Exclusivity and customization are the name of the game for the 2009 Maserati Quattroporte lineup, which means the options list is long and the standard features are very high-end.
The Maserati Quattroporte line offers a very desirable set of base features, and moving up to the higher trim levels only adds to the luxury. Car and Driver notes that these latest Maserati 2009 sport sedans "will be offered in base and Executive trim levels, [with] the latter bringing rear heated and cooled seats, wood tray tables, four-zone climate control, and more." Edmunds reviewers state that the standard features on the base 2009 Maserati Quattroporte include "adaptive bi-xenon headlamps, foglamps, heated exterior mirrors, rear park assist...leather upholstery" and "14-way power-adjustable heated front seats with driver memory." All 2009 Maserati Quattroportes also feature a "Maserati/Bose [multimedia] system [that] is easier to work with than that of any given German sedan" and controls the Maserati Quattroporte's "MP3, USB, and CD capabilities," according to Car and Driver. Edmunds rounds out the base Maserati 2009 Quattroporte features list, reporting that "a voice-activated navigation system" and "satellite radio" come standard. Moving up to the 2009 Maserati Quattroporte S doesn't add much in the way of features; Edmunds says a "Wenge wood interior trim" is the only non-performance difference between the Maserati Quattroporte S and the base version.
When it comes to options, the 2009 Maserati Quattroporte doesn't disappoint. TheCarConnection.com's editors point out that Maserati Quattroportes are built to order, and Edmunds says the "cabin can be customized like few other production vehicles at its price point" with a "vast array of cabin trims and leather colors." Edmunds also comments that "the options list is as long as the average waiting time for an Italian train," and if you want something not on the regular list, then "Maserati can probably figure out a way to make it happen." For those interested in the top-end Maserati Quattroporte GT S model, Automobile Magazine reports that it still "utilizes the Bose Multimedia System like other 2009 Quattroporte models," and it offers the same extensive customization options.
The only downside to the vast array of personalization features is that you’ll have to wait for your own 2009 Quattroporte to arrive.
