It is Powerful
You can count on the 2015 Maserati Granturismo to do more than impress your dates. This sophisticated beauty is a tiger under the hood. The Granturismo has a 4.7-liter V8 engine that puts out an impressive 454 horse power and 384 pounds per feet of torque. You’ll feel effortlessly propelled over even the roughest of urban terrain.
It Has Versatile Shifting Options
With the Maserati Granturismo, you don’t have to choose between the smooth performance of an automatic and the fun of shifting a manual. The Granturismo comes with a six-speed automatic that includes a manual shifting mode.
When you’re just driving through the city, you can cruise in comfort with the automatic. But when you’re ready to take a more active role in the cockpit, you can flip on the manual mode and imagine yourself on the track.
As befitting an Italian sports car, the Maserati Granturismo delivers fast performance. The coupe reaches top speeds of between 177 mph and 186 mph, which is nearing some of the top speeds available for production vehicles.
The Granturismo isn’t just an endurance runner — it’s also a sprinter. The car can go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and can complete a quarter mile starting from a stop in only 13.3 to 13.6 seconds.
Lighting Has Been Improved
The Granturismo has received some design updates that include improvements to the front end and the lighting. The head lights now have bixenon illumination that creates a clearer guide when you are driving through a variety of conditions. LED daytime running lights are paired with the head lights for when you need a little more visibility, such as in rain storms.
Adaptive lighting control is included, helping you to get the exact level of lighting you need depending on your driving conditions.
You Have a Variety of Color Choices
You can create the look you want for your Maserati Grantourismo through a variety of color choices for both the exterior and in the interior.
Thirteen color choices are available for the exterior: Bianco Birdcage, Bianco Eldorado, Biano Fuji, Blu Mediterraneo, Blu Sofisticato Metallic, Giallo Granturismo, Grigio Granito Metallic, Grigio Lava, Grigio Touring Metallic, Nero, Nero Carbonio Metallic, Rosso Mondiale, and Rosso Trionfale.
Ten color choices are available for the interior: Bianco Pregiato, Blu Profondita, Bordeaux, Cuoio, Grigio Chrono, Marrone Corniola, Nero, Pearl Beige, Rosso Corallo and Sabbia. All of the interior color choices are for premium leather upholstery.
The Seating is Highly Adjustable
You can get just the right fit as a driver or passenger in the Granturismo. The driver seat has power adjustments 10 ways, as well as height adjustment and power adjustable lumbar support. The seat can be heated on multiple levels.
The passenger seat has all the same features, which is an anomaly even among luxury cars. Typically, the passenger seat loses a few levels of adjustment or drops a feature or two from the driver’s seat. However, in the Granturismo, the driver and passenger can both get the same level of comfort.
It Comes with Dual-Zone Climate Control
You don’t have to fight over the air conditioner when you have a passenger who has a different temperature preference from you. The 2015 Maserati Granturismo comes with dual-zone climate control between the driver and passenger sides, so that you can both get the exact temperature you want. Everyone can be happy.
It Has a Premium Audio System
The 2015 Maserati Granturismo comes with a Bose premium brand audio system that includes 11 Bose premium speakers. The system includes satellite radio (and you get three months of service with the purchase of the vehicle), auxiliary audio inputs, USB ports and surround sound audio.
You can stream audio from personal devices, such as a smart phone. The system also includes speed sensitive volume control, so the music will automatically get louder when you start driving faster and the engine is roaring louder.
It Has Improved Mileage
No one buys a sports car for its fuel economy, but buyers of the 2015 Maserati Granturismo will be pleased to know that the fuel economy has been improved over the previous model.
The 2015 model has an EPA estimated fuel economy of 13 mpg in the city and 21mpg on the highway. The 2013 model had an EPA estimated fuel economy of 11 mpg in the city and 17-18 mpg on the highway.
The improvement is not significant enough to create huge savings, but it will save you a few trips to the gas station and limit the inconvenience of having to fuel up.
You’ll also feel good knowing that you’re lowering your fuel consumption even a little. That makes you green, right?
It Comes with a 50,000-Mile Warranty
Most cars come with a warranty of around three years or 36,000 miles, unless you invest in an extended warranty. However, the 2015 Maserati Granturismo comes with a four-year warranty that covers up to 50,000 miles.
The warranty covers basic repairs, the drive train, roadside assistance and even rust. With the Granturismo, you get full coverage to keep your car protected and looking its best for years to come.
It Has Numerous Safety Features
As fast and powerful as the Maserati Granturismo is, it also needs to be safe. And it is. The Granturismo is loaded with safety features.
Some features include four-wheel anti-lock brakes, emergency braking assist, an engine immobilizer, stability and traction control, and a tire-pressure monitoring system. The Granturismo also includes a post-collision safety system to provide assistance in case of an emergency.
Of course, the Grantourismo also includes numerous airbags, including dual front side-mounted airbags and front head airbags.
The Maserati is a gorgeous and powerful sports car that you can purchase as either a coupe or convertible. It offers some of the most luxurious features in a sports car, and it has a head-turning look that will be the envy of people everywhere you go.
You’ll feel like a celebrity in a Maserati.
