Editor's Overview

The 2018 Maserati Ghibli is the gateway into the Italian exotic brand. Starting at $75,000, however, there's little that's "entry level" about it. The Ghibli will surely bring envy with its Ferrari-built V6 and brand provenance, but in reality, you can get a lot more vehicle for less with a mainstream-luxury sedan like a BMW 5 Series.
