Lots of recent coverage of the Ghibli here lately. Why?
175MPH top speed, 4.7-seconds to 60MPH in awd S Q4 format -- or just 4.9 for the rear-drive Ghibli S. Sonorous and Ferrari-evoking exhaust note, handling purity and exclusivity.
First cabin impressions: great seats, four front cupholders, sporty steering wheel and large infotainment touchscreen.
The 8.4-inch Maserati Tough Control (MTC) screen also includes side-mounted analog knobs for rapid adjustments, and the panel is both near-vertical to avoid glare and pretty closeup for easy tap-ability without leaning or stretching.
The trunk even seemed pretty generous. But the rub? The back seat was a bit tighter than expected. A steep rake to the rear seatback sets the tone for a very sporty compact in the legroom tallies.
Width is generous, but those with need for rear lounge space should definitely look to the longer Quattroporte.
