Performance

Since performance is such an important part of any luxury grand touring experience, why would you ever settle for anything but the best? The Maserati Quattroporte Modena S Q4 comes standard with a 3.0L Twin-Turbo V6 engine which produces an impressive 424 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque. Both the Porsche Panamera 4S and Mercedes-Benz S500 4MATIC offer similar horsepower with less torque. The BMW 750i xDrive uses a larger twin-turbo V8 engine that produces more power and torque, but weighs nearly a quarter ton more than the Maserati Quattroporte S Q4. Additionally, the Quattroporte has the lowest curb weight among all vehicles in this comparison. Light weight is a key factor in delivering a thrilling ride and Maserati engineers went to great lengths in order to achieve the perfect handling balance.

Precision & Refinement

Providing exceptionally clear lighting at the front of the Quattroporte is a pair of LED headlamps including an Adaptive Lighting System. Each of the three competitors offer LED headlamps without an adaptive lighting function. Each of these premium models features a premium audio system to match, but the standard audio system in the Maserati Quattroporte is the most powerful in this comparison by a long shot. With an impressive output of 900 watts, you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite songs through the powerful ten-speaker premium audio system that includes a dedicated subwoofer for improved bass response.

Standard speed sensitive power steering is great for effortless highway cruising and precision maneuvers around town. It’s an expensive added-cost option on the Porsche. Like the rest of the car, the system used by the Maserati Quattroporte is carefully tuned to balanced comfort, refinement, and performance for engaged drivers.

Winner: Maserati Quattroporte

After comparing these four vehicles side-by-side, the Maserati Quattroporte emerges as the clear winner. Its blistering performance, sophisticated engineering, and seductive style have help establish the Quattroporte as a leader in the full-size luxury sports sedan segment.
