Buyer’s guide to the Maserati Quattroporte

We take a look at a luxurious Italian saloon that could be your next purchase…

Saloon cars aren’t going anywhere anytime soon — especially at the top-end of the premium car market.

Buyers in this segment look for an elegant design, strong levels of equipment and a desirable overall package — and one car ticking those boxes is the Maserati Quattroporte. Looking to make one your next purchase? Here’s what you should know…

What engines are available?

See Available Quattroporte deals


Three engines are offered for the Maserati Quattroporte — all 3.0-litres in capacity, all V6 and all sending power to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Two petrol and a diesel make up the line-up.

Starting the petrol range is the 345bhp, 500Nm of torque option. This sends the car from 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds with a 168mph top speed possible. Maserati says it can return 25.2mpg with CO2 emissions weighing in at 259-260g/km.

Next up is the ‘S’ variant — producing 424bhp and 580Nm of torque. The result is a 0-60mph time of 4.8 seconds with a 179mph top speed possible. It’s claimed to return 29.4mpg while emitting 223g/km in CO2.

The sole diesel outputs 271bhp and 600Nm of torque, sending the car from 0-60mph in 6.2 seconds and on to a 157mph top speed. It’s said to achieve 38.7-37.6mpg on the combined cycle, with 191-198g/km of CO2 emitted.
