The 2009 Maserati GranTurismo will set you back at least $120,000, and in that rarefied price range, its features list comes up somewhat short compared to the competition.

Customization is the name of the game for the new Maserati GranTurismo, although a few standard features make their way inside all Maserati 2009 GranTurismo models. Edmunds reviewers point out that both versions of the Maserati 2009 GranTurismo include "Brembo brakes...adaptive bi-xenon headlamps with washers, foglamps, heated exterior mirrors, [and] rear parking sensors." Edmunds goes on to list "leather upholstery [and] heated power front seats with memory and dual-zone automatic climate control" among the standard features on the Maserati GranTurismo. The 2009 Maserati GranTurismo also gets a voice-activated Bose multimedia system, which is new for 2009 and comes with a 30-gigabyte hard drive and navigation function.

The only major difference in features between the Maserati GranTurismo and the GranTurismo S is that the S gets aluminum pedals underfoot and a digital tach in the forward instrument cluster. While this list is acceptable and luxurious, TheCarConnection.com's editors are disappointed that the latest in high-tech gear is conspicuously absent from the 2009 Maserati GranTurismo's otherwise stellar cabin.

Maserati has always courted deep-pocketed buyers, and the 2009 Maserati GranTurismo is definitely for the well-heeled set. Considering that most Maserati buyers have cash to burn, it's no surprise that Maserati offers a number of available optional features and packages for the 2009 Maserati GranTurismo. Edmunds feels that the "options list is notable for its dizzying customization possibilities," as even the "brake calipers can be painted any of five additional colors." Maserati GranTurismos can be built to order, and they are available with "[t]en shades of skin" for the interior leather, which "can be endlessly mixed and matched," according to Car and Driver.

Conclusion

It's not as tech-savvy as a top-end Mercedes, but the 2009 Maserati GranTurismo is a wonder of built-to-order production.

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.
