Italian sprezzatura or British bespoke? Luciano Pavarotti or The Beatles? Prosecco Negroni or gin and tonic? Preference can sometimes be hard to nail down.
Here’s another one: Maserati vs. Aston Martin. Each brand possesses the pinnacle of automotive design while exhibiting the best features of their respective place of origin. One exudes operatic passion, while the other meets the chic, hard-charging standards of 007 himself.
To help you determine which brand deserves a place in your lineup, the team at Faulkner Maserati Willow Grove has created this helpful comparison. Read on to see which brand better fits your life around Willow Grove, Abington, and Horsham.
While the hills of Modena or the Yorkshire Moors are out of reach for most drivers, you can still feel how they inspire Maserati and Aston Martin engineers. Each brand boasts technology derived from Formula 1 racing while incorporating the latest technologies.
Take, for instance, the Maserati MC20. Built with a special 3.6L V6 Nettuno engine, it can reach 60 MPH in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it 2.9 seconds. The closest thing you’ll get from Aston Martin is their DBS Superleggera with its massive V12 engine. Sure, it can roar, but it can’t quite make the jump, delivering 0 to 60 MPH in 3.4 seconds.
One thing drivers also need to consider is everyday drivability. Being the biggest on the block won’t work if you’re constantly waking up the neighbors. For conscientious drivers, Maserati and Aston Martin offer their own souped-up version of the family SUV:
|Brand||Maserati Levante||Aston Martin DBX|
|Engine||3.8L V8||4.0l V8 Twin Turbo|
|Horsepower||580 HP||550 HP|
|0-60 MPH||3.8 seconds||4.3 seconds|
In recent decades, Aston Martin has adopted an action hero vibe when it comes to exterior design. Low roof lines, massive tires, and enough polish to make the Met Gala look like a farm show. It’s a brand for those drivers who want to stand out.
On the other hand, Maserati evokes a different vibe. Strong yes, but also coolly confident. From the hand-sewn Pieno Fiore leather upholstery to the next-gen technology throughout the cabin, Maserati vehicles are meant for personal enrichment.
It’s probably why, unlike Aston Martin, Maserati offers a convertible option. Let the sun soak the interior of the GranTurismo Convertible while you experience a top speed of 179 MPH rush through your hair.
Luxury doesn’t have to be a solo ride. When you choose Maserati, you instantly become a member of an exclusive automotive community. With local chapters throughout the region, you can learn to love your vehicle in new and interesting ways. From track events to driving tours, the Maserati family awaits.
Whether it’s the Cliffs of Dover, the Amalfi Coast, or the streets of Abington, we know the true driving experience happens while sitting behind the wheel of a new Maserati.
