2014 Maserati Ghibli Reviewed by Consumer Reports [Video]
That's because the Italian premium brand actually has something a little bit more tangible, the new Ghibli sedan which starts a new chapter for the company.
Designed as a sort of alternative to BMW's 5 Series or Audi A6, the Ghibli is cheaper than the cars they used to offer, starting at about $75,000.
Consumer Reports instantly notes the new car is a sort of blend of elements from Maserati's family members. There's an infotainment system from the Chrysler 300 and an engine from Ferrari, which is brand new and shared with the new Quattroporte. In fact, the two sedans share about 45 to 50 percent of parts, from steering to suspension and plenty of interior bits and pieces.
Objectively speaking, the Ghibli could be inferior to the diverse Germans which come in lots more flavors, but we'd still buy it for two very good reasons: it looks good and it sounds even better.
