2015 Maserati Quattroporte
Large luxurious saloons are just the type of cars every successful executive or businessman has to have some time in his life. Some play it safe and buy a Mercedes S-class, some like to be inconspicuous and buy an Audi A8 whereas some want something with a sporty side to it and go for the Porsche Panamera Turbo, the Jaguar XJ or the BMW 7 series. However, there is one more car for the last group of buyers. They can opt for the beautifully styled, gnarly 2015 Maserati Quattroporte, which is, basically, one of the sportiest rides anyone could want in this segment. The car was revealed in 2013 and it brought 8 inches more in length in comparison with the previous version, but, thanks to the use of aluminum and other lightweight stuff, it lost more than 200 lbs which is astonishing. With all of that weight lost, Maserati wanted to make the car more nimble and more engaging than ever before. They went the right way – to Ferrari, with whom they designed, constructed and tested new three liter V6 and 3.8 liter V8 engines – both turbocharged. In the US, these are the available engines – one develops slightly more than 400 HP, while the other shows more than 520 HP on the Dyno run. Is it enough for the new gen car!? Oh, yes it is. Even after a small redesign for the 2015 model year, the 2015 Maserati Quattroporte retained the same engines as before.
On the other hand, much has been changed in the department of equipment. Now, even the trim package S Q4 has a beautiful infotainment system with an 8.4 inch screen as the centerpiece. Also, additional personalization equipment has been provided, so the buyers can opt for almost any color of the stitching, the 2015 Maserati Quattroporte can be equipped with red leather upholstery and even the standard Sirius XM infotainment system comes with three month prepaid subscription so the occupants can access the Internet or any other service that Sirius XM offers.
Moving up a notch to GTS model, or an AWD with the V8 under the bonnet, the 2015 Maserati Quattroporte is equipped with luxurious equipment like the rear heated seats, bigger brakes and even paddle shift gearbox. It is important to mention that every 2015 Maserati Quattroporte is equipped with an eight speed transmission which promises to save on fuel and to provide seamless gear shifts.
All in all, the sportiest 2015 Maserati Quattroporte is the type of a vehicle that can stir up even the indifferent ones. The sound of its engine and the sporty suspension system based on a rear multilink and front double wishbone setup promises exciting and engaging driving characteristics. What’s more, the servo remained hydraulically assisted which means that the driver can retain full control and enjoy engaging those driving characteristic which are often lost with the new and modern electrically assisted power steering devices.
