Maserati Quattroporte: what would you like to read next?

Is the Maserati Quattroporte a good car?

The Maserati Quattroporte is a luxurious saloon car with left-field looks, a premium interior and a pair of smooth V6 engines. It doesn’t come with anywhere near the same level of equipment as the likes of the Mercedes S-Class or BMW 7 Series, though.

This shouldn’t be an immediate dealbreaker, though – especially if you’re more into how a car looks than how speedy its sat-nav responds. The imposing Maserati Quattroporte looks sportier than the rather understated Mercedes S-Class and its angular front end isn’t anywhere near as divisive as the BMW 7 Series with its gaping nostril-like grilles.

Step inside, and you’ll find the Maserati Quattroporte’s cabin feels impressively posh but isn’t quite as modern as the Mercedes’ or BMW’s. Sure, there’s plenty of plush leather upholstery on the seats, dashboard and doors, but the Quattroporte’s infotainment system isn’t a patch on the slick multi-screen setups you get in German alternatives.

At least you’ll be sitting comfortably while you fiddle around adjusting the sat-nav. The Maserati Quattroporte’s seats are soft and supportive and there’s ample space for tall adults to stretch out.

The Maserati Quattroporte provides an alternative to the usual crop of up-market German cars if you prefer your saloon’s to look stylish rather than come packed with sci-fi technology

Things aren’t quite so roomy in the back seats – your tallest friends will have more headroom in an S-Class or 7 Series – but at least the Quattroporte comes with double glazing and special sound insulation to make it a very quiet car to travel in.

The super-smooth V6 engines also do their bit to make the Maserati Quattroporte very relaxing to drive. Both the petrol and diesel are quiet and powerful so you’ll have no trouble breezing past slow-moving traffic, but you’ll find they’re a bit thirstier than comparable engines in alternatives.

What you won’t find in the Maserati Quattroporte is quite as many clever driver assistance features in the two Germans. If you can live without these, however, the Maserati Quattroporte makes an interesting, left-field luxury saloon. Check out our Maserati Quattroporte deals to see how much you can save on one.
