Maserati Quattroporte interior
The Maserati Quattroporte’s interior looks elegant and the latest infotainment is an improvement, but it still feels dated and a long way from the hi-tech Germans
The Quattroporte is typically Italian inside – it’s clear the focus was on a stylish design with largely elegant materials and a sense of charm.
However, plush though many elements of the interior feel thanks to lots of leather and chrome, some parts such as the centre console look and feel noticeably cheaper than the German equivalents. It’s also clear how old the Quattroporte is now – despite updates, the technology and layout isn’t all that fresh.
Still, everything is fairly logically laid out, while the seats are very comfortable wherever you sit. The wide variety of trim and upholstery options you get (depending on spec) allows you to instil a special feel into what is generally a special car.
When this generation of Quattroporte first launched it came with a fairly small, old-fashioned touchscreen with low-res graphics that had clearly been sourced from the Jeep parts bin.
Things are better in that respect these days, with a new, 8.8in infotainment screen taking pride of place on the centre console, Maserati has clealry been eyeing up BMW’s iDrive system thanks to the Quattroporte offering the option to control the screen by touch or via a rotary click wheel.
Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also standard nowadays, so even if you don’t get on with the car’s in-built software you can simply link up your phone and away you go.
