2012 Maserati GranTurismo review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The GranTurismo is a four-seat grand touring car available as a coupe or a convertible with V-8 power. The GranTurismo competes with the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Jaguar XKR and Mercedes-Benz CL550.

(Skip to details on the: GranTurismo Convertible)

New for 2012
The 4.2-liter V-8 that was the base engine has been discontinued, leaving a 4.7-liter V-8 as the lone engine in a revamped lineup. The S coupe and base convertible come with a 433-horsepower 4.7-liter, and the new MC coupe and Sport convertible have a 444-hp version of the V-8. Maserati’s Skyhook electronically adaptive suspension is standard on the Sport convertible and optional on the MC coupe.

Exterior
Maserati teamed with Italian design studio Pininfarina to style the GranTurismo. The car features a wide oval grille, a long nose and a short rear deck. It sits low to the ground and has a sleek, road-hugging profile. Exterior features include:

  • 19-inch wheels; 20-inch wheels available
  • Three air inlets behind front fender
  • Unique aerodynamic bodywork on GranTurismo MC
  • Grille features vertical concave slats
  • Available carbon fiber exterior trim on GranTurismo MC
  • Adaptive bi-xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
  • Optional colored brake calipers

Interior
Maserati cloaks the interior in high-quality leather and wood and puts chrome accents on the dashboard. The GranTurismo seats four, and Maserati says two adults fit comfortably in the backseat. Interior features include:

  • Navigation system with 7-inch screen features a hard drive for storing music
  • Rear parking sensors standard; front sensors optional
  • Numerous interior material options, including Alcantara simulated-suede headliner and wood trim

Under the Hood
Maserati says the GranTurismo coupe can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in about 5 seconds and reach a top speed of 177 mph. Mechanical features include:

  • 433-hp, 4.7-liter V-8 on S coupe and base convertible
  • 444-hp, 4.7-liter V-8 on MC coupe and Sport convertible
  • Six-speed automatic transmission with four operating modes and paddle shifters
  • Available Skyhook adaptive suspension automatically adjusts shock-absorber firmness for different driving and road conditions

Safety
Safety features include:

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

GranTurismo Convertible
Known in most other markets as the Maserati GranCabrio, the GranTurismo convertible comes as a base model with the 433-hp V-8 or the new Sport model with the 444-hp engine. Because the convertibles weigh more, Maserati says the zero-to-60-mph acceleration drops slightly to 5.3 seconds. The top speed is 176 mph. Other details include:

  • Power-folding soft-top raises or lowers in 24 seconds
  • Performance exhaust system for Sport model
  • Optional carbon fiber exterior and interior trim available on Sport
  • Skyhook adaptive suspension standard on Sport
  • Pop-up rollover bars

5.0

Great combination of sport and comfort.

I’ve owned a 911 and several SL 550’s and this car is the perfect blend of both. No matter where I drive I get comments on the sound of the exhaust or the lines of the car.

5.0

Bullet proof, great car

Very comfortable for a sports car, very quick good ride. no mechanical issues, just normal repairs. A great sports car. I have enjoyed every minute I have owed the car.

5.0

Best Exotic Car

I had this car for about five years, and it was the ride of a life time. The exterior is so sleek and the interior is luxurious. The only thing that stunk was the streets. Where I live, the streets are terrible and I hit so many pot holes that blew my tires out. But if you life in a place with great streets, best car ever.
