Being an Avid Maserati fan for quite some time now, finally getting to really test drive one has been an absolutely amazing experience for me. I decided to rent a Maserati Ghibli for a week because I have been itching to buy one, and I did not want to spring on buying one before I drove the actual vehicle for more than just a few blocks with a salesperson in the vehicle with me. Let me tell you my verdict: I WILL be buying! the drive was so smooth! Handling is up there but not perfect, but overall my love of the product exceeds everything else.
Currently, I have a 2017 BMW 328 i sedan. I have been in love with this car since I got it in the middle of 2016, but it still just does not compare to the Maserati (I think this is due to me being Biased lol?) Here is a stock picture I found:
Gorgeous car and I truly love it! But there is just something I love about the Maserati Poseidon logo!
Maserati Handling v.s. BMW: Even though I an thoroughly in love with the Maserati, I felt the handling was lacking. My BMW handling was far superior, and was able to grip a fast turn much better than the Maserati. I could feel some slight lag going around a fast turn in the Maserati, that I do not feel in my beamer.
Power: In the power aspect the clear winner for me was the Maserati. Now, this is clear because the beamer is only pushing a 4 cylinder engine with an inline turbo, while the Maserati is pushing an 8 cylinder turbo. The difference is quite a bit of pick up and go speed for when you are ready to go fast!
Interior: Although my BMW interior is absolutely beautiful, the fine elegance of and craftsmanship of the Maserati is not something to play around with.
