Just more compact than the Quattroporte, the Maserati Ghibli is an imposing saloon 497 cm long and 195 wide. But the muscular and sleek line, also aided by the roof just 146 cm from the ground, gives it the grit of a coupé. The combination of sportiness and luxury is found in the cockpit, elegant and made with extensive use of fine materials: leather upholstery is standard for the seats and can be extended to other internal elements; among the options there is no lack of details in carbon fiber, lacquered wood or briarwood.
In front of Maserati Ghibli you travel on large and enveloping armchairs and the sofa comfortably accommodates two adults (but not a possible third, being the central place a lot raised); considering the sporting extraction of this Modena it is not bad even the trunk, which has a capacity of 500 liters and can be extended by recline the fractioned backrest. Comfortable (especially if you add the electronic suspension) and well soundproofed at a constant speed, the Maserati Ghibli boasts excellent driving quality: grip, braking and precision are true thoroughbreds and the agility between the curves does not seem to be more than 1800 kg mass.
The “access” version Maserati Ghibli 3.0 V6 petrol already has the beauty of 330 hp, but the S offers 409 and there is also with permanent four-wheel drive Q4; alternatively, there is the 3.0 V6 diesel, also supercharged, in the variants of 250 or 275 hp. For all, the gearbox is a very fast and efficient automatic sequential eight-speed ZF.
