Maserati has officially unveiled the brand new and restyled 2017 Quattroporte.
The restyled Quattroporte features a brand new front bumper design with matte black design accents. A matte black diffuser has also been fitted to the rear. Maserati redesigned the front grille with new vertical chrome elements in order to make it look more imposing and pointed.
Also included in the restyle are the side view mirrors and side skirts finished in matte black.
Maserati has fitted what they call an Air Shutter to the front grille. The purpose of the Air Shutter is to regulate the the engine’s fluid temperature and provide 10% less aerodynamic drag.
On the inside, a new capacitive high resolution 8.4” screen with multi touch function has been fitted along with a handful of other improvements.
Two trim levels are now available – GranSport and GranLusso. GranSport cars receive more aggressive exterior styling in addition to 21-inch wheels and carbon fiber accents. GranLusso trim cars receive a higher level of luxury in the interior including option Ermenegildo Zegna silk fabric for the seats, door liners, sun visors and headliner.
We expect powertrain options to carry over from the 2016 model, however Maserati has not confirmed powertrain options yet. If they do carry over we expect the base model to be the Quattroporte S with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 delivering 404 horsepower. The top of the range GTS will feature a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-8 delivering 523 hp.
The brand new Quattroporte will be available for purchase starting this month. Since its launch three years ago, over 24,000 customers have taken delivery of a Quattroporte in 72 countries around the world.
