2014 Maserati Ghibli

As far as luxury sedans go, the 2014 Maserati Ghibli offers a distinctive appearance, a variety of engine options and solid performance numbers unsurpassed in its market group.

To coin a French term in describing another feature of the Italian made Ghibli, the "piece de resistance" is its high fuel efficiency. Normally at this price point automakers last concern is gas mileage.2014-Maserati-Ghibli-leaving-home A

Exterior

The 2014 Ghibli appears to be a sporty version of the Quattroporte. That would entail a mixture of flowing lines and elegant appointments.

The front fascia has definite feline characteristics when looking at the grille and headlamp combination. The grille in particular seems to have been inspired by the current Gran Turismo. It also hints at a retro trip to the 1950's A6 GCS models. Maserati's C-pillar treatment remains and you cannot miss the Saetta Maserati emblem in the center.

The side view begins with the traditional vents on the front fender and its contoured lines run all the way around to where it meets the rear taillights.

Interior

The interior of the Ghibli mirrors its exterior with the same grouping of sporty touches and elegant features.

There is a 3 spoke steering wheel, carbon fiber insertions, seats manufactured using top quality leather and a wide array of high tech instrumentation in excess of anything Maserati has ever created. This begins with a large info screen that dominates its center dash.
