The Maserati GranTurismo Sports Coupe and the Sports Coupe S come standard with many features and various options that make for a safer, more comfortable ride. As part of the base trim, this coupe has 19-inch alloy wheels, an engine immobilizer, bi-xenon headlamps, 10-way power driver and front passenger seats, various steering-wheel mounted controls, and a navigation system. Buyers of the GranTurismo Sports Coupe can customize their vehicles to fit their needs and tastes, and may choose from a wide selection of interior trims, paint, and leather upholstery colors.
Considering the hefty sum buyers must shell out for the GranTurismo Sports Coupe, the technological aspects are merely adequate. Maserati offers features that are now standard in many vehicles, including Bluetooth integration, a navigation system, MP3 audio input, single CD player stereo, and a USB connection. The navigation system, however, is voice activated, making it easier to keep two hands on the wheel while careening around curves.
More impressive is the 2011 GranTurismo's interior, with 10-way power front seats, lumbar support for the driver and front passenger, front dual zone climate control, and abundant leather and wood trim throughout the cabin. The rear seat is roomy enough to seat 2 adults comfortably, which makes the Maserati stand out in this class. Unfortunately, the limited trunk space, at just 9.2 cubic feet, makes this coupe less appealing than some of its competitors including the Audi and Mercedes coupes. Perhaps being able to customize certain features of the GranTurismo Sport Coupe will help prospective buyers forgo trunk space.
