So after three fairly fruitful years of presence in the market, the second-generation Maserati Quattroporte has undergone a facelift for the 2017 modelyear version in which it has gotten a nose job and some new styling details along with improved specs. It also gets two new trim levels of GranLusso and GranSport.
To be honest with you when this version of Maserati Quattroporte was unveiled in 2013 with its new looks which had nothing to do with the iconic first-generation model, we sort of stopped loving it and the new styling changes do little to make us fall for it again. You get revised bumpers with matte black profile at the front and the matte black extractor at the rear, new chrome grille and matte black side skirts and the exterior mirrors. It’s like the current QP, but with a more professionally applied mascara.
One area where the improvements have made the 2017 Maserati Quattroporte Facelift a better car than the current version is the interior, mostly in terms of the equipment and features. The redesigned dash now accommodates a 8.4” high-def screen with multi touch function, and you get a rotary control for volume and function control, a new lid and phone storage compartment. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, as is a new Air Quality Sensor for the air con.
As for the more technical improvements, the 2017 Maserati Quattroporte comes with electrically adjustable Air Shutter for better aerodynamics, new wheel designs, higher top speed for all models including V6 petrol, V6 diesel and V8 petrol, and optional Advanced Driver Assistance Systems package including Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning with Advanced Brake Assist and Automated Emergency Braking.
