conclusion

Overall, great car. I had to take points off on the drive because of the steering wheel, its the main connection between the driver and the car, and its unfortunate that despite staying away from electric steering, Maserati weren't able to provide race car feel. While fuel economy isn't great (6kmpl in the city, 10kmpl on highways), it is still practical, there's space for the family and the boot isn't lacking in space, but given that you aren't going to be pushing the machine to the edge every time, and most likely will be doing most of your time in the city, slightly softer suspension and greater ground clearance would have been good. However, as someone who loves to drive, I love this car. If you are looking for the raw blissful freedom that was once what driving was about, well, thats what you get from the Maserati Ghibli S Q4, power, attitude and freedom.
