Maserati presents the update to the Maserati Quattroporte, the most stately and sporty model in its range. Although at present Maserati is overturned with the launch of its first SUV, the Maserati Levante, after 3 and a half years in the market the Maserati Quattroporte is updated to offer improvements in design and equipment that allow it to face its second stage of commercial life. Even so, make no mistake, the Maserati Quattroporte 2017 will continue to bet heavily on its values: performance, sportiness and luxury.
Although the luxury saloon segment is experiencing a time where every novelty that we know speaks of the latest technology, the new Maserati Quattroporte reaffirms its commitment to the values of the brand, betting on performance as its best hallmark. It’s a luxury saloon, yes, but your war is on exclusivity and performance, not in the race for the best autonomous driving system.
That said, the main novelty of the Maserati Quattroporte is found in the restructuring of its range that now offers the GranLusso and Gran Sport lines as the most exclusive finishes available along with all the mechanics. This is a change in philosophy that aims to get Maserati Quattroporte customers to adapt the spirit, design and finishes of their car according to a specific environment. While the GranLusso line will offer greater emphasis on personalization and luxury, the GranSport line will bet on a more sporty and striking design.
The exterior design of the 2017 Maserati Quattroporte uses new bumpers and subtle changes to its bodywork aimed at improving its drag coefficient by 10%. One of the most striking elements will be its new active grill, released in the Maserati Levante, which will only allow air flow according to the demand for cooling.
Inside is where we discover the great change, finding a new central console with multimedia system with 8’4 inch touch screen. This new generation system will be compatible with Android Auto and Apple Car Play, assuming an important leap forward. In the same way, the adaptive cruise control is also new, which includes a Stop & Go tracking function to forget about traffic jams, autonomous emergency braking or the camera system with 360º vision.
The range of propellants remains intact, although some changes have been made to improve its performance. The 3.0 V6 gasoline engine now offers 350 hp and reaches 270 km / h, this being the access model to the Maserati Quattroporte range. The 3.0 V6 Diesel engine maintains its 275 hp, but now reaches 252 km / h. The 410 hp 3.0 V6 gasoline engine now reaches 286 hp, both in rear-wheel drive and Q4 all-wheel drive versions. Finally, the 3.8 V8 gasoline engine with 530 hp now reaches 310 km / h. All the mechanics are associated with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission per torque converter.
