Like the exterior, the Quattroporte's cabin is attractively styled and is available in a range of flamboyant trims and shades of leather. The quality is a mixed bag, though, with premium leather and genuine wood trim undone by areas of hard plastic that are simply out of place in a car of this price. Some switchgear has clearly been poached from the Fiat/Chrysler parts bin. There will be few complaints about space, however, as both front and rear passengers will appreciate the amount of legroom on offer. There's also a user-friendly infotainment system, heated front seats with power adjustment, while additional driver aids like the Active Driving Assist suite and adaptive cruise control are thankfully included in the base price too. Some of the options include soft-close doors and a power rear sunblind - both part of packages.
Its long body has been put to good use here, with the Quattroporte's interior providing spacious room for five. The headroom and legroom are excellent for all but the middle rear-seat passenger, who will have to contend with a rather large hump on the floor. The driver's seat has plenty of adjustment in it to help find a suitable driving position. However, the high-set dashboard does create a feeling of needing to peer over it, especially for shorter drivers, and, as a result, the steering wheel doesn't drop down low enough for everyone's taste. There are no issues with visibility, and the front view is made clearer thanks to slim A-pillars. Likewise, ingress and egress are simple. Two individual rear seats can be ordered via the Executive Package and includes the model-specific leather upgrade, four-zone climate control, and a rear sunblind - but reduces seating capacity to four.

Both the Quattroporte GT and Modena feature extended leather upholstery in a choice of nine colors while the brand's Luxury Zegna silk and leather upholstery for a truly luxurious atmosphere in the cabin can be optioned in three two-tone color schemes, but requiring the selection of additional packages. The Modena gets extended leather in a choice of ten hues and offers the Zegna Pellessuta leather upgrade in three hues. Interior colors range from the more traditional Nero, Cuoio, and Sabbia, to leather with contrast stitching in shades like Rosso, or dark Nero with distinctive Rosso stitching. There are three available interior trim finishes on the GT: piano-black or Rovere wood in a high-gloss finish or open-pore Radica wood. On the Modena, the Rovere option is replaced by carbon fiber. An Alcantara headliner and pillars can also be ordered at extra cost in a choice of three shades. The Executive Package compels the upgraded leather option and adds more features - and replaces the rear bench with two sumptuous trimmed separate seats with a center console. Overall, there's plenty of choice on offer to create an interior that suits your taste.
Pop open the trunk lid and you'll find 18.7 cubic feet of cargo space back there. This is one of the more spacious trunks you'll find in a regular sedan and is right up there with the BMW 7 Series. Two large suitcases will fit with room to spare, and you can increase overall cargo capacity by folding down the 60/40-split rear seats.
Along with the regular glovebox (which is also electronically lockable), there are door pockets (although they're on the small side), a center storage compartment with twin cupholders, and more storage for the rear passengers within the fold-down central armrest for stashing smaller items.

A Mercedes S-Class may ultimately offer more gadgetry, but the Quattroporte gets most of the luxuries you'd expect in a premium large sedan. On the base model, features encompass 12-way power front seats with driver memory settings, a power sunroof, ambient night lighting, extended keyless entry (including the rear doors), dual-zone automatic climate control, and five driving modes: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport, and Increased Control & Efficiency. For added convenience, there is a power trunk lid - a hands-free setup with a kick sensor is optional. There's plenty of safety gear with standard front/rear parking sensors, blind-spot detection, adaptive cruise control, and a surround-view camera. Both trims offer feature upgrades like heated rear seats, soft-close doors, and power rear side sunblinds as part of packages and the Modena offers ventilated front seats as well.
The Maserati Intelligent Assistant (MIA) infotainment system now runs the Android Automotive operating system and while it isn't quite as glitzy as the latest Mercedes and BMW systems, it's easy enough to figure out and operate. The system makes use of a newly updated 10.1-inch HD touchscreen display, including the new voice-activated virtual assistant. It integrates features like navigation, Bluetooth, USB and auxiliary inputs, SiriusXM satellite radio with a one-year trial subscription, plus both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Incorporated in MIA is Maserati Connect, enabling the driver to stay in contact with their vehicle via the Maserati Connect smartphone app or via virtual assistants such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assist. Maserati Connect can keep the driver updated on vehicle health and can assist in emergencies. The seven-inch multi-function display within the instrument cluster provides more driver information. The sound system is a ten-speaker, 900-watt Harman Kardon premium unit that offers rich sound reproduction. For an added cost, a 1,280-watt Bowers and Wilkins surround-sound system is available.
