Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
Most of Maserati's competitors, including Audi, BMW and Mercedes, offer a plug-in hybrid for similar or less money, making the Ghibli quite a pricey choice in comparison. However, the Ghibli is expected to hold on to its value against depreciation as well as all its competitors except the Mercedes E-Class.
Sadly, while the official 34.9mpg figure for the hybrid Ghibli is better than its petrol-only stablemates, it can’t get anywhere near the claimed figures of the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) alternatives, which can all provide a useful amount of electric-only driving to reduce running costs.
