2017 Maserati Ghibli vs. Its Competition

2017 Maserati Ghibli
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

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 RS 7 outpunches 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 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 Jaguar XF features a lean aluminum body, an adult-tuned ride, and sculpted body panels.

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

8.6
The 2017 Audi A7’s combination of sexy exterior style and healthy interior practicality make for a grand touring luxury sedan par excellence.
6.8
The 2017 BMW 6-Series is a luxurious jack of all trades (speed, style, comfort, and quality) but a master of one: grand touring.
7.6
The aluminum-bodied 2017 Jaguar XF is no lightweight when it comes to nimble handling or rear-seat space.
7.2
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is the first of its kind and in need of a makeover. It's still timeless, but it's also time for what's next.
