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

  • Sleek styling embodies Italian design
  • Raspy V8 engine sounds wonderful in all conditions
  • Lacks many of today's driver safety aids
  • Interior design is dated
  • Backseat space is limited
  • All-wheel drive isn't offered
  • Nerissimo appearance packages now available
  • Sport package includes newly available carbon-fiber hood and 20-inch wheels
  • Coupe body style no longer available
  • Part of the first GranTurismo generation introduced for 2007

Overall rating

The same Maserati GranTurismo convertible rolling off the line today is the same body style that you would have seen debut more than a decade ago. In the quick-moving class of high-end sport luxury cars, the Maser may as well be the Yoda of its peers.

Maserati's combination of seductive style, a visceral V8 power source and dynamic character is undoubtedly timeless. But timeless only gets you so far, especially when today's rivals offer more technology, driver aids and other modern touches. The biggest change that the GranTurismo offers for 2019, for example, is a new blacked-out styling package and the absence of the coupe body style.

We like the GranTurismo's ability to be both an agile backroads handler and a sedate interstate highway cruiser. Overall, however, we think you'll be happier with newer convertibles such as the BMW 8 Series and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

2019 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible models

The 2019 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible seats four and is available in two trim levels: Sport and MC. Both come with a 4.7-liter V8 engine (454 horsepower, 384 lb-ft of torque), a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.

Standard features on the Sport include 20-inch wheels, adaptive suspension dampers, automatic and adaptive xenon headlights, heated and auto-dimming side mirrors, and front and rear parking sensors.

Inside the cabin are leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, and a rearview camera. Tech highlights include an 8.4-inch entertainment display, Bluetooth, navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, and an 11-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.

The MC starts where the Sport leaves off. The biggest hardware change is a firmer nonadaptive suspension for sportier handling. Other upgrades include MC-specific 20-inch wheels and exterior trim, a carbon-fiber hood and chrome exhaust tips. The interior gains a microfiber suede headliner (coupe only), aluminum pedals and the brand's trident logo stitched into the headrests.

More fun begins with the GranTurismo's options sheet, where you can tailor color and interior style to taste. There are nearly a dozen different wheel choices — all 20 inches in diameter but in finishes ranging from silver to graphite to titanium — as well as varied shades of brake calipers.

Interior options include covering nearly every surface area with some form of suede or leather, contrast stitching, accent trims in wood or carbon fiber, and a half-dozen steering wheel choices. If you prefer to skip the mixing and matching, there are a handful of interior and exterior packages, including the new-for-2019 Nerissimo package, which bundles 20-inch gloss black wheels with other exterior black-out elements.

A carbon-fiber hood in choice of body color is also available (one of the priciest options on the menu), and the MC can also be specced with the Sport trim's adaptive suspension in place of the standard sport-tuned suspension if you prefer a smoother ride.

Trim tested

Edmunds has not yet driven any model of the Maserati GranTurismo convertible, but we have limited experience with earlier versions. The following is our take on what's significant about it and what you can expect.

Driving

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.

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.

Interior

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.

Utility

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.

Technology

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.

Consumer reviews

There are no consumer reviews for the Used 2019 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
