Product Overview

Maserati Ghibli III (Type M157) is an executive sedan in production from 2013. It is available with a range of inline-4, V6, and V8 engines that displaced 2.0 to 3.8 liters.
The successor to the Biturbo sedan, the Ghibli revives the nameplate of a coupe, which is a strange decision. Styling-wise, the car is just a smaller variant of the Quattroporte 6. Unfortunately, V8 is harder to come by and is only offered in the Trofeo. Instead, hybrid and diesel nonsenses have found their way to the Maserati.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Maserati Ghibli comes with double-wishbone at the front and multi-link at the rear. Combined with RWD, this setup provides one of the best handling characteristics and tuning capabilities.

For the 2021 model year, there are some mild interior mods, too. A new multimedia system running a more reliable, faster and higher-definition set-up, with increased connectivity. The 10.1in central touchscreen (there’s a rotary controller, too) is claimed to be a first in a car.

For some, only a petrol Ghibli will do. It's more fun to drive than the diesel alternative, but the fuel and tax costs are higher. Build quality is good and the seats are very comfortable, but tall adults have insufficient rear-seat leg and headroom. Boot space is decent, at 500 litres. Ghiblis need servicing every 12,500 miles.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Excellent petrol engines
  • Decent infotainment
Cons
  • Lack of standard equipment
  • Cheap to run

At £63,700 it's expensive beside most key rivals without the build quality to back this up. The ride is surprisingly poor on most UK roads (even the smoother ones) and the chassis feels clumsy beside the best rivals. The engine makes a not very nice noise at any revs but especially up at high revs.

Pros
  • Well-built interior
  • Rousing soundtrack
  • Decent driver appeal
Cons
  • Poor ride quality
  • Poor economy and emissions

Most noticeable changes are to the exterior styling. A new grille nicked from the stunning Alfieri concept car features, with fresh LED light units and tweaks to the bumpers. The top-level Ghibli S has been treated to a minor boost in power too, now producing 424bhp. Tweaks have also been made to the interior, but there's still lovely Italian leather galore.

Pros
  • Gorgeous looks
  • Sleek looks
  • Excellent handling
Cons
  • Diesel feels a little out of place
  • Alternatives are cheaper

The Ghibli is Maserati's attempt to take on premium German cars like the Mercedes CLS, Audi A7 and BMW Gran Coupe. It comes with a choice of three 3.0 engines: 330bhp and 404bhp twin-turbo V6 petrols and, crucially for Europe, a 272bhp turbodiesel V6.

Pros
  • Powerful diesel engine
  • Decent ride quality
Cons
  • Ridiculously fiddly infotainment system
  • Lacklustre rear headroom

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Ghibli is among the best in the class to drive and has more character than all of its rivals. Big news is the introduction of a new media system featuring an 8.4-inch capacitive touchscreen, with a far higher resolution. There's also a trio of new options packs. Sport makes it sportier (20-inch wheels, sports seats, adaptive suspension) and Carbon means you get more carbonfibre trim.

Pros
  • Sleek looks
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Good standard equipment
Cons
  • Lack of electronic safety system

The Maserati Ghibli is the cheapest car that the company sells in the UK. It is a sleek and sporty saloon that is an alternative to the likes of the BMW 5 Series and Jaguar XF. Most of what you'll see is shared with the larger and more expensive Quattroporte, which means it could hardly be more different from those alternatives.

Pros
  • Cheap to buy
  • Lots of standard equipment
Cons
  • Fiddly infotainment system
  • Expensive to run

For better or worse, the Ghibli Trofeo keeps you on your toes. Kudos to Maserati for using large, steering column-mounted paddles. Infotainment system is a reskinned version of Stellantis' Uconnect 5 suite. Headroom and legroom are in short supply no matter where you sit.

Pros
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Excellent infotainment tech
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Lack of finesse and composure
  • Cramped cabin
