Quantum improvement in ergonomics
All Quattroporte models received a light facelift for the 2009 model year
The reviewers across the board are impressed with the sleek design and intimate interior of the 2010 Maserati Quattroporte.
The 2010 Maserati Quattroporte is available in three trims: Quattroporte, Quattroporte S, and the latest Quattroporte GT S. All of the models feature styling elements Automobile Magazine calls "automotive art," while Edmunds claims that the Maserati Quattroporte features "a delectable aesthetic cocktail of classic sport-sedan proportions and inimitable Italian flair." Car and Driver is a fan of the unique Italian design, noticing a "triangular taillamp theme [that] is sure to be controversial, but we love them purely because they are so darn Italian." For the Maserati Quattroporte GT S, Road and Track points out the differences in the form of "20-in. wheels (with a multi-trident design) and a new front bumper whose black grille has black vertical slats that curve inward, like those of the GranTurismo." Automobile Magazine highlights the "black finish has also been applied to the door pillars, belt line, door handles, and exhaust pipes." It is easy to say that everyone agrees with Automobile Magazine when they claim that the Quattroporte is "one of the most gorgeous four-door cars on the planet."
You might not realize that there have been differences between the QPs over the years, and they have now settled on the design changes made last year, possibly the best combination of all the subtle enhancements. Jalopnik tells us that the Maserati Quattroporte's "primary and secondary controls for both the passenger and driver have been refined in order to enhance ease of operation," while Motor Trend notices a "quantum improvement in ergonomics brought by Bose's new multimedia/nav system," a standard feature on the Maserati Quattroporte base and S models. Car and Driver reviewers also mention "minor but significant changes to the Quattroporte's interior" maintained from last year. On the other hand, Edmunds says that the Maserati Quattroporte's interior controls "aren't likely to challenge Toyota for ergonomic supremacy anytime soon." However, Edmunds follows up by mentioning "some lovely details" inside the cabin, including aluminum pedals that "look like sculpture and the suede-upholstered rim of the steering wheel [that] feels great."
The 2010 Maserati Quattroporte is a stunning package with unmistakable looks.
