Which GranTurismo Convertible does Edmunds recommend?
With just two trim levels to choose from, there's not much to agonize about. We say just go with the Sport. It'll save you a decent chunk of change compared to the MC, and it comes with all the important features you need. You can still spec the Sport with most of the MC's standard color and trim upgrades but at a lower cost. More importantly, the Sport comes with an adaptive suspension that delivers a more compliant ride quality.
Edmunds' Expert Review

- Interior design is dated
- Backseat space is limited

- Coupe body style no longer available
- Part of the first GranTurismo generation introduced for 2007
Maserati claims a 0-60 mph sprint of 4.7 seconds, which is quick but not competitive compared to the acceleration of rival luxury sport convertibles. Handling is capable and enjoyable. The nonadaptive sport suspensions on MC models are stiffer at the expense of comfort.
The adaptive suspension is compliant enough in Comfort mode to smooth bumps in the road. The stiff sport suspension on the MC trims may ruin the ride. The front seats are aggressively bolstered but well-shaped and padded for comfortable touring.
The cabin uses premium materials throughout, and the 8.4-inch entertainment display should be easy to use. Other interior controls look and feel as if they're from the last decade, and many expected features aren't even offered. Backseat space is limited, making it suitable for small passengers only.
Storage space is small, both in the cabin and in the trunk. The narrow door pockets, small cupholders and a center armrest bin are all you get to hold your personal items.
The 8.4-inch entertainment display includes standard support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Rival luxury convertibles offer more modern infotainment, however. Also, the GranTurismo still lacks advanced driver aids such as forward collision warning and lane keeping assist.
