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.
