Maserati Ghibli

The Maserati Ghibli is the most affordable Maserati that you can buy new. The car offers very good performance from a twin-turbocharged V6. It is at home being driven quickly, but it does so with some sacrifices.

The ride is harsh when you are just wanting to drive around town and the steering offers much less feel than you would like. These two combined with a traction control system that seems confused at time lets down the otherwise good driving experience.
