Which Ghibli does Edmunds recommend?

We recommend that you not be swayed by the Ghibli's low base price. The base engine's 345 horsepower isn't all that impressive, especially considering its roots in the Ferrari engine line. Instead, opt for the 424-hp S or S Q4, and check the box for the optional GranSport trim package.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

The 2019 Maserati Ghibli injects a dose of Italian style and flair into the genteel world of midsize luxury sedans dominated by its European and Asian rivals. With all the expected trappings of a luxury shuttle wrapped in a seductive design, a sonorous engine sound and sporty handling, the Ghibli makes a refreshing alternative to the segment's standard-bearers.

For sedan buyers, the Maserati checks all the boxes. It delivers robust acceleration from a turbocharged V6 engine, and exceptionally balanced handling means you'll often look for the longer, more winding road to your destination. Factor in a roomy, quiet cabin, and the Ghibli also makes for a practical family sedan suited for long-distance travel.

The Ghibli falls short of its competitors in a key area, however. While the interior looks nice from a distance, and there are expansive opportunities to select colors and materials to taste, the quality of cabin materials and interfaces (knobs, switches, dials) feels a bit more downmarket than we'd expect of a $75,000 sedan. Nitpicking? Perhaps, but it's a detail not lost on the Maserati's competitors. The Ghibli's base V6, meanwhile, isn't quite as ferocious as some rivals, and you'll really want to step up to the uprated V6 of the Ghibli S.

But as an alternative to the established field of more buttoned-down luxury sedans, the Ghibli's sporty handling and exotic pedigree offer a unique fix.

2019 Maserati Ghibli models

The 2019 Maserati Ghibli is a midsize luxury sedan sold in three trims: base, GranLusso and GranSport. The base model is well-equipped right out of the box, with standard features that include heated seats, leather upholstery, navigation and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capability. From there, buyers can choose the luxurious GranLusso or the thrilling GranSport model. A turbocharged V6 powers all Ghiblis, though the S and SQ 4 variants develop more power.

Each of the above trims is available in three distinct powertrains. The base Ghibli is motivated by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine (345 horsepower, 369 lb-ft of torque) that drives the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The same engine powers the S, though it's more powerful in this application (424 hp, 428 lb-ft). The S Q4 adds all-wheel drive to the S model.

Standard features on the base Ghibli include 19-inch wheels, automatic xenon headlights, LED taillights, a sunroof, automatic wipers, a rearview camera, remote engine start, keyless entry and ignition, auto-dimming mirrors, a 7-inch driver information display, a power-adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, power-adjustable and heated front seats, 60/40-split folding rear seats, leather upholstery, driver-seat memory functions, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Also standard are a navigation system, an 8.4-inch touchscreen and an eight-speaker audio system with satellite radio, a USB port, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Safety features include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, and blind-spot monitoring.

From there, buyers can choose between the luxury-themed GranLusso or the enthusiast-oriented GranSport. Both build off the base model's features, though each comes with adaptive LED headlights and a 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.

Standard features for the GranLusso include chrome exterior styling elements, laminated (i.e., quieter) rear glass, a hands-free trunk, power soft-closing doors, a power rear sunshade, open-pore wood accents, upgraded leather upholstery, additional leather trim, a heated steering wheel with wood, and ventilated front seats.

The GranSport includes 20-inch wheels, red-painted brake calipers, adaptive dampers, aerodynamic enhancements, column-mounted shift paddles, a sport steering wheel, sport seats, and leather coverings on the dashboard and door armrests.

Many of the GranLusso's and GranSport's upgrades can be added to the other models for an additional cost. Other stand-alone options include 19-, 20- and 21-inch wheels; carbon-fiber shift paddles and doorsill trim; heated rear seats; a power rear sunshade; a rear armrest with USB ports; and a 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkins premium audio system. A Driver Assistance package is available on all trims, adding a 360-degree parking camera, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, and a blind-spot monitoring system that can change the direction of the Ghibli if you attempt to merge into a lane with a vehicle in the blind spot.

The S and S Q4 models are essentially the same as their counterparts with the base engine, though all trims come with upgraded brakes.

Scorecard

Overallundefined / 5

Driving

If you want a truly pulse-quickening Ghibli, you'll have to step up to the 424-hp S model. This base Ghibli's power is merely adequate. But the handling is sensational and perfectly balanced at all times.

Acceleration

The turbo V6 provides a smooth flow of thrust from 3,000 to 6,500 rpm. The exhaust is appropriately growly in Sport.

Braking

The pedal has some softness early in the stroke, but the brakes do a good job of hauling the Ghibli down from speed with zero drama. There's no pedal fade.

Steering

The steering effort was a tad too light, and our test car had a rubbery sensation off-center. It felt artificial, like it was electric. But it's hydraulic. Still, the Ghibli goes where it's pointed.

Handling

Handling is precise, willing and perfectly balanced. The Ghibli is easy to control at the limit and exhibits almost zero understeer. As midsize luxury sport sedans go, this Maserati is one of the best.

Drivability

Throttle delivery is smooth. The eight-speed automatic is happy to kick down a gear, but it could use stronger throttle blips to create smoother rev-matched downshifts.

Comfort

The Ghibli is quiet and comfortable, especially considering it's an Italian sport sedan. The front and rear seats are well-padded. The turbo V6 only gets loud when the Sport button is activated. The Normal suspension setting is just soft enough.

Seat comfort

The front and rear seats are thickly padded and comfy. The front buckets have good lumbar support. Your body settles into these seats, forming instant lateral support to keep you secure when going around turns.

Ride comfort

The adjustable suspension should satisfy most people. Normal mode isn't overly cushy, but it smooths out the big bumps. Sport mode is definitely more jiggly.

Noise & vibration

The Ghibli is very quiet in routine driving. But the summer tires do produce some extra humming over coarse surfaces.

Interior

The Ghibli's interior isn't as sumptuous as we thought it would be, and there are some ergonomic oddities. But there's plenty of room and good outward visibility as well as some useful storage.

Ease of use

The steering wheel has an overly large diameter. It's hard to see the buttons for the climate controls as well as those next to the console shifter. The left-side paddle shifter interferes with the turn-signal stalk operation.

Getting in/getting out

It's easy to get in and out of the front, but the rear doors are small. Your feet can get caught on the doorsill on your way in. The center console also protrudes rearward in back, which can make it hard to slide across to the other rear seat.

Roominess

Headroom in the front and rear is excellent, even for tall people. There's good kneeroom for the driver as well as decent elbow space up front. But rear footroom is poor.

Visibility

The narrow and short windshield pillars allow an excellent view out the front. The rear of the car sweeps up, so the rear window is wide but short.

Quality

The interior could be better. The Chrysler-sourced switchgear brings down the quality level of the Ghibli. We also noticed some sharp edges on the trim, and one car had a rattle from the back deck.

Utility

The better-than-average trunk space, split-folding rear seats and rear-seat pass-through give the Ghibli surprising cargo-carrying flexibility and utility.

Small-item storage

There's a large center armrest bin with an air vent inside to keep small items cool. The door pockets are reasonably deep, but they're narrow.

Cargo space

The trunk is bigger than those of many rivals. The split-folding rear seats come standard and enhance utility.

Technology

An 8.4-inch touchscreen display appears lifted from the Dodge-Jeep-Chrysler family, but that's not a bad thing. The big surface area and quick response make it easy to use on the road. The optional audio systems are legitimate audiophile offerings, especially the 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkins surround-sound system.

    Maserati Ghibli vs. the competition

    Maserati Ghibli vs. BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

    It's hard to beat the BMW's well-rounded character. Interior quality is top-notch, it's supremely comfortable, and it comes loaded with standard features. The Ghibli is also quite comfortable but can't match the 6 Series for cabin quality. The 6 Series' V8 also has the power advantage, especially when it comes to low-end torque. But while the BMW's four-door coupe style is certainly distinctive, it doesn't compare to the Ghibli's more sinuous lines.

    Compare Maserati Ghibli & BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe features

    Maserati Ghibli vs. Audi A7

    If you want maximum practicality in a four-door coupe-style sedan, the A7 has it. It offers nearly 30 percent more cargo capacity than the Ghibli, along with more room for passengers. The A7's turbo V6 isn't as spectacular as the Maserati's, but it is exceptionally smooth and more efficient. The A7 isn't the kind of car you'll whip through turns quite like the Ghibli, but it's athletic and well-balanced. Again, however, the Ghibli's design stands apart from the more sedate Audi.

    Compare Maserati Ghibli & Audi A7 features

    Maserati Ghibli vs. Jaguar XF

    Both the XF and the Ghibli are comfortable cruising machines and capable of invigorating performance, but the Ghibli's handling prowess and engine song give it a more emotional edge. Both cars rate about the same in overall passenger space. The Jaguar, however, costs significantly less than the Ghibli, and it doesn't sacrifice much performance or practicality in the bargain.

    Should I lease or buy a 2019 Maserati Ghibli?

    Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
