The refreshed model will be available from June 2016.

After three and a half years on the market and more than 24,000 sales in 72 countries, the Maserati Quattroporte is receiving a mid-life facelift.

We already knew it was coming as in January this year the refreshed range-topping model for the Italian company was spied testing with almost no camouflage. Now, the vehicle is here in its full glory, posing for the attached photo session with new bumper design with matte black profile at the front and matte black extractor at the rear. The front grille is redesigned and now incorporates new vertical chrome elements, while other minor visual changes also include the restyled exterior mirrors and the matte black side skirts. In addition, engineers have installed an electrically adjustable Air Shutter between the air vents and the engine’s radiator, providing optimal control of the engine’s fluid temperature. All aerodynamic improvements result in ten percent better aerodynamic drag coefficient.

Step inside the cabin and you will find a refined atmosphere with redesigned dashboard that now accommodates a capacitive high resolution Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible infotainment system with 8.4-inch screen with multi touch function. The reshaped layout is home for the screen, a new climate control, and new drawer in a “single seamless design.”

Customers will be able to select a new optional package of assistance systems that includes adaptive cruise control with stop and go function, lane departure warning, forward collision warning with advanced brake assist, and automated emergency braking.

Maserati’s sports sedan will continue to be offered with the same engine range that includes the 530-horsepower (390 kilowatts) 3.8-liter Ferrari-sourced V8 Twin-Turbo, which propels the car up to 193 miles per hour (310 kilometers per hour). The company has retuned the 3.0-liter V6 engine that is now producing additional 20 hp (15 kW)  for a grand total of 350 hp (257 kW). The same motor is also available with 410 hp (302 kW), while diesel fans will be delighted to hear the 3.0 V6 diesel version now has a slightly increased high speed.

On a final note, the range-topping Maserati model is getting two distinctive GranLusso and New GranSport trims that will be offered to customers as an upgrade for all V6-powered models. These two are “immediately recognizable thanks to their distinct exterior design and unique interiors” and will come as standard for the top of the range version, the Quattroporte GTS.

Sales of the refreshed Quattroporte start in June 2016.
