9. Maserati GranTurismo
Maserati itself is a brand that has been around for decades, but the recent cars to bare a Maserati badge have been less than exciting. The GranTurismo has been in its current form since about 2009 and the car has seen minimal upgrades. You’d expect a car that is in this price caliber to be updated but overall the GranTurismo is lacking. The overall design is very much focused on speed, which is fine but the rest of the car is outdated. The seats and the interior have seen very little change over the past couple of years. Boasting a Ferrari-derived engine is enough to make the car fun to drive.
But for the price tag, there are many more updated sports cars on the market. Maserati has focused attention on the growing SUV market, which is fine. But this has left the GranTurismo without a major upgrade in quite a long period. Take one look at the car and it’s quite beautiful, but the lacking features for the price make the GranTurismo best left avoided. Maserati as a brand seems to get content when a certain model is selling well, but the company will need to start innovating to remain competitive.
