The 2020 Maserati Quattroporte is a five-passenger luxury sedan offered in three main tier levels: GranSport, S, and GranLusso. The Maserati 2020 Quattroporte competes with dominant luxury sedans such as the Audi A8, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and BMW 7 Series, but brings its own specific flavor which is otherwise a fairly calm vehicle. The passenger compartment is cramped, but the rear seat can be equipped with seats, its own dedicated climate control system, and foldable seat-mounted tables.
The Quattroporte receives several new standard features for 2020, such as a heated steering wheel, rear sun visor, and soft doors. A suite of driver support features also joins the list of standard features. Maserati will offer two new occurrence packages, the first of which is the sinister Edizione Ribelle package, of which only 25 will be produced. The GT Sport package is available on the S and GranLusso models and adds aggressive exterior styles borrowed from the GranSport model.
2020 Maserati Quattroporte Interior
Inside is the 2020 Quattroporte cabin, blended with cheaper plastic bits and switches directly from the Chrysler parts catalog. This Italian sedan is priced against the flagships of German major luxury brands, but the interior of the Quattroporte is narrower than you would find in the full-dress; it’s closer to the mid-size offerings like the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Executive rear seat package includes armchairs at the rear, but the setup looks like a move intended only for parity with the Germans. With average size adults front and back, there is not enough room to sit.
However, the package includes heating and ventilation for the rear seats, as well as another set of climate controls and a fixed center console that creates a DMZ for contact with the elbow. The trunk can also be more spacious considering that those who can afford the starting price of the Quattroporte are unlikely to pack light.
2020 Maserati Quattroporte Engine
There are two twin-turbocharged engines available – a 424 hp V4, a 3.0-liter, or a 523 hp V-8. An eight-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive is standard; the Quattroporte S Q4 marries the V-6 with a four-wheel drive. Both engines sing breathtaking operational songs when they’re loud, and neither of them will have buyers who want more power. The Quattroporte also rewards enthusiastic drivers with sturdy suspension, agile handling, and well-weighted steering that is direct and communicative. However, the Q4 all-wheel-drive system should be on your radar only if there is significant annual snowfall. The retrograde calibration provides considerable drag and bonding, as well as a decidedly non-fluid experience in non-hazardous conditions.
The available Quattroporte 2020 drivers are particularly fuel-efficient, but the rear-wheel-drive model with the twin-turbo V-6 is the most economical choice. The EPA fuel economy estimates are 17 mpg city, highway 24 mpg and 19 mpg together. Setting the S Q4 all-wheel-drive reduces each of these numbers by 1 mpg, while the V-8 powered GTS model is 2 mpg lower. We haven’t had a chance to make a Quattroporte model through our 200-mile fuel-economy test, so we can’t be sure this EPA rating will stay in the real world.
2020 Maserati Quattroporte Safety
The standard safety features include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane assistance, and customizable cruise control. Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has released crash test data for the 2020 Quattroporte. 2020 Maserati Quattroporte does offer quite a few management assistance features, however, and many of them are standard.
