2016 Maserati Quattroporte vs. Its Competition

2016 Maserati Quattroporte
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The luxury four-door coupe market is relatively new, but it has booming recently with new models being added frequently.

Though the last version of the Quattroporte was considered more of a formal sedan, the latest version occupies this new class.

Mercedes-Benz's CLS-Class, including the CLS63 AMG 4Matic, is perhaps the most familiar of the four-door coupes, and for good reason: it's a very good car, with comfort, power, and luxury in spades, and one of the originators of the category.

BMW's 6-Series Gran Coupe offers similar power and performance, including the range-topping M6 version which outdoes the Quattroporte GTS somewhat, while offering its own take on dramatic exterior styling and creature comforts.

The Audi A7 has S7 and RS 7 spice to add to this mix, and prices nearly overlap those of the base Maser.

Porsche's Panamera is perhaps the sportiest of this group, and it's also the most efficient, with a new plug-in S E-Hybrid model on offer since 2014.

Quick Specs
8.0
The 2016 Maserati Quattroporte is a rare sight, but shouldn't be—it's gorgeous, with sharp, Ferrari-flavored performance.
8.8
The 2016 Audi S7 is one of the most beautiful cars on the road today, plus it packs serious performance and abundant high-tech equipment.
8.4
The 2016 BMW M6 is a no-compromises kind of car for buyers unfazed by traditional sports car manufacturers. It's better suited for the streets than the track, and that's not a bad thing.
8.2
The 2016 Mercedes CLS-Class looks great—inside and out. But a new E-Class and more efficient powertrains may outrun the potent "four-door coupe" sooner rather than later.
8.2
The 2016 Porsche Panamera looks like a sports car and drives like one, yet it delivers executive-level ride comfort and cabin appointments.
