Expert Quotes:

It’s more spacious than most others (even if the trunk is tiny)
Car and Driver

What hasn’t changed is the interior room—the Maserati GranTurismo Convertible is a full 4-passenger vehicle with plenty of space in the rear.
Road & Track

Rear seats provide ingress and egress with relative ease. Although the seat can hold two adults, it is not what one would consider roomy.
MSN Autos

The firm but comfortable seats remain the same as the base coupe’s, partly because Maserati doesn’t see itself as a carbon-fiber-race-bucket-type of automaker, and partly because of the high cost of re-crashing the car for federal certification, a requirement when you swap out the seats.

Two golf bags may fit in the trunk, but not big ones
Consumer Guide

A gentleman's GT from nose to tail, the 2012 Maserati GranTurismo is a rare luxury two-door, one with just enough room for four adults to take in the sensory delights.

At 192.2 inches long, with a 115.8-inch wheelbase, the Maserati's a bit larger than its European competition. It's a long-distance cruiser, too, since the power front seats aren't the fussy carbon-fiber variety you'd find in a more overt sports car. They're firm and a little narrow across the shoulders, but the GranTurismo's seats fit bigger frames just fine. Leg and head room are fine, not particularly expansive until you compare it with more exotic sports cars sitting just above its price point.

The back seat? It can feel a little confining, and the tallest passengers won't be quiet about the accommodations for long. Most everyone else will be able to make do with the back-seat space, and fairly long doors make the rear seats fairly easy to clamber into. Most other GTs don't even offer the rear seats, but the GranTurismo's usable rear buckets are one of the better reasons to opt for it over the likes of the Jaguar XK or the Mercedes-Benz SL.

Cargo space is moderate. Maserati claims a pair of golf bags will fit; for non-golfers, think more like a pair of roll-aboard bags and some soft-sided luggage. At 6.1 cubic feet, the trunk's about the same size as the one in the Mercedes-Benz SLS roadster and gullwing. It's not tremendous--but Maserati will sell you a custom-made, custom-fitted set of luggage to take up every cubic inch.

 

 

Conclusion

The Maserati GranTurismo's classy interior has room for adults, even in back, and surrounds them in beautiful materials.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
