To keep its flagship looking fresh, Maserati put the Quattroporte under the knife. Along with a mild facelift, the four-door Maser receives two new trim levels in Europe, aimed at catering to the two specific groups of buyers who flock to the Italian sedan.
Visually, each Quattroporte now features a redesigned front and rear bumper, now with a new matte black accents. To match these new features, the Quattroporte wears matte black side skirts and restyled matte black mirrors.
When specified with the optional Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, driver aids such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision mitigation with advanced braking assist and automated emergency braking will come as standard on the 2017 Quattroporte.
Over to its engines, the 2017 Quattroporte will still be available with either V6 or V8 power. Both motors have been carried over from the pre-updated model, with the smaller 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 still producing 410 PS and 550 Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the more powerful twin-turbo V8 still cranks out 530 PS and 710 Nm of torque.
The flagship Quattroporte GTS is powered by a mental 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8, pushing 395kW and peak torque of 710Nm to the rear wheels. The GTS can sprint from 0-100km/h in 4.7 seconds, and onto a top speed of 310km/h.
All variants are equipped with a Maserati-tuned ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, electronic Skyhook shock absorbers, and an even weight distribution of 50:50. Thanks to an aluminium chassis construction, Maserati is billing the latest Quattroporte as the most luxurious but capable Quattroporte yet.
