Overview
Maserati has been teasing us with the new MC20 mid-engine sports car for some time now, and we finally know that this sweet little cannoli will debut with a 630-hp twin-turbo V-6 and spawn an all-electric variant in the future. The MC20 will be offered as a two-seater coupe or convertible with a minimalist cabin that's focused on the driver. A collaboration with motorsport engineering company Dallara has resulted in a carbon-fiber structure with aluminum subframes for the suspension and powertrain. This construction minimizes weight, which sets the MC20 up for performance-related success. Maserati has been running a prototype around its hometown of Modena, Italy since March, so we still expect the MC20 to go on sale in Europe by the end of 2020 and hit U.S. dealerships sometime in 2021.

What's New for 2021?
The MC20 is an all-new model for the Maserati lineup, and the "MC" in its name refers to Maserati Corse—a signal that the brand will soon re-enter racing events with a track-only variant of the car.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
GranLusso: $195,000 (est.)
GranSport: $195,000 (est.)
GTS: $220,000 (est.)
Trofeo: $250,000 (est.)
We're guessing here, both on prices and potential trim levels for the MC20 sports car. No matter how it's equipped, it's sure to be a head-turning, high-performance machine. Once we know for sure how the MC20 will be offered, we'll be able to make a recommendation on which model and which features are worth your hard-earned cash.

Infotainment and Connectivity
Maserati's current lineup uses a reskinned version of Fiat Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system—which we like very much—but from photos we can see that the MC20 will receive a different interface with a horizontally-oriented touchscreen tucked under the air vents in the center of the dashboard. We aren't sure what size this touchscreen is but it looks slightly larger overall than the current displays in the Ghibli and Quattroporte. Maserati will no doubt share more about the MC20's technology offerings closer to the car's on-sale date.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
The MC20 hasn't been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and it likely won't be, since low-volume exotic sports cars rarely undergo that type of scrutiny. We expect a host of driver-assistance features to be available on the MC20 when it goes on sale, and Maserati may even use it to debut next-gen safety tech. Key safety features are likely to include:

Standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
Standard lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist
Available adaptive cruise control
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
We expect the MC20 to come with the same standard warranty package as the other Maserati models, which isn't really anything special. Rivals such as the Audi R8 and the 911 offer slightly more value here, as both offer the first scheduled maintenance visit free of charge.

Limited warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles
Powertrain warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles
No complimentary scheduled maintenance
