The 2017 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible, or GranCabrio, is one of the more attractive convertibles to grace the streets. Its styling is certainly distinctive. But it's also a familiar shape — the current-generation GranTurismo has been around for close to a decade now without a full redesign. As such, the competition has overtaken it in performance, features and technology. The price of admission is also greater than that of rivals, and that gap widens when you attempt to outfit it similarly.
We use the word "attempt" because many of the features available in other luxury sport coupes are missing from the GranTurismo's list. But as long as you're OK with that, there's a lot to like. Our recommended trim, the Sport, features adaptive xenon headlights, front and rear parking sensors, power-folding and auto-dimming mirrors, a sport exhaust, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a navigation system and a Bose surround-sound system. The MC trim adds some carbon-fiber bodywork and interior trim and a unique front spoiler. Options throughout the lineup are generally limited to exterior and interior trim materials.
Noticeably absent are the typical advanced safety features (forward collision warning and mitigation, blind-spot monitoring, lane keeping assist) found in most other vehicles, as well as convenience and tech items such as a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, ventilated seats, smartphone integration and an up-to-date infotainment system.
All Maserati GranTurismo models come with a 4.7-liter V8. It produces 444 horsepower in the base version. All other trim levels have 454 hp. Power is sent through a six-speed automatic transmission on the way to the rear wheels. With this in mind, look to the Sport trim as the ideal pick. No matter what you like, use Edmunds to help you find the perfect 2017 Maserati GranTurismo.
