2010 Maserati GranTurismo vs. Its Competition

2010 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible (GranCabrio)
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The 2010 Maserati GranTurismo is big, powerful, and extremely comfortable.

The stunning tourer has the heart of a Ferrari but without the exorbitant price tag of its fellow Italian rivals, though it’s hardly what you would call affordable.

The Jaguar XKR probably comes closest in terms of dynamics and performance but costs tens of thousands less.

The Ferrari California is also very similar to the GranTurismo in terms of specs, but its price tag is much higher and most find its styling less appealing.

The Porsche 911 is more for performance buffs who appreciate the precision engineering and the unique driving experience that only a Porsche can deliver.

For buyers on a smaller budget, Audi’s S5 offers similar V-8 grand touring performance and an equally nice interior but a price tag that’s almost half that of the Maserati.
