The restyled Quattroporte has been revealed in Oman sporting an upgraded V6 engine and two new trim lines.
“The Quattroporte was born when Maserati decided to lower the engine of a race car into a four-door – “quattro porte” – salon car in 1963. Nobody had done anything like that before and until today our Quattroporte drives with a Ferrari produced engine. A legacy that now continues with the new model,” said Alfardan Motors’ Assistant General Manager, Mohamed El Zawawy.
The restyled Quattroporte’s exterior can be recognised by the new bumper design with matte black profile at the front and the matte black extractor at the rear. Even the new front grille, a centre piece of the Maserati identity, evolves into a new shape inspired by the Alfieri. It is more pointed and imposing, and introduces new vertical chrome elements in contrast to the deepness of the shark nose effect. Other distinguishing details of the new Quattroporte are the matte black side skirts and the exterior mirrors, slightly restyled as well to incorporate some new technical features.
On the interior, the redesigned central dashboard now accommodates a high resolution 8.4” screen with multi touch function. The central, lower console has also been redesigned and now features a rotary knob for volume and functions control. The new infotainment system is compatible with both the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions. The new Air Quality Sensor substantially improves the comfort for the occupants through 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.
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 as well as a new Surround View Camera.
With the restyling of the flagship, the Quattroporte, Maserati launches a new trim strategy in order to offer its highly demanding clientele the additional choice of two unique trim lines that emphasize the two key pillars of the brand’s DNA: GranLusso and GranSport. Each trim level was conceived to meet the needs of clients that seek a differentiated and unique product in the luxury sedan segment.
