The 2022 Maserati GranTurismo spy shots indicate the next-gen car will retain the previous generation’s overall shape, though the renderings flatten the car’s curvier bodywork. The fenders don’t look as bulbous as before, and the headlights are more vertical, too. The brand’s trident badge sits in front of the slotted grille that’s flanked by a pair of triangular intakes. The rendering tweaks the side profile with a new fender vent behind the front wheels. The rear has taillights that have a thinner, sleeker shape, which sits above a sporty-looking bumper and diffuser.

The new 2022 GranTurismo will join the lineup about a year after the upcoming MC20 supercar. Although the details shared with us over the years have changed, we expect the Alfieri-turned-GranTurismo to retain at least some of the beautiful bodywork of the Alfieri concept car, which is sure to make it a stunner

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

Powertrain details are hazy and obscured by years of changes to the original plan, but Maserati’s latest communication was that the 2022 Maserati GranTurismo will be offered as an electric vehicle. Maserati says it will also be available with a gasoline engine and we also suspect that a hybrid or plug-in hybrid model could be part of the plan.

Whether or not a hybrid powertrain will be optional or the GranTurismo’s standard source of propulsion is still up in the air. If a gasoline-only variant is in the cards, it could be a Ferrari-sourced V-6 or V-8, while the hybrid or plug-in hybrid could use a turbo four-cylinder. Bottom line: We just don’t know.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

Without knowing for sure what engine or electric powertrain will power the GranTurismo, it’s impossible to estimate any fuel-economy figures or electric driving range. More information about this will be revealed closer to the car’s on-sale date, and we’ll update this story with information as it becomes available. Once we get a production model in for testing, we’ll put it through our 200-mile highway fuel economy test and report our findings.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The 2022 Maserati GranTurismo will likely continue to be a two-door, four-seater with plenty of luxuries inside the cabin, including the brand’s unique leather-and-silk upholstery by Italian fashion house Ermenegildo Zegna. We expect passenger space to be similar to that of rivals such as the Aston Martin Vantage and Mercedes-AMG GT; cargo space should also be similar to those cars. When the GranCabrio debuts, expect its trunk to see a decrease in capacity as it makes room for stowing a folding fabric roof.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Maserati’s latest infotainment system—Touch Control Plus—is a lightly re-skinned version of Chrysler’s Uconnect setup. We’ve praised the system for being intuitive, quick, and attractive in the Levante SUV. We expect it to make an appearance inside the GranTurismo as well, probably with the same touchscreen interface and features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

It’s possible the new sports car could debut with more advanced driver-assistance features than the current Maserati lineup offers. We won’t know more until the GranTurismo gets closer to production.
