2015 Maserati GranTurismo vs. Its Competition

2015 Maserati GranTurismo MC
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Maserati GranTurismo's four plush seats and brilliant handling set it apart from most of the luxury sport coupe segment.

The Jaguar XK, for example, is only available as a two-seater, though it packs its own heritage-influenced flair for style and luxury; it's the most logical alternative to the GranTurismo, but this is its last year on sale as it is being indirectly replaced by the smaller F-Type.

The Porsche 911 offers four seats in most models and is a more focused performer, but it lacks the rear-seat space and the passionate styling of the Maserati.

Aston Martin's Vantage line offers an upgrade from the Jaguar's prestige, with similar traits, and the V12 Vantage S model makes it the only one of this group to offer a V-12 engine, while the V-8 model is available with a manual transmission.

Ferrari's California is a pricey jump from the GranTurismo, but its folding hardtop and Prancing Horse badge may justify the splurge, and it gets a new twin-turbo V-8 for 2015 to further broaden the performance gap.

Quick Specs
8.8
The Maserati GranTurismo looks equally good with a fixed or convertible roof and offers a Ferrari-built V-8 for those who want similar power in a different Italian wrapper.
9.2
While the glorious new F-type sports car might have stolen some of the limelight, the 2015 Jaguar XK lineup remains one of the most gorgeous and desirable grand-touring cars on the market.
9.0
The 2015 Porsche 911 is an enthusiast's dream, with excellent handling, comfort, and performance at every step through its range.
8.4
The 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S raps an exotic soundtrack, and delivers unsubtle performance in a gentlemanly way.
With more power and updated styling, the 2015 California T offers even more reasons to dip a toe into Ferrari's exclusive pool.
