For The Ghibli brings Maserati motoring to a new generation of executive car buyers. It’s quick, stylish and the interior looks and feels suitably luxurious.

Against It’s disappointing to drive, with a fidgety ride, poor body control and vague steering. It also doesn’t have much rear-seat space and most rivals are more refined.

Maserati Ghibli Saloon
33 5stars

The Maserati Ghibli is a desirable and refreshingly different executive saloon, with strong performance and a stylish interior. Unfortunately its many flaws make it difficult to recommend over its more mainstream rivals.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The two petrol-engined models are quick and sound great, but are largely irrelevant to UK buyers; it’s the diesel that’ll account for most of the Ghibli’s sales.

The German manufacturers and Jaguar dominate the executive world because their cars are great to live with and they add up as company cars, so the Ghibli has a battle on its hands. It puts up a decent fight, though, with competitive carbon dioxide emissions and claimed fuel economy figures.

Leasing costs are crucial, and Maserati is confident that, thanks to predicted healthy resale values, the Ghibli matches the figures of its main rivals.

The lure of saying 'I drive a Maserati' is certainly a strong one, and the Ghibli looks the part, too. If you can put up with the gruff engine, poor ride and the tight rear-seat space, you’ll definitely cut a dash in the office car park.
