The interior layout, fit and finish
The Maserati Ghibli now comes with a revised 10.1in touchscreen infotainment system that’s a marked improvement over the original one. It's relatively responsive and logically laid out, and the BMW iDrive-style rotary controller and shortcut buttons make the system quick to navigate on the move. You also get the latest smartphone integration, which is a huge bonus.
It's a shame, then, that the materials surrounding it are not so slick. Maserati prides itself on luxuriousness and exclusivity, but too many of the plastics in the Ghibli feel lightweight and rather cheap-feeling in standard GT guise. Pricer Modena and Trofeo versions get extended leather covering the dashboard and door cards that improves matters.
