Paris motor show opened its doors last Thursday, day 29 and, despite the fact that we have already passed the vast majority of news of great importance, we want to continue telling each and every one of the developments that are left to see by appointment by the French, as the new Maserati Quattroporte.
As we showed some days ago, before that tore the event, the update of the Ghibli, but these lines have as protagonist the Maserati Quattroporte, the other big novelty of the Italian company of the trident. It is not a new model in itself, as we are speaking of the sixth generation of the Quattroporte, but yes a face wash with slight cosmetic changes and functional in addition to the introduction two new finishes range available in both diesel as in gasoline.
cosmetic changes come from the hand of a few new bumpers with details in matte black on both the front as in the rear, as well as in the exterior mirrors. The feature and always recognizable front grille of the models of Maserati has been redesigned partially by introducing some ways more similar to those used in the SUV Maserati Levante, although it is still perfectly recognizable as a model of the brand trident.
equipment level has received significant changes since the luxury saloon and Italian now offers a new boutonniere in the center console, enhanced infotainment system with screen 8.4 inch that has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also incorporates the latest security systems which meet in a set that Maserati called ADAS. Among them are adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go, lane departure warning, collision warning with front brake automatic camera and peripheral vision.
on the other hand, there are two trim levels above that respond to the name of GranLusso and GranSport. Says the brand that they have both been created for customers seeking a point of differentiation and unique in this luxury segment. As you can imagine, the GranLusso looking for the maximum expression of luxury and comfort, while the Quattroporte GranSport chasing the maximum performance possible without losing the qualities of elegance and comfort of the Italian model.
In regards to the engines, the range remains as to the time. It starts with a 3-liter diesel V6 275 hp, followed by the 3-liter V6 turbo gasoline with 410 hp that is offered with rear-wheel drive and integral. The highest point is the V8 of 3.8 litres, which reaches the 530 hp that is only available with the Maserati Quattroporte GTS and which exceeds the 300 km/h at its maximum speed.
