Passenger frontal airbag is designed to deploy without harming a child
One would be extremely disturbed at the thought of sacrificing a 2010 Maserati Quattroporte in the name of crash-testing, but NHTSA and the IIHS have no such qualms. No tests are done on the Maserati Quattroporte yet, due to the limited production runs and exorbitant price tags, which create more realistic barriers for the crash-testing agencies. The 2010 Maserati Quattroporte does, however, offer a few standard safety features that should interest the safety-conscious.
Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that the Maserati Quattroporte offers the latest in safety equipment, especially when it comes to airbags. Motor Trend reviewers claim that the 2010 Maserati Quattroporte's "passenger frontal airbag is designed to deploy without harming a child while protecting heavier than average occupants," thanks to a "two-stage design [that] senses what's hitting it" and alters its deployment in order to provide the optimal level of inflation and protection. Aside from the high-tech, two-stage airbag design, Edmunds finds that the Quattroporte "comes well stocked with safety features," including standard "stability control and antilock brakes."
The editors at TheCarConnection.com noticed that other than the usual fare of safety equipment, the standard high-intensity bi-xenon headlamps offer tremendous illumination power, which greatly aids nighttime visibility. Driver visibility from within the Maserati Quattroporte is also enhanced by the "rear park assist" feature that Edmunds reviewers claim is standard on all Maserati Quattroportes.
No one buying the 2010 Maserati Quattroporte considers safety to be a priority, but all the standard fare is provided.
