2010 Maserati Quattroporte Reviews

Vehicle Overview
The Maserati Quattroporte is a full-size four-door luxury sedan. Designed by Italy's Pininfarina design firm, the rear-wheel-drive Quattroporte is available as a standard luxury model or as a new sport model, called Quattroporte S.

The Quattroporte competes with the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.


New for 2010
For 2010, the Quattroporte carries over with no major changes.

Exterior
Maserati styling cues include a long hood and trident badging. The front grille features prominently spaced bars, and LED daytime running lights run along the bottom of the headlamp clusters. The rear taillamps also have LED treatments. Last year's redesigned side mirrors, new bumpers and a restyled rear give the Quattroporte a closer resemblance to Maserati's two-door GranTurismo

  • Available 18-, 19- or 20-inch wheels
  • Auto-dimming heated, powered mirrors
  • Chrome-plated door handles, grille and exhaust
  • Directionally adaptive headlamps
  • Automatic windshield wipers
  • Sport GT S has larger air intakes and fog lights, titanium-finished headlights


Interior
Five people can luxuriate inside the Quattroporte, where handcrafted leather complements the premium wood trim. Interior features include:

  • Heated front seats standard, heated rear seats optional

Under the Hood
The Quattroporte features two different V-8s. The 4.2-liter continues in the base Quattroporte, while the Quattroporte S and Sport GT S get a 4.7-liter V-8 with varying outputs. All three models feature a six-speed sequential automatic transmission, which can be shifted using paddles on the steering column.

The Quattroporte S features Brembo brakes and a Skyhook sport suspension, which features various damping settings that allow for optimal balance in road-holding. The Quattroporte S can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a little over 5 seconds, while the Quattroporte Sport GT S takes around 5 seconds flat.

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
