Ghibli Diesel

Diesel power extends appeal of Maserati's executive class contender

The executive class is so hotly contested that entering it without a diesel is like turning up at a gunfight with a knife.

Fortunately Maserati’s suave and appealing four-door now has diesel firepower of its own to complement its standout looks and sensuous craftsmanship.


Maserati Ghibli Diesel

Even with the addition of a diesel powertrain to the range, a Maserati Ghibli will remain a rare sight. And that’s just how Ghibli owners like it. Not for them the ubiquitous three-pointed star, four interlocking rings or blue and white propeller badges. Instead they get an Italian thoroughbred with that evocative trident badge whose distinctive features include a snarling grille flanked by Bi-Xenon headlights, together with a sensual profile, tapering waistline and muscular rear haunches.

Inside, you’re greeted by a spacious, elegantly-arranged interior where the driver and front passenger are separated by a raised console, creating a cockpit-like ambience. The dash features a large, 8.4" touchscreen while the driver’s field of vision includes a three-spoke, leather-clad steering wheel and hooded, twin-binnacle instrument panel with a TFT display. The soft leather used for the seating can also extend to the dashboard and doors for a sense of cosseting luxury, with the option of a two-tone finish and contrast stitching. Whether you’re driving or relaxing in one of the passenger seats, the inside of a Ghibli is packed with the feel-good factor. 

GranLusso and GranSport trim options now available:

With the GranLusso, the style is focused on luxury. With the GranSport, it’s more about engaging driving dynamics.


Interior Tour


Maserati Ghibli Diesel

The Ghibli Diesel is the first diesel-powered car in Maserati’s 101-year history, and the company’s engineers have managed to combine efficiency and performance with a touch of Italian soul. The standard 0-62mph dash takes just 6.3 seconds, yet it also achieves 47.9mpg on the combined cycle, with emissions of 158 g/km. For business car drivers, those figures will be enough to put the Ghibli on the shortlist.

The 275HP 3-litre diesel V6 is mated to an eight-speed ZF transmission for smooth, seamless shifts, with a choice of five transmission modes from Auto Normal to Manual Sport. Features like Stop&Start help keep emissions and fuel consumption down while the Maserati Active Sound exhaust ensures aural entertainment at a touch of the Sport button. 

Other executive class diesels might shade the Ghibli by a fraction on mpg or emissions figures, yet none can match its combination of efficiency, distinction and charisma. For many owners, that will prove to be the clinching argument.

Limited edition Ghibli with a darker edge

There’s one quality every Ghibli has plenty of, and that’s style. Those sleek and muscular lines bring a hint of Maserati’s legendary sports racers and grand tourers to the executive class. But now the Ribelle Limited Edition ups the ante with a package of mean and moody styling tweaks to make it even more distinctive, at an appealing package price for the 275hp diesel model.


Let’s start with the exterior, shall we? That’s what you’ll notice along with half the population of your neighbourhood. To mis-quote Henry Ford, you can have any colour you like as long as it’s Nero Ribelle, a lustrous mica black paint finish. Take a close look at the 19" Proteo Rosso alloy wheels and you’ll see amid the predominant black finish that there are five single spokes with a red pinstripe, matching the red brake callipers you can see beyond them. Like the flash of a bright lining material on a Milanese bespoke suit, the subtle touch of red simply accentuates the moody black theme.

Inside, all Ribelle models feature a numbered limited-edition plate on the centre console, with Piano Black trim, Sport steering wheel, gearchange paddles and electric steering wheel adjustment. Then you’re faced with a choice, between the normal black leather sports seats with red stitching, or the premium leather option which features sports seats in two-tone black and red.

Choose the first option of the normal seats with contrast red stitching and the total package price adds £5000 to the price of a Ghibli Essence. Opt for the more opulent premium leather with two-tone sorts seats in black and red, and the price goes up a further £500 to £5,500. Either way you’re getting the prestige of a limited edition with multiple additional features for less than it would cost to specify the individual items.


The Ribelle limited edition package is available for the 275hp V6 diesel model, with 0-62mph acceleration in 6.3 seconds, 47.9mpg on the combined cycle and emissions of 158 g/km. It comes as standard with seven airbags, the Maserati Stability System and the 8.4" Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC+) unit, a state-of-the-art system that features both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® mirroring functions.
