Ride and Handling

This car hangs on to the corners very grippily and is particularly enjoyable on a twisty country road, which is where it feels most in its element. There seems to be a bit of compromise in the ride/handling department, however. The ride is somewhat less cushioned than that of some of its rivals, and there are times when it seems to have rather a hard edge. Over a coarse road surface, the suspension set-up feels just a touch too unforgiving, and can jar when going over the bumps. Although you expect a sporting saloon to have reasonably firm damping, the Ghibli’s ride quality is towards the lower end of acceptable.

Ease of Use

As a saloon it lacks the versatility you get with a hatchback but the Ghibli is among the more practical cars of its type. It has good interior room with decent access, although rear seat room is just a bit restricted on both knee and head space for a car in this class. The boot is well-sized at 500 litres. Some rivals have even more boot space – the Jaguar XF, for example, has 40 litres more - but we have no complaints about the luggage capacity of the Ghibli, and the boot is a practical shape for packing in plenty of kit.
