The Maserati Spyder is a sporty two-seater designed to introduce buyers to the Maserati brand roadster style. The Spyder will face still competition in this sector but should be well up to the task.

The car’s exterior design is very appealing and delivers a refined ride in most conditions; it will not be difficult for the Spyder to get buyers attention.

The Spyder is reasonably priced compared to competitors. Running costs and insurance will be high and the Spyder will also be an expensive company car.

The seats do sit low and this may pose a problem for some passengers, but once inside passengers should have more than adequate room.

The Spyder provides an excellent driving experience. The car offers plenty of power and good handling and delivers an overall enjoyable driving experience. The car is fast, yet the ride is refined. This isn’t a family car. Children will not fit well in the car’s seats, and since it is a two seater seats are limited. Cabin and boot space are limited as well and make it unsuitable to perform any family duties. It could be used as a fun second or third car to a family. The Gransport is definitely not a good first car. It is too expensive and would be impossible for a new driver to insure. There is too much power on hand for a novice driver and limited visibility can make parking tricky. Maserati has a great image when it comes to producing performance cars. Maserati’s tend to be fast and well built. The cabin boasts quality materials and has a great feel. The company should do very well with the Spyder.
