For enhanced safety, the front and rear seat shoulder belts of the Maserati Quattroporte have pretensioners to tighten the seatbelts and eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision and force limiters to limit the pressure the belts will exert on the passengers. The Kia K900 doesn’t offer pretensioners for the rear seat belts.

To help make backing safer, the Quattroporte’s cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The K900 doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the Quattroporte and the K900 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, blind spot warning systems, rearview cameras, available crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems and around view monitors.

The Quattroporte S’ standard 3.0 turbo V6 produces 59 more horsepower (424 vs. 365) and 30 lbs.-ft. more torque (406 vs. 376) than the K900’s 3.3 turbo V6. The Quattroporte GTS’ standard 3.8 turbo V8 produces 158 more horsepower (523 vs. 365) and 148 lbs.-ft. more torque (524 vs. 376) than the K900’s 3.3 turbo V6.

Fuel Economy and Range

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the Quattroporte’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The K900 doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

The Quattroporte has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The K900 doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

For better stopping power the Quattroporte GTS’ brake rotors are larger than those on the K900:

 

Quattroporte GTS

K900

Front Rotors

15 inches

14.2 inches

Rear Rotors

13.8 inches

13.4 inches

The Quattroporte’s standard front and rear disc brakes are vented to help dissipate heat for shorter stops with less fading. The rear discs standard on the K900 are solid, not vented.

Tires and Wheels

The Quattroporte’s optional 245/35R21 front and 285/30R21 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 35 series front and 30 series rear profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the K900’s 45 series front and 40 series rear tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Quattroporte offers optional 21-inch wheels. The K900’s largest wheels are only 19-inches.

The Quattroporte’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The K900 doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Quattroporte’s wheelbase is 2.6 inches longer than on the K900 (124.8 inches vs. 122.2 inches).

The front grille of the Quattroporte uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The K900 doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

The Quattroporte’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge – which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The K900 does not have an oil pressure gauge.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the Quattroporte to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The K900 doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Quattroporte has standard headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The K900 doesn’t offer headlight washers.

The Maserati Quattroporte outsold the Kia K900 by almost four to one during 2017.
