On the EPA test cycle the Quattroporte S RWD gets better fuel mileage than the CTS V-Sport RWD turbo V6 (17 city/24 hwy vs. 16 city/24 hwy).

Regardless of its engine, the Quattroporte’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The CTS V-Sport doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

The Quattroporte has 2 gallons more fuel capacity than the CTS (21 vs. 19 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

For better traction and acceleration, the Quattroporte has larger standard rear tires than the CTS (275/40R19 vs. 245/45R17). The Quattroporte’s optional rear tires are larger than the largest rear tires available on the CTS (285/35R20 vs. 255/35R19).

The Quattroporte’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 CTS’ standard 45 series tires. The Quattroporte’s optional 285/30R21 rear tires have a lower 30 series profile than the CTS’ optional 35 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Quattroporte has standard 19-inch wheels. Smaller 17-inch wheels are standard on the CTS. The Quattroporte’s optional 21-inch wheels are larger than the 19-inch wheels optional on the CTS.

The Quattroporte has a standard space-saver spare tire so you can replace a flat tire and drive to have the flat repaired or replaced. A spare tire isn’t available on the CTS; it requires you to depend on its run-flat tires, which limits mileage and speed before they are repaired. If a run-flat is damaged beyond repair by a road hazard your vehicle will have to be towed.

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 CTS doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Quattroporte’s wheelbase is 10.2 inches longer than on the CTS (124.8 inches vs. 114.6 inches).

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Quattroporte is 2.8 inches wider in the front and 2.8 inches wider in the rear than the average track on the CTS.

The design of the Maserati Quattroporte amounts to more than styling. The Quattroporte has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .28 Cd. That is lower than the CTS (.3) and many sports cars. A more efficient exterior helps keep the interior quieter and helps the Quattroporte get better fuel mileage.

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

The Quattroporte has 17 cubic feet more passenger volume than the CTS (114 vs. 97).

The Quattroporte has 11 inches more front hip room, 7.4 inches more front shoulder room, .3 inches more rear headroom, 4.5 inches more rear hip room and .5 inches more rear shoulder room than the CTS.

For enhanced passenger comfort on long trips the Quattroporte’s available rear seats recline. The CTS’ rear seats don’t recline.

The Quattroporte has a much larger trunk than the CTS (18.7 vs. 13.7 cubic feet).

To make loading and unloading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full, the Quattroporte’s power trunk can be opened or closed just by kicking your foot under the back bumper, leaving your hands completely free. The CTS doesn’t offer a power or hands-free opening trunk.

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 CTS does not have an oil pressure gauge.

If the windows are left open on the Quattroporte the driver can close them all from a distance using the remote. The driver of the CTS can only close the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The Quattroporte’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The CTS’ standard manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

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 CTS 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 CTS doesn’t offer headlight washers.

Optional air conditioned front and rear seats keep the Quattroporte’s passengers comfortable and take the sting out of hot leather in summer. The CTS doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats in the rear.

The Quattroporte has a standard heated steering wheel to take the chill out of steering on extremely cold winter days before the car heater warms up. A heated steering wheel costs extra on the CTS.
