The restyled Quattroporte, representing the quintessence of Italian sport saloons, will be available from June and is destined to continue a success story that started in 2013. Since its initial launch, the iconic Maserati flagship model has been delivered to over 24,000 customers in 72 countries.
The exterior of the restyled Quattroporte is recognizable with a new bumper design with matte black profile at the front and the matte black extractor at the rear. The front grille is more pointed and imposing, and it introduces new vertical chrome elements that contrast with the deepness of the shark nose effect. Other distinguishing details of the new Quattroporte are the matte black side skirts and the exterior mirrors, which have been slightly restyled to incorporate new technical elements. An electrically adjustable Air Shutter has been fitted in the front grille between the air vents and the engine’s radiator.
Inside, the redesigned central dashboard now accommodates a capacitive high resolution 8.4-inch screen with multi touch function. This area is now characterized by a continuous technical element that integrates the screen, new climate control and new drawer in a single seamless design, emphasizing the pure volume composition typical of the Quattroporte. Other highlights include a redesigned, lowered console with a rotary control, a new lid and phone storage compartment, new infotainment system, and an Air Quality Sensor.
A new package of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems is available as an option in the new Quattroporte. It includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning with Advanced Brake Assist and Automated Emergency Braking. An additional new Surround View Camera is available as an option in combination with the Driver Assistance package.
The Maserati Quattroporte line-up: GranLusso, GranSport and GTS
The Quattroporte GranLusso is distinctive for a new front lower fascia design with an elegant floating bridge element and a delicate spoiler, detailed by the chrome bumper finish and the body color bumper profiles. The profile incorporates side skirts, while on the rear the look is even cleaner, characterized by a sculptured retro reflector and a body colored spoiler; the exterior look is completed by 20-inch Mercurio rims and black painted brake calipers.
In the cabin, the soul of the GranLusso is epitomized by the Ermenegildo Zegna Edition interior that features a patented silk fabric, unique in the industry, on the seats, doors, headliner and sun visors; the seat tailoring details and the label behind the sun visors make this version unique and exclusive. The cabin ambience is further refined thanks to the exclusive open pore Radica wood on the dashboard and the leather steering wheel with wooden inserts. The trim integrates comfort-oriented equipment like the power foot pedals, the electric rear sunblind, the four-zone air conditioning, the heated rear seat and the extended keyless entry.
For GranSport trim, the front’s dedicated restyling for the center and side air intakes improves the cooling function while showcasing an aggressive front area. The lower fascia is linked to the grille with aerodynamic inspired splits. The back is characterized by an evident composition between a center fuselage and two side pockets that focus the attention on the exhausts. An aggressive black piano spoiler completes the rear view.
The Quattroporte GranSport is fitted with 21-inch Titano rims and features a glossy black finish on the bumpers, red brake calipers and blue inserts in the front Trident and side Saetta badge as well as blue Tridents on the wheel centers. As an option, the front grille of the GranSport can be ordered in a glossy black finish.
The interior of the Quattroporte GranSport includes redesigned front and rear seats, with their sculptured profiles, to improve sporty driving performances while a new sport steering wheel, in carbon fiber or full leather, creates a strong identity. Thanks to the high gloss Piano Black wood trim on the dashboard, the brand new sport seats, the sport steering fitted with aluminium gearshift paddles and the stainless steel sport pedals, the interior of the Quattroporte GranSport guarantees a truly sporty experience. A further opportunity for customization is available in the form of the optional Exterior Carbon Pack for the GranSport .
Engine-wise, the Quattroporte remains faithful to its traditions with a very wide range of engines and transmissions starting with the Quattroporte GTS, powered by the immense 530 hp 3.8 liter Ferrari-produced V8 Twin-Turbo with rear wheel drive, capable of a peak torque of 710 Nm and able to propel the car to 310 km/h, accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 4.7 seconds.
The Quattroporte is also available with the 410 hp 3.0 liter Ferrari-produced V6 Twin-Turbo, with rear wheel drive, the Quattroporte S. At the top of its class with 550 Nm of torque and the 286 km/h top speed, accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 5.1 seconds. The range is completed by the Quattroporte Diesel; equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 Turbo, it delivers 600 Nm of torque with 275 hp, retaining a top speed of 252 km/h and a quick 0-100 km/h figure of just 6.4 seconds.
