Obviously, the Grancabrio is not a cheap car, although prices for similarly exotic brands start at much the same level. Those that can afford to buy it can afford to run it, too, but the bills they’ll pay will be high. Average fuel economy, for instance, falls well short of 20mpg. Maserati claims resale values will be better than on an equivalent Aston Martin or Porsche 911.
Maserati Grancabrio quality & reliability
Maserati admits its build quality isn't quite at German levels, and you’ll see evidence of this in the Grancabrio: some of the minor controls look cheap. However, the cabin has a charming, hand-built quality and feels like it’s been put together with care. Reliability hasn't always been the Italians' strong suit, either, but Maserati says there’s less to go wrong with the Grancabrio than with previous Maseratis.
Maserati Grancabrio safety & security
There's not much to fault here. The Grancabrio has all the electronic stuff that might help you to avoid an accident and the latest airbag and belt-pretensioner technology to protect you if one becomes unavoidable. A vehicle-tracking system with automatic driver recognition and remote inhibitor back up the immobiliser and alarm to ward off thieves.
