Luxury automakers love leasing cars, as they make a little money, the buyer gets a complete tax write-off and the company gets a well-maintained car back at the end of the contract. For July 2014, Maserati is giving U.S. customers a new reason to love the Ghibli, as it is offering an enticing lease deal: a three-year lease at a cost of just $799 a month. That’s an incredible deal for a car that carries a $71k MSRP.

The Ghibli is an attractive ride from front to back that’s complemented by a luxurious interior, a powerful engine, and yes, high fuel efficiency. In a lot of ways, it really is the complete package. And with this offer, it is apparent that Maserati is pushing the model hard.

This lease deal affords the leasee 10,000 miles per year and requires $5,249 at signing. Both requirements are rather acceptable for a short-term lease like this.

The promotion is available until July 31, 2014. That’s a little over two weeks from now so it’s probably a good idea to see if you can afford to take up Maserati’s offer.

Why It Matters

You don’t normally see terms like this for an Italian model, let alone a brand new luxury sedan in the mold of the Maserati Ghibli.

As part of the terms of conditions, leasers are required to fork over $5,249 at the time of the lease’s signing. It’s a 36-month lease, which means that those interested could spend close to $29,000 on the luxury sedan to "own" it for three years. Some people are going to love these terms but some will probably scoff at it and opt for something a little lower in the luxury ladder.

If you’re interested, we suggest you hit up a local Maserati dealership or contact the nearest authorized dealer so you can set up a test drive.

The Maserati Ghibli isn’t the fastest, the most powerful, or even the most luxurious model in the company’s entire lineup. But it offers a good amount of all those things and it’s the company’s most affordable model, too.

All those factors play a huge role on why we’re so high on the Ghibli. It looks like a rock star, and has a fresh and luxurious cabin to complement the body. Power comes in the form of a 3.0-liter, V-6 engine that produces up to 404 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque in its S Q4 guise. Those figures are enough to propel the Ghibli from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds to go with a top speed of 177 mph.
