For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Maserati Ghibli are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Jaguar XF doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

Both the Ghibli and the XF have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems and around view monitors.

The Ghibli has 1.6 gallons more fuel capacity than the XF (21.1 vs. 19.5 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

The Ghibli 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 XF doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

For better traction and acceleration, the Ghibli has larger standard rear tires than the XF (275/40R19 vs. 245/45R18). The Ghibli’s optional rear tires are larger than the largest rear tires available on the XF (285/35R20 vs. 255/35R20).

The Ghibli’s standard 275/40R19 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the XF’s standard 45 series tires. The Ghibli’s optional 285/30R21 rear tires have a lower 30 series profile than the XF’s optional 35 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Ghibli has standard 19-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the XF. The Ghibli’s optional 21-inch wheels are larger than the 20-inch wheels optional on the XF.

The Ghibli’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 XF doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Ghibli’s wheelbase is 1.5 inches longer than on the XF (118 inches vs. 116.5 inches).

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Ghibli is 1.3 inches wider in the front and 1.9 inches wider in the rear than the average track on the XF.

The Ghibli S Q4 handles at .91 G’s, while the XF Sedan AWD pulls only .81 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The Ghibli S Q4 executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 2.3 seconds quicker than the XF Sedan AWD (25.5 seconds @ .8 average G’s vs. 27.8 seconds @ .6 average G’s).

Because it has more passenger and cargo room, the EPA rates the Ghibli a Large car, while the XF Sedan is rated a Mid-size.

The Ghibli has 13 cubic feet more passenger volume than the XF (108 vs. 95).

The Ghibli has 1.7 inches more front headroom, .9 inches more front shoulder room, 1.2 inches more rear headroom and .1 inches more rear shoulder room than the XF Sedan.

The Ghibli’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 XF does not have an oil pressure gauge.

The Ghibli has a standard locking fuel door with a remote release located convenient to the driver. A locking fuel door helps prevent vandalism, such as sugar in the tank and fuel theft. The XF doesn’t offer a locking fuel door.
