2017 Maserati Ghibli vs 2017 Maserati Quattroporte

Serving North Olmsted, Strongsville, and Cleveland, OH

Elegant style and refinement await the driver and passengers of the 2017 Maserati Ghibli and its big brother, the 2017 Maserati Quattroporte. These sedans are made to serve the driver with performance and precision handling. With an emphasis on craftsmanship and lasting quality, beautiful interiors are customized for each person’s taste.

Performance

Both Maserati models have racy rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive options. Impressive driving dynamics are also common to both models. Maserati uses Skyhook Active Damping to counter the road’s bumps and gravity’s pull. A ZF eight-speed automatic transmission smooths the shifts to make more out of each car’s power output. The Ghibli has a twin-turbo V6 that delivers 345 horsepower. If you step up to the Ghibli S or Q4, you command 404 horsepower and 406 lb.-ft. of torque. Quattroporte models start off with the 404-horsepower twin turbo V6. A twin turbo powers the Quattroporte GTS models. This remarkable engine kicks out 523 horsepower. To help it cheat the wind, there are automatic grille shutters. These sedans offer the driving experience and excitement you’d expect from a sports car.

Appearance

A midsized sedan, the 2017 Ghibli still offers generous spaciousness and comfort to both rows. Distinctive stitching livens up the standard upholstery. A new luxury package includes a silk and leather upholstery combination. S models offer a racy red upholstery. The new two-layer command unit includes a large knob for the screen and a small one of the volume. Both are positioned on the console where the driver’s right hand would naturally rest. For the redesigned screen, there is a trident button for apps and media. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have been added to stretch the system’s capability to the max.

Even richer appointments await in the Quattroporte, the largest Maserati sedan. GranLusso models are marked by a chrome-rich exterior and Ermenegildo Zegna silk inside. Open-pore Radica wood dresses the dashboard. Four-zone climate controls are complemented by two rows of heated seats and an electric rear sunshade. GrandSport models dress the exterior in extra black elements with red brake calipers for contrast. Inside piano-black trim meets rich leathers. The stylish new wheel comes in your choice of leather or carbon fiber. For entertainment, the car has Maserati Touch Control Plus.

Safety

When it comes to safety, both sedans are as safety-conscious as they are performance driven. Forward collision warning primes the brakes to get ready for the driver’s response. If reaction times are slow, automatic braking may occur. This should reduce the collision damage or stop it altogether. Adaptive cruise control works for the driver, reducing or increasing speed to match traffic. It can even come to a full stop if necessary. Blind spot monitors watch both sides of the sedan, warning the driver about side traffic that’s too close for lane changes.


With so much beauty and exciting performance, you may have a hard time choosing between the Ghibli and the Quattroporte. One thing’s for certain, you won’t be disappointed. Arrange a test drive at Cleveland Motorsports.
