Maserati Quattroporte

The Quattroporte is available in rear-wheel-drive GT, Modena and Trofeo while the Modena Q4 is available in all-wheel drive and all models feature generous rear seat room. The GT is powered by a twin-turbo 3.0 liter 6-cylinder making 345 horsepower in the Modena form and 428 in the Modena and Modena Q4 trims. The Levante Trofeo comes with a turbocharged 3.8L V8 that generates 580 horsepower. Both engines are mated to a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.

Beyond a more spacious cabin and big power, the Quattroporte advances what a luxury sports sedan should be. Standard features include adaptive LED headlamps, 19-inch wheels, Skyhook Performance suspension, and blind spot alert. The interior is trimmed with rich leather upholstery, heated front seats, sunroof, a Harman Kardon 10-speaker audio system and a 10.1-inch touchscreen with navigation and Bluetooth. A rearview camera, adaptive cruise control and front and rear parking sensors are also standard.

The Trofeo offers a leather interior, ventilated front seats, a sport steering wheel, 21-inch forged aluminum wheels, and painted brake calipers.

The Quattroporte is as customizable as they come, and buyers can option their sedan with various wood and carbon fiber trims, 20 and 21-inch wheels, ventilated front seats, 4-zone automatic climate control, Bowers & Wilkins 1,280 watt surround sound system, sports steering wheel and sport seats, and upgraded leather upholstery.

Standard safety features include front and rear parking sensors, an active lane departure and blind spot system, forward collision mitigation, rear collision warning, pedestrian detection system and traffic sign information display.

Editors' First Take

The Levante Trofeo is one of the more exciting SUVs on sale right now, and for Maserati, it's been successful. So successful, in fact, that Maserati decided to take the Trofeo's secret sauce and apply it to the Ghibli and Quattroporte models, as well.

All three Trofeo models share a Ferrari-designed, cross-plane, 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8. This outstanding engine produces 580 horsepower, 538 pound-feet of torque and an exquisite yowl at full chat. The Levante Trofeo SUV uses all-wheel drive, but the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans only send the V8's power to their rear wheels.

My experience with the 2021 Trofeo range starts at Willow Springs International Raceway -- "the fastest road in the west," as it's known. The Levante feels more at home out on the Big Willow circuit, a super-fast road course with nine turns and a whole lot of elevation changes. Over the course of a half-dozen laps, the Levante impresses with its overall composure, with excellent body control and direct, accurate steering. This might be a nearly 4,800-pound SUV, but it's shockingly easy to place in corners.
