It still effortlessly stands out as a striking and elegant full-size luxury sport sedan and for those who are looking for more, there’s the 2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS with a beautiful V8 under its hood.

2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Features

The 2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS will remain stagnant to its two trim options, the GranLusso, and the GranSport which share the same sticker price of $126,990. The GranLusso is more handsomely decorated, while the GranSport, as the name hints, is more sporty and aggressively looking.

The Quattroporte GTS comes in two different trim options. The GranLusso should suit the likes of buyers who prefer the classy and premium style. The sedan is dressed in a more luxurious manner, with upgraded upholstery, ventilated front seats, power-adjustable pedals, and numerous more features. The GranSport enters as a more sporty-inspired choice since it equips the sedan with sporty exterior and interior styling treatments and sport seats.

Which trim should you buy?

Since the ultimate fate of owning the Maserati Quattroporte GTS is flaunting the sporty-luxury side, the GranSport trim makes more sense. It doesn't compromise on luxury and comfort but makes the Italian luxury sport sedan a more aggressive showpiece.

2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Engine and Performance

7.0/10

Pop the hood of the 2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS and you’ll discover a punchy 3.8L V8 that pumps out 523 hp and 524 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mashed with a buttery smooth yet brisk shifting 8-speed automatic gearbox and the power flushes to the rear wheels strictly.

Compared to the less powerful V6 Quattroporte, the GTS cranks out 99 hp more power, though there’s no AWD, even as an option. The Italian automaker boasts GTS as the race-bred performance sedan, and the flagship Quattroporte sedan is fairly quick. Upon launch, the GTS sedan takes 4.7-seconds to hit the 60-MPH mark on the taco, while a quarter-mile is measured in 12.9-seconds. 

The V8 has an outright roar and rumble and the 8-speed automatic does a great job with the quick and smooth shifts. The Quattroporte GTS can be pushed to be aggressive while it’s quite refined when the driver is gentle with the pedals.

In comparison to a stupidly powerful BMW 7 Series with a massive V12 block under the hood, the Maserati Quattroporte GTS feels underwhelming and sluggish. The GTS could have an edge with a frugal price and incredible power, but the likes of the Audi S8 L are already crowned with better power per dollar numbers. Also, the Quattroporte GTS is limited to rear-wheel-drive only, which makes it more sporty and playful. But every other rival comes with an AWD that adds confidence and grip on wet and slippery surfaces. 

How well does the 2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS handle?

The powerful V8 block under the hood powers the 2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS with sufficient grunt, and the 8-speed automatic gearbox does a fabulous job at maintaining those numbers. The GTS can be aggressive in time when the driver decides to push the pedal much harder, yet it feels slower to the class. A 4.7-second 0-60 MPH is not much exhilarating but enough to pin the occupants back to the seats. The Quattroporte GTS has a snarling response too, but it’s versatile to be quiet and refined when the roads are meant to be enjoyed rather than raced upon.

The GTS lacks an AWD option, but the rear-wheel drive allows the buyers to smoke the tires, run sideways, and enjoy the rich power delivery. The perfect 50-50 weight distribution results in a balanced ride, while the Italian performance sedan can be agile and nimble at times. The Quattroporte GTS fits skyhook suspensions which continuously read the road and the sedan variable damping variation for a smoother ride and better handling at corners.

2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Braking Performance

The 2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS fits powerful Brembo brakes along with sizable brake rotors. The discs are dual-cast to be lighter to reduce the unsprung mass, hence, providing handling prowess along with strong braking actions. When it comes to panic emergency braking, the Quattroporte GTS can be brought to a dead stop at 103-ft from the point where the brakes are stabbed at 60-MPH.

The lighter chassis and unsprung mass not only enhance the handling, but also the braking performance. The Maserati Quattroporte GTS offers the best numbers in braking performance, leading the heavier rivals. That said, the Porsche Panamera also performs very well considering the extra bulk it carries over the Maserati. Even the heaviest, Audi S8 L, tends to remain close to its competitors, coming to a halt at 105ft.

2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Fuel Economy

9.0/10

The fire-breathing and gas-guzzling V8 can’t be expected to match some Toyota in terms of fuel economy. Though, the ones who can own and sit behind the wheels of the 2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS won’t have efficiency as a headache. The EPA estimates reveal that the Italian luxury sports sedan delivers 15/22/17 MPG on city/highway/combined. Thus the Maserati sedan alternates as an impressive grand touring machine. With a 21.1- gallon fuel tank, the Quattroporte GTS can easily last for more than 350 combined miles.

The Maserati Quattroporte GTS isn’t best-in-class when it comes to fuel economy, but it surpassed the likes of BMW and Audi mentioned rivals that average mileage of 16 MPG, only. Though the Porsche Panamera emerges as a champ with insane power and acceleration, it still manages to be the most efficient in the lot and with the largest tank in the segment, enjoys a combined range that is just shy of the 500-mile mark. 

2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Interior

6.0/10

The 2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS flaunts a rich and plush cabin with exotic Italian styling cues and premium materials though, the European rivals have a more upscale and finer finish. Yet the Italian luxury sport sedan stands out with a unique and tasteful design inside the cabin. The buyers would love the blend of opulence and sportiness taking inside the cabin. With front sport seats, the driver and the front passengers are gripped and held on to their place. The big bolsters and contours make the occupant feel comfortable and supported. 

While only the blinded eyes won’t miss out on the “Trident” embossed on the seats. The cabin is flourished with soft leather, silk, carbon fiber, authentic wood, and well-fitted metal accents, however, there’s some dishonest usage of hard plastics that don’t do justice to the Maserati’s price tag. The rear seating space is highly comfy with ample headroom and legroom. But we suggest seating just two in the rear since the middle seat has a noticeable hump and could ruin the experience over longer overhauls. 

The two trims, GranLusso and GranSport offer distinctive attire to the cabin, and depending on your taste of delicate or cabin, one can easily garnish the cabin to the best. The 2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS also doubles as an excellent grand-tourer with ample space for both occupants and luggage. The rear cargo space is 18.7 cu-ft in volume, enough for the impromptu run to the isolated beach house.

 The Maserati Quattroporte GTS flaunts distinctive Italian styling inside the cabin, which makes it peculiar and quirky in a crowded market filled with numerous European cars. The cabin is garnished with first-class materials but isn’t as refined as the European rivals. The cheap plastic usage does spoil the taste, lifted off from the Chrysler siblings (since Maserati is a part of the Stellantis group).

Some of the standout interior features are as follows:

  • Soft-close doors
  • Power trunk with kick sensor
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Power-adjustable front seats
  • Heated front seats
  • Premium Leather Upholstery

What’s there to keep you entertained in the 2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS?

The system incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. and is paired to a premium 10-speaker Harman Kardon Surround sound system.

Some of the highlights of the infotainment system are as follows:

  • The 10.1-inch multimedia infotainment system
  • Bluetooth and Handsfree streaming
  • SiriusXM Satellite and HD Radio Connectivity
  • AM/FM stereo CD/MP3
  • 10-speaker Harman Kardon Surround Sound System
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Exterior

8.0/10

The ravishing and tantalizing looks of the Italian beauty, the 2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS, drives the wealthy pockets to its dealership. Since cars are said to be the representation of money and style, the Quattroporte GTS is the handsome and drool-worthy driveway asset that rich lads would love to throw their paper money on.

The lines slope beautifully in the front merging with the grille, while the angry-looking front fascia is the contribution of aggressive headlights and lower front bumper. The side highlights the shark-fin-like outlets near the front wheel arches and the Trident badge near the C-pillar. The rear end gives out a sporty look with quad exhaust outlets and sleek taillights.

The Maserati Quattroporte GTS is an example of fine Italian craftsmanship and design, hence if you want more eyeballs rolling, make an entrance in this Italian luxury sports sedan. That said, the most practical saloon here is the Audi S8 L that gets the most space inside while also rocking huge proportions for providing the utmost comfort to the occupants inside. But it is the BMW 7 Series that gets the longest wheelbase of 126.4 inches. The Maserati, on the other hand, is the lightest sedan weighing just over 4,100 lbs, while the Panamera Turbo is the most compact sedan in the comparison. 

Some of the standout exterior features are as follows:

  • Sunroof
  • Surround-view camera
  • Daylight Running Lights (DRLs)
  • Bi-xenon front headlamps
  • LED Taillamps
  • Hi-pressure front headlamps washing system

2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Safety

8.0/10

Maserati not only pampers its buyers with lush and lavish vibes but also offers impeccable safety standards with its flagship Quattroporte GTS sedan. It focuses on getting more performance but also aims to keep the weight low without compromising on the strength and durability of the chassis. The only zonk is that the $100,000+ luxury sedan has no safety ratings, but there’s a plethora of standard safety equipment like:

  • Maserati Stability Program
  • Brake assist system
  • Rearview camera with dynamic gridlines
  • Front/rear parking sensors
  • Forward collision warning plus
  • Adaptive cruise control with Stop and Go
  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Active blind-spot monitoring system

2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS vs 2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo

The Porsche Panamera Turbo is more engaging and athletic, but that doesn’t trade off opulence and comfort. The Panamera is a better driver’s car, more sporty and exhilarating than the Quattroporte. But it comes with a hefty price tag too. 

2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS vs 2021 BMW 7 Series

The BMW 7 Series, despite the M-badge-inspired performance upgrades, stands as a classy and deluxe sedan through its looks. The interiors are gorgeous, and unlike the Quattroporte GTS, there’s negligible usage of hard plastics.

2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS vs 2021 Audi S8 L

Despite weighing the heaviest, the Audi S8 L can outclass the Maserati luxury sports sedan in terms of performance, interiors, and tech bits. The handsome subtle exteriors might bore the eyes easily, this is where the elegant, Italian Quattroporte GTS gets an edge with bold and distinctive styling.

2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Final Verdict

The 2021 Maserati Quattroporte GTS stands out with a sporty and aggressive Italian design, that isn’t a frequent view on the roads. Thus the buyers would be rewarded with a peculiar crowd reaction, while the V8 has enough grunt and rumble to catch anyone’s attention. The interiors are refined and lavish with high-quality materials, but a lot has been borrowed from the Stellantis inventory. The V8 punches out impressive power, yet the Italian luxury sports sedan feels sluggish to the class.
