Another feather is being put in Maserati’s cap as the new Ghibli continues to strive. The car is proving to be one of the finest sports/luxury sedans, passing tests and evaluations one after another with flying colors. Ghibli’s latest accomplishment is achieving IIHS’ coveted Top Safety Pick award.
The Ghibli was designed and built as a gap filler for Maserati in their quest to sell 50,000 cars a year. So naturally we thought it’s going to be one of those cars put together with bits found in the part bin outside someone else’s factory. Not so. The car turned out to be an even better prospect than its famous big brother, the Quattroporte.
It has a nice design, it has a great interior with fantastic materials, it’s built beautifully, and it has a lineup of good engines. And now, it turns out, it is also very safe. The Ghibli recorded the highest-possible rating of “good” in all of IIHS crash tests, including side impact with a large SUV or pickup truck, front moderate overlap impact, roof-crush consistent with a rollover, and a rear collision capable of inducing whiplash.
What’s more, the car comes with four year/ 50,000 mile warranty, road-side assistance, and loaner car service. Never before a Maserati offered such peace of mind to its buyers.
Maserati Ghibli starts from $65,600 in America.
