2017 Maserati GranTurismo vs. Its Competition

2017 Maserati GranTurismo
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

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

Ferrari's California is a pricey jump from the GranTurismo, but its folding hardtop and Prancing Horse badge may justify the splurge.

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.

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.

The Jaguar F-Type is only available as a two-seater, though it packs its own heritage-influenced flair for style and luxury.

Quick Specs
7.4
The 2017 Maserati GranTurismo is getting old but its Ferrari-inspired performance and sensuous styling and still appealing.
8.4
The 2017 Jaguar F-Type clips the sports-car apex, with extreme performance meets extremely good looks.
7.8
The 2017 Porsche 911 is a toe into the waters of modernity with a base turbo engine that gets good fuel economy. Don't be fooled; it's every bit the super car it always has been.
7.2
The 2017 Aston Martin Vantage is one of the few remaining bespoke sports cars, likely one of the final years before the automaker capitalizes on its partnership with Mercedes-Benz.
The 2017 Ferrari California T embraces a more luxurious lifestyle, but can peel away the road as well as any $200,000 sportscar should.
