Which GranTurismo does Edmunds recommend?

Of the two body styles and their respective trim levels, we recommend the coupe and the base Sport. It's less expensive than the MC, and comes with all the important features you'll need. The costlier MC isn't very different when it comes to hardware, and you can spec the Sport with most of the color and trim upgrades that are standard on that model. Most importantly, the Sport comes with an adaptive suspension that provides a more compliant ride quality.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

Available as a coupe or convertible, the two-door, four-seat 2018 Maserati GranTurismo is best described as a grand touring car. It occupies the center of a Venn diagram representing both luxury and sport. Its interior boasts extended leather upholstery and other high-quality materials while its engine, a 454-horsepower non-turbocharged V8, comes from Ferrari.

The GranTurismo, however, went on sale more than 10 years ago. It's received a few updates over the years, including this year, but it still lacks the advanced safety and assistance features you'll find on competitors. A lot of its switchgear just looks old, and performance is also underwhelming.

There's certainly some emotional appeal to the GranTurismo. It looks great and its V8 sounds amazing. But we don't think that's enough to overcome this model's significant drawbacks.

2018 Maserati GranTurismo configurations

The 2018 Maserati GranTurismo is a two-door, four-seat coupe or convertible that's available in two trim levels. The base Sport is more comfort-oriented, while the MC's firmer suspension and carbon-fiber trim give it a racier feel. Each version features a 4.7-liter V8 (454 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque) and a six-speed automatic transmission. The GranTurismo is only available in rear-wheel drive.

The base Sport has 20-inch wheels, adaptive suspension dampers, adaptive xenon headlights, power-folding and heated auto-dimming mirrors, and front and rear parking sensors. The interior boasts leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, and a rearview camera. The new 8.4-inch entertainment display offers Bluetooth, navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, and satellite radio. The standard Harman Kardon stereo plays through 10 speakers.

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 headrests.

Most features that come standard on the MC, such as the fixed suspension and carbon-fiber trim, are optional on the Sport as well. You can also opt for the softer adaptive suspension on the MC if you prefer a smoother ride. Other options include wheels, brake caliper colors and interior trim.

Though the convertible models have different interior appointments, their features are largely the same as the coupe's. Exceptions include the absence of the optional fixed suspension for the Sport and the standard carbon-fiber hood for the MC, though you can opt for the latter in a Trofeo appearance package. Convertible models come standard with an automatically deploying roll bar.

Trim tested

Edmunds has not yet driven any model of the 2018 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 sprint of 4.7 seconds, which is quick but not competitive compared to the acceleration of rival luxury sport coupes or 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 new 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, suitable for small passengers only.

Utility

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

Technology

This year's upgrade to a modern 8.4-inch entertainment display brings many benefits, including standard support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The only thing remaining absent is a suite of advanced driver aids that you'll find from competitors.

Maserati GranTurismo vs. Mercedes-Benz S-Class

While it commands a higher price, the AMG S 63 coupe offers more modern features and a greater variety of options. Its twin-turbo V8 doesn't have the pedigree of the Maserati's engine, but with 603 horsepower, it's vastly more powerful. Standard all-wheel drive is another bonus for the S-Class.

Maserati GranTurismo vs. BMW M6 Gran Coupe

Though not technically a coupe, the four-door M6 Gran Coupe offers a similar mixture of luxury and sport. The BMW costs a bit less and offers both modern safety equipment and more power from its twin-turbo V8. As a sedan, it has a lot more room for rear passengers. And, for the driving purists out there, the M6 is also available with a manual transmission.

Maserati GranTurismo vs. Porsche 911

The 911's options list boasts broader color and trim customization, including custom paint and leather. It has more available features too, ranging from those that enhance performance to comfort features such as ventilated seats. Along with a convertible body style and a seemingly endless array of variants, the 911 also offers all-wheel drive and a manual transmission.

More about the 2018 Maserati GranTurismo

Whether coupe or convertible, the 2018 Maserati GranTurismo is one of the more attractive vehicles to grace the streets. Its styling is certainly distinctive. But it's also a familiar shape — the current-generation GranTurismo has been around for over a decade now without a full redesign. Not surprisingly, 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 of the two available trim levels. 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 more expensive MC, but at an 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 Harman Kardon surround-sound system. The MC trim adds some carbon-fiber bodywork and interior trim, along with a unique front spoiler. Options throughout the lineup are generally limited to exterior and interior color and 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 items such as adaptive cruise control and ventilated seats.

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. No matter what you like, though, use Edmunds to help you find the perfect 2018 Maserati GranTurismo.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 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.
