After three and a half years in international markets, the Quattroporte has undergone a substantial restyling that accentuates its elegance without altering its signature Maserati personality.
The restyled Quattroporte, representing the quintessence of Italian sport saloons, 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 recognisable 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. The Air Shutter provides optimal control of the engine’s fluid temperature and, together with the optimisation of the new front and rear bumpers, air conveyor and flat bottom, improves the aerodynamic drag of the car by 10 percent.
The improvements to the interior were introduced to enhance the purity of the model by underlining only the functional parts. This takes place through the clean integration of the new interface elements with the infotainment area and tunnel console.
Specifically, the redesigned central dashboard now accommodates a capacitive high-resolution 8.4-inch screen with multi-touch function. This area is now characterised by a continuous technical element that integrates the screen, new climate control and new drawer in a single seamless design, emphasising the pure volume composition typical of the Quattroporte.
The central, lower console has also been redesigned and now features a rotary control for volume and function control, a new lid and phone storage compartment. The stylistic approach to these functional elements permits a minimalist design approach for the centre of the dashboard.
The new infotainment system is compatible with both the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions.
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.
All Quattroporte models are now equipped with an Air Quality Sensor, a feature that substantially improves comfort levels for the occupants on board. This system combines an intelligent sensor and a signal analysis system that calculates the external pollution levels and prevents polluted air and toxic gases from entering the cabin.
With the restyling of the flagship Quattroporte, Maserati launches a new range strategy to offer its highly discerning clientele the additional choice of two unique trim options that emphasise the two key pillars of the brand’s DNA: GranLusso and GranSport.
The two highly distinctive trims are available as an upgrade for all Quattroporte V6 powertrain versions (Quattroporte Diesel and Quattroporte S). Both trims will be priced at the same level across the range.
The top-of-the-range version, the Quattroporte GTS with the twin-turbo V8, will be available exclusively with either the GranLusso or GranSport trims as part of the standard equipment.
Each trim level was conceived to meet the needs of customers who seek a distinctive and unique product in the executive saloon segment. The GranLusso and GranSport are immediately recognisable thanks to their distinct exteriors and unique interiors.
The GranLusso trim reinterprets the concept of luxury in a race-bred engineered luxury saloon by enhancing the exterior finish and improving in-cabin comfort for driver and passengers. It offers a higher level of luxury using exclusive materials and special features in the finest tradition of Italian craftsmanship.
The GranSport trim underscores the sporty character of the Quattroporte while enhancing the aggressive appearance of the car, thanks to new exterior design cues and interior content that reflect the legendary racing heritage of the Maserati brand.
