The Maserati GranTurismo MC Vs. The BMW 540i: Performance


A post shared by Maserati (@maserati) on

Maserati models have continually stood as a testament to precision engineering, impeccable craftsmanship and exceptional style - however, drivers may find themselves considering comparable sport-focused sedans when shopping for their next luxury sportscar. BMW consistently stands as a worthy contender for shoppers considering a Maserati - however, despite formidable models like the BMW 540i sedan challenging the performance and comfort of the Maserati GranTurismo, it ultimately fails to surpass the performance and luxury Maserati consistently delivers.

Power and Performance

The BMW 540i sedan comes equipped with a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine exerting an impressive 335 horsepower, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. While offering driving dynamics control and various active features like electronic throttle control and brake energy regeneration, the BMW 540i falls short of the Maserati GranTurismo.

The GranTurismo, conversely, offers drivers a powerful 4.7-liter V8 engine that exerts a mammoth 454 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque - hurling the GranTurismo from 0 to 60 in just 4.7 seconds. Also offering multiple drive modes for improved handling dynamics, alongside strong Brembo brakes, a limited slip differential and a ZF six-speed MC Auto Shift gearbox, the GranTurismo confidently outpaces the BMW 540i. Additionally, as a naturally aspirated engine, the GranTurismo responds more quickly at lower RPMs than the BMW 540i's twin-turbocharged engine - once again placing the GranTurismo out in front.
