2018 GranTurismoThe Maserati Stability Program takes safety seriously. The anti-lock braking system and driveline traction control will keep you safe and your mind at ease as you enjoy the speed Maserati is known for. If the car begins to skid, sensors tell the engine to reduce torque, the brakes are automatically engaged, and the car is stabilized. Even as the program takes over, the driver remains in control of steering. The new Pirelli P Zero tires are designed for optimum grip in all road conditions. Enjoy the drive without having to worry about a little rain. Along with these updates, the 2018 model retains all the safety features of previous models.


The six-speed automatic transmission can now be controlled with paddle shifters at the wheel to keep your hands where they need to be for optimal control. With Sport mode available, dampers are electronically adjusted to ensure a smooth ride even around sharp corners. To enjoy the sunshine and a more aerodynamic drive, choose the Cabrio form with a convertible roof. Bi-Xenon headlights with adaptive light control come standard and ensure every curve and dip is clearly illuminated. Convenience and comfort go hand in hand with easy handling and luxurious leather interior. Seats are form-fitting to hug you at top speed.


A new infotainment system with fewer buttons is sure to please, featuring an 8.4-inch touch screen, navigation, and a rearview backup camera. Reviewers are impressed with the quick and accurate response of the touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard in all available trims, giving you seamless connectivity as you drive. A rotary dial is now located on the center console next to the gear lever for quick and easy control. The audio experience is unmatched through the new Harman-Kardon premium stereo system with Sirius XM. Even with updated technology, class is not lost. Maserati was sure to keep its analog clock center stage, but with a little facelift.

After 10 years of continued innovation, the Gran Turismo just keeps getting better. More comfort, greater luxury, and new technology keep this classic car competing with the new. The speed and power married with the unexplainable lure of the Italian sports car makes these vehicles irresistible.
