2020 Maserati Ghibli Interior and Cargo

2020 Ghibli Interior

The Ghibli's interior is a curious blend of premium materials and some flimsier switchgear. At first glance, everything looks great, but it's only once you begin operating the various switches that you'll find less weight to them when compared to a German luxury sedan. Although a five-seater, the Ghibli is better suited to four occupants. Seating is a highlight, as the upholstery materials used not only feels good to the touch but provides a nice mix of comfort and support. The driving position is generally decent and less compromised than in some other Italian cars, and while the infotainment system is reasonably logical, it lags behind the equivalent Mercedes-Benz and BMW systems. Although soft-close doors and 12-way power front seats are included, equipment levels are adequate rather than exceptional for the price.

Seating and Interior Space

Technically a five-seater, the Ghibli is better-suited to four occupants due to a narrow center rear seat that is much less comfortable than the rear outboard seats. Leather upholstery on all models adds to the comfort levels, and once seated, there is a reasonable amount of leg- and headroom for all passengers. Rear legroom only begins feeling a bit tight if adults taller than six-feet are occupying the front seats. The driving position is great, except for pedals that are slightly offset; a memory system for the driver's seat will make it easy to call up your preferred settings. Smallish rear side windows can make it feel a tad claustrophobic at the back, though, and the door apertures aren't the biggest so ingress and egress are slightly impeded. If you'll often be transporting passengers at the back, an E-Class is a much better prospect.

Interior Colors and Materials

All models have leather-upholstered seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Ghibli S additionally gets extended leather upholstery for an even more luxurious environment. Customers can choose between premium perforated leather, Pieno Fiore natural leather, and Zegna silk upholstery. High-gloss carbon-fiber or wood veneer trims represent a sportier or more opulent touch depending on which one you go for. Available open-pore wood or Piano Black are additional trim options. There are a variety of upholstery colors/color combinations to choose from, from black Nero leather to more exuberant shades like Cuoio, Sabbia, and Rosso (a deep red hue) with Nero contrast stitching. You can also choose the color of the dashboard to suit your tastes, creating an ambiance that's far removed from the typically stoic BMW 5 Series cabin.

2020 Ghibli Trunk and Cargo Space

At 17.7 cubic feet, the Ghibli's trunk offers a practical amount of space for a big grocery shop or a small family's belongings for a weekend away. That said, the trunk's design is rather shallow so it's not as good for taller items as some other rivals in this segment. The 60/40-split-folding rear seat usefully expands available cargo capacity.

Interior storage space is average, with good-sized door pockets in front and compartments in the center console for items like smartphones and wallets.

2020 Ghibli Infotainment and Features


Starting with the base model, you get 12-way power front comfort seats with two-position driver memory, heated front seats, a sunroof, soft-closing doors, power-adjustable and folding side mirrors, a heated steering wheel, keyless opening for the trunk lid, cruise control, a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, parking sensors front and rear, push-button start, keyless entry and go, dual-zone climate control, and blind-spot detection. Opting for one of the higher trims will add specs like front sports seats, adaptive LED headlights with high-beam assist, ventilated front seats, and a surround-view parking camera. Most modern driver aids like adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist require upgrading to one of the pricier trims. Considering the Ghibli's price, there's only an adequate amount of features.


The Ghibli's infotainment system, while not as advanced or slick as BMW's iDrive or Mercedes' MBUX system, is generally easy to use. Dubbed Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC+), the system comprises of a 8.4-inch touchscreen and a center console rotary knob. Standard features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, SiriusXM radio with a one-year free trial subscription, and SiriusXM traffic and travel link with a five-year trial subscription. Navigation and an internal hard-drive are part of the package as well. The basic sound system features eight speakers, but GranLusso and GranSport trims introduce a ten-speaker, 900-watt Harman Kardon premium audio system. A 15-speaker Bowers and Wilkins surround sound system is optionally available.
