2015 Maserati Ghibli vs. Its Competition

2015 Maserati Ghibli
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

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.

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.

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 Infiniti Q70 has a lush design language and options like silver-dusted wood trim.

Lastly, the Jaguar XF will be new and much improved for 2016, but the 2015 model still has an evocative shape and a glamorous interior to go with its scalding supercharged powerplants.

The 2015 Maserati Ghibli has panache to burn, but back-seat space is tight and handling isn't quite up to the best in the mid-size class.

The A7 is handsome no matter how you slice it, but it's the brawn S7 and brutish RS7 that really gets our blood flowing.

Whether chosen as a coupe, convertible, or four-door Gran Coupe, the 2015 BMW 6-Series offers dynamic driving and massive style.
