2019 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide


CARHP Editorial Updated on: November 12, 2019


Maserati, the sister brand of Ferrari, manages to wow even after not having a major facelift in 10 years. Riding on the ethics of Ferrari, Maserati brings to the table a personality and bold look that isn't matched by any of its rivals. The same is exercised in its purest essence with the Quattroporte. Though its name translates as just 'four door' from Italian, it is a sedan that goes way beyond the basic purpose of an automobile: getting you from A to B. It does so with the style and opulence that would make you feel that it has earned the trident emblem on the front grille.

Expert Review


Being the king of the hill has its perks. Similarly, the GTS variants of the Maserati Quattroporte has the best of the entire lineup. Packing a twin-turbocharged, 3.8L V8 under the hood, courtesy of Ferrari, the Quattroporte GTS sedan translates more than 500 horsepower to the rear wheels, which is more than enough for your track day fun. In spite of that, the Maserati Quattroporte is really in its element when you drop down to cruising speed along quiet back roads. That is when you can truly relax and appreciate the subtle remarks of this pleasant grand tourer.

However, Maserati is not the only one holding all the cards. When it comes to luxury sedans, a few Germans are quite capable to stand up to the Quattroporte, with the superior build quality. Both the Mercedes-Benz and BMW offer stiff competition to the Maserati in terms of creature comforts. The Brits aren't far behind, with the Jaguar XJ hot on the heels of the Quattroporte. While both cars can go neck-and-neck for luxury, the Italian can never match the Jag's performance prowess.

2019 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Features

This time around, the Maserati Quattroporte offers more options than ever for the Quattroporte. Even for the GTS, you get a choice between two separate trim levels, both having the same price tag. Although the dynamics of the GranLusso and GranSport differ drastically, both are powered by the same Ferrari derived powertrain. While the GranSport grants a more hands-on experience for a thrilling drive, the GranLusso encourages you to sit back and listen to your favorite Schubert opera, while the car takes care of giving you a comfort level most presidential suites will live up to.

We Recommend

The top-of-the-line Quattroporte GTS sedan can be chosen as a GranSport or GranLusso. Since the car best excels in offering luxury and a comfortable ride, it is best to go for the latter as it grants you access to exclusive creature comforts and a few nice touches to the cabin.

2019 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Engine and Performance

"Whether you go with the standard V6 on base trim levels or the aggressive V8 in the top-of-the-line Quattroporte GTS, there's plenty of power on tap. Sport mode sharpens transmission responses and belts out a few additional spine-tingling sounds from the exhaust pipes." - Edmunds

Engine and Performance

This Maserati is being fed by a 3.0L 6-cylinder inline engine having an output of 424-horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque. These are some interesting numbers on-paper and the performance lives up to the expectations as well.

It is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission which is found not as accurate as one would expect. The shifts are quite short but the harder throttle response is carried out by longer shifts. The car revs up to the red mark with ease and gives out extortionate performance.

The Quattroporte faces competition with the mentioned cars and it turns out to be a very fair comparison as all the cars have the 3L engine with 6-cylinder setup and 8-speed automatic gear setup.

Pretty clearly, the Maserati poses out as the winner with a drastic lead in the engine's output, tuning, and performance. Rest, all being luxurious sedans comes out equally similar based on their engine qualifications.

Acceleration

The perfectly tuned engine by Maserati allows the Quattroporte to achieve the 0-60 mph target in just 4.5 seconds and covers the quarter-mile in a mere 12.7 seconds. Having such a performance-oriented has a negative side which can be seen in the emissions department.

It is certainly the best car out of the pack and delivers well for what it is asked for. The Jaguar XJ and Audi A8 take the down score while having similar outputs on track.

Ride and Handling

Despite the increased girth of the car, Maserati has managed to pull out an extremely balanced car. It involves a lot of aluminum in its structure and chassis which allows it to shed the unnecessary weight which further adds to a more responsive and well-handled car. As one would expect from a sports luxury sedan, the suspension is on the firm side which allows it to cruise through any circumstance without causing any nuisance. The electro-hydraulic steering allows the sheer joy of handling the Quattroporte at ease.

The bigger wheels, however, decreases the comfort somewhat.

Braking

The 13.6-inch and 13.0-inch brake pads on the front and the rear wheels respectively helps the car to come at halt from the usual cruising speeds. The Maserati is one heavily built car, weighing just about 4.1tonnes.

When tested to the extreme, the brakes brought the Quattroporte from 60 mph to a dead stop in just 105 ft. which is considerably great.

When analyzed, the car weighs right in the middle of the category but even though it has the smallest of the brake setups, it still carries off the least distance and the quickest to stop from 60 miles an hour. The Jaguar XJ loses this aspect of the clan.

2019 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Fuel Economy

Having such performance driven aspects and outcomes, the Maserati Quattroporte is surely not considered to be an economical car. It consumes 16 mpg and 23 mpg in city and highway respectively. Thus, it delivers 18 miles per gallon of fuel consumption, combined.

Comparing the Quattroporte to its rivals, it loses out to every car in the segment which claims that it is the most uneconomical vehicle to be driven. The BMW 740i is a clear cut winner here, by proving to give such approachable numbers despite the heavy engine.

2019 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Interior

"The Quattroporte has a roomy, well-appointed and stylish cabin. There are nearly endless customization options for interior materials and all sorts of luxurious features such as fold-out tables and quad-zone automatic climate control." - Edmunds

Seating and Comfort

The Quattroporte is a well carved out car to easily stack in 5 people. The cabin is plush and ambient with many leather and wooden accents. The seats are of top quality leather. The front seats are a joy to be in, while the back seats could be a bit of compromise for big adults.

Due to lack of data, we cannot put the Maserati Quattroporte against its competitors but the car ranks almost equally with the BMW 7-series which is class-leading in terms of space and comfort.

Infotainment System

The 2019's Quattroporte features an all-new 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system which is quite stuffed with the latest technology but still fails to deliver justice to a $100,000+ vehicle. The system offers:

  • Android Auto
  • Apple CarPlay
  • AM/FM radio
  • Aux, USB Plug-in
  • Real-Time Navigation
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Voice command

Cargo Capacity

Being one of the longest and widest in its class, this vehicle offers just about 19 cubic feet of cargo space which is quite some excellent work in this department which further allows the practicality of the car to some heights and of less hassle.

2019 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Exterior

"A feast for the eyes, the 2019 Maserati Quattroporte is a big and stylish Ferrari-powered sedan that competes with some of the top luxury flagship sedans on the market today." - Edmunds.

Dimension and Weight

Having a length of 207 inches, a width of 77 inches and a height just above 58-inch, the Quattroporte is surely a huge sedan. Provided a wheelbase of 125-inch assures the presence of plenty of space inside the cabin of the car. The car's built pretty symmetrically when the front to the rear ratio of track width is almost identical.

The 7-series is known for its plush and technology stuffed outlook at heart. It offers numerous amounts of exquisite luxury, exceptional crafted details, and phenomenal mechanisms. Also known to be a chauffeur-driven car, it provides tons of comfort at the back seats as well. However, the car lacks some confidence in handling as the steering is found to be soft and numb, even though the engine is a result of pure refined engineering.

Maserati Quattroporte vs Jaguar XJR575

Being kept in the same category of competition, the Jaguar does not offer any thrilling feature of output out of its XJ. The car is well built, provides a exceptionally of comfort, luxury, technology and driving experience but falls short when compared to its rivals.

Maserati Quattroporte vs Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The Audi comes with a feature and future loaded sedan, the A8. This gives out an immense amount of safety features, technology upholdings, premium comfort and a good quality of the ride. The engine's output, however, falls a bit low along with some minor intakes of the cargo space and ride setup, when brought up to the comparative scale.

2019 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Final Verdict

Priced above all this automotive marvel blessed with the Italian grace also performs above all.
