The Maserati Ghibli, Levante and Quattroporte have all received updated styling and technology for 2021.

    A new, frameless 10.1-inch touchscreen Maserati Intelligent Assistant multimedia system has been installed in the Ghibli and Quattroporte.

    It uses the Android Automotive operating system with a new user interface that mixes black and gold. The glass at the top of the display is now curved.

    The Maserati Levante sticks with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, though it also has more of a curved look to it and boasts improved resolution.

    All three Maserati lines retain analogue gauges that flank a 7.0-inch display screen, though the gauges have been refreshed to have a richer and more high-tech look.

    Maserati has also replaced the plastic covering with anti-dazzle flat glass to improve visibility, while the display screen has improved resolution and graphics to match the touchscreen interface.

    The three models’ suite of active safety features has been supplemented with Maserati’s Active Driving Assist, an updated version of the existing Highway Assist.

    This helps keep the vehicle centred in its lane on any well-maintained road at speeds of up to 145km/h if you’ve activated the adaptive cruise control.

    The Ghibli, Levante and Quattroporte all have a restyled front grille and tail light graphics, which have a boomerang shape Maserati says is inspired by the 3200 GT.

    The restyled front grille is finished in chrome in GranLusso models and in piano black in GranSport models; this also applies to the tail light surrounds.

    GranLusso and GranSport models continue to be distinguished from each other via subtle styling tweaks, like the colour of the brake calipers, the design of the alloy wheels, and the detail of the front bumpers.

    Maserati says the visual updates to all three models are designed to give the cars a unified design identity.

    Later in the first half of this year, the Ghibli range will be supplemented with a mild-hybrid version that mates a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine with a 48V starter/generator capable of offering an engine boost under heavy loads, allowing for smoother start/stop and coasting at highway speeds.

    Peak power is 246kW, and the 100km/h sprint is dispatched in 5.7 seconds from standstill.

    At the other end of the spectrum, Maserati is launching flagship Trofeo versions of the Ghibli and Quattroporte in the first half of this year following the introduction of the Levante Trofeo.

    These will be the fastest sedans in Maserati history, with both using the same twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre petrol V8 from the Levante Trofeo with 433kW of power and 730Nm of torque mated to an eight-speed ZF-sourced automatic transmission.

    A mechanical locking limited-slip rear differential is standard.

    Although a less powerful version of the same engine has previously been used in the Quattroporte GTS, it’s the first time a V8 has been stuffed in the nose of the BMW 5 Series-rivalling Ghibli sedan.
