2021 Maserati Quattroporte Prices, Reviews, and Pictures

Overview

The 2021 Maserati Quattroporte is a full-sized luxury car that has an Italian accent. The Quattroporte is a luxury sedan that targets non-conformist buyers. It stands out against a sterile segment, which includes the Audi A8, BMW 7-series and Mercedes-Benz S-class. The buyers can choose from either a twin turbocharged V-6 engine or a twinturbo V-8, with the latter offering 523 horsepower or 580 horsepower. Although the Maserati’s cabin is not as spacious than its key competitors, it is decorated with fine leathers and silks. Maserati has provided the Quattroporte many modern tech features including an extensive infotainment system and premium audio options as well as a few driver-assistance functions.

What’s new for 2021?

Maserati’s new Trofeo trim has been added to the Quattroporte line-up for 2021. The 580-hp twin turbo V-8 powers the Trofeo. It twists the rear wheels via an eight-speed auto transmission. The standard features include a limited-slip rear differential and Corsa driving mode, which unlocks the car’s true potential. The Quattroporte trofeo is a top-of the-line model with an exclusive grille, red-accented front vents, 21 inch wheels and carbon-fiber trim. New infotainment technology is also available in the Quattroporte, which has a 10.1 inch touchscreen instead of the 8.4 inch unit. The changes include a wireless charging pad, a gauge display with updated graphics, and a new gauge display.

Pricing and Which One To Buy

It is easy to upgrade to the GranLusso and GranSport trims. Maserati will equip the Quattroporte, for $7000 more than the base model. Each trim has its own set of desirable features. GranSport has a more aggressive look that suits the Quattroporte. It includes red-painted brake discs, 12-way power-adjustable sports seats, and 20-inch wheels. The GranLusso offers a more elegant appearance with a silk-leather interior by Ermenegildo Zgna. It also features heated front seats and ventilated rear ones, 20-inch wheels that are trim-specific, and glossy-black brake discs. Both models include adaptive cruise control.

Engine, Transmission, & Performance

There are two twin-turbo options available: a 424-hp V-6 engine and a V-8 of 3.8-liters that produces 523-hp and 580 hp respectively in the GTS. Standard features include an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. The Quattroporte S Q4 combines all-wheel drive with a V-6. Both engines can sing beautiful operatic songs when hustled, and neither will make buyers wish for more power. Our last test of a V-8 Quattroporte was back in 2014. It reached 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds. The new Trofeo model is expected to be even faster. Quattroporte rewards enthusiastic drivers with a firm suspension and agile handling. It also features a well-weighted steering system that is both direct and communicative. However, the Q4 all-wheel drive system should be considered only if there is significant snowfall annually. The retrograde calibration results in significant drag and binding, as well as an unluxury experience under nonhazardous conditions.

Fuel Economy and Real World MPG

The Quattroporte’s powertrains don’t have the best fuel efficiency, but the rear-wheel drive model with the twin turbo V-6 engine is the most efficient. The EPA fuel economy estimates for the Quattroporte are 17 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg together. The S Q4 all-wheel drive setup reduces both of these numbers by 1 mpg, while the V-8-powered GTS model estimates 2 mpg less across the board. We have not had the opportunity to test a Quattroporte model on our 200-mile highway fuel economy test so we cannot be certain that these EPA ratings will work in real life.

Interior, Comfort, & Cargo

The soft leather, Ermenegildo Zegna Silk, genuine carbon fiber, and beautifully finished metal accents feel great. However, in the 2021 Quattroporte’s cabin, they are mixed with cheap plastic bits and switchgear straight from the Chrysler parts catalogue (Maserati is owned Fiat Chrysler). The Italian sedan is priced at the same price as German luxury brand flagships. However, the Quattroporte’s interior feels more comfortable than you would find in full-sized models. Executive Rear Seats includes reclining seats in the back. However, this configuration seems to be a compromise between the Germans and the Italians. There is not enough space for reclining with average-sized adults in the front and back. The package includes heating and ventilation for both the rear seats and a set of climate controls. There is also a fixed console that creates a DMZ for elbow contact. It is possible to make the trunk larger, especially if you can afford Quattroporte at its starting price.

Infotainment & Connectivity

The Quattroporte’s infotainment system, which is new for 2021, is built on Google’s Android Automotive platform. It features a voice-activated virtual assistant and a projected touchscreen of 10.1 inches. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity are standard features. Buyers can upgrade the stereo system to either a Harman/Kardon 10-speaker setup or a Bowers & Wilkins 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkins setup.
