The 2013 Maserati Quattroporte proves that there is no need to sacrifice performance if you need more than two doors.

The Maserati Quattroporte debuted for the 2005 model year with a sequential manual transmission dubbed "DuoSelect." A traditional automatic replaced DuoSelect in 2008, while a major face-lift marked the 2009 model year. All Quattroporte models offer four doors, V8 power and seating for five.

Today's Quattroporte offers the same 4.7-liter V8 as its 2-door GranTurismo stablemate. Like the GranTurismo, different Quattroporte versions offer different power ratings. Base-level S models offer 425 horsepower, while the top-level Sport GT-S bumps that figure to 433 hp. Both models use a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Sport GT-S adds lowered suspension and an Alcantara interior.

The 2013 Maserati Quattroporte starts around $128,000 for a base-level S sedan. That puts it in competition with the Porsche Panamera Turbo and the Mercedes S63 AMG. Opting for the Quattroporte Sport GT-S boosts the base price to around $136,000. Fuel economy is 12 miles per gallon in the city and around 19 mpg on the highway, while 0-to-60 comes in around five seconds.


Pros: Reasonable starting price for the panache of Maserati; engine note is distinctly exotic, unlike rivals; not as common as S-Class, or even Panamera

Cons: Tired design on the verge of replacement; depreciation will be strong, as with all Maserati models; interior isn't quite as upscale as 7 Series, S-Class cabins

What's new: The 2013 Maserati Quattroporte is largely unchanged aside from standard front-parking sensors. A redesigned Quattroporte is due out for the 2014 model year.
