Expert Review

Overall Rating


The Quattroporte GTS sources power from a V8 capable of churning 523 hp and 524 lb.-ft. torque. Complementing that V8 is an elegantly styled cabin very much in line with Maserati’s lineage of luxury. Though, cheap plastics might make you doubt it as will its V8, which isn’t that outstanding either.

So for the year 2020, the Maserati Quattroporte GTS is available in two variants, which come equally loaded with features too, except for a few trim-specific features. Nonetheless, for a starting price of $124,990 for both variants, the Maserati Quattroporte looks to be the kind of overall well-rounded packages that the BMW M760i and Audi S8 L are.

2020 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Features

9.0/10

The GTS variant of Maserati’s Quattroporte lineup is further segregated into two trims. They are known as GranLusso and GranSport. Both these variants cost the same and offer more or less a similar package. The only difference lies in how the two Quattroporte GTS are styled.

As the name suggests, the GranSport is the more sportier of the two. It gets more heavily bolstered seats, and upfront, the air vents on the bumper are bigger and more defined. Other than that both Quattroporte GTS models are powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 and come equipped with rear-wheel drive unit only as standard.

The list of standard features on both these Maseratis is also quite extensive. Both variants get power-adjustable heated seats and sunroof to enhance indulgence. The Quattroporte GTS GranLusso, however, gets seats with ventilated function too, while the GranSport does not.

Which trim to buy?

Though both variants of the Maserati Quattroporte GTS come heavily equipped with features, the GranLusso offers a few additional features while costing the same. So this Quattroporte GTS makes most sense as mechanically both cars exactly alike.

2020 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Engine and Performance

8.0/10

Both variants of the Maserati Quattroporte GTS, GranLusso and GranSport, source power from a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged, Ferrari-sourced V8 pushing out 523 hp and 524 lb.-ft. torque. All that power and torque from the V8 is channeled only to the rear wheels of this sedan.

The seamless transition of power from the burly V8 to the hind quarters of this Maserati is brought about by a quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission from ZF.

While most other sedans in this segment offer a V8, the BMW M760i out-cylinders them all with a V12. Also, at 600 hp it is the most powerful of all luxury sedans in this lineup.

How fast is the Maserati Quattroporte GTS?

The Maserati Quattroporte GTS benefits greatly from its Ferrari V8. That engine makes immense power to comfortably push this sedan ahead without any hassles. Even the ZF eight-speed is totally in-tune with the V8 and shifts precisely to ensure that the Quattroporte GTS always stays in the meat of the powerband.

Despite being the lightest sedan in this segment, the Maserati Quattroporte GTS is the slowest of the lot. The Porsche Panamera Turbo picks up speed quicker than all the rest of the sedans to leave them feeding on its dust. Only the V12 powered BMW M760i is able to eventually catch up to the Porsche.

What about the braking performance of the Maserati Quattroporte GTS?

Braking on the Maserati Quattroporte GTS is taken care by 6-piston and 4-piston aluminum monobloc fixed calipers with dual-cast ventilated drilled discs at the front and rear respectively. They respond with great precision to bring this Maserati to a halt.

Even the pedal is fairly light to operate and input from it is met with proportional feedback from the brakes. At the same time the use of aluminum ensures that the rotors don’t heat up extensively, so drivers would not have to worry about fading response.

The Maserati Quattroporte GTS is the lightest car in this segment. Consequently, it is also the quickest to come to a halt. Other sedans in this segment, however, aren’t too far behind it when it comes to stopping on a dime.

What about its driving dynamics?

The Maserati Quattroporte GTS rewards its driver with precise steering, adaptive suspension and immense agility. Despite having a relatively longer footprint, this Maserati is extremely responsive courtesy its naturally stiff chassis and extensive use of aluminum, which keeps its weight in check.

2020 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Rear View

The Quattroporte GTS also features several driving modes which alter response from engine, throttle, transmission, steering and suspension accordingly. Switching to sport mode on the track engages the Maserati Stability Program and its limited slip-differential, enabling the Quattroporte GTS to swirl in and out of corners like a proper sports sedan.

Its standard Skyhook performance suspension does a great job of keeping this Maserati extremely composed to keep body lean in check. That standard suspension, however, is set on the stiffer side but the electronic damping does well to absorb most harshness from the surface underneath.

2020 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Fuel Economy

8.0/10

People looking to own a Maserati Quattroporte that offers better efficiency should definitely opt for the V6 powered models of the same as the GTS is not as efficient. This is only natural because its V8 makes up for remarkable performance and incredible highway passability.

That comes at a cost in the form of reduced efficiency. The sonorous V8 does receive some aid from the Quattroporte GTS’s rear-wheel drive unit, which enables it to be as economical as possible.

While most sedans in this stand-off source power from a V8, the Maserati Quattroporte GTS’s MPG ratings are only slightly above average. The size of its fuel tank is also relatively small which further reduces practicality.

It’s the Audi S8L and the BMW M760i, though, that offer the least efficiency, and a lot of it results from the fact that they are the heaviest of the lot. The Bimmer, however, is still pretty efficient keeping in mind the fact that besides being a heavyweight, it gets an equally big V12.

8.0/10

The Maserati Quattroporte GTS’s cabin speaks of its Italian-ness. It is lined with soft leather, Ermenegildo Zegna silk, real carbon fiber, authentic wood and well-fitted metal accents that are simply fantastic to look and feel. As you look closely, however, you will notice that mingled with those high-quality materials are cheap plastic bits that really don’t do justice to this Maserati’s price tag or its homage.

2020 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Front Seats

Even its 8.4-inch touchscreen is straight out of Chrysler brochure. Thankfully, the seats are nice and wide and come equipped with heating function. While the front seats on the GranSport variant of this Maserati are even more heavily bolstered for better support, the GranLusso also gets ventilated seats, which the former misses out on.

It’s hard to beat the level of luxury and elegance that the Italians offer, however, both the Germans manage to do that quite comfortably. The BMW M760i offers a unique blend of indulgence with a spacious cabin and massive V12.

Does it come loaded with tech inside?

The 8.4-inch touchscreen of the 2020 Maserati Quattroporte GTS is easy to use and plenty responsive. It features several user-friendly tech like:

  • Radio
  • Bluetooth
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto
  • Navigation
  • HomeLink

What about utility?

The longer wheelbase and overall length of the Maserati Quattroporte GTS make this sedan plenty practical. Besides a spacious cabin, it also manages to free up plenty of space on the inside to maximize utility with an equally accommodating trunk.

9.0/10

The Maserati Quattroporte GTS’s exterior exudes sportiness and elegance. Both its variants, GranLusso and GranSport, are almost identical to look at. Only the GranSport gets unique front and rear fascias.

Upfront, the grille features the imposing Maserati Trident flanked by sleek LED headlights that run deep into the fenders. The sculpted hood kinks down towards the front to give this Maserati its lower stance.

 Its sides are clean with minimal creases. The fenders over the real wheels, however, bulge outwards giving the Quattroporte GTS a muscular appearance. Together with the sloping roofline and LED taillamps, the trapezoidal dual-pipe exhaust finished in chrome-plated stainless steel put the entire car together.

8.9/10

Maserati Quattroporte GTS vs. Audi S8 L

Besides being bigger and heavier than the Maserati Quattroporte GTS, the Audi S8 L is also more expensive than the same. For that price, however, the Audi S8 L offers better performance, higher efficiency and a lot more accommodating cabin. The only advantage that the Quattroporte enjoys over the S8 L is its bigger boot and exclusivity.

2020 Audi S8 L Sedan

Maserati Quattroporte GTS vs. BMW M760i

If the Quattroporte thinks its V8 is something to boast about, the BMW M760i gets a V12. Consequently, it is also a lot more performance-oriented than the Maserati. Also, despite being a lot heavier than the Quattroporte GTS, in terms of size and power, the M760i offers similar levels of usability. It has a more spacious cabin, a similarly sized boot and a lot more performance. Except for its less expensive price tag and greater presence, the Quattroporte does nothing to match up to this Bimmer.

2020 Maserati Quattroporte GTS Sedan Final Verdict

8.0/10

The Maserati Quattroporte GTS offers punchy performance, a spacious cabin and guaranteed exclusivity. However, none of those things are so remarkable as to make this Maserati stand out, especially keeping in mind its price. The cabin though elegant, uses cheap plastic. Its engine though powerful, is no exception. At the same time it isn’t all that fuel efficient either. Clearly, this Maserati would be a much better package if it cost about half as much as it does.
