The driving position is electrically adjustable to suit all shapes and sizes. The dash layout is straightforward, too, but the stereo and sat-nav controls are fiddly. Rear visibility isn’t bad, but the thick front pillars create awkward blind spots - not good in a car that often feels all of its 4.9-metre length. The driver's seat in the Sport is firmer than in the standard model, while the MC Stradale has lightweight carbon-fibre seats that are supportive, but not particularly cushy.
Maserati Granturismo Coupe space & practicality
You can carry four adults in comfort in the Granturismo, unless you go for the two-seat-only MC Stradale. In that respect, most models are more of a rival for the Bentley Continental GT than the Jaguar XKR. What's missing is the boot capacity to cope with all the baggage they might want to take along, but an optional bespoke designer luggage set at least makes the most of every bit of space.
Maserati Granturismo Coupe equipment
There's not much you need to add to most Granturismo models, although there are plenty of (expensive) options if you insist - how about coloured brake calipers or a wooden-rimmed steering wheel? Leather upholstery, climate control, sat-nav and electrically operated everything are standard, but it's surprising that metallic paint is a cost option. Matt-finish paint is also optional, for a staggering price premium.
