So we got a 2014 Maserati Ghibli

2014 Maserati Ghibli in the UAE
It’s cool to drive a car before it’s properly hit the streets. It becomes easier to gauge public reaction to a new model, and the Maserati Ghibli truly qualifies as a new new model.

Serving as the uber-upscale brand’s entry-level offering, the midsize Ghibli is probably the most aggressive-looking sedan you can buy in its category. The design cools off as you go towards the back, but all in all, it is a stylish sports sedan that makes its intentions known without resorting to cheese.

The interior is also very well done. We were expecting a clone of the Quattroporte’s insides, but the Ghibli instead gets a completely unique style of its own, if a little less generous on the use of leather in the lower reaches of the cabin.

It’s very practical as well. Forgoing any attempts at doing the “four-door coupe” thing that’s popular with other brands, there is enough space for four, or five, good-sized adults as well as a huge boot.

Still, it’s the driving experience that makes the Ghibli a proper Maserati. It is amazing to see that the non-S base model still offers the street-driving feel of a purpose-built sports sedan, akin to an “M” or an “AMG” car. More in the full review.

What do you think?



  1. Photography experiment in the last photo, well tried.

  2. maybe it is due to the fact that the Asian designers made huge progress, but this car looks very ordinary – nothing that stands out.

    cool last pic, Mash!

  3. First instant look on first pic give me the impression of Mazda 6 2014 !!

  4. I guess if you can’t afford a Maserati you can illude yourself by saying your Mazda looks like a maserati, but I I’ve seen both up close, no comparison at all, and once you start one up and take it for a drive it will be very difficult to go back and drive a SHITTY Japanese or an UGLY German.
