The Maserati Indy may not have had the classic beauty of other Maserati's of the time, such as the Ghibli and other GTs, but being able to accommodate 4 people, made it a popular choice for families. The interiors were spacious, with plenty of leg room, and the large luggage holder area has 18 cubic feet of space. Hidden underneath the boot was space for car jacks, a tool kit and a spare wheel.
