2019 Maserati Ghibli Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide


CARHP Editorial Updated on: November 14, 2019


If Ferrari was supposed to make luxury sedans, Maserati would come very close to the idea. The Italian extravagant vehicle manufacturer has been the epitome of Italian craftsmanship especially in four door sedans. One such example of their sheer brilliance is the Ghibli. Launched in 2015, the Ghibli slots in below the Quattroporte in the Maserati line-up and carries all the DNA of its larger sibling, although in a smaller profile.

The first generation Ghibli, now enters into its 2019 model year, and is pretty much the same as the previous model apart from the very minor tech updates. Available at a base price of $74,980, the Ghibli with all its harmonious composition of several fine-touch elements, presents a unique contention to the league of Audi A7, Mercedes CLS and BMW M550i.

Expert Review

9.1

Overall Rating


You would probably own a Maserati, because of your uncompromisede flair for design, luxury, and exclusivity. With money you can buy any luxury sedan out in the market, but arriving in a Maserati is something very classy and elegance. If you like the charm of Maserati's, but the WQuattroporte is too big for you, the Ghibli is what the Italian style icon has for you.

The Maserati name itself, carries a lot of emotion into it. Luxury, exclusivity, comfort, great handling and a sporty character are almost synonymous with the brands name, and the Ghibli doesnt lets the famed name down. It packs in everything that you could seek from an Italian luxury sedan. However, one area where the Ghibli might disappoint you is its interior fit and finish which feels a bit on the down side when compared to some of its rivals.

We prescribe to go for the highest Ghibli S Q4 variation, as it accompanies more power and strong four-wheel-drive framework. The riding knowledge was certainly better on the upper variation, and it merits each penny.

We Recommend

Ghibli Gransport looks the best of the lot. Yes, it is priciest but it has just the right amount of facial upgrades which makes it look even more purposeful and sporty.
