Maserati MC20 review - MPG, CO2 and running costs

The MC20 is reasonably fuel-efficient for a 200mph car, but its 60-litre fuel tank will limit touring range

Fuel economy is unlikely to be of primary concern to the average Maserati MC20 buyer, but at the same time these kind of cars are designed to be usable, and may be asked to cover large distances in a touring role, so usability is still a factor.

And in context of the car’s performance, a combined figure of 24.4mpg for the coupe, and 24.1mpg for the Cielo, really isn’t all that bad - you’d have been lucky to get low double-figure MPG for some of the earliest 200mph cars. On the MC20’s 60-litre fuel tank, you should be able to stretch to about 300 miles between fill-ups, though if you have any alpine adventures planned, bear in mind this range will drop when using more of the car’s performance.

The economy figures equate to CO2 emissions of 262g/km for the coupe and 265g/km for the Cielo, putting both cars comfortably in the top VED band, with a first-year bill of £2,605 - though on a list price of more than £190,000, you probably won’t notice.

Insurance groups

Maserati doesn’t list insurance groups for the MC20 in its literature but you can expect it to sit in the upper reaches of the 1-50 grouping system - and clients at this level are more likely to find specialist insurance than trawling through an online comparison website.

Depreciation

More conventional Maseratis have often lost value like milk left in the sun, but while you’d be lucky to get a third of what you pay for some variants of the Ghibli or Levante after three years and 36,000 miles, our data shows that MC20 owners will fare much better - the supercar is expected to retain more than 56 per cent of its asking price over the same period.
