MASERATI QUATTROPORTE 2017superadmin
For the last 50 years, Quattroporte has been Maserati’s flagship model, which has, over the years, been sold in over 24,000 examples in 72 countries altogether. Since its beginnings, it was always meant for those who wanted something more than ‘just a vehicle’. Even though the Quattroporte didn’t seem to need any enhancements because it was already pretty amazing, this year’s remake brings us an even more luxurious and exclusive experience.
However, when it comes to Maserati, it’s not all about the looks. The new version’s exterior and interior have been polished not only for further aesthetic appeal but also for the functionality. This is showcased in the two new trim packages the buyers can choose from – GranLusso and GranSport.
Those who look for a more luxurious and lavish feel can decide on the sumptuousness of the GranLusso trim, which dresses the interior in the style by the leading fashion house of Ermenegildo Zegna. The seats, headliner, doors, and sun visors are decorated with silk fabric – Maserati is actually the only brand in the world with silk interiors. The steering wheel is dressed in leather and the dashboard in open-pore Radica wood. The rear seats aren’t only clad in top-notch materials but are also heated, offering you nothing but comfort. The car is also equipped with four-zone air-conditioning and electric rear sunblind.
These are, however, not the only changes that have been made inside the cabin. The car is now also equipped with the Air Quality Sensor, which prevents pollutants from entering the car; a central dashboard with an 8.4-inch touchscreen display, and a rotary knob for function control on the lower console. Optional additions include the Surround View Camera that can provide adaptive cruise control, and for ample connectivity, this car’s new infotainment system integrates with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone platforms.
If we look at the car from the outside, we will see straight away that the exterior was slightly altered too. The car’s aerodynamics have been reinforced by 10 percent with a new Air Shutter that lowers drag, which, at the same time, improves the fuel consumption by three percent. As for the general impression, this model seems slightly more aggressive due to the pointed front grille featuring new vertical chrome embellishments and matte black side skirts.
The car has a V8 engine and it’s amazing on the road. It’s perfectly stable in hard cornering, and if it becomes unsettled for any reason, it will warn you of the loss of grip before it could spit you off the road.
In a nutshell, the Quattroporte is a really good car – but Maserati rarely disappoints us anyway. All the disadvantages it struggled with now seem to be more-less eliminated, especially considering the in-car technology buyers of German sedans are taking for granted.
So, if you want a Maserati Quattroporte for yourself, if you love being different, and enjoy fast, luxurious, but also safe rides, better contact us, because the new 2017 model is to be released this month.
