Car and Driver

At this price point, buyers aren't comparing crash-test scores, so it's no surprise that neither NHTSA nor the IIHS has crash-tested the 2009 Maserati GranTurismo.

In keeping with domestic safety standards, the 2009 Maserati GranTurismo sports a full complement of airbags. The inflatable protection includes both front-seat side airbags and side curtain airbags. Edmunds also reports that the Maserati GranTurismo "comes standard with antilock brakes, [and] stability control." While the stability control might not be as advanced as those on some competitors, it does allow for quite a bit of fun behind the wheel before kicking in to keep things from getting truly out of control.

Unfortunately, despite the standard safety features found on the Maserati 2009 GranTurismo, one major problem rears its head and brings the Maserati GranTurismo's score down significantly. Car and Driver reports that the "sightlines are mediocre" from the driver's seat of the 2009 Maserati GranTurismo, as they are "hindered by a small backlight and the fat A- and C-pillars." While the sheetmetal may obstruct the view in some directions, Edmunds says that parking maneuvers in the Maserati GranTurismo are made easier by the standard "rear parking sensors."

Conclusion

There are cars with more safety features, but the 2009 Maserati GranTurismo promises as much safety as most luxury sport coupes.

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.
