Maserati Quattroporte review

Watch our video review of the all-new Maserati Quattroporte as it goes on sale in the UK

Italian supercar maker, Maserati has redesigned its slow-selling four-door saloon, the Quattroporte, in an effort to boost sales and make the brand more appealing to a wider market.

The car is new from the ground up, and aside from the exterior tweaks and large gaping grille; the updated Quattroporte is bigger, more luxurious and lighter on fuel.

The interior has been overhauled too, along with a pair of all-new Ferrari-built engines. There’s an entry-level 404bhp twin-turbo V6 and flagship 523bhp V8 – both of which get that addictive Italian exhaust note we’ve come to expect from Maseratis of late.

But what is it like to drive? Check out the video from the launch in a snowy Southern France, for our verdict on the new four-door Maserati.

Exactly my thoughts. Shame about the looks now:-(

when people hated the old xj for old fashioned looks, small boot, the new one came along, they hated the rear end, low rear roofline, when there is nothing wrong with it but they preferred the old one. it shows you can never please them all even if you tried. this maserati is a good looking smart car and has a breathtaking interior.
