Summary


The Maserati Ghibli is a large executive saloon, which was launched in 2013 and substantially updated in late 2017. It is available with either a petrol V6 or petrol-electric hybrid engines.

The Ghibli’s twin-turbo petrol V6 engines are built for Maserati by Ferrari in Maranello. This arrangement will come to an end when the current model Ghibli finishes production, as Ferrari and Maserati are no longer part of the same overarching Fiat Group. A diesel engine was previously offered but has been dropped from the range.

The Maserati Ghibli has received fairly average reviews from the UK motoring media, although its worth pointing out that its cause is not helped by its rivals being some of the best cars on the market – the class-leading BMW 5 Series is possibly the best car that BMW makes, while the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6 are similary superior to most cars in their respective families. So the Ghibli is a good car in a field dominates by outstanding cars.

The Ghibli has been praised for its style and image, as well as its Ferrari-sourced petrol V6 engine. However, it has been criticised for not matching the level of comfort and quality that the best cars in its class display.

As of January 2024, the Maserati Ghibli holds a very poor New Car Expert Rating of E with a score of 43%.

Safety rating


Independent crash test and safety ratings from Euro NCAP

Overall score: 5 stars
Date tested: November 2013
Date expired: January 2020

Adult protection: 95%
Child protection: 79%
Vulnerable road users: 74%

No safety rating

The Maserati Ghibli was tested by Euro NCAP in 2013 and was awarded a five-star rating. This rating expired in January 2020 and is no longer valid. This is normal practice, as Euro NCAP reviews its ratings on most cars annually with most ratings expiring after about six or seven years.

However, if you are comparing a used Ghibli to vehicles of similar age, whose ratings will have probably also expired, its safety rating score is still useful.

Eco rating


Independent economy and emissions ratings from Green NCAP

No eco rating

As of January 2024, the Maserati Ghibli has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. If it happens, we’ll update this information.

The Maserati Ghibli is a rather expensive car to own and run, according to whole-life cost numbers provided exclusively to The Car Expert by our data partner, Clear Vehicle Data.

Fuel economy is very poor, with an average score of E ranking it in the bottom 20% of all cars in our database. CO2 emissions are also poor.

Insurance costs are likely to be high as the Ghibli is categorised in the highest group 50, while servicing and maintenance over the first five years is also expensive.
