind me with the seat backed up all of the way. The features and smart key are a nice touch. In Sport mode, the acceleration is good. I really like the looks of this car. It just stinks you have to go to the Sport or Limited model to get dark interiors, but I'll deal with it.
