Which Quattroporte does Edmunds recommend?

Though the standard V6 engine might be satisfying for most buyers, we can't help but recommend the fire-breathing V8 in the Quattroporte GTS. The GTS is available with both the GranLusso and GranSport packages. Our preference is the GranLusso thanks to the safety equipment it offers (forward collision warning and mitigation with emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning) and luxury items like ventilated seats and a rear sunshade. This might be the most expensive version of the Quattroporte, but it's also the most desirable.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

Big, plush and a feast for the eyes, the 2017 Maserati Quattroporte is a Ferrari-powered sedan that competes with some of the top luxury flagship sedans on the market today. For 2017, it gets a refreshed look via updated bumpers and some optional safety tech such as adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning with mitigation. On the inside, it also gets a new 8.4-inch touchscreen, new rotary infotainment controls and some updated interior materials.

Yet rival sedans from BMW and Mercedes-Benz have been a step ahead of the Quattroporte for years, and we don't really see that changing for 2017. From getting latest tech and safety features to choosing from a variety of engines and configurations, these rival sedans just have more on offer. That said, there's still room in the executive sedan class for a bit of Italian flair, and that alone might be worth the trade-off.

2017 Maserati Quattroporte configurations

The 2017 Maserati Quattroporte is a large luxury sedan with three available trim levels: S, S Q4 and GTS. With the S and S Q4, you can go with the standard equipment or upgrade to the GranLusso or GranSport packages.

In simple terms, the GranLusso is a more luxurious version of a trim level, while the GranSport is more performance-oriented. The range-topping GTS has no base version; just choose between the GranLusso and GranSport. Whatever your package preference, the Quattroporte is a stylish and attractive choice — especially when you hear the soundtrack from the two available engines.

At the bottom of the trim-level ladder, you've got the Quattroporte S, which comes with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 (404 horsepower, 406 pound-feet of torque); an eight-speed automatic transmission (attached to rear-wheel drive); 19-inch wheels; adaptive automatic xenon headlights; automatic wipers; LED running lights and taillights; heated, power-folding auto-dimming mirrors; a sunroof; front and rear parking sensors; blind-spot monitoring; remote start; an adaptive suspension; and keyless entry and ignition.

On the inside, you get dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, heated and power-adjustable front seats, driver-seat memory functions, a folding rear seat, a power-adjustable steering wheel, wood interior trim, power rear side-window sunshades, ambient interior lighting, Bluetooth, a new 8.4-inch touchscreen, a navigation system, a Wi-Fi hotspot and a 10-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.

For the Quattroporte S, the GranLusso package adds to the standard equipment with 20-inch wheels, chrome exterior trim, black brake calipers, ventilated front seats, power-adjustable pedals, a wood and leather steering wheel, premium interior leather upholstery, a simulated-suede headliner, a power rear sunshade, forward collision warning and mitigation with emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera and lane departure warning.

The GranSport offers a more performance-oriented vibe by building on the base S trim with unique 20-inch wheels, a black grille, black side skirts, red brake calipers, a sport steering wheel, sport front seats and paddle shifters on the steering wheel.

The Quattroporte S Q4 is a small step up from the standard S, and it adds all-wheel drive, a power trunklid, shift paddles, heated rear seats and a heated wood and leather steering wheel. The GranLusso and GranSport packages essentially add the same equipment to the S Q4 that they do with the base S trim.

At the top of the trim-level list is the Quattroporte GTS which gets the 3.8-liter turbo V8 (523 hp, 524 lb-ft), rear-wheel drive and some GTS badging. With the GTS, you are required to choose between the GranLusso and GranSport, which add basically the same equipment as they do on the lower trim levels.

As with most other luxury sedans in this class, there are a lot of additional options to choose from. If you're so inclined, you can get equipment including 21-inch wheels, four-zone automatic climate control, an array of wood and carbon-fiber interior trim pieces, folding rear-seat tables, a rear center console in place of the center seat (dropping passenger capacity from five to four), a rear-seat entertainment system and a Bowers & Wilkins premium audio system. Most of the upper trim-level equipment can be added as stand-alone items on lower trim levels.


Whether you go with the standard V6 on base trim levels or the aggressive V8 in the top-of-the-line Quattroporte GTS, there's plenty of power on tap. Sport mode sharpens transmission responses and belts out a few additional spine-tingling sounds from the exhaust pipes.


Adaptive suspension gives you the ability to adjust the ride stiffness in the Quattroporte, and plush seats make for a comfortable ride. Avoid the bigger wheels if you can, though, because they decrease ride quality significantly.


The Quattroporte has a roomy, well-appointed and likable cabin. There are nearly endless customization options for interior materials and all sorts of plush available features such as fold-out tables and quad-zone automatic climate control.


With 18.7 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk, the Maserati Quattroporte leads the large-luxury-sedan segment. Folding rear seats make transporting longer items an easy task. It is, however, one of the longest and widest vehicles in the segment, so it's a bit harder to maneuver in tight spaces.


The new touchscreen for 2017 seems a bit out of place. Along with several buttons and knobs, it's sourced from Chrysler, and despite user-friendly controls it feels a bit subpar for the class. There are also several new, previously unavailable, safety features such as forward collision mitigation.

More about the 2017 Maserati Quattroporte

The 2017 Maserati Quattroporte is a powerful, good-looking and viscerally appealing large luxury sedan. As you would expect of a car in this class, it has a comfortable and quiet cabin, but the Quattroporte also possesses head-turning style and an evocative exhaust note that will have you blasting through every tunnel you find.

It's no surprise that the 2017 Maserati Quattroporte is expensive. It's supposed to be. A flagship luxury sedan from Maserati with a Ferrari-derived engines isn't likely to be a candidate for a low-cost monthly lease deal.

There are three trim levels for the 2017 Quattroporte: S, S Q4 and GTS. The base Quattroporte S comes with a respectably powerful V6 engine and decent levels of equipment. The all-wheel-drive variant known as the S Q4 isn't much pricier. The GranLusso (luxury) and GranSport (sport) are the two main options categories, available for both the S and S Q4, and they're the only two choices for the range-topping GTS. Thankfully, the GTS comes with the highly desirable V8 powertrain that adds a heaping helping of Ferrari personality to the Quattroporte.

After you've selected a trim level, there are lots of stand-alone options and custom design choices you can make, such as upholstery color, wheel selection and even the kind of wood you want on the dash. All of that is pretty par for the course, though — most competitors have similar equipment offerings and structures.

Several German rivals (and even a few British ones) offer similar levels of equipment to the 2017 Maserati Quattroporte with similar performance numbers, lower price tags and a bit more refinement, too. But this year the Quattroporte gets some updated styling, a new infotainment interface and some additional safety features. If you're looking for an executive flagship sedan and want something different, use Edmunds to help find the perfect Quattroporte.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Maserati Quattroporte?

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.
