2014 Maserati Ghibli Interior
The interior of the 2014 Maserati Ghibli is a study in contrasts. For one, you can order luxury appointments such as a dash of tone leather, door armrests and a leather suedelike ceiling while cutting wooden cabin high gloss wood open pore or carbon fiber . Furthermore, many of the knobs, buttons and touch interfaces seem to come from Chrysler and shelves are more utilitarian than I’d like at this price (father automaker Fiat owns both Chrysler and Maserati). The 8.4-inch touch screen in particular draws a more or less direct interfaces to information and entertainment in the Dodge Charger and Jeep Grand Cherokee line. On the positive side, this interface is very simple to use and much less complicated than infotainment systems more sophisticated German sedans the brand.
Still, there is no doubt the 2014 Maserati Ghibli falls short of those German rivals precision built on the overall quality of the cabin. Surprisingly, Ghibli front seats offer exceptional comfort, even with its minimum number of settings. Thick side padding and firm seat cushions are ideal for a weekend trip on a back road or drive from one state to another time.
Unlike some rivals sedans coupe style, the 2014 Maserati Ghibli does not penalize passengers in the rear seats, with a sloping roof line that consumes headroom. There is much behind head and legroom, even for taller passengers, but foot space under the front seats is tight. At 17.7 cubic feet, the trunk offers a generous space for the class, while the rear seat folds in a fraction of 60/40 for versatility.

The 8-speed automatic is the only transmission offered for both models. Shift paddles mounted on the steering column are optional for both models. According to EPA estimates, the rear wheel Ghibli achieves 19 mpg in combined driving (15 mpg city/25 mpg highway). The Q4 Ghibli S is only slightly lower at 18 mpg combined (also 15/25).
