While it's smaller and more affordable than the Quattroporte, the Maserati Ghibli competes against many of the same cars, though that's due more to Maserati's unique balance of luxury, design, performance, and price, than any inherent shortcomings or strengths of the competition.

The Mercedes-Benz CLS Class and BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe offer more mainstream takes on both luxury and design, and while they aren't as well-finished or as striking, they are likely to be more dependable, more efficient, and less expensive to own in the long run.

The Mercedes-Benz CL Class eschews the four-door coupe fad for true two-door coupe status--but manages to behave like a four-door anyway, with a surprisingly large back seat--and of course it offers world-class luxury, materials, equipment, and performance.

Audi's new RS 7 is overmatched to the Ghibli's power output, but otherwise, hits many of the same marks, with a sleek, elegant exterior, a refined, modern interior, and standard, rather than available, all-wheel drive.
