From the outside, the facelifted car is set apart by new bumpers with matte black trim and chrome elements, as well as new matte black side skirts and mirrors. The grille has also been revamped and fitted with the electrically adjustable Air Shutter. Automatically actuated by the car’s on-board computers, the grille will open and close to moderate the engine fluid temperatures and reduce drag.
Inside, the redesigned dash is dominated by the 8.4in screen and climate control switchgear, while lower down there is an updated centre console with new switchgear and storage cubbies.
The traditional GranLusso and GranSport trims will be up for grabs with the former focusing more on luxury and the later more on performance. GranLusso gets 20-inch Mercurio rims and black brake calipers with use of some exclusive high-end materials in the interiors. GranSport gets 21-inch Titano rims, red brake calipers and sporty interiors, comprising of new sporty seats, sporty steering wheel fitted with aluminium gearshift paddles and stainless steel sport pedals.
The range is completed by the Quattroporte Diesel; equipped with a 3.0-litre 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.
All versions of the Quattroporte are fitted with state-of-the-art ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and electronically-controlled Skyhook shock absorbers; with an ideal 50:50 weight distribution and an extensive use of aluminium in the chassis, body and suspension, performance and comfort are again unparalleled.
