Maserati Ghibli S Q4 Is A Cross Between Elegance and Sportscar
The 'North African Wind' Maserati Ghibli is named after is fitting. Speed and luxury are what this beauty is all about. Between the fine lines and fierce curves displayed from all interior and exterior angles this car is setup to separate itself from the BMW's, Jags, Mercedes and the rest of the 4-door line up. While not expert but haven owned most in this class, categorically this car tops all. While I am sure there are nit pickers, they are no doubt the minority.Some features on the exquisite Q4 include stunning 19-inch or 20-inch alloy wheels, automatic xenon headlights, LED running lights and taillights, automatic wipers, a sunroof, auto-dimming mirrors, key-less entry and ignition, cruise control, very usable dual-zone automatic climate control, a easy to use power-adjustable steering wheel, rich leather upholstery, eight-way power-adjustable heated front seats, 60/40-split folding rear seats, Bluetooth, a rear-view camera (not so great), an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a navigation system and an eight-speaker audio system with a CD/DVD player, satellite radio, an SD card reader, a USB port and an auxiliary audio jack. Leather everywhere coats the interior with a modern sporty feel from all seats of the car. Once driven one easily falls in love with, well most everything. All four (or five seats) put you in the ready.The Ghibli S Q4 is a special experience as noticed by many in the drive, roadway, freeway, in a parking lot along side all the Germans. But most of all from the cockpit the experience is simply not really duplicated by another. Quality make just be the Maserati Ghibli's middle name. The car is very quick and quite agile while in Sport mode easily hitting 0-60 mpg in 4.6 s. The Q4 comes standard with rear bias all-wheel-drive powered by a Ferrari built 3.0-litre V6 engine, twin-turbocharged 410 PS (300 kW; 410 hp). Top speed comes in just shy of 180 mph. Have Fun.

The Maserati Ghibli is a very flashy, brilliantly designed vehicle when you see it from the outside. It is eye-catching and beautiful just like the big brothers and sisters in the trofeo, grand turismo, quattroporte, etc. It just won't leave you crippled in the pocketbook like its siblings. The twin turbo V6 Ferrari Engine built in Modena really sounds nice and gives it a good growl! It really has a nice sound, and aggressive demeanor. The bad...there are some fit and finish problems that I have seen with the vehicle. The brakes squeal like nobody's business, but I can handle that - they have to stop a performance sedan that can move very quickly so the brakes must stop the darn thing. The blu tooth and iPhone attachments rarely work. The speaker system sounds worse than that of a corolla. There are little quirks and fails within the electrical systems (windows, alarms, etc.). If they paid a bit more attention to detail, the quirks would be by far outweighed by the performance. In closing: I own a Maserati! No one on my cul de sac has one. I look rich when I'm driving it! I have been stopped by the cops just for them to ask "what is that thing?" So, if they got the squeaks and squeals and fails taken care of, I would own a perfect Maserati.
