Car and Driver



With the usual required safety gear in place, the 2012 Maserati GranTurismo coupe and convertible have a few additional helpers in place to prevent or mitigate accidents, but they don't have any real crash-test data yet in their corner.

For a few reasons, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has performed their battery of tests on the GranTurismo. Primarily, the low production numbers are behind the decision, but the car's luxury pricetag is also a factor. Exotic-car buyers can be nonchalant about test scores too, so the lack of numbers isn't out of the ordinary--and it's not likely to change any time soon.

The GranTurismo lineup does have the usual assortment of front and side airbags, stability control and anti-lock brakes. Convertibles also get pop-up rollover bars that deploy in case an accident threatens a rollover accidents. The stability control is tuned for more wheelspin when Sport mode is engaged on models offering it. Rear parking sensors are standard equipment and front sensors are available--except on the MC, where neither are offered--but there's no rearview camera, and the GranTurismo could use one, since its low seating position makes rearward visibility a challenge even in the convertible.

Conclusion

The Maserati GranTurismo has the safety equipment you'd expect--but it doesn't yet have official crash-test scores.

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.
