- Wonderful Ferrari V-8 sound
- Intimate driving position
- Excellent steering feel
- Plush upholstery and interior materialsThe Maserati GranTurismo replaced the former GranSport model.The 2009 Maserati GranTurismo has a sleek and voluptuous silhouette, but only up close will you realize how low the front end sits and how absolutely curvaceous the sheetmetal is, especially at the front fenders. The GranTurismo is anything but slab-sided at the back as well; the rear fenders are dramatically flared, with a well-defined fender. It is design perfection.
Inside the GranTurismo, the seats and seatwells are a bit narrower than in other coupes, and the seats—which look great—actually feel a bit flat. There are officially two seats in back, but they’re just too cramped for adults, and even kids will have trouble getting in and out smoothly. The pillars slope inward aggressively to the roof, so headroom is limited, even though the driving position is low. Overall, the driving position is much friendlier for the tall and large than in Maseratis (and most Italian cars) of the past.
Despite the engine’s raucous demeanor when revved, its idle is just as smooth as that of other luxury coupes, and simply in Drive with the Sport button off, it’s a relaxed high-speed cruiser that won’t wear you down with noise and vibration.The GranTurismo’s cabin feels intimate, thanks to excellent materials and soft, minimally processed leather—not the stiff slippery kind you’ll find on mass-produced luxury coupes. Only the dull black plastic of the switchgear and audio faceplate speak otherwise. GranTurismos are built to order and highly customizable, offered with eight different upholstery colors (including the very bright-red Rosso Corallo), three different wood veneers, 10 different dash surfaces, plus a tremendous number of combinations for steering-wheel trim, carpets, and seat stitching.
While the exclusive, customizable interior and abundance of traditional luxury comforts dominate, the 2009 GranTurismo doesn’t have some of the latest high-tech factory-installed necessities like satellite radio or well-integrated Bluetooth.
- Maserati has been an automotive icon for decades, but the brand’s recent revival is epitomized by the 2009 Maserati GranTurismo, a sporty GT that features one of the sexiest and most captivating designs on the road today.Reviewers from all types of publications express unanimous approval of the exterior design of the new 2009 Maserati GranTurismo. Road & Track calls the sporty coupe a “stylish Italian grand tourer that through the judicious application of high technology has the heart of a true sporting machine.” Car and Driver reviewers simply refer to the Maserati GranTurismo as “a Modenese masterpiece.” For those not familiar with the Maserati 2009 GranTurismo, Edmunds describes it as “a four-passenger grand touring coupe available in two trim levels—base and S.” From the exterior, there is little to distinguish between the two models; Motor Trend notes that the “visual mods are subtle” and limited to “a small spoiler on the rear deck, revised rocker panels, and a black grille and headlamp casings” for the 2009 Maserati GranTurismo S. Other than those changes, Edmunds says the Maserati 2009 GranTurismo lineup “looks like nothing else on the road—in a very good way.” The word that the automotive press used most commonly used to describe the Maserati GranTurismo is “seductive”.
Car and Driver considers the “ergonomics are mostly the antithesis of Italian tradition,” with the driver placed “in proper relationship with primary and secondary controls,” although they point out that “the signal and wiper stalks were a little too far away.” Overall, however, reviewers tend to side with Edmunds, which remarks that the Maserati GranTurismo’s “leather-cased interior is warm, inviting and highly customizable,” with a “driving position [that] is first-rate.
