Maserati MC20 review - Practicality, comfort and boot space

There's good room for two, and factory luggage should make best use of the limited boot space

The Maserati MC20 successfully blends the twin requirements of a sports car and a grand tourer as far as interior space, atmosphere and comfort are concerned. The cabins of both the coupe and the Cielo are effectively the same, the only notable difference being that optional gap in the roof, so there’s no real compromise for choosing the open-topped car, and luggage space is the same in both.

That also applies to the well thought-out driving position, and if you do go for the Cielo, and put the roof down, then at most speeds wind noise and cabin bluster is kept to a minimum. The only real downside in both is rearward visibility - it basically doesn’t exist. A digital rear-view mirror mitigates this. One box we’d recommend ticking when you order is the optional nose lift, giving you some extra breathing room over speed bumps.

Size

At 4,669mm long, 1,965mm wide (not including mirrors), and only 1,224mm tall, the MC20 certainly has traditional supercar proportions, and they make it just a touch longer and wider than a Ferrari 296, and slightly taller. At 2,178mm wide from the tips of its mirrors you might need to breathe in (or fold them in!) between width restrictors, but the MC20 doesn’t actually feel that big from behind the wheel.

Leg room, head room and passenger space

With only two seats to consider and a clean sheet to start with for the carbon tub, Maserati has been able to provide plenty of room for driver and passenger in the MC20, and the butterfly doors mean getting in isn’t too much of a challenge either.

Boot

The MC20 offers two luggage areas, with a front compartment of 50 litres and 100 litres in the rear. Naturally, Maserati will help you fill these with its own branded luggage, but if this sounds a bit cynical then it may not be such a bad idea to make full use of the limited space.
