2017 Maserati Quattroporte vs. Its Competition

2017 Maserati Quattroporte
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Quattroporte competes in rarefied air with exclusive sedans that are thrilling and gorgeous.

Among the leaders are the Porsche Panamera and Mercedes-Benz S-Class that can be as fast or luxurious as your pocketbooks will allow.

The Panamera and S-Class both offer potent powertrains and executive packages that Maserati hasn't yet matched.

The BMW 7-Series now includes V-12 power that we haven't yet driven, which could propel the luxury sedan into the stratosphere.

Both the Audi A8 and XJ are due for an update soon, each offers their own take on executive luxury.

Quick Specs
The 2017 Maserati Quattroporte doesn't ruin what we always liked: beautiful lines, Ferrari heart. Thanks for that.
8.0
The 2017 Audi S8 is the super sedan by which others are measured.
8.6
The 2017 BMW 7-Series has a deceivingly conservative wrapper for its radically reengineered underpinnings and tech-centric cabin.
7.4
The 2017 Jaguar XJ carries forward the luxury banner from the British automaker in a way that we appreciate—swaddled in leather, massaged all the way.
8.4
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class lineup is more diverse than it's ever been and is still the benchmark by which all full-size luxury cars should be measured.
With better looks, more efficient and powerful engines, and a less cluttered interior, the 2017 Porsche Panamera promises to be a better carn than the fun sport sedan it's always been.
