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 Infiniti Q70 has a lush design language and options like silver-dusted wood trim.
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.
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.
Lastly, the Jaguar XF is new and much improved for 2016, with a lean aluminum body, an adult-tuned ride, and sculpted body panels.
