Pros

  • The sleek styling embodies Italian design
  • Plentiful power and sharp handling make it fun to drive
  • Raspy V8 engine sounds wonderful in all conditions
  • Pleasant interior design and materials

Cons

  • Technologically outdated compared to rivals
  • Many features (such as a rearview camera) are not available
  • Backseat space is limited


Which GranTurismo does Edmunds recommend?

Since there's no power advantage over the GranTurismo lineup, we suggest sticking with the base Sport trim. It forgoes the exterior aerodynamic additions for a cleaner, more refined appearance, and the standard adaptive suspension delivers a more comfortable ride than the MC models.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

First and foremost, the 2017 Maserati GranTurismo is a beautifully styled touring coupe. The fact that this generation has remained in its current form for the better part of a decade is a testament to its timeless Italian design. Add in a powerful V8 engine from Ferrari and the soundtrack that accompanies it, and the GranTurismo's appeal is almost irresistible. Almost.

But the GranTurismo has fallen behind the times in a number of ways. A quick peek at the list of standard or available features will reveal a lack of modernity. Advanced safety and convenience features are nowhere to be found. The infotainment system is dreadfully outdated, and even a rearview camera is missing. In terms of performance, the GranTurismo should satisfy most driving enthusiasts, but those who list athleticism near the top of their priorities will find there are better choices.

It's very likely we're at the end of the road with the Maserati GranTurismo. With the unveiling of the Alfieri concept a few years ago, we've been expecting a replacement for quite some time. If you love the GranTurismo's current design, though, 2017 may be your last chance.

2017 Maserati GranTurismo configurations

The 2017 Maserati GranTurismo is a two-door coupe with seating for four. A convertible model is covered in a separate review. Three trim levels are offered: Sport, MC and MC Centennial. Each version features a Ferrari-sourced 4.7-liter V8 (454 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque) and a six-speed automatic transmission with manual control via paddle shifters. Power is sent to the rear wheels, and all-wheel drive is not available.

The Sport trim's standard feature highlights include 20-inch wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, front and rear parking sensors, power-folding and auto-dimming mirrors, automatic wipers, adaptive suspension dampers, a sport exhaust, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a navigation system, Bluetooth and a Bose surround-sound system with satellite radio and an iPhone interface. Options are generally limited to exterior and interior trim and color materials.

The MC trim adds some carbon-fiber bodywork, a unique front spoiler (eliminating the front parking sensors), a nonadaptive sport suspension, carbon-fiber interior trim and a simulated suede headliner. At the top of the range, the MC Centennial tacks on more carbon-fiber exterior treatments, a stiffer suspension, carbon-fiber seat frames and distinctive interior trim.

Trim tested

Edmunds has not yet driven any version of the 2017 Maserati GranTurismo, 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 time of 4.7 seconds, which is quick but not breathtaking by contemporary standards. With the adaptive suspension set in Sport mode, body roll is well managed. The nonadaptive sport suspensions on MC models are stiffer, but 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 GranTurismo uses premium materials throughout the cabin, but it trails the competition when it comes to technology. Controls for infotainment and climate have a last-decade feel, and many features aren't even offered. Backseat space is limited, making it suitable for small passengers only.

Utility

Storage is at a premium, both in the cabin and in the trunk. Narrow door pockets, small cupholders and a center armrest bin are all there is to hold your personal items. The trunk isn't huge (9.2 cubic feet), but it's decent-sized for this class of car.

Technology

A small screen with an abundance of buttons make the GranTurismo's infotainment system old by current standards. The lack of more advanced smartphone integration and advanced safety features further drive the point home.

Beautiful Italian Beast
Dr. Mark Edward Hatfield,03/01/2018
I researched this car for years before purchasing. What has emerged is an incredibly reliable automobile that has the perfect blend of refined luxury and a sensual, thrilling driving experience that you can share with another couple. The silhouette is classical pininfarini svelt. Fit and finish is superb. The cabin wraps you in fine Italian leather that fits like tailored suit. The electronics needs updating (add a backup camera and interface smart phone and you are all set) but the sound will arouse your primal instincts every time you hear it. Paint is what you expect from Ferrari and power gets to the rear wheels like a race horse claws at the ground. Destined to stand the test of time and reveal itself as a pinicle of automotive engineering.

More about the 2017 Maserati GranTurismo

The 2017 Maserati GranTurismo is one of the more attractive coupes 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. That said, the base Sport trim is our pick among the other two models, the MC and MC Centennial. This is primarily because it comes with Maserati's Skyhook adaptive suspension that allows the driver to switch between a smooth, comfortable ride and a stiffer and more performance-oriented setting. This suspension is also available on the MC trims, but at additional cost.

Other Sport trim features include 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. The MC Centennial adds more carbon fiber, a stiffer suspension and distinctive interior trim. Options throughout the lineup are generally limited to exterior and interior trim materials.

Noticeably absent are the typical advanced safety features (forward collision warning/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.

Even though the MC trims represent sportier choices, all Maserati GranTurismo models come with the same Ferrari-sourced 4.7-liter V8 that produces 454 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent through a six-speed automatic transmission on the way to the rear wheels. With this in mind, look to the base Sport trim as the ideal pick here. No matter what you like, though, use Edmunds to help you find the perfect 2017 Maserati GranTurismo.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Maserati GranTurismo?

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.
