Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 15 - 18 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The Coupé never enjoyed the same resistance to depreciation as a contemporary Porsche 911 so they're surprisingly affordable now. But don't forget that the running costs will be exactly the same as they were for the new buyer paying £70k and possibly higher as items like exhausts will likely now need replacing. Independent marque specialists, many of whom were trained at Maserati main dealer outfits, can help minimise the pain of a maintenance scheme that demands the car receive minor attention every 6250 miles and a further fettling at 12,500 but there's no ready solution for the sub 20mpg economy and group 20 insurance.

The Maserati's 4.2-litre petrol engine returns just 15mpg on average, so it's no surprise that it scores so lowly on the eco front. It emits 430 g/km CO2 which is very high compared to an average family car, but fairly standard compared to similar performance supercars. The only saving grace is that buyers of these sorts of cars tend to do fewer miles per year than those that own average family cars.

Maserati claims it is close to matching the quality of its German rivals in newer models but the Coupé hails from an earlier time when reliability seemed not to be as important to the company. The trim and paint quality is good but tales of trim parting company with car and permanently glowing engine warning lights aren't unheard of.
