Exquisite Italian Design: The 2016 Maserati Quattroporte

2016 Maserati Quattroporte

The 2016 rear-wheel drive Maserati Quattroporte is distinctly Italian, and the Quattroporte has an undeniable dramatic flair with its luxurious interior and exterior Nero color. This 4-door luxury sedan comfortably seats five in a refined, tasteful interior bedecked with satinwoods, fine leathers, and clean chrome metal accents. This offering has very low miles at just 4,432.

Quattroporte Engine and Performance

The engine is a powerful turbocharged direct injection V6 with 350 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, paired with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is rated at 16 city/23 highway. The Quattroporte has a top speed of 168 mph and can go from 0-60 in just 5.5 seconds.

Quattroporte Interior and Features

The interior features a moonroof/sunroof with tilt/slide power one-touch remote operation with anti-trapping feature. A premium 900-watt Harmon Kardon sound system with 11 speakers provides rich audio. Other features include a touch-screen display radio, in-dash CD, subwoofer, digital sound processing, and a speed sensitive volume control that adjusts automatically. There’s wireless data-linking via Bluetooth which allows you to use voice commands to stay hands-free, meaning you never have to take your eyes off the road. For driver convenience, the Quattroporte boasts a voice-operated electronic messaging system, a navigation system with touch-screen display, voice recognition, and real-time traffic information.

Front seating features comfortable 12-way power adjustable leather seats, and in the rear, a folding leather bench easily accommodates up to three. The folding rear seat affords extra storage space when you need it. The Quattroporte cabin features durable carpeting, promising resistance against wear, pressure, or damage. The satin wood trim on the dash, center console, and doors whispers luxury and style. The dash, shift knob, center console, doors, headliner, and steering wheel are tastefully trimmed with premium Italian leather. Clean chrome metal trim throughout the interior completes the cabin’s refined appearance. The dash includes digital odometer, external temperature display, rear-window defogger, and multi-function display.

Quattroporte Safety Features

The Quattroporte keeps safety first with an unprecedented number of protective features, including an in-dash rearview camera and monitor, front and rear parking sensors and blind spot safety alert, dual front active head restraints, child safety door locks, LATCH system child safety anchors, an emergency interior trunk release, energy absorbing steering column, and side impact door beams. The Quattroporte is equipped with an occupant-sensing passenger airbags, front and dual airbags, and front and rear side curtain airbags. Anti-theft measures include a powerful alarm, engine immobilizer, perimeter alarm, auto-locking power door locks with 2-stage door unlocking. 

On the exterior, you’ll find security approach lamps, LED daytime running lights, adaptive HID/Xenon automatic headlamps with high beam dimmer, dusk sensing, self-leveling, and high-pressure washers. The power-adjustable side mirrors are heated, auto-dimming, power folding, power adjustable, and include integrated turn signals. The tires are all-season performance tires on alloy wheels.

The Maserati Quattroporte luxury sedan originally debuted in 1963, and like fine wine, cheese, and Sophia Loren, it only seems to get better with age. For more information on this and other Maserati models, subscribe to our newsletter.
