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.

Overview

The Maserati Ghibli looks swanky and could be the departure from the norm some buyers seek, especially in V8 Trofeo form. However, the GT Hybrid is off the pace when compared with plug-in hybrid luxury car rivals, which can save you more on company car tax and are mostly less expensive too.

  • V6 and V8 versions sound special
  • Good front space and adjustment
  • Striking looks
  • Lack of long distance refinement
  • Rivals have a better blend of ride comfort and handling
  • Expensive to run
