SAFETY | 7 out of 10
Since buyers at this end of the market are quite nonchalant about crash-test scores, it's no surprise that neither NHTSA nor the IIHS has crash-tested the 2010 Maserati GranTurismo.
However, in terms of safety equipment, the GranTurismo range sports a full complement of airbags. The inflatable protection includes both front-seat side airbags and side curtain airbags. Edmunds states that the Maserati GranTurismo "comes standard with antilock brakes, [and] stability control." The stability control doesn't kick in straight away, only coming into play when there is serious danger ahead.
The main concern that detracts from all the safety equipment offered with the 2010 Maserati GranTurismo is driver sight. Car and Driver finds that the "sightlines are mediocre" from the driver's seat of the 2010 Maserati GranTurismo, as they are "hindered by a small backlight and the fat A- and C-pillars." Edmunds looks for a bright spot and claims that parking maneuvers in the Maserati GranTurismo are made easier by the standard "rear parking sensors."
The 2010 Maserati GranTurismo offers as much safety as is expected out of a car in this category.
