It’s no secret that Italy has produced some of the finest vehicles you will ever drive. After all: the country is known for its style and engineering innovations. People from all walks of life will have owned at least one Italian vehicle in their lives.
Today, I want to talk to you about an intriguing new Italian luxury saloon. The Maserati Quattroporte is the brand’s newest addition to the model lineup. And it’s one that is sure to take on the likes of the BMW 7-Series and the Audi S8.
So, what’s this new model all about? And should we go out and buy one? Well, the short answer to the latter question is yes. Let me talk you through what the Maserati Quattroporte has to offer.
Well, regardless of the type of fuel your chosen engine uses, one fact is certain. You’ll enjoy driving a well-performing vehicle! Even the diesel power plant is a 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel. The gasoline options range from V6 to V8 turbocharged.
Performance is high on the list of priorities for the Maserati Quattroporte. Thrill-seekers will no doubt opt for the V8 unit. It will get you from 0-60 mph in a mere 4.6 seconds! The mid-range petrol V6 isn’t too bad either at 5.0 seconds flat.
2016 Maserati Quattroporte Performance
The FIAT owned luxury brand has taken plenty of feedback on board for the latest Quattroporte. It seems they’ve spent a lot of time researching what luxury saloon owners want out of a car.
They’ve also taken on board some tuning tips from online communities like www.torquecars.co.uk. For example, both diesel and petrol engines come with turbochargers as standard. So, what’s the car like to drive?
On the road
Despite its large size, the Maserati Quattroporte is surprisingly agile on the road. That’s thanks, in part, to the adaptive suspension setup. The car also sports a firm but comfortable ride for everyday driving. This isn’t a vehicle that will make your teeth chatter over potholes!
The thing I love about the steering is how responsive it is. I took one out for a long-term test drive last month. I enjoyed how it made me feel connected with the road. Even though it’s got a plethora of electronic handling and driving aids!

More electronics than you can shake a stick at
One of the attractive features of the Maserati Quattroporte is the abundance of gadgetry. As standard, the car comes with a raft of electronic features. Examples include an eight-speed automatic transmission, LED headlights, and active cruise control.
It also comes with a vehicle tracking system. That means if someone took the car without permission, you and the police could track its location.
Perhaps the biggest reason people will buy this car is the luxury and comfort it offers. Remember that this car is, to all intents and purposes, a limousine.
I recommend taking one out for a drive today. You will love it!
