Every great luxury sport sedan can be judged by three main qualities: angles, innovation, and power. Brimming with Italian panache and German precision, the 2020 Maserati Ghibli and the BMW 5 Series sit at the top of their highly competitive class.
Each delivers unparalleled performance to take on the streets of Willow Grove, Abington, and Horsham. Perhaps there’s only one question left to ask: Which sedan is right for you?
Here at Faulkner Maserati Willow Grove, we’re ready to provide answers. Continue reading our Maserati Ghibli vs. BMW 5 Series comparison before contacting us today.
Alps vs the Autobahn: Performance Specs
Uncompromising in their driving dynamics, the 2020 Ghibli and the BMW 5 Series elegantly deliver that heart-racing drama you want from a European sport sedan. While they’re engineered to compete under the most demanding conditions, you’ll find both make perfect companions for the everyday drive.
While the BMW 5 Series lineup of engines tries to please everyone, the Maserati Ghibli knows what you truly desire: power. Featuring a Ferrari-derived V6 engine, the base Ghibli trim produces 345 horsepower and a top speed of 166 MPH.
By comparison, the base 5 Series comes with a TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine that generates 248 horsepower and a top speed of 130 MPH. Both models come with rear-wheel drive.
BMW drivers who opt for a higher trim have the added benefit of the legendary xDrive all-wheel-drive system. Not missing a step, Maserati offers the Ghibli S Q4 trim with intelligent all-wheel drive and Active Torque Control.
This technology works in perfect harmony with the available Skyhook performance suspension. Now you can make sharp bends and snowy roads feel like a cruise through the park.
Function Meets Flare: Maserati Ghibli vs BMW 5 Series Interior
Some luxury sport sedans are designed for the workweek while others are purely for weekend adventure. The 2020 Ghibli manages to strike the perfect balance between both worlds.
From the available class-exclusive Ermenegildo Zegna silk upholstery to the high-gloss Rovere wood veneer, the Ghibli embodies the Italian philosophy of “Sprezzatura.”
This passion for considered effortlessness finds its way down to the smallest details: the power adjustable foot pedals, soft-close doors, and heated leather sport steering wheel help you seamlessly slip into a driving mindset.
On the other hand, the BMW 5 Series puts almost its full attention toward the act of driving. Its 16-way power front sport seats do an excellent job at providing the perfect vantage point.
To help you hit the highway faster, each model also uses an advanced remote start system with memory that presets everything from your exterior windows to the temperature inside the cabin.
A Symphony Under the Hood and Inside the Cabin: Innovative Technology
The intentional act of getting lost is one of the great pleasures of driving a luxury sport sedan. While you’re out discovering new roads, the 2020 Ghibli and the 5 Series each make sure to keep you fully connected to what you love back home.
For its part, the Ghibli uses an 8.4-inch multi-touchscreen with center console rotary control. Since it features both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, you can quickly sync your smartphone to take calls, look up directions, and access your favorite apps.
All road trips need a great soundtrack. That’s why Maserati offers a 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound System. Now you can experience crystal-clear audio without the cost of a ticket.
By comparison, BMW loads the 5 Series with similar technologies. Drivers might find its iDrive 7.0 system harder to navigate. It also lacks Android Auto™ capability.
Maserati Ghibli vs BMW 5 Series: The Finish Line
The bottom line is, when you compare the 2020 Maserati Ghibli against the BMW 5 Series, it’s evident no comparison really exists. The Maserati outperforms the competition at almost every turn.
