8 Maserati Quattroporte Reviews You Need To Read

Don’t buy Maserati Quattroporte if performance is important for you. Instead, buy Audi S8 or Tesla Model S P85D. Tesla Model S P85D is an especially good choice because it is so good that it broke the ratings scale. If you are still interested in that Maserati, then read the expert reviews below.
Maserati Quattroporte Reviews From Experts
1. While the 2015 base prices and the performance of the BMW 760Li and the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC are similar to those of this Maser, it is the marauding Audi S8 that storms the ramparts, kicks in the doors, and makes off with the crown. The last S8 we tested boasted powertrain specs that closely parallel the Maserati’s, with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 that made 520 horsepower and 481 lb-ft. The S8 weighed 4620 pounds, 33 pounds lighter than the GTS despite the S8’s Quattro all-wheel drive.
With the Quattroporte, we were eager to experience the Italian version of luxury and performance, one that spoke a hot-blooded dialect we would feel in our vital organs. While the performance is there, it’s delivered in a package that doesn’t exactly inspire amore. 2015 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Review from Car and Driver
2. The Maserati Quattroporte is more than a deceptively sexy name; it’s a beautiful, performance-oriented Italian luxury car endowed with ample power, sharp handling and two impressive transmissions that make it the closest thing you can get to a Ferrari sedan. The fact that Maserati and Ferrari are sister companies make that more than just a metaphor.
Despite weighing about 4,400 pounds, the Maserati Quattroporte manages to feel like a car half its size with well-weighted steering, limited body roll and a captivating eagerness to change direction. Contributing to this is Maserati’s “Skyhook” adjustable suspension, controlled by a button on the dash. Maserati Quattroporte Review from Edmunds
3. Quattroporte is a touchstone for the marque, both as a measure of where it has been and where it is going. It’s spacious and sinister-looking and capable in inclement weather, too, worth considering if you want something with more attitude than, say, a Lexus. Just make sure your guy cuts you a sweet deal. Otherwise choose the smaller Ghibli – or something from Audi/BMW/Mercedes — instead.Maserati Quattroporte Review from Bloomberg
4. Perhaps only Maserati could make us swoon for a luxury sedan that, by pretty much any measure, no longer keeps up with the technical powerhouses that dominate the super sedan segment. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Audi A8, and BMW 7 Series are either quicker in a straight line, corner better, have more tech and luxury touches or, in most cases, all of the above apply.
But parked outside a 5-star restaurant, or rolling up to a helipad, which car do you think is going to turn more heads? Flawed as it might be, the Maserati Quattroporte is a passionate dose of imperfection in a market full of coolly calculated engineering, and autobahn-tuned dynamic brilliance.

5. Only the Italians could get away with calling a car ‘four door’. Appended to the name Maserati, though, Quattroporte conjures up all sorts of romantic imagery, an idea that the car itself hasn’t always merited since first appearing in 1963. Now, somewhat belatedly into its fifth generation, the QP has finally grown-up, and in more ways than one: in its bid to really take the fight to the German limos that dominate this posh end of the market, the latest QP is well over five metres long.
That also explains the new QP’s rather brash appearance. Even on vast 21in alloys and in a suitably menacing colour, it’s simply not as elegant as the previous car, and is no longer likely to be mistaken for a four-door Ferrari. Maserati Quattroporte from Top Gear
Maserati Quattroporte Reviews From Owners
These are reviews by owners of this car from WhatCar.
6. When the Quattraporte first hit the road, everyone including me was stunned by the looks, the performance and the prestige of the marque. It wasn’t long before the gearbox came in for some critisism by those comparing it with a Mercedes S-Class, which seemed a little unfair, as the Quattroporte is not a sedate suit-mover, it is a passionate love affair with a fiery but fabulous woman. It is a sports saloon with the emphasis on sport.
7. I bought a new QP back in November 2007 and have had nothing but problems with it. With only 2500 miles it has had a new steering rack, prop shaft, window sensor and paint flaking off the inside of the boot. Also the rear tyres need replacing already! I paid £88,000 for this car with optional extras. I traded in my Ferrari 360 for this car and it was the worst thing I have ever done. I would not buy a Maserati ever again.
8. I have owned this car now for 1 year and it has been a dream to own. The paddle shift gear box works really well unlike other paddle shift cars i have drove. The interior is to die for i have midnight red interior and the body is silver. i am really pleased with the performance of my maserati and couldent live without it.
