The new Maserati Quattroporte is big news for the Italian marque. The car is kick-starting the firm's ambitions to increase sales ten-fold, so the stakes have never been higher. Steve Sutcliffe pitches it against our favourite luxury car, the Jaguar XJ to see which is best.

It’s expensive and maybe too

It’s expensive and maybe too sporty and unrefined if you want to spend most of the time in the back. Sad Some cabin details don’t match up to the price, either.Sad

enlightenment for English gentlemen

Dear gentlemen,

the Jaguar and Land Rover are from 2008 the best cars of India ;-D

I'm sorry, but these are facts. Rover is a good Chinese automotive, Bentley and Rolls-Royce are German-owned. So please, stop this "the British car is the best" attitude! It is ridiculous...

I hope I did not offend anyone either,

Dear idiot,

This is like claiming Budweiser isn't American because it's owned by a Belgian multinational, or that Holiday Inn is a British hotel chain because it's owned by a UK company.

Jaguar did not become American under Ford ownership and it didn't become Indian under Tata ownership. It won't become Spanish if the Spanish buy it, or Italian if the Italians buy it.

India is home to one third of the world's poor so for the time being they'll need to continue trading on other people's brand values rather than their own.

Go troll some place else.

Arrrrggggghhhh Its hideous and just wrong.

Why have Maserati ruined the looks of the car. It looks like an Audi from the back the front lights are way to small for the size of the car and the proportions are all wrong. And what the hell are you thinking in the write up when you say "if you ignor the ride the car is well sorted"!!!!! Im sorry its a limo if the ride is rubbish the car is not well sorted that should be its main priority. Dont moan about how the ride quality on new cars is terrible and then just brush aside how rubbish it is on what should be the most comfortable class of car there is.
