The GranTurismo sports car has made a triumphant return for the 2024 model year, matching old-school and new-school Maserati designs. sat down with MC20 Sports Car In the Maserati lineup, the GranTurismo is offered with a different version of that car’s white-hot Nettuno twin-turbo V-6 engine. The GranTurismo is also offered as a fully electric model GranTurismo Folgore, which we review separately. We also expect a convertible version – called the GranCabrio – but probably not until the 2025 model year. All the gasoline-powered models come with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. No matter the powertrain, the Gran Turismo impresses with its dual nature, offering luxury-car features as well as sports-car-like performance and driving pleasure.
What’s new for 2024?
The GranTurismo will be all-new when it goes on sale in 2023, marking the return of the nameplate that’s been missing from the Maserati lineup since the 2019 model year.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
The GranTurismo is offered in base Modena and performance-oriented Trofeo trims and we’d go with the latter. The Trofeo comes with more horsepower and includes unique forged wheels, an electronic-locking differential, and racer-looking exterior and interior design elements.
Engine, Transmission and Performance
The GranTurismo gets a detuned version of the MC20 sports car’s twin-turbo V-6 engine. The entry-level Modena trim makes 483 horsepower but upgrading to the Trofeo boosts power to 542 ponies. Both models are capable of quiet and comfortable cruising. The engine is both characterful and sweet, and its unique twin-combustion design has its roots in Formula 1 racing. The most powerful GranTurismo model will be the all-electric Folgore (reviewed separately) which makes a combined 750 horsepower from its three electric motors. All gasoline-powered GranTurismo models come standard with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive; A manual transmission is not offered. With the drive mode set to Comfort, the standard air suspension absorbs bumps well and provides a smooth, even ride. In Sport mode, the Gran Turismo transforms into a more focused sports car, with firmer suspension settings, heavier-weighted steering and a more baritone exhaust note emanating from the tailpipes. With its launch control function engaged, Maserati claims the 483-hp GranTurismo Modena is capable of 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds, which is only slightly faster than the more powerful and lighter MC20 on our test track. 0.5 sec is slow; The 542-hp Trofeo model has a claimed zero-to-60-mph time of 3.5 seconds. While the GranTurismo’s chassis is dynamically well sorted, we wish its brakes inspired more confidence, as the car we drove for our initial test drive had good braking performance, despite what looked like Had lame-feeling pedals. We’ll update this story with test results when we get a chance to drive the GranTurismo on our home turf.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
More details about the GranTurismo’s fuel economy will be revealed closer to the car’s on-sale date, and we’ll update this story with information as it becomes available. Once we get a production model to test, we’ll also put it through our 75-mph highway fuel economy test and report our findings. For more information on fuel economy of the GranTurismo, see EPA website,
Interior, Comfort & Cargo
The GranTurismo is a two-door, two-plus-two four-seater with a tiny rear seat that’s about speed as well as luxury. The cabin is draped in high-end materials and upscale finishes, and Maserati built in plenty of convenience features throughout the design. The comfortable front seats and good outward visibility make the GranTurismo easy to live with on a daily basis and will adjust to a long drive. Back seat space is a bit more generous than the previous generation model, but it’s still the best place for kids or handbags. The trunk appears large enough to stuff a weekend trip, but we’ll test to see how many carry-on suitcases it can fit when we get the Gran Turismo in our office. When the GranCabrio launches, expect the car’s trunk capacity to drop as it makes room for a folding fabric roof.
Infotainment & Connectivity
Maserati’s latest infotainment system – a Google-based system that debuted on the Grecale – is also offered as standard on the new GranTurismo. The 12.3-inch touchscreen is centrally placed on the dashboard, flanked by a smaller 8.8-inch display to handle climate control settings. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration are included and work wirelessly. A heads-up display provides at-a-glance information such as speed and navigation directions in the driver’s line of sight. Italian audio tuner Sonus Faber built the Gran Turismo’s stereo system, which includes up to 19 speakers.
