The 2018 Maserati Quattroporte gains a bit more power, some new safety features and options plus an updated electric power steering system.

Overview

The 2018 Maserati Quattroporte is the upscale Italian brand's full-size luxury sedan, and its name appropriately translates to "four doors." The vehicle slots above the smaller Ghibli in Maserati's growing lineup, which recently expanded to include the Levante SUV.

So how does the Quattroporte stack up? Although earlier Quattroporte models were low on tech compared to rivals, the 2018 version is fully up to date and includes a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist plus a forward-collision warning and automatic braking system. Adaptive LED headlights are now optional. Unfortunately, it still isn't quite a class leader: Some rivals have features like night vision and massaging seats, which remain unavailable in the Quattroporte.

And yet, if you're interested in a Quattroporte, you probably won't spend much time lamenting the lack of equipment. Instead, you'll be thinking about its beautiful lines, its richly appointed interior and its pair of muscular engines -- a 424-horsepower twin-turbocharged V6 in S models and a 523-hp twin-turbocharged V8 in the upscale GTS. The GTS is also offered with "GranSport" and "GranLusso" packages, which add cosmetic touches to bring a sportier look and a more luxurious one, respectively.

On the flip side, however, you have the Quattroporte's price. With the Ghibli slotting below the Quattroporte with a starting price in the high-$60,000 to low-$70,000 range, the Quattroporte now starts at over $108,000 with shipping, making it one of the more expensive sedans you can buy. Is it worth it? Objectively, probably not -- but it's hard to be objective when you hear the beautiful sedan's equally intoxicating exhaust note.
