2023 Maserati GranTurismo interior revealed

Maserati has revealed the cabin of its new-generation GranTurismo, in electric Folgore and petrol-powered Modena and Trofeo guises.

The Italian brand revealed the GranTurismo’s exterior last year, while also detailing its technical specifications, but opted not to release photos of the interior at the time.

The GranTurismo, regardless of variant, features a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster with four different layouts, and an 8.8-inch lower display for the climate control.

There’s also a projected head-up display, along with a digital rear-view camera borrowed from the MC20 supercar.

The infotainment system runs on the Android Automotive operating system and includes wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and gives owners the option to create up to five user profiles. There’s also standard gesture control.

With Maserati Connect, GranTurismo owners also get Amazon Alexa Home-to-Vehicle control, on-the-road connectivity, Maserati Guard stolen vehicle tracking, and over-the-air software updates.

A 14-speaker 860W Sonus Faber sound system is standard, with a 19-speaker sound system optional.

As with the Grecale, the GranTurismo gets a digital version of the Maserati’s trademark dash-mounted clock that’s not only multi-functional, but also responds to the voice command “Hey Maserati” to do things like set the cabin temperature. There are three available skins to choose from.

There’s no gear lever in the GranTurismo, freeing up space on the center console.

The steering wheel is available in Nero (black) and Denim, the latter exclusive to the Folgore. The Trofeo gets perforated leather wrapping for the wheel, plus a bright blue start/stop button.

Prominent aluminum paddle shifters sit behind the wheel, even on the electric Folgore where they are instead used to adjust the level of regenerative braking.

The Modena offers a choice of black, tan or “greige” leather upholstery, with dark ash burl wood accents with an open-pore finish.

The Trofeo’s leather upholstery has a herringbone pattern, and is available in either black, red or ice. Black interiors are offered with a choice of yellow, red or gray chevron stitching.

Finally, the Folgore features extensive use of sustainable materials, including Econyl fabric, a nylon produced from recycled fishing nets, on the seats, roof and pillars.

The pictured Folgore has the light Ice/Denim colourway with Ice stitching; a black colorway with copper-colored stitching elements is also available.

As detailed in October, the GranTurismo features a new range of powertrains.

Unlike the old GranTurismo, which featured V8 power, the new model is available with either twin-turbo V6 or electric powertrains.

The base Modena uses a version of the MC20 supercar’s 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, albeit with a wet sump instead of a dry one, producing 365kW of power and 600Nm of torque.

Equipped with cylinder deactivation, the GranTurismo’s V6 is mated with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission sourced from ZF.

Maserati’s claimed zero to 100 km/h time is 3.9 seconds and the top speed is listed as 302 km/h.

The Trofeo has an uprated version of this engine, pumping out 410kW and 650Nm and slashing the 0-100km/h time to 3.5 seconds. Top speed is 320 km/h.

The Folgore features three 300kW radial motors for a maximum system output of 560kW (battery discharge capacity) or 610kW on overboost. The motors use silicon carbide inverters derived from Formula E.

Peak torque is a staggering 1350Nm, and the Folgore’s AWD system features torque vectoring.

Its T-bone shaped battery pack has 92.5kWh capacity (83kWh usable), and with its available 800V system can handle charging speeds of 270kW, said to add 100km range in five minutes.

Maserati claims a 0-100km/h time of 2.7 seconds, the 0-200km/h speed is rated as 8.8 seconds (2.6sec faster than the Trofeo), and top speed is identical to the Trofeo at 320km/h.

While the Folgore of course has no exhaust or intake, a sound tuning function operated by synthesisers is pumped inside and out through speakers.

The GranTurismo Modena, Trofeo, and Folgore all use double-wishbone front suspension with air springs with electronic adjustable dampers.

All three have multi-link rear suspension, with air springs and electronic adjustable dampers. The Modena has a mechanical self-locking rear diff, while the Trofeo and Folgore use an electronic self-locking unit.

Each uses 380 x 34mm front ventilated discs with Brembo six-piston fixed calipers, and 350 x 28mm rear ventilated discs with Brembo 4-piston fixed calipers.

The staggered wheel configuration includes 21-inch rims with 295/30 tires at the rear, and 20-inch wheels with 265/30 or 265/35 rubber at the front.

The GranTurismo Folgore sits lower than any other electric car on the market, Maserati claims. Said Folgore can also provide regenerative braking levels of up to 0.65g.

At 2260kg, the Folgore EV weighs 465kg more than the Modena and Trofeo (1795kg).

There are various drive modes to change the engine and chassis behaviours, called Comfort, GT, Sport and Corsa, with an ESC-off option for the track. The Folgore’s modes are GT, Sport, Corsa, and Max Range which dials things back to eke out more miles.

Maserati announced it’s going all-electric by 2030 and will have at least one pure electric variant for every model in its lineup by 2025. It’s already revealed an electric Folgore version of its mid-sized Grecale crossover.

We expect the GranTurismo to hit Australia in the second half of 2023, with the petrol and EV models both locked in.
