Since long, car enthusiasts have got accustomed to attributing the Trident emblem with some of the most impeccably designed vehicles crafted with the finest materials. The 2020 Maserati Ghibli S is no exception. The midsize luxury sedan is widely known for its gorgeous looks and classy interiors and boasts of some good sporty performance as well.

The 2020 Ghibli S in its class competes with the likes of Lexus LS 500, BMW 5 series, Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio, and Jaguar XF. While on one hand, the Ghibli shows some brilliance in its design and crafts, Maserati has not brought about any significant changes in the Sedan for quite some time. Resultantly, the vehicle loses ground on modernity with some of its rivals. But that can be somewhat overlooked by the Ghibli’s powerful engines, sporty performance, and engaging driving experience.

How Comfortable is the Maserati Ghibli S?

The 2020 Ghibli S does not get any interior design upgrade. Although the sedan offers some commendable amount of luxury and craftsmanship inside the cabin, the dated design can be a little let-down. Some of the materials used inside do not portray the class expected from a $70,000+ luxury vehicle. But again, the premium leather or available silk trim in the cabin are praiseworthy.

2020 Maserati Ghibli S Sedan Front Seats

The seats in the Ghibli S surely comfortable and luxurious. The 12-way power-adjustable front seats provide a good amount of bolstering and support. The driver’s seat even comes with a 2-position memory feature. The front seats are heated and provide enough passenger space all around. As good as the front seats are, the rear row is not much passenger-friendly. The space is little, and seating for longer periods can be really uncomfortable.

Comparing with the rivals, the 2020 Maserati Ghibli S Sedan somewhere lags with its dated materials. At a similar price tag, the BMW and Lexus offer an impressive passenger comfort with a good amount of front and rear leg space. The Ghibli’s rear seats are too constrained and narrow for an easy ride.

How good is the Maserati Ghibli S’s Infotainment?

The 2020 Ghibli S gets the Maserati Infotainment system comes with an 8.4-inch touch display and Maserati Touch Control unit. The infotainment system does a good job indeed and is quite easy to control.

The infotainment also brings in both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, as well as Bluetooth Audio Streaming.

When seen in comparison with the BMW 5 series or Lexus LS, the Ghibli has a pretty bigger trunk. But while cars like the Jaguar XF beats it marginally, the Audi A7 and some others offer even bigger boot spaces.

What are the storage spaces inside?

Talking about the interior storage options, the Ghibli gets a series of small-item storage places. The front armrest gets two mechanical openings, an illuminated storage compartment, and two cup holders. The front tunnel gets two cup holders with a cigarette lighter. The rear armrest also gets covered cup holders and illuminated storage compartments. Then there are the driver glove box, passenger glove box, front, and rear door map pockets, and seat-back net pockets. All combined, the 2020 Ghibli offers a decent amount of cargo capacity for regular travels.

So, is the interior of the 2020 Maserati Ghibli S Sedan luxurious enough?

The 2020 Maserati Ghibli S Sedan basic is one of the most attractive luxury vehicles in the segment. The tinge of Italian flair shows its mark with the elegant design outside, while the minimalistic set up in the cabin portrays sophistication. However, the Ghibli stops short from becoming one of the most luxurious sedans only for the prime reason that Maserati has failed to bring in any real change in the interior. The traditional set-up in the cabin gets some cheap materials, lowering the dignity of the vehicle. Moreover, the array of features and techs offered in the Ghibli struggles to match those in more modern cars like the BMW or Jaguar. Finally, although Maserati has decreased the price tag for the 2020 Ghibli, it is still quite expensive a sedan, at least when measured with respect to the luxury and opulence it offers.
