What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The Quattroporte has a fantastic V8 engine, quick acceleration and everyday usability

Against High-speed gearshifts are jerky, the footwell is cramped and there's only room for four people

Verdict Maserati’s pedigree makes this a highly desirable and exclusive luxury car

Go for… Executive GT won’t cost much more, but comes with more kit

Avoid… High-milers with suspect service record

Maserati Quattroporte Saloon
  • 1. Retained values are good, so buying one won’t be cheap
  • 2. At low speed, the automatic gearchange is fine, but it gets jerky the faster you're going
  • 3. Avoid high-milers, because the free servicing deal only applies if the car does fewer than 14,000 miles a year
  • 4. Where necessary, check that the door handles were replaced as part of a manufacturer's recall
  • 5. The way the rear seats are moulded means they're strictly for two people only
