MASERATI has given its ageing GranTurismo and GranCabrio pair another refresh, introducing updated styling, a new 8.4-inch infotainment system and a streamlined range, with pricing still starting from $295,000 plus on-roads.
Pricing has remained the same for the GranTurismo coupe, with the Sport variant and top-spec MC still asking $295,000 and $345,000 respectively, while the mid-spec MC Sportline variant, which employed a six-speed sequential manual transmission, has been deleted from the range.
Meanwhile the entry-level GranCabrio has dropped in price by $3000 to $335,000, while the MC checks in at $355,000.
As previously reported, Maserati has given the range some mild styling tweaks, including a revised headlight design, front and rear bumpers, a front-end revision inspired by the Alfieri concept, and a vented carbon-fibre bonnet for MC variants.
Buyers can opt for 16 different colour choices including the new Blu Assoluto, while a choice of 14 different 20-inch alloy wheel designs are available, now shod in new Pirelli P-Zero rubber.
Inside, an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is introduced, as is a more sculptured dashboard design with stitched leather touches.
A new rearview camera is also included, with dynamic gridlines to aid reverse parking.
The Sport gains Maserati’s Centennial pack, consisting of Poltrona Frau leather upholstery with colour contrasting strip design, trident logo stitching on the headrests and seat frames constructed from carbon-fibre.
MC variants gain leather/drilled Alcantara upholstery on the seats, steering wheel, instrument cluster, central armrest, dashboard and door panels. Both variants come with a harman/kardon premium sound system.
No changes have been made to the sole powertrain offering, a 4.7-litre naturally aspirated V8 producing 338kW at 7000rpm and 520Nm at 4750rpm, teamed to a six-speed ZF automatic transmission.
Power is sent to the rear axle, which includes a limited-slip differential for added grip and handling prowess.
The GranTurismo and GranCabrio pair are now one of the older models available on the market, having first been revealed at the 2009 Frankfurt motor show.
In 2017, they recorded 58 combined sales, down 30.1 per cent on their 2016 figure, enough for the third best-selling model in the Italian brand’s line-up, ahead of the Quattroporte upper-large sedan (34) but behind the Levante SUV (429) and Ghibli large sedan (219).
