Maserati’s “volume” seller fared very well in the front and side impact tests. The Ghibli even managed to offer Adequate chest protection and good body protection in the more severe side pole impact test. Unfortunately, the front seats and head restraints only provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the rear-end crash test.
When it came to the child protection, the Ghibli passed the test with flying colors. The Maserati was also child seat-friendly. However, it lost some points due to incorrect labeling.
Pedestrians should know that the Maserati Ghibli got maximum points for leg protection offered by the front apron. We can say the same about the front edge of the bonnet. As for the bonnet itself, this offered good or adequate protection for the head. Alas, the base of the windscreen and the A-pillars received poor results.
