Press Kit: The New Quattroporte. By Maserati

The New Quattroporte. By Maserati

After three and a half years of unprecedented success in the international markets, the Quattroporte has undergone a substantial restyling that accentuates its elegance without altering its signature Maserati personality.

The restyled Quattroporte, representing the quintessence of Italian sport saloons, will be available from June 2016 and is destined to continue a success story that started in 2013. Since its initial launch, the iconic Maserati flagship model has been delivered to over 24,000 customers in 72 countries.

The exterior of the restyled Quattroporte is recognisable with a new bumper design with matte black profile at the front and the matte black extractor at the rear. The front grille, a typical Maserati feature, evolves into a new Alfieri-inspired shape that has already featured on the Levante. It is more pointed and imposing, and it introduces new vertical chrome elements that contrast with the deepness of the shark nose effect. Other distinguishing details of the  New Quattroporte are the matte black side skirts and the exterior mirrors, which have been slightly restyled to incorporate new technical elements.

An electrically adjustable Air Shutter has also been fitted in the front grille between the air vents and the engine’s radiator. The Air Shutter provides optimal control of the engine’s fluid temperature and, together with the optimization of the new front and rear bumpers, air conveyor and flat bottom, improves the aerodynamic drag of the car by 10%, contributing also in fuel consumption reduction of about 3% while driving on the highway.

The improvements to the interior were introduced to enhance the purity of the model by underlining only the functional parts. This takes place through the clean integration of the new interface elements with the infotainment area and tunnel console.

Specifically, the redesigned central dashboard now accommodates a capacitive high resolution 8.4” screen with multi touch function.


This area is now characterized by a continuous technical element that integrates the screen, new climate control and new drawer in a single seamless design, emphasizing the pure volume composition typical of the Quattroporte.

The central lower console has also been redesigned and now features a rotary knob for volume and function control, a new lid and phone storage compartment.  The stylistic approach to these functional elements permits a minimalist design approach for the centre of the dashboard.

The new infotainment system is compatible with both the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions.

All Quattroporte are now equipped with an Air Quality Sensor, a feature that substantially improves comfort levels for the occupants on-board. This system combines an intelligent sensor and a signal analysis system that calculates the external pollution levels and prevents polluted air and toxic gases from entering the cabin.

A new package of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems is available as an option in the new Quattroporte. It includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning with Advanced Brake Assist and Automated Emergency Braking. An additional new Surround View Camera is available as an option in combination with the Driver Assistance package.

GranLusso and GranSport, two distinct new worlds

Since its beginnings Maserati has represented the perfect blend of luxury and sportiness thanks to its race-bred engineering. 

With the restyling of the flagship Quattroporte, Maserati launches a new range strategy to offer its highly demanding clientele the additional choice of two unique trim options that emphasize the two key pillars of the brand’s DNA: GranLusso and GranSport 

The two highly distinctive trims are available as an upgrade for all Quattroporte V6 powertrain versions (Quattroporte diesel, Quattroporte, Quattroporte S, Quattroporte S Q4). Both trims will be priced at the same level across the range.


The top of the range version, the Quattroporte GTS, which features the twin-turbo V8, will be available exclusively with either the GranLusso or GranSport trims as part of the standard equipment.

Each trim level was conceived to meet the needs of customers that seek a distinctive and unique product in the executive saloon segment.

GranLusso and GranSport are immediately recognisable thanks to their distinct exterior design and unique interiors.

GranLusso trim

The GranLusso trim reinterprets the concept of luxury in a race-bred engineered luxury saloon by enhancing the exterior finish and improving in-cabin comfort for both driver and passengers.

It offers a higher level of luxury using exclusive materials and special features in the finest tradition of Italian craftsmanship.

GranLusso is distinctive for a new front lower fascia design with an elegant floating bridge element and a delicate spoiler, detailed by the chrome bumper finish and the body colour bumper profiles. The profile incorporates side skirts, while on the rear the look is even cleaner, characterized by a sculptured retroreflector and a body coloured spoiler; the exterior look is completed by 20” Mercurio rims and black painted brake calipers.

In the cabin the soul of the GranLusso is epitomised by the Ermenegildo Zegna Edition interior that features a patented silk fabric, unique in the industry, on the seats, doors, headliner and sun visors; the seat tailoring details and the label behind the sun visors make this version unique and exclusive.

The cabin ambience is further refined thanks to the exclusive open pore Radica wood on the dashboard and the leather steering wheel with wooden inserts. The trim integrates comfort-oriented equipment like the power foot pedals, the electric rear sunblind, the four-zone air conditioning, the heated rear seat and the extended keyless entry.

 

GranSport trim

The GranSport trim underscores the sporty character of the Quattroporte while enhancing the aggressive appearance of the car.  Thanks to new exterior design cues and interior contents that reflect the legendary racing heritage of the Maserati brand.

On the front of the Quattroporte GranSport, the dedicated restyling for the centre and side air intakes improves the cooling function while showcasing an aggressive front area. The lower fascia is linked to the grille with aerodynamic inspired splits. The back is characterized by an evident composition between a centre fuselage and two side pockets that focus the attention on the exhausts. An aggressive black piano spoiler completes the rear view.

The Quattroporte GranSport is fitted with 21” Titano rims and features a glossy black finish on the bumpers, red brake calipers and blue inserts in the front Trident and side Saetta logo as well as blue Tridents on the wheel centres. As an option, the front grille of the GranSport can be ordered in a glossy black finish.

The Interiors of the Quattroporte GranSport includes redesigned front and rear seats, with their sculptured profiles, to improve sporty driving performances while a new sport steering wheel, in carbon fibre or full leather, creates a strong identity.

Thanks to the high gloss Piano Black wood trim on the dashboard, the brand new sport seats, the sport steering wheel fitted with aluminium gearbox paddles and the stainless steel sport pedals, the interior of the Quattroporte GranSport guarantees a truly sporty experience.

A further opportunity for customization is available in the form of the optional Exterior Carbon Pack for the GranSport trim, to further enhance the sporty exterior. This pack features external mirrors, door handles and b-pillar cover plus the profile of the front bumper in carbon fibre.

New Quattroporte: elegant expression of distinctive styles

A classic example of genuine Italian design, the New Quattroporte adopts a restyling that accentuates its signature Maserati personality.

The best Italian designers have been involved in developing the Quattroporte design language during the 53-year history of the model.

In 1963, the first Quattroporte blended the qualities of speed, style and luxury in a sleek body designed by Pietro Frua. Maserati has been considered a master of sports saloon design ever since.

The second-generation version in 1974 was designed by Bertone, while Giorgetto Giugiaro designed the highly successful 1979 Quattroporte; Marcello Gandini redefined the model with his compact 1994 Quattroporte and Pininfarina’s 2003 Quattroporte set the design standard for the segment for almost a decade.

The uniquely rich design heritage of the previous Quattroporte generations was amalgamated in the current model. A large cabin with an attractive shape featuring extremely dynamic lines and Italian elegance are at the core of the latest Quattroporte design. The long, dominant and powerful nose is sculpted around the new grille, a core feature of the Maserati identity that evolves into a new Alfieri-inspired shape that has already featured on Levante. It is more pointed and imposing, and it introduces new vertical chrome elements that contrast with the deepness of the shark nose effect.

More than three years after its presentation the Quattroporte remains distinctive and exclusive, a harmonious combination of elegance and sportiness, the epitome of masculinity. Its timeless feel was fully respected by the Maserati Design Centre in Turin during the restyling process.

The exterior of the new Quattroporte is distinctive for the new bumper design that features a matte black front profile and rear extractor. Side skirts are also painted in matte black. The three-dimensional grille, a nod to the glorious past of Maserati and sensational models like the A6 GCS, is now even more enthralling thanks to the adoption of chrome vertical ribs.

Beneath the rear bumper, the V8 models can be identified by their twin, trapezoidal integrated dual pipes in chrome plated stainless steel while the V6 and Diesel models use twin oval dual exhaust pipes.

Aerodynamics

The design of the Quattroporte's body isn’t just about looks, a large part of the Quattroporte’s aerodynamic work is out of sight, beneath the car. It has a flat floor that contains several aerodynamic features including a NACA duct to help cool the differential without increasing drag and flaps on the rear suspension arms to channel airflows.

The signature Maserati grille has evolved into a functional element of active aerodynamics, adopting an electrically adjustable Air Shutter between the air vents and the engine’s radiator. The Air Shutter -recently introduced in the Levante model - provides optimal control of the engine temperature, reduces the aerodynamic drag of the car and subsequently reduces fuel consumption and emissions. Thanks to the adoption of the Air Shutter, the Cx coefficient of the Quattroporte is reduced by 10% to an exceptional 0.28.

Standard Adaptive Front-lighting System

The standard headlights contain an Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) for an outstanding view of the road.

Each headlight includes LED daytime running lights, with a light shape that is instantly recognisable in both daylight and at night. Each light also contains a high-pressure lens washer nozzle, direction indicators, LED side position lights and a side reflector.

Sensors monitor the driving style and speed and if the road is clear, the beam depth offers the greatest depth and width, combined with the directional rotation of the headlights themselves.

In addition, there are four different automatic lighting setups: for city driving, for motorway conditions, for low visibility and for driving on the opposite side of the road in applicable countries. Each of these modes automatically activates a strategy to best illuminate the road surface.

The Town Beam turns on below 45 km/h and sets the beam wider and shallower, giving a better view for turning and for peripheral danger zones while causing minimum disturbance for fellow road users. Country Beam turns on at speeds below 90 km/h and in the driving conditions typical of a normal street, sets the beam to be wider and less deep on the left side but just a little bit deeper on the right side. There is also a specific function for use in case of rain, activated when the windscreen wipers are in operation. The individual beams are set to different levels to minimise reflections, while the outer beams are set wider and higher to make the Quattroporte more visible to other road users.

The Quattroporte’s tail lights have been designed to offer maximum visibility and to create a recognisable style. These full LED lights integrate the position light function in an illuminated ring running right around the tail light itself. Inside this ring are the brake lights, the direction indicators, reverse lights and fog lights. The outside reflector and LED side position lights round off the unit.

Wheels and tyres

Featuring 19” rims as standard equipment on the Quattroporte, Quattroporte S, S Q4 and Diesel, all models can be fitted with various 20” and 21” wheels, even with forged technology.

The newly introduced GranLusso trim is available with standard 20” Mercurio wheels while the GranSport comes with the 21” Titano* wheels.

While flow-forming technology reduces the core thickness of the wheels and optimizes weight without sacrificing stiffness and strength, the forged alloy wheels emphasizes light weight.

All the Quattroporte’s rims have been designed and engineered to enhance both the visual design of the body and to lower the unsprung mass to improve grip and handling.

The 19” wheel, with its 245/45 front and 275/40 rear tyres, is geared towards reduced fuel consumption combined with low road noise and long, comfortable journeys and with a long tested compound capable of offering the sporty performance expected of it.

The 20” wheel, with a 245/40 front tyre and a 285/35 rear tyre, is the perfect compromise between sports and comfort, while the 21” wheel, with a 245/35 front and 285/30 rear tyre combination, is focused on sports handling. All three wheel sizes are available with Pirelli, Dunlop and Continental tyres. While the 19” and 20” wheels can be fitted with winter tyres, no commercially made 21” winter tyre is available.


The Quattroporte also continuously monitors its tyre pressure with a sensor mounted inside the rim, as part of the valve; the pressure can be read off the display on the dashboard. In the case of punctures or tyre pressure variation, the system notifies the driver with visual and acoustic warnings.

Refinement and individuality

The elegant interior of the Quattroporte is further refined by new hi-tech content. The addition of the GranLusso and GranSport trims to the existing base versions offers more structured possibilities for individualization with distinctive styles.

Thanks to its dimensions, the latest generation Quattroporte has set a benchmark for roominess for the front and, especially, the rear passengers. Its wheelbase has allowed Maserati to add more rear legroom and more shoulder room for all passengers.

The interior design achieves elegant simplicity, with clean lines and user-friendly instrumentation, while the functional features are camouflaged to focus the attention on the soft curvaceous surfaces of the dashboard and the central tunnel. The combination of classy and elegant colours makes the interior an exclusive sumptuous lounge for its occupants.

With the introduction of the GranLusso and GranSport trims the interior of the Quattroporte can be adapted with an emphasis on luxury or sportiness, two essential elements in the DNA of every Maserati.

The interior delivers streamlined, wraparound forms, which give the dashboard and tunnel an unprecedented feeling of lightness. The dashboard features a wide central area in a variety of exclusive woods, with its full-width wooden surface underlining the refined character of the Quattroporte and giving it the widest dashboard insert in its class.

The central dashboard is redesigned to accommodate a high resolution 8.4” screen with multi-touch function. The brand new infotainment system impresses with its stylish look and improved functionality. It is also compatible with both the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions.

The central, lower console is also redesigned and now features a rotary knob that offers extremely intuitive control of the audio volume and other functions of the infotainment system. The lid and the phone storage compartment are also redesigned and are even more user-friendly.

The upper part of the central tunnel, completely covered in wood, also confirms the prestige of the Maserati flagship; to round out the abundant use of precious woods, the front and rear door panels are finished with inserts.

The Quattroporte’s interior is focused around a driver interface that is intuitive and simple to use. The instrument cluster features a large rev counter and large speedometer, both analogue, that flank a 7” TFT display for many of the car’s operational features. The leather-finished steering wheel is electrically adjustable for both reach and height.

Many of the vehicle's settings are oriented towards the driver and are controlled with the buttons alongside the gear shifter, while other on-board settings can be set by the driver via the high resolution Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC Plus) at the centre of the dashboard. Volume and other basic functions of the infotainment system can be controlled from the rotary knob that is integrated in the lower central console.

The standard equipment includes leather seats with 8+4-way electric lumbar support and heating function for the front passenger and driver and a navigation system, while the upper dashboard and the armrests are upholstered in fine leather.

While the standard equipment is sumptuous, Maserati also provides an exceptional degree of personalisation through the newly introduced GranLusso and GranSport trims.

Each trim is combined with a vast range of materials for the customer to choose from, including fine woods, carbon fibre, premium leather, Alcantara as well as coloured stitching that contrasts with the leather colour, for areas such as the upper dashboard, doors, seats, including the headrest, and many other numerous optional choices. The Ermenegildo Zegna personalisation is now offered as standard and exclusively with the GranLusso versions.

Befitting its position as the flagship of the range, the Quattroporte GTS is exclusively available with either the GranLusso or GranSport trim and has been treated to a special interior upgrade featuring full premium fine grain leather as standard on the GranSport trim and the classic Maserati analogue clock with red pointers and embedded GTS badge.

The rear lounge

The leather seats are comfortable, supportive and luxurious. In the rear, the roomy, comfortable three-seat bench has excellent legroom.

To highlight the attention paid to outstanding comfort and prestige, two individual seats are also available as an exclusive option on GranLusso versions, featuring ventilation and electrical movement, to offer unbeatable relaxation during long working trips. They can also be fitted with individual entertainment screens. The rear armrest has a USB socket for charging mobile devices and two foldaway cup holders. Finally, the seats are equipped with ISOFIX fittings, the universal child seat mounting system.

Interior Lighting

The interiors of the Quattroporte not only feature unique styling and valuable materials, but also use light to further enhance the look of the interior and the quality of the occupants' experience when driving in the dark. The system uses an optical fibre running along the dashboard and the doors and even in the door handle cavities and door pockets, to give the interior a modern, classy look.

The Quattroporte MY17 has a newly designed dome console with improved ergonomics: it now includes the boot lid button - that was previously on the driver’s door panel – and a parking sensor control switch on the right of the sunroof controls, in the dome lamp area.

The front and rear ceiling lights mount a diffused lighting lamp and two separate reading lights; along with these, two LEDs concealed in the ceiling light give constant, soft light for the area beneath them; even the foot area is illuminated. The brightness of the light can be adjusted with a dimmer on the left of the steering wheel.  ?

Space and ergonomics

One objective was clear right from the start: to maximise the space available to occupants with special attention on the rear passengers.

Two individual rear seats are also available as an exclusive option with the GranLusso trim to deliver outstanding comfort and prestige, and they offer unbeatable relaxation by featuring ventilation and electrical movement.

Furthermore, the interior features two front cup-holders, a redesigned box for phone storage, three 12V power sockets (one in the luggage compartment) and a very useful USB charging port in the rear armrest; a number of large compartments are available: two at the bottom of the dashboard (a climate controlled, illuminated passenger glove compartment, and another for the driver), a large front armrest, illuminated and climate controlled.

The rear seats are heated in the Quattroporte GTS and all GranLusso versions, while the rear door panels may include electric sun blinds (standard with GranLusso trim), alongside that of the rear window which is also standard in the GTS and GranLusso versions.

The rear seats are modular: they can be folded down in a 40-60% pattern, thus allowing long objects to be stored in the back and the 530-litre luggage compartment.

GranLusso featuring Ermenegildo Zegna

The interior of the GranLusso versions is further refined thanks to the exclusive and luxurious Zegna Silk Edition upholstery, the open pore Radica wood on the dashboard and the leather steering wheel with wooden insert. The trim integrates as standard additional comfort-oriented equipment like the power foot pedals, the electric rear sunblind, the four zone air conditioning, the heated rear seat and the extended keyless entry.

The Ermenegildo Zegna interior exclusively for Maserati combines fine grain leather with 100% natural fibre Zegna Mulberry Silk - patented in Trivero, Italy - used for inserts on the seats, door panels, roof lining, sunshades and the ceiling light fixture. It is available exclusively with the GranLusso trim option to create a distinctive, elegant personality.

The Ermenegildo Zegna silk, in dark grey, can be combined with three different shades of luxurious fine Italian leather for three distinctive looks:

·               Black colour fine grain leather

·               Tan colour fine grain leather

·               Red colour fine grain leather

The silk, an inherently sophisticated material, is further embellished by the hand-stitched macro-chevron weave; on the door panel the matching salt and pepper silk jersey is enhanced by an alternating rib embroidery.

As for the seating, the extra fine grain leather with contrasting, light grey stitching, is matched with a central silk insert with a micro-chevron weave of vertical rolls on the central seat and backrest area, within which the central roll, with leather tapes on the sides, features a special macro-chevron weave adding to its three-dimensional feel and technical look.

On the door panels, the central parts are covered with Zegna silk jersey and embellished by a diagonal roll pattern, with tone-on-tone decorative stitching and alternating rib embroideries. The same fabric is used to cover the car's roof lining and sunshades, the latter with grosgrain “Ermenegildo Zegna Exclusively for Maserati”brand labels on the inside. The sophisticated, luxury finish of the car interior is also epitomised by the headrests, which feature an embroidered Trident emblem and contrasting stitching.

GranSport, reflecting Maserati's racing heritage

The GranSport trim was designed to reflect the legendary racing heritage of Maserati. The interior immediately transmits a sense of passion and is instantly recognisable thanks to an array of exclusive elements: the wood trim on the dashboard is in high gloss Piano Black and the brand new Sport Steering Wheel is fitted with aluminium gearbox paddles. Stainless steel sport pedals and brand new sport seats are standard. 

The new steering wheel with sportier shape in full drilled black leather comes as standard exclusively in the GranSport versions. It offers better grip and can be ordered with carbon fibre insert, also in combination with the Interior Carbon Pack.

The new sportier shaped seats with anti-whiplash headrests come as standard exclusively in the GranSport versions. They are available in four colours – beige, black, red and tan –, 8+4 ways power adjustable and ensure better body retention in any driving situation. The new Sport seats for the front passenger and driver are heated and available with a ventilation system.  

The Interior Carbon Package is an option that adds to the sporty feeling of the Quattroporte interior and is reminiscent of an advanced, lightweight racing cockpit. It includes a sport steering wheel, gear shift paddles, interior trim and door sills in polished carbon fibre.

New Infotainment system


The restyled Quattroporte adopts a brand new Infotainment system that includes a high resolution 8.4” multi-touch screen and a user-friendly rotary control in the central console.

The central dashboard is redesigned to accommodate a high resolution 8.4” screen with multi-touch function. The brand new infotainment system is more stylish and offers improved interaction. It is also compatible with both the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions.

By utilising the 8.4" high resolution capacitive touch screen, the user can control almost all of the Quattroporte’s on-board equipment simply and intuitively.

The system includes features like the radio and the navigator. It also has Bluetooth functionality to connect to external sources like mobile phones and Apple devices.

A new phone box contains the SD card reader, the USB socket and the Aux-in port. Using them, the user can play music, watch films or even view images. Its menus have options to configure the car's main settings and the system's various menus are always available from the icons displayed at the bottom of the screen.

The MTC Plus also controls the front seat heating and ventilation if equipped, the steering wheel heating and the operation of the optional rear window shade, as well as providing the screen for the reversing camera.

User-friendly Rotary Control

The central, lower console has also been redesigned and now features a rotary knob that offers intuitive control of audio volume and other functions of the infotainment system. The lid and the smartphone box are also redesigned to be more user-friendly.

With the upper knob in “Radio” or “Media” mode, the user can adjust the volume or the tracks being played. The control also allows the user to adjust the beeping sound of the park assist system.

With the bottom knob in “Radio” or “Media” mode, the user can scroll through the radio stations available or stored in any connected external device and press “Enter” to make a selection. In any other mode of the MTC Plus, the bottom knob is used to scroll through the list of available options, followed by “enter”.

Siri Smart Personal Assistant

The Apple intelligent personal assistant based on Bluetooth technology allows users to perform iOS connected device tasks and make requests using voice commands. For this in-car application and for related safety reasons, while driving, responses that contain visual information or require user interaction will be blocked and Siri will only respond with suitable audio feedback and voice commands. The advantage is that Siri uses natural language to understand commands.

Harman Kardon Audio Systems

The Quattroporte’s standard audio system brings on-board the Harman Kardon brand as a standard feature on all versions, giving outstanding power and sound quality, based around 10 speakers, a 12-channel 900W amplifier and a high-performance subwoofer.

Maserati also offers hi-fi enthusiasts the optional Bowers & Wilkins Premium Surround system, the ultimate in terms of car hi-fi systems. The components, the layout of the 15 speakers and the perfect configuration of the QuantumLogic™ Surround Sound are the product of extensive and very demanding sound engineering studies.

The result is a system that reproduces every subtle nuance of the sound to perfection, with unbeatable dynamic purity, for total realism and a completely new level of music enjoyment on the road.

The technical Clari-Fi function is an advanced solution for digital music and capable of restoring the artistic details lost in digitally-compressed songs. Clari-Fi scans all types of compressed audio files for lost music details, supporting MP3, AAC, Satellite Radio, Playback and Streaming Music Services, and intelligently corrects waveform deficiencies based on existing music information and audio source quality. These features, exclusive to the Bowers & Wilkins Premium Audio system, set a new benchmark in automotive audio systems.

The system has 15 speakers and a 1,280 W amplifier. It features a central 100 mm Kevlar cone for midrange sound and three 25 mm tweeters at the centre and sides of the dashboard. The front doors house a 165 mm woofer and 100 mm Kevlar cone midrange speaker, while the rear doors each carry a 165 mm Kevlar woofer and 25 mm tweeter. The rear shelf has two 100 mm Kevlar midranges and a 315x200 mm subwoofer.

Wi-Fi Hotspot

The Quattroporte can contain optional WLAN technology that effectively turns the car into a Wi-Fi Hotspot. Owners can place a SIM card into its WLAN router to receive Internet signals, which can be resent around the car as a wireless Internet signal. Up to three devices, such as laptops, cellular phones or tablets, can be connected simultaneously. The system supports HSDPA, UMTS, EDGE and GSM.

Rear Seat Entertainment

With the option of the Rear Seat Entertainment unit, the Quattroporte will feature two 10.2” LCD displays and rear seat occupants can either view the same content simultaneously, individually or watch completely different content. The system allows users to reproduce audio, video or photographs from external sources and it can deliver them in formats ranging from MPEG, WMV, Avid, MP3, MP4, WMA and AAC.

It also has an A/V-IN connection for devices like video game consoles, cameras, video cameras and laptops. In addition, it can be equipped with a television tuner in the majority of the European countries and in China. Each monitor comes with individual battery-powered remote and highly refined wireless headphones.

Climate control with Air Sensor

All Quattroporte are now equipped with Air Quality Sensor, a feature that substantially improves the comfort levels of occupants on-board. The system combines an intelligent sensor and a signal analysis system that calculates the external pollution levels and prevents polluted air and toxic gases from entering the cabin.

The automatic climate control operates on a dual-zone system and delivers huge amounts of air through 13 ventilation ports. Four of its ventilation ports are in the rear of the car and it balances its output through a sunlight sensor to provide outstanding levels of comfort and the seamless maintenance of the chosen temperature.

There are separate temperature adjustment functions for the driver and the passenger, which can be controlled through the Maserati Touch Control Plus or via a physical control panel under the screen.

This power is driven by a variable-displacement compressor that is electronically controlled to ensure that its operation perfectly matches the demands of the car’s occupants. A wide array of sensors provides the system with the necessary information to maintain its internal environment. A humidity sensor is also included in the system. It governs the flow from the defrosting and demisting ports and the sunlight sensor that regulates the temperature of the air from the ports that cancel the effects of sunlight and outside temperature.

A four-zone climate control system is available as standard on the GranLusso versions. It improves comfort for the rear passengers containing a dedicated nebuliser and two additional ports on the b-pillars to increase airflow to the rear of the car. It also delivers a separate temperature control unit for the rear passengers.

Keyless Entry

Incorporating “Keyless Go” technology, the body of the Quattroporte’s key is made from polished aluminium and looks and feels heavy, elegant and confidently technical. When the car is locked, it is enough to keep the key in a pocket or a handbag and simply open the car by pulling on the door handle or luggage compartment button. An extended keyless entry function is available as standard on the GranLusso versions.

Power Boot Lid with Hands-free Mode

With the introduction of the Power Boot lid - which is standard on the Quattroporte GTS - the light-weight aluminium boot lid is now autonomous in its closing phase. With its electric actuators and a motorised latch, the system allows you to open or close the boot automatically, ensuring that the lid is locked upon closing.

In addition, it is possible to open and close the Power Boot Lid by simply moving your foot under the rear bumper. In this case and for safety reasons, the lid will open or close only if the “Passive Entry” system acknowledges the presence of the key.

Double laminated windscreens

The Quattroporte is also designed to be comfortable as well as safe and technically superb.

The windscreen and the rear window are both made from double laminated acoustic glass. As 51% of a car’s external noise enters the cabin through the windscreen, the use of acoustic glass has enabled Maserati to make the cabin more comfortable and focus on delivering the type of noise Maserati owners prefer.

The side windows employ similar technology with single-layer lamination and acoustic damping. All this adds up to reduced external noise and excellent temperature stability, along with more robust windows, all of which increases the occupants' comfort and safety. In addition, all three rear windows can be fitted with darkened glass for greater privacy.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go function

The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with integrated Stop&Go function further increases comfort and safety when driving on main roads and motorways. The ACC allows the driver to keep cruise control engaged without having to constantly reset the system when approaching slower moving vehicles.

When activated, ACC constantly monitors the space between the Quattroporte and the vehicle ahead, maintaining a safe pre-set distance. If the traffic slows or another vehicle moves in front, it slows the car down by making it coast or by engaging the brakes. Conversely, when the vehicle ahead speeds up or moves into another lane, the system accelerates up to the pre-set speed.

The ACC uses a radar sensor, located on the front grille, and a front-looking camera behind the internal rear-view mirror to detect the presence of a vehicle ahead. If the ACC is automatically braking, the stoplights go on as if the driver is braking.

Thanks to the integrated Stop&Go function, the car will adjust to the target vehicle’s speed until it comes to a complete stop and will depart automatically within 2 seconds.

Lane Departure Warning

The Lane Departure Warning (LDW) has been designed specifically for motorway driving in order to reduce the risk of the vehicle accidentally departing from its current lane.

If the vehicle unintentionally crosses the lane markers, graphic instructions on the instrument panel together with an acoustic chime warn the driver that the vehicle is veering out of its lane. When the indicators are activated no warning is given.

The system uses a front looking camera in the interior rear-view mirror. The LDW can be de-activated from the Maserati Touch Control Plus and is reactivated automatically every time the engine restarts. The system works only at speeds over 70 km/h.

Forward Collision Warning

The Forward Collision Warning (FCW) monitors vehicles ahead by means of a camera and warns the driver via visual and audible alerts if there is the danger of a possible rear-end collision.

If the driver brakes and the system determines that the driver has not applied sufficient brake force, the Advanced Brake Assist will compensate for this and provide the appropriate amount of additional braking.

Automated Emergency Braking

AEB is an active system that provides braking support when collision is imminent. The system is designed to avoid collisions or to reduce collision energy.

A potential collision is identified by the Adaptive Cruise Control radar and a forward looking camera. The driver is provided with visual and audible alerts as an early warning to start braking. If the driver does not take action, the system will autonomously brake to help slow the vehicle down and minimise the impact.

Blind Spot Alert & Rear Cross Path

The Blind Spot Alert uses visual and audible signals to alert the driver when a vehicle enters the blind spot zones; this important safety feature has been introduced to avoid unwanted collisions when the driver changes lane. This system, conceived to reduce the risks involved in changing lane, monitors the blind spot areas using two radar-based sensors located inside the rear bumper fascia; when a vehicle approaches from behind, the LED warning signal embedded in the side mirrors lights up while a chime alert also sounds.

The area beside and behind the car is monitored at speeds above 10 km/h in order to avoid unwanted collisions with other vehicles on the road.

The Rear Cross Path function issues the same alerts when backing out of a parking space; this feature is intended to help drivers back out of parking spaces where their view of oncoming vehicles may be blocked. Using sensors located on either side of the rear bumper, it detects any vehicles or objects that are moving at the side of the vehicle between a minimum speed of approximately 1 to 3 km/h and a maximum speed of approximately 16 km/h, such as in a parking lot.

New Rear View Camera

A next-generation rear view camera is available on all Quattroporte. It is located above the number plate. It turns on automatically when the reverse gear is selected and shows the area behind the car on the new high resolution head unit display. The camera utilizes the rear parking sensors to both visually and acoustically alert the driver about potential objects or obstructions. 

The Dynamic reference lines provide a clear orientation system when parking or during tight manoeuvres. Dynamic grid lines represent the maximum width of the car and the projected path based on the steering angle signal.

Surround View Camera

A new Surround View Camera system is available as an option in the new Quattroporte, always in combination with the new Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. It uses four cameras in total - two lateral cameras housed underneath the side mirrors, one camera in the front and one in the rear - and provides a clear 360° view around the car in a top-down image in the new high resolution display.

It is activated automatically in reverse gear or manually via the soft button on the 8.4” display and provides different selectable views: front, front cross (180°), rear, rear cross and top view. It also shows open doors and parking guidelines.


A range of high performance V6 & V8 engines

·       Petrol V6 & V8 designed and manufactured by Ferrari

·       3.0 V6 twin-turbo GDI petrol engine with 410 hp & 350 hp

·       0-100 in 4.7” and 310 km/h top speed for the GTS

·       6.2 litres/100 km for the 275 hp diesel version

·       Euro 6 homologation for all engines

In 2013 Maserati launched today's Quattroporte: the sixth-generation model delivered a leap forward that not only set the high-technology tone for Maserati’s upcoming new-model strategy, but also remained faithful to Maserati’s long history. The flagship of the Maserati product range is larger, lighter, more luxurious and more practical than its globally acclaimed predecessor.

Powerful engines and a large cabin are at the core of the Quattroporte’s design. With all of its technology, the Quattroporte remains true to Maserati’s roots. The Quattroporte GTS, the Quattroporte S and Quattroporte are powered by high-performance engines of extremely sophisticated architecture.

The engine range, which was updated in 2016, is Euro 6 homologated and offers up to a 12% reduction in emissions and consumption, while its performance versus the previous Euro 5 engines is unchanged.

The petrol engines, all with direct injection, benefit from the introduction of the Start&Stop system. The family of Maserati petrol engines boasts a 3.8-litre V8 (Quattroporte GTS) and a 3.0-litre V6 (Quattroporte S, SQ4 and Quattroporte), both of which are Twin Turbo charged, developed by Maserati Powertrain in partnership with Ferrari Powertrain and built by Ferrari in its world-leading high-performance engine construction facility in Maranello.

The engine of the Quattroporte GTS, the flagship of the range, provides Maserati’s new performance benchmark, reaching 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds and achieving a 310 km/h top speed. The Quattroporte S engine doesn’t lack for performance either, reaching 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds and achieving a 286 km/h top speed. Both the Quattroporte GTS and the Quattroporte S have a rear-wheel drive configuration.

The GTS model is not only the fastest but also the most powerful four-door Maserati ever built, and also boasts the best consumption-performance ratio.

The Quattroporte S is available with Maserati’s first ever AWD system. The sophisticated Maserati Q4 system has been designed to enhance the high-performance, grand touring qualities of the Quattroporte, and offer absolute safety and genuine all-weather capability, whatever the road conditions. The Quattroporte SQ4 accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds.

The 3.0-litre Twin Turbo V6 is now available in specific markets with 350 hp, 20 hp more than in the previous version. The V6 of the Quattroporte delivers a powerful drive with a torque of 500 Nm between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm with 90% of the maximum torque already available at just 1,600 rpm. The latest addition to the Quattroporte range retains its sporty Maserati character with an acceleration of 5.5 seconds from zero to 100 km/h and a top speed of 270 km/h.

In the best Maserati tradition, the sound and performance of the Quattroporte's exhaust system is controlled by pneumatic valves in the pipes of each bank, and passes through the unique Maserati Sound Tank to maintain the rich aural tradition of the brand.

In “Normal” default mode, the bypass valves are closed up to 3,000 rpm to produce a comfortable and discreet engine sound. In “sport” mode not only does the car adjust to a variety of handling parameters but the exhaust valves are also opened, offering the shortest possible, high-energy route for the exhaust gases, which gives the Quattroporte its maximum engine performance and unique Maserati engine sound.

The Quattroporte is available with a 3.0-litre V6 Turbodiesel engine, now Euro 6 homologated and inclusive of Ad Blue technology. This powerful unit is specifically developed by VM Motori according to Maserati’s requirements in terms of performance, efficiency and driving satisfaction.

The Quattroporte Diesel delivers 600 Nm of torque and a maximum power of 275 hp (a 250 hp variant is available for the Italian market only). The engine accelerates the Quattroporte from 0-100 km/h in 6.4 seconds up to a maximum speed of 252 km/h.


Quattroporte GTS - 530 hp V8 Twin Turbo

The flagship 3.8-litre V8 engine is the perfect representation of Maserati’s performance tradition. It is a Euro 6 homologated engine combined with a 12% reduction in emissions and consumption versus the previous Euro 5 engine, thanks in part to the Start&Stop system.

The engine produces 390 kW (530 hp) of power at 6,800 rpm and 650 Nm of torque from 2,000 rpm to 4,000 rpm. This maximum normal torque figure can be automatically over-boosted to 710 Nm from 2,250 rpm to 3,500 rpm.

These engine figures help the Quattroporte to reach 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds, making it the fastest accelerating four-door car in Maserati’s history.

Another record held by the Quattroporte is its top speed, well above the 300 km/h barrier at 310 km/h and second only to the mighty MC12 with V12 engine.

This engine has been specifically designed to deliver exceptional performance at all engine speeds, combined with lower consumption and emissions. The engine diagrams show that the V8 engine’s torque is very high even at speeds as low as 1,500 rpm.

It uses high-tumble cylinder heads and four-phase variators in a concept refined by Maserati Powertrain for optimal combustion control to deliver high performance and low consumption.

The V8 engine is boosted by two small parallel twin-scroll turbines - one for each bank of four cylinders - which provide the high performance expected of a Maserati engine while reducing inertia. Maserati Powertrain focused on integrating the turbine housing into the exhaust manifold for a compact, lightweight solution. Each turbocharger is fed by its own air-to-air intercooler. The Quattroporte has two intercoolers, each mounted low and wide of the main radiators to catch a constant supply of fresh, cool air.

The engine also operates in both “Normal” and “Sport” modes, and there are manual versions of both modes, operated by elongated shift paddles fixed to the steering column. The Quattroporte also introduces the I.C.E. (Increased Control & Efficiency) strategy, a function aimed at reducing consumption, emissions and noise.

It is a user-select strategy and delivers a softer throttle pedal response for smooth driving, cancels the turbocharger’s over-boost function and keeps the exhaust’s “sport” flaps closed until 5,000 rpm. It also adjusts the gearshifts to make them softer and slower and reduces torque at each gear’s take-up point.

Besides delivering the Quattroporte’s peak fuel efficiency figure, the I.C.E. mode is also very useful for driving on low-grip surfaces.

Quattroporte S - 410hp V6 Twin Turbo

The Quattroporte’s V6 Twin Turbo engine bears a close resemblance to the V8, sharing most of its core components as well as Euro 6 homologation. With 302 kW (410 hp) of power at 5,500 rpm, the V6 Twin Turbo provides a tremendously powerful driving experience with 550 Nm of torque between 1,750 rpm and 5,000 rpm.

While it shares much with the V8 Twin Turbo, it has a character of its own, revving to a 6,000 rpm maximum speed and delivering its torque peak 500 rpm sooner. While its specific power output is slightly lower (at 137 hp per litre), its specific torque is higher than that of the V8, at 183 Nm per litre.

The AWD version of the Quattroporte S is also a lighter car than the GTS, weighing 1,860 kg, and goes from 0 to 100 km/h in a remarkable 4.9”. The RWD version accelerates to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 286 km/h.

The V6 achieves 9.6 litres/100 km on the combined cycle with 223 grams of CO2/km. Like its V8 sibling the V6, with its parallel twin-turbochargers, was developed by Maserati Powertrain in partnership with Ferrari Powertrain and is built by Ferrari in Maranello.

The V6 engine shares the V8’s bore dimensions, the same variable valve technology, and almost the same turbocharging, manifold and engine block technology.

It uses high-tumble cylinder heads and four-phase variators (double the number of a traditional V8) in a concept refined by Maserati Powertrain for optimal combustion control to deliver high performance and low consumption. With two continuous cam phasers for each cylinder head, it can advance or retard the inlet and exhaust valve timing independently in real time.

As on the V8, the engine also uses an ECU with integral high-speed processors which handle an array of functions in real time. Maserati Powertrain has also switched to on-demand ancillaries, with a variable displacement oil pump that works under electrical control for improved consumption and performance.

It also uses an innovative computer system to control the alternator, which monitors the vehicle’s electricity consumption and manages the alternator’s workload to suit.

Quattroporte - 350 hp V6 Twin Turbo

In addition to the existing portfolio of the 530 hp V8 Maserati Quattroporte GTS and the 410 hp V6 Quattroporte S and S Q4, a new entry-level Euro 6, 3.0-litre Twin Turbo V6 is available, now upgraded to 350 hp thanks to a different engine mapping.

The engine was designed by Maserati and is being manufactured by Ferrari in Maranello for exclusive use of Maserati. With 350 hp at 5,500 rpm, the Quattroporte V6 delivers a powerful drive with a torque of 500 Nm between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm. 90% of the maximum torque is already available at just 1,600 rpm.

Thanks to its 3.0-litre engine, the Quattroporte achieves the lowest ever petrol consumption in its 50-year history with just 9.1 litres/100 km as well as CO2 emissions of 212 grams/km. The latest addition to the Quattroporte range retains its sporty Maserati character accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and boasting a top speed of 270 km/h.

Quattroporte - 275 hp Turbodiesel

Maserati’s first diesel engine, a 3.0 litre V6 Turbo, has been specifically developed by VM Motori according to Maserati’s requirements in terms of performance, efficiency and driving satisfaction. The engine is Euro 6 homologated and incorporates Ad Blue technology, with its specific on-board tank placed below the rear tank.

The excellent technological characteristics of this power unit are based on a Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) with ball bearing to reduce internal friction and consequently turbo lag. Specific, high-efficiency injectors coupled with a 2,000 bar fuel injection system optimise combustion, while variable geometry intake manifolds optimise output at all engine speeds. Specific steel double thin wall exhaust manifolds with Air Gap technology maintain a higher exhaust gas temperature, energise the flow of exhaust gas and contribute to the high specific power delivered.

These features lend this Maserati the dynamic characteristics that have always distinguished all Maserati power units. The Quattroporte Turbodiesel delivers 600 Nm of torque between 2,000-2,600 rpm and maximum power of 275 hp (a 250 hp variant is available for the Italian market only) at 4,000 rpm. The engine accelerates the Quattroporte from 0-100 km/h in 6.4 seconds, up to a maximum speed of 252 km/h. With the Start&Stop system, a CO2 figure of 163 g/km and fuel consumption of 6.2 l/100 km (combined cycle), the Maserati Quattroporte is also highly efficient.

Active Sound exhaust

A thrilling exhaust sound is one of the most desirable features of any Maserati. Thanks to Active Sound technology, the Quattroporte Diesel exhaust system produces a characteristic Maserati sound that underlines the sporty nature of the car and can be varied at the touch of a button.

Two sound actuators, fitted near the exhaust tailpipes, accentuate the engine’s most distinctive tones and modulate them according to the way the car is being driven. When the driver presses the “sport” button on the central tunnel, the sound becomes even more resonant and utterly inspiring for a diesel engine - reminiscent of that of a V8 petrol engine. Just the soundtrack you would expect from a Maserati.

8-speed automatic & Q4 AWD

  • ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox
  • Intelligent Q4 AWD system
  • Mechanical rear limited-slip differential as standard

All versions of the Quattroporte are fitted with ZF AT8 - HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission that ensures improved comfort, faster gear shifting, optimised fuel consumption and reduced Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH).

By delivering two over-driven gears, the transmission alone contributes a lot to overall efficiency. As befitting the Maserati tradition, it can be set to five dedicated shift modes: “Auto Normal”, “Auto Sport”, “Manual Normal”, “Manual Sport” and the I.C.E. mode. All gearshift modes can be selected via buttons on the left of the gear knob.

“Auto Normal” is the Quattroporte’s default setting and performs its gear changes with fluid shifts at low engine speeds to emphasize the car’s comfort and to minimize fuel consumption.

The “Auto Sport” mode sees the transmission switch the drive character to change gears with greater alacrity at higher engine speeds and delivers a distinct gear engagement to enhance the powertrain’s sporty feel.

In both of these modes, the car recognizes a variety of conditions, such as whether it is travelling up or downhill, is braking hard or is driving through a corner, and selects the best gear and the best gear-shift style accordingly.

The transmission can also be controlled manually by selecting the “M” button on the transmission tunnel. In “Manual Normal” mode, the driver can change gear with either the elongated gearshift paddles besides the steering column or by using the gear lever. The driver is in charge of gear selection although the system will intervene and change to a lower gear if the engine revs drop too low or a higher gear if the engine revs climb too high.

In “Manual Sport” mode gearshifts are at their fastest and crispest, giving the driver full control of the powertrain. The system will not intervene, even if the driver strikes the engine’s rev limiter. It will only intervene if the engine’s revs drop too low to be effective in a given gear.

The I.C.E. (Increased Control & Efficiency) mode is designed for remarkable fuel economy and relaxed driving, and performs ideally in low grip conditions. The transmission changes gear as softly as possible, both going up through the gears and returning back down.

The Quattroporte utilises a mechanical limited-slip rear differential as well. The bevel-drive, asymmetric unit offers 35% lock-up under power and 45% under release.

Quattroporte SQ4: All-Wheel Drive the Maserati way

The sophisticated Maserati Q4 system has been designed to enhance the high-performance, grand touring qualities of the Quattroporte and offer absolute safety and genuine all-weather capability, whatever the road conditions.

The Quattroporte SQ4 accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds, slightly faster than the Quattroporte S with rear-wheel drive, while maintaining almost the same fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The top speed is 286 km/h.

The intelligent Q4 All Wheel Drive system has been engineered to be compact and lightweight. It has been studied and developed to guarantee highest traction, torque, as well as comfort in all conditions, with optimised consumption.

The Q4 system has been conceived to convey a typical Maserati rear-wheel driving experience, even on low grip road conditions. The system acts by transferring traction to the front wheels on demand and with an immediate response.

In normal driving conditions the system provides 100% of the engine torque to the rear wheels, also to optimize fuel consumption and emissions. In low grip driving conditions (slippery or loose road surfaces) or in the case of a loss of grip at the rear axle (acceleration from zero or very high cornering speed), the system reacts instantaneously, transferring the necessary traction to the front wheels.

In a mere 150 milliseconds, the Q4 system is capable of altering the torque split from 100% rear wheel drive to equal distribution (50%-50%) between the front and rear wheels. When conditions require, the Q4 All Wheel Drive system, with its variable torque control, activates constantly and continuously.

While the change in torque split is imperceptible, a monitoring system is integrated in the 7” cluster display which visualises the front to rear distribution in real time. The system architecture is based on an electronically controlled multi-plate wet clutch installed into a transfer case linked by a drive shaft to the front axle.

While driving, a sophisticated algorithm specifically developed by Maserati is capable of monitoring an extensive range of dynamic vehicle parameters (wheel speed, steering and yaw angle, power output, speed, braking action, ESP) in real time, as well as wheel grip vs. driving style. Processing all this data the Q4 system can maximize a dedicated grip profile for each single wheel, creating the optimal vehicle dynamic management to suit any given road condition, at any time. This strategy has the sole objective of optimizing the balance between driving pleasure and safety.

Ultimate blend of performance and comfort

  • Extensive use of aluminium in chassis, body and suspension
  • Ideal 50:50% weight distribution
  • Double wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension
  • Electronically controlled Skyhook shock absorbers

With the longest wheelbase in the class at its core, the Quattroporte’s architecture lends itself both to extreme interior comfort and an exciting handling platform. Despite its increased size, the latest Quattroporte is considerably lighter than the previous generation, weighing 1,900 kg - 94 kg less than the flagship predecessor in V8 form. The V6 Quattroporte weighs 1,860 kg - 40 kg less than the V8 version.

Based around a rigid and extremely secure steel safety cell, it uses an array of different steel and aluminium alloys, each designated a precise task to maximize strength, minimize weight and retain the sports saloon’s perfect weight distribution.

The front of the chassis is based around an aluminium casting, with a reinforced cross-strut which helps deliver outstanding rigidity in all directions, while the rear of the chassis is made from rolled steel.

The choice of aluminium for the bulk of the Quattroporte’s body panels was based around the delivery of maximum possible occupant safety for the lowest possible weight. Accordingly, all four doors, the bonnet, the front quarter panels and the boot lid are all made from aluminium.

Other exotic materials are also used in the Quattroporte’s body including ultra-light weight magnesium in the dashboard’s cross strut.

Another critical factor is weight distribution and the Quattroporte retains the ideal balance with 50:50 front-to-rear weight. This is despite the forward repositioning of the fuel tank to create greater luggage space and the addition of All Wheel Drive, bigger radiators and two intercoolers beneath the bonnet.

Standard Skyhook Suspension

Double wishbone suspension layouts are a race-bred tradition at Maserati and the Quattroporte continued with this heritage also incorporating some new technologies for greater accuracy.

The front suspension uses high-mounted all-aluminium double wishbones to guarantee light and precise handling characteristics.

Aluminium is the dominant metal of the front suspension system with the dome nuts, the hub carrier bars and uprights all made from forged aluminium, while the springs are made from steel. This matches up to constantly adaptive Skyhook dampers and an anti-roll bar.

The geometry of the system has delivered a quadrilateral architecture, which has enabled Maserati’s handling team to deliver steering that is precise, communicative and comfortable.

The rear suspension employs a five-bar multi-link system, with four aluminium suspension arms, and has achieved the conflicting targets of executive ride comfort and extreme sports performance.

The suspension package also uses anti-roll bars and steel springs damped by a faster and more accurate development of the Skyhook adaptive damping system. All four Skyhook dampers can be electronically controlled independently of each other.

One of the standout features of the Quattroporte is the standard Skyhook system with electronically controlled dampers. Skyhook prioritizes comfort and then becomes more sporty and athletic if the driver presses the suspension button, which is separated from the “sport” button. This extra stiffness transforms the Quattroporte’s handling and was developed in both extreme test scenarios and on the race track. Essentially, it drastically reduces both longitudinal and lateral load transfers and minimizes body roll to bring out the sportier side of the Quattroporte’s character.

Brakes

Maserati has continued its long association with Brembo on the Quattroporte and most models feature fixed-caliper braking technology.

The Quattroporte 350 hp, Diesel and S feature four-piston brakes with fixed alloy Brembo calipers and 345x28 mm ventilated discs in the front; floating calipers by Continental with 330x22 mm ventilated discs in the rear.

The brakes on the Quattroporte S Q4 model are 360x32 mm ventilated and cross-drilled Dual Cast type with six-piston fixed alloy Brembo calipers on the front axle, while the rear axle is fitted with four-piston fixed alloy Brembo calipers with self-ventilating perforated discs of 345x28 mm.

The front axle of the Quattroporte GTS has 380x34 mm ventilated and cross-drilled Dual Cast brake discs and six-piston fixed alloy Brembo calipers with the same brake system as the S Q4 version on the rear axle.

The brake discs continue to be Dual Cast, a technology pioneered by Maserati which allows the weight of the cast-iron braking surface area to be offset with an alloy hat to minimise unsprung mass.

These brakes have an enlarged swept area, highly efficient cooling, are designed for consistent performance in sporty driving situations and are oversized for the demands created by even the Quattroporte’s extremely high performance potential.

But high-performance stopping power is only one measure of overall braking performance and the collaboration with Brembo also concentrated on evolving the acoustic comfort of the Quattroporte’s braking systems. As befitting the rest of the Quattroporte story, the braking development reconciled the seemingly opposing goals of pure performance and pure comfort.

The brakes also operate as part of the Quattroporte’s automatic hill start system. The on-board sensors detect the vehicle's tilt when parked facing uphill, then lock the brakes for a few seconds; this gives the driver’s foot time to move from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal without the vehicle rolling back.

New Electronic Parking Brake


A new Electronic Parking Brake has been adopted on the braking system of the MY17 Quattroporte. Thanks to its state-of-the-art technology the new EPB offers improved performance and reliability. On the braking system with rear floating calipers, a new Motor On Caliper (MOC) is fitted on the rear caliper, which is now provided by Continental, while the disc diameter is slightly increased from 320 mm to 330 mm.

On the braking systems with dual cast discs adopted by the Quattroporte SQ4 and GTS, an additional EPB caliper is fitted on the rear brake discs. 

Hydraulic Steering

The Quattroporte uses a technological aluminium steering box, developed specifically for the high-performance front-suspension geometry.

This has allowed Maserati’s suspension engineers to deliver ultimate precision combined with the steering sensitivity needed for turning into corners at speed.

It also has a reduced steering ratio, which delivers an agility that is rare for this class and while it is comfortable in all situations, the steering feel is geared up towards driving enjoyment.

Eschewing the trend for electro-hydraulic steering systems, the Quattroporte employs a servo-powered hydraulic system that prevents unpleasantly artificial assistance when the driver turns the wheel quickly. The power assistance has also been reduced compared to the superseded Quattroporte, the intention being to deliver more feedback to the driver for consistency at high speed while ensuring easy manoeuvring at low speed.

Active and Passive safety

•   Maserati Stability Program

•   Passive Safety Systems

 

Maserati Stability Program

Maserati drivers have long been aware of the benefits of the Maserati Stability Program (MSP) and the system has evolved and improved in the Quattroporte. Developed in the most extreme test circumstances, the MSP uses a wide array of sensors to detect any need to intervene on the driver’s behalf. MSP adds a layer of security on top of the Quattroporte’s inherent chassis stability that helps drivers enjoy anxiety-free handling in all driving conditions.

MSP constantly measures the Quattroporte’s handling and grip and combines a host of safety and performance systems to maintain the car’s ideal handling stance.

Two of the main elements of the MSP are the engine and the brakes. If skidding is detected, the MSP reduces the engine’s torque output and can activate the brakes with finely varied inputs to restore the car’s stability within milliseconds.

The other key systems that make up MSP include:

•    ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)

•    Anti Slip Regulation (ASR)

•    Motor Spin Regulator (MSR) that prevents wheels from locking up when downshifting on low-grip surfaces.

•    Brake Assist System (BAS), which recognises emergency braking situations and increases the pressure in the braking circuit.

•    Hill Holder, which automatically connects to the braking system to prevent roll back

Passive Safety Systems

The Quattroporte’s passive safety equipment has been given a tightly focussed overhaul to successfully improve its crash safety without compromising its weight or fuel consumption.

Maserati has balanced these conflicting demands by using hot-formed steels in critical areas of the passenger compartment for added occupant safety, while using aluminium in other areas to save weight.

In particular, the front of the passenger compartment (the pillars and under-door mouldings) features hot-moulded steel components, with a magnesium dashboard strut to save weight, while the rear is stiffened with high-strength steel. The crash bars at the front and rear of the car are made of extruded aluminium, while the doors, engine compartment, mudguards and luggage compartment are in aluminium.

Airbag system

The Quattroporte is equipped with a six-airbag system to provide maximum occupant safety. At the front, two-stage airbags are concealed from occupants inside the steering wheel and dashboard and protect the head in frontal accidents. The chest and hips of the front occupants are further protected by the side airbags beneath the seat leather. The sides of the occupants’ heads are protected by two head “curtain” bags mounted in the roof of the car, next to the B-pillar. The “curtain” bag protects the heads of the front and rear occupants against lateral impact.

Seat belts and restraint systems

The front seats are brimming with safety equipment designed to reduce trauma to the occupant's cervical vertebrae. If the car is involved in a rear-end accident, its active headrests automatically reduce the distance between their surface and the passenger's head.

The front and rear three-point seatbelts are equipped with load-limiting pyrotechnic pre-tensioners, which trip in a collision to hold the passengers securely and prevent or minimise injury.

The front seatbelts are fitted with height adjusters which properly adjust the height of the seatbelts to the occupant's height, improving comfort as well as the safety of the device.

Quattroporte development & testing

The Maserati Quattroporte is built to the latest quality standards, at the very top of the industry, at the Avvocato Giovanni Agnelli Plant of Grugliasco, near Turin.

The Quattroporte plant guarantees outstanding quality and meticulous control of even the tiniest details, combining state-of-the-art technologies and production processes - including latest generation robots - with Maserati’s tradition of craftsmanship.

Every single Quattroporte is subject to a quality assurance test when it emerges from the production line.

A long and rigorous program of reliability tests was included in the testing programme during the model’s development:

  • More than 6,000,000 test kilometres.
  • A fleet of more than 90 Quattroporte units.
  • Hundreds of thousands of additional validation test kilometres.
  • Every single component tested for endurance, quality & noise.
  • Testing in extreme heat in South Africa and Morocco.
  • Testing in extreme cold in Sweden and New Zealand.
  • Severe process control, including four in ‘Body-in-White’,
  • Three in painting, and
  • Four in the assembly process.
  • Additional electronics, dynamometer and water testing.
  • More than 700 control checks for each car in production.
  • Final 30-minute quality audit before delivery to the customer.
  • On-road 40 km test before delivery to the customer.

For the development of the MY17 Quattroporte a total of 840,000 test kilometres were covered in the hinterland of Turin. New GranSport and carbon contents were thoroughly tested in extreme hot and cold conditions, from Sicily to the Italian Alps.

The New Quattroporte. By Maserati

After three and a half years of unprecedented success in the international markets, the Quattroporte has undergone a substantial restyling that accentuates its elegance without altering its signature Maserati personality.

The restyled Quattroporte, representing the quintessence of Italian sport saloons, will be available from June 2016 and is destined to continue a success story that started in 2013. Since its initial launch, the iconic Maserati flagship model has been delivered to over 24,000 customers in 72 countries.

The exterior of the restyled Quattroporte is recognisable with a new bumper design with matte black profile at the front and the matte black extractor at the rear. The front grille, a typical Maserati feature, evolves into a new Alfieri-inspired shape that has already featured on the Levante. It is more pointed and imposing, and it introduces new vertical chrome elements that contrast with the deepness of the shark nose effect. Other distinguishing details of the  New Quattroporte are the matte black side skirts and the exterior mirrors, which have been slightly restyled to incorporate new technical elements.

An electrically adjustable Air Shutter has also been fitted in the front grille between the air vents and the engine’s radiator. The Air Shutter provides optimal control of the engine’s fluid temperature and, together with the optimization of the new front and rear bumpers, air conveyor and flat bottom, improves the aerodynamic drag of the car by 10%, contributing also in fuel consumption reduction of about 3% while driving on the highway.

The improvements to the interior were introduced to enhance the purity of the model by underlining only the functional parts. This takes place through the clean integration of the new interface elements with the infotainment area and tunnel console.

Specifically, the redesigned central dashboard now accommodates a capacitive high resolution 8.4” screen with multi touch function.


This area is now characterized by a continuous technical element that integrates the screen, new climate control and new drawer in a single seamless design, emphasizing the pure volume composition typical of the Quattroporte.

The central lower console has also been redesigned and now features a rotary knob for volume and function control, a new lid and phone storage compartment.  The stylistic approach to these functional elements permits a minimalist design approach for the centre of the dashboard.

The new infotainment system is compatible with both the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions.

All Quattroporte are now equipped with an Air Quality Sensor, a feature that substantially improves comfort levels for the occupants on-board. This system combines an intelligent sensor and a signal analysis system that calculates the external pollution levels and prevents polluted air and toxic gases from entering the cabin.

A new package of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems is available as an option in the new Quattroporte. It includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning with Advanced Brake Assist and Automated Emergency Braking. An additional new Surround View Camera is available as an option in combination with the Driver Assistance package.

GranLusso and GranSport, two distinct new worlds

Since its beginnings Maserati has represented the perfect blend of luxury and sportiness thanks to its race-bred engineering. 

With the restyling of the flagship Quattroporte, Maserati launches a new range strategy to offer its highly demanding clientele the additional choice of two unique trim options that emphasize the two key pillars of the brand’s DNA: GranLusso and GranSport 

The two highly distinctive trims are available as an upgrade for all Quattroporte V6 powertrain versions (Quattroporte diesel, Quattroporte, Quattroporte S, Quattroporte S Q4). Both trims will be priced at the same level across the range.


The top of the range version, the Quattroporte GTS, which features the twin-turbo V8, will be available exclusively with either the GranLusso or GranSport trims as part of the standard equipment.

Each trim level was conceived to meet the needs of customers that seek a distinctive and unique product in the executive saloon segment.

GranLusso and GranSport are immediately recognisable thanks to their distinct exterior design and unique interiors.

GranLusso trim

The GranLusso trim reinterprets the concept of luxury in a race-bred engineered luxury saloon by enhancing the exterior finish and improving in-cabin comfort for both driver and passengers.

It offers a higher level of luxury using exclusive materials and special features in the finest tradition of Italian craftsmanship.

GranLusso is distinctive for a new front lower fascia design with an elegant floating bridge element and a delicate spoiler, detailed by the chrome bumper finish and the body colour bumper profiles. The profile incorporates side skirts, while on the rear the look is even cleaner, characterized by a sculptured retroreflector and a body coloured spoiler; the exterior look is completed by 20” Mercurio rims and black painted brake calipers.

In the cabin the soul of the GranLusso is epitomised by the Ermenegildo Zegna Edition interior that features a patented silk fabric, unique in the industry, on the seats, doors, headliner and sun visors; the seat tailoring details and the label behind the sun visors make this version unique and exclusive.

The cabin ambience is further refined thanks to the exclusive open pore Radica wood on the dashboard and the leather steering wheel with wooden inserts. The trim integrates comfort-oriented equipment like the power foot pedals, the electric rear sunblind, the four-zone air conditioning, the heated rear seat and the extended keyless entry.

 

GranSport trim

The GranSport trim underscores the sporty character of the Quattroporte while enhancing the aggressive appearance of the car.  Thanks to new exterior design cues and interior contents that reflect the legendary racing heritage of the Maserati brand.

On the front of the Quattroporte GranSport, the dedicated restyling for the centre and side air intakes improves the cooling function while showcasing an aggressive front area. The lower fascia is linked to the grille with aerodynamic inspired splits. The back is characterized by an evident composition between a centre fuselage and two side pockets that focus the attention on the exhausts. An aggressive black piano spoiler completes the rear view.

The Quattroporte GranSport is fitted with 21” Titano rims and features a glossy black finish on the bumpers, red brake calipers and blue inserts in the front Trident and side Saetta logo as well as blue Tridents on the wheel centres. As an option, the front grille of the GranSport can be ordered in a glossy black finish.

The Interiors of the Quattroporte GranSport includes redesigned front and rear seats, with their sculptured profiles, to improve sporty driving performances while a new sport steering wheel, in carbon fibre or full leather, creates a strong identity.

Thanks to the high gloss Piano Black wood trim on the dashboard, the brand new sport seats, the sport steering wheel fitted with aluminium gearbox paddles and the stainless steel sport pedals, the interior of the Quattroporte GranSport guarantees a truly sporty experience.

A further opportunity for customization is available in the form of the optional Exterior Carbon Pack for the GranSport trim, to further enhance the sporty exterior. This pack features external mirrors, door handles and b-pillar cover plus the profile of the front bumper in carbon fibre.

New Quattroporte: elegant expression of distinctive styles

A classic example of genuine Italian design, the New Quattroporte adopts a restyling that accentuates its signature Maserati personality.

The best Italian designers have been involved in developing the Quattroporte design language during the 53-year history of the model.

In 1963, the first Quattroporte blended the qualities of speed, style and luxury in a sleek body designed by Pietro Frua. Maserati has been considered a master of sports saloon design ever since.

The second-generation version in 1974 was designed by Bertone, while Giorgetto Giugiaro designed the highly successful 1979 Quattroporte; Marcello Gandini redefined the model with his compact 1994 Quattroporte and Pininfarina’s 2003 Quattroporte set the design standard for the segment for almost a decade.

The uniquely rich design heritage of the previous Quattroporte generations was amalgamated in the current model. A large cabin with an attractive shape featuring extremely dynamic lines and Italian elegance are at the core of the latest Quattroporte design. The long, dominant and powerful nose is sculpted around the new grille, a core feature of the Maserati identity that evolves into a new Alfieri-inspired shape that has already featured on Levante. It is more pointed and imposing, and it introduces new vertical chrome elements that contrast with the deepness of the shark nose effect.

More than three years after its presentation the Quattroporte remains distinctive and exclusive, a harmonious combination of elegance and sportiness, the epitome of masculinity. Its timeless feel was fully respected by the Maserati Design Centre in Turin during the restyling process.

The exterior of the new Quattroporte is distinctive for the new bumper design that features a matte black front profile and rear extractor. Side skirts are also painted in matte black. The three-dimensional grille, a nod to the glorious past of Maserati and sensational models like the A6 GCS, is now even more enthralling thanks to the adoption of chrome vertical ribs.

Beneath the rear bumper, the V8 models can be identified by their twin, trapezoidal integrated dual pipes in chrome plated stainless steel while the V6 and Diesel models use twin oval dual exhaust pipes.

Aerodynamics

The design of the Quattroporte's body isn’t just about looks, a large part of the Quattroporte’s aerodynamic work is out of sight, beneath the car. It has a flat floor that contains several aerodynamic features including a NACA duct to help cool the differential without increasing drag and flaps on the rear suspension arms to channel airflows.

The signature Maserati grille has evolved into a functional element of active aerodynamics, adopting an electrically adjustable Air Shutter between the air vents and the engine’s radiator. The Air Shutter -recently introduced in the Levante model - provides optimal control of the engine temperature, reduces the aerodynamic drag of the car and subsequently reduces fuel consumption and emissions. Thanks to the adoption of the Air Shutter, the Cx coefficient of the Quattroporte is reduced by 10% to an exceptional 0.28.

Standard Adaptive Front-lighting System

The standard headlights contain an Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) for an outstanding view of the road.

Each headlight includes LED daytime running lights, with a light shape that is instantly recognisable in both daylight and at night. Each light also contains a high-pressure lens washer nozzle, direction indicators, LED side position lights and a side reflector.

Sensors monitor the driving style and speed and if the road is clear, the beam depth offers the greatest depth and width, combined with the directional rotation of the headlights themselves.

In addition, there are four different automatic lighting setups: for city driving, for motorway conditions, for low visibility and for driving on the opposite side of the road in applicable countries. Each of these modes automatically activates a strategy to best illuminate the road surface.

The Town Beam turns on below 45 km/h and sets the beam wider and shallower, giving a better view for turning and for peripheral danger zones while causing minimum disturbance for fellow road users. Country Beam turns on at speeds below 90 km/h and in the driving conditions typical of a normal street, sets the beam to be wider and less deep on the left side but just a little bit deeper on the right side. There is also a specific function for use in case of rain, activated when the windscreen wipers are in operation. The individual beams are set to different levels to minimise reflections, while the outer beams are set wider and higher to make the Quattroporte more visible to other road users.

The Quattroporte’s tail lights have been designed to offer maximum visibility and to create a recognisable style. These full LED lights integrate the position light function in an illuminated ring running right around the tail light itself. Inside this ring are the brake lights, the direction indicators, reverse lights and fog lights. The outside reflector and LED side position lights round off the unit.

Wheels and tyres

Featuring 19” rims as standard equipment on the Quattroporte, Quattroporte S, S Q4 and Diesel, all models can be fitted with various 20” and 21” wheels, even with forged technology.

The newly introduced GranLusso trim is available with standard 20” Mercurio wheels while the GranSport comes with the 21” Titano* wheels.

While flow-forming technology reduces the core thickness of the wheels and optimizes weight without sacrificing stiffness and strength, the forged alloy wheels emphasizes light weight.

All the Quattroporte’s rims have been designed and engineered to enhance both the visual design of the body and to lower the unsprung mass to improve grip and handling.

The 19” wheel, with its 245/45 front and 275/40 rear tyres, is geared towards reduced fuel consumption combined with low road noise and long, comfortable journeys and with a long tested compound capable of offering the sporty performance expected of it.

The 20” wheel, with a 245/40 front tyre and a 285/35 rear tyre, is the perfect compromise between sports and comfort, while the 21” wheel, with a 245/35 front and 285/30 rear tyre combination, is focused on sports handling. All three wheel sizes are available with Pirelli, Dunlop and Continental tyres. While the 19” and 20” wheels can be fitted with winter tyres, no commercially made 21” winter tyre is available.


The Quattroporte also continuously monitors its tyre pressure with a sensor mounted inside the rim, as part of the valve; the pressure can be read off the display on the dashboard. In the case of punctures or tyre pressure variation, the system notifies the driver with visual and acoustic warnings.

Refinement and individuality

The elegant interior of the Quattroporte is further refined by new hi-tech content. The addition of the GranLusso and GranSport trims to the existing base versions offers more structured possibilities for individualization with distinctive styles.

Thanks to its dimensions, the latest generation Quattroporte has set a benchmark for roominess for the front and, especially, the rear passengers. Its wheelbase has allowed Maserati to add more rear legroom and more shoulder room for all passengers.

The interior design achieves elegant simplicity, with clean lines and user-friendly instrumentation, while the functional features are camouflaged to focus the attention on the soft curvaceous surfaces of the dashboard and the central tunnel. The combination of classy and elegant colours makes the interior an exclusive sumptuous lounge for its occupants.

With the introduction of the GranLusso and GranSport trims the interior of the Quattroporte can be adapted with an emphasis on luxury or sportiness, two essential elements in the DNA of every Maserati.

The interior delivers streamlined, wraparound forms, which give the dashboard and tunnel an unprecedented feeling of lightness. The dashboard features a wide central area in a variety of exclusive woods, with its full-width wooden surface underlining the refined character of the Quattroporte and giving it the widest dashboard insert in its class.

The central dashboard is redesigned to accommodate a high resolution 8.4” screen with multi-touch function. The brand new infotainment system impresses with its stylish look and improved functionality. It is also compatible with both the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions.

The central, lower console is also redesigned and now features a rotary knob that offers extremely intuitive control of the audio volume and other functions of the infotainment system. The lid and the phone storage compartment are also redesigned and are even more user-friendly.

The upper part of the central tunnel, completely covered in wood, also confirms the prestige of the Maserati flagship; to round out the abundant use of precious woods, the front and rear door panels are finished with inserts.

The Quattroporte’s interior is focused around a driver interface that is intuitive and simple to use. The instrument cluster features a large rev counter and large speedometer, both analogue, that flank a 7” TFT display for many of the car’s operational features. The leather-finished steering wheel is electrically adjustable for both reach and height.

Many of the vehicle's settings are oriented towards the driver and are controlled with the buttons alongside the gear shifter, while other on-board settings can be set by the driver via the high resolution Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC Plus) at the centre of the dashboard. Volume and other basic functions of the infotainment system can be controlled from the rotary knob that is integrated in the lower central console.

The standard equipment includes leather seats with 8+4-way electric lumbar support and heating function for the front passenger and driver and a navigation system, while the upper dashboard and the armrests are upholstered in fine leather.

While the standard equipment is sumptuous, Maserati also provides an exceptional degree of personalisation through the newly introduced GranLusso and GranSport trims.

Each trim is combined with a vast range of materials for the customer to choose from, including fine woods, carbon fibre, premium leather, Alcantara as well as coloured stitching that contrasts with the leather colour, for areas such as the upper dashboard, doors, seats, including the headrest, and many other numerous optional choices. The Ermenegildo Zegna personalisation is now offered as standard and exclusively with the GranLusso versions.

Befitting its position as the flagship of the range, the Quattroporte GTS is exclusively available with either the GranLusso or GranSport trim and has been treated to a special interior upgrade featuring full premium fine grain leather as standard on the GranSport trim and the classic Maserati analogue clock with red pointers and embedded GTS badge.

The rear lounge

The leather seats are comfortable, supportive and luxurious. In the rear, the roomy, comfortable three-seat bench has excellent legroom.

To highlight the attention paid to outstanding comfort and prestige, two individual seats are also available as an exclusive option on GranLusso versions, featuring ventilation and electrical movement, to offer unbeatable relaxation during long working trips. They can also be fitted with individual entertainment screens. The rear armrest has a USB socket for charging mobile devices and two foldaway cup holders. Finally, the seats are equipped with ISOFIX fittings, the universal child seat mounting system.

Interior Lighting

The interiors of the Quattroporte not only feature unique styling and valuable materials, but also use light to further enhance the look of the interior and the quality of the occupants' experience when driving in the dark. The system uses an optical fibre running along the dashboard and the doors and even in the door handle cavities and door pockets, to give the interior a modern, classy look.

The Quattroporte MY17 has a newly designed dome console with improved ergonomics: it now includes the boot lid button - that was previously on the driver’s door panel – and a parking sensor control switch on the right of the sunroof controls, in the dome lamp area.

The front and rear ceiling lights mount a diffused lighting lamp and two separate reading lights; along with these, two LEDs concealed in the ceiling light give constant, soft light for the area beneath them; even the foot area is illuminated. The brightness of the light can be adjusted with a dimmer on the left of the steering wheel.  ?

Space and ergonomics

One objective was clear right from the start: to maximise the space available to occupants with special attention on the rear passengers.

Two individual rear seats are also available as an exclusive option with the GranLusso trim to deliver outstanding comfort and prestige, and they offer unbeatable relaxation by featuring ventilation and electrical movement.

Furthermore, the interior features two front cup-holders, a redesigned box for phone storage, three 12V power sockets (one in the luggage compartment) and a very useful USB charging port in the rear armrest; a number of large compartments are available: two at the bottom of the dashboard (a climate controlled, illuminated passenger glove compartment, and another for the driver), a large front armrest, illuminated and climate controlled.

The rear seats are heated in the Quattroporte GTS and all GranLusso versions, while the rear door panels may include electric sun blinds (standard with GranLusso trim), alongside that of the rear window which is also standard in the GTS and GranLusso versions.

The rear seats are modular: they can be folded down in a 40-60% pattern, thus allowing long objects to be stored in the back and the 530-litre luggage compartment.

GranLusso featuring Ermenegildo Zegna

The interior of the GranLusso versions is further refined thanks to the exclusive and luxurious Zegna Silk Edition upholstery, the open pore Radica wood on the dashboard and the leather steering wheel with wooden insert. The trim integrates as standard additional comfort-oriented equipment like the power foot pedals, the electric rear sunblind, the four zone air conditioning, the heated rear seat and the extended keyless entry.

The Ermenegildo Zegna interior exclusively for Maserati combines fine grain leather with 100% natural fibre Zegna Mulberry Silk - patented in Trivero, Italy - used for inserts on the seats, door panels, roof lining, sunshades and the ceiling light fixture. It is available exclusively with the GranLusso trim option to create a distinctive, elegant personality.

The Ermenegildo Zegna silk, in dark grey, can be combined with three different shades of luxurious fine Italian leather for three distinctive looks:

·               Black colour fine grain leather

·               Tan colour fine grain leather

·               Red colour fine grain leather

The silk, an inherently sophisticated material, is further embellished by the hand-stitched macro-chevron weave; on the door panel the matching salt and pepper silk jersey is enhanced by an alternating rib embroidery.

As for the seating, the extra fine grain leather with contrasting, light grey stitching, is matched with a central silk insert with a micro-chevron weave of vertical rolls on the central seat and backrest area, within which the central roll, with leather tapes on the sides, features a special macro-chevron weave adding to its three-dimensional feel and technical look.

On the door panels, the central parts are covered with Zegna silk jersey and embellished by a diagonal roll pattern, with tone-on-tone decorative stitching and alternating rib embroideries. The same fabric is used to cover the car's roof lining and sunshades, the latter with grosgrain “Ermenegildo Zegna Exclusively for Maserati”brand labels on the inside. The sophisticated, luxury finish of the car interior is also epitomised by the headrests, which feature an embroidered Trident emblem and contrasting stitching.

GranSport, reflecting Maserati's racing heritage

The GranSport trim was designed to reflect the legendary racing heritage of Maserati. The interior immediately transmits a sense of passion and is instantly recognisable thanks to an array of exclusive elements: the wood trim on the dashboard is in high gloss Piano Black and the brand new Sport Steering Wheel is fitted with aluminium gearbox paddles. Stainless steel sport pedals and brand new sport seats are standard. 

The new steering wheel with sportier shape in full drilled black leather comes as standard exclusively in the GranSport versions. It offers better grip and can be ordered with carbon fibre insert, also in combination with the Interior Carbon Pack.

The new sportier shaped seats with anti-whiplash headrests come as standard exclusively in the GranSport versions. They are available in four colours – beige, black, red and tan –, 8+4 ways power adjustable and ensure better body retention in any driving situation. The new Sport seats for the front passenger and driver are heated and available with a ventilation system.  

The Interior Carbon Package is an option that adds to the sporty feeling of the Quattroporte interior and is reminiscent of an advanced, lightweight racing cockpit. It includes a sport steering wheel, gear shift paddles, interior trim and door sills in polished carbon fibre.

New Infotainment system


The restyled Quattroporte adopts a brand new Infotainment system that includes a high resolution 8.4” multi-touch screen and a user-friendly rotary control in the central console.

The central dashboard is redesigned to accommodate a high resolution 8.4” screen with multi-touch function. The brand new infotainment system is more stylish and offers improved interaction. It is also compatible with both the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions.

By utilising the 8.4" high resolution capacitive touch screen, the user can control almost all of the Quattroporte’s on-board equipment simply and intuitively.

The system includes features like the radio and the navigator. It also has Bluetooth functionality to connect to external sources like mobile phones and Apple devices.

A new phone box contains the SD card reader, the USB socket and the Aux-in port. Using them, the user can play music, watch films or even view images. Its menus have options to configure the car's main settings and the system's various menus are always available from the icons displayed at the bottom of the screen.

The MTC Plus also controls the front seat heating and ventilation if equipped, the steering wheel heating and the operation of the optional rear window shade, as well as providing the screen for the reversing camera.

User-friendly Rotary Control

The central, lower console has also been redesigned and now features a rotary knob that offers intuitive control of audio volume and other functions of the infotainment system. The lid and the smartphone box are also redesigned to be more user-friendly.

With the upper knob in “Radio” or “Media” mode, the user can adjust the volume or the tracks being played. The control also allows the user to adjust the beeping sound of the park assist system.

With the bottom knob in “Radio” or “Media” mode, the user can scroll through the radio stations available or stored in any connected external device and press “Enter” to make a selection. In any other mode of the MTC Plus, the bottom knob is used to scroll through the list of available options, followed by “enter”.

Siri Smart Personal Assistant

The Apple intelligent personal assistant based on Bluetooth technology allows users to perform iOS connected device tasks and make requests using voice commands. For this in-car application and for related safety reasons, while driving, responses that contain visual information or require user interaction will be blocked and Siri will only respond with suitable audio feedback and voice commands. The advantage is that Siri uses natural language to understand commands.

Harman Kardon Audio Systems

The Quattroporte’s standard audio system brings on-board the Harman Kardon brand as a standard feature on all versions, giving outstanding power and sound quality, based around 10 speakers, a 12-channel 900W amplifier and a high-performance subwoofer.

Maserati also offers hi-fi enthusiasts the optional Bowers & Wilkins Premium Surround system, the ultimate in terms of car hi-fi systems. The components, the layout of the 15 speakers and the perfect configuration of the QuantumLogic™ Surround Sound are the product of extensive and very demanding sound engineering studies.

The result is a system that reproduces every subtle nuance of the sound to perfection, with unbeatable dynamic purity, for total realism and a completely new level of music enjoyment on the road.

The technical Clari-Fi function is an advanced solution for digital music and capable of restoring the artistic details lost in digitally-compressed songs. Clari-Fi scans all types of compressed audio files for lost music details, supporting MP3, AAC, Satellite Radio, Playback and Streaming Music Services, and intelligently corrects waveform deficiencies based on existing music information and audio source quality. These features, exclusive to the Bowers & Wilkins Premium Audio system, set a new benchmark in automotive audio systems.

The system has 15 speakers and a 1,280 W amplifier. It features a central 100 mm Kevlar cone for midrange sound and three 25 mm tweeters at the centre and sides of the dashboard. The front doors house a 165 mm woofer and 100 mm Kevlar cone midrange speaker, while the rear doors each carry a 165 mm Kevlar woofer and 25 mm tweeter. The rear shelf has two 100 mm Kevlar midranges and a 315x200 mm subwoofer.

Wi-Fi Hotspot

The Quattroporte can contain optional WLAN technology that effectively turns the car into a Wi-Fi Hotspot. Owners can place a SIM card into its WLAN router to receive Internet signals, which can be resent around the car as a wireless Internet signal. Up to three devices, such as laptops, cellular phones or tablets, can be connected simultaneously. The system supports HSDPA, UMTS, EDGE and GSM.

Rear Seat Entertainment

With the option of the Rear Seat Entertainment unit, the Quattroporte will feature two 10.2” LCD displays and rear seat occupants can either view the same content simultaneously, individually or watch completely different content. The system allows users to reproduce audio, video or photographs from external sources and it can deliver them in formats ranging from MPEG, WMV, Avid, MP3, MP4, WMA and AAC.

It also has an A/V-IN connection for devices like video game consoles, cameras, video cameras and laptops. In addition, it can be equipped with a television tuner in the majority of the European countries and in China. Each monitor comes with individual battery-powered remote and highly refined wireless headphones.

Climate control with Air Sensor

All Quattroporte are now equipped with Air Quality Sensor, a feature that substantially improves the comfort levels of occupants on-board. The system combines an intelligent sensor and a signal analysis system that calculates the external pollution levels and prevents polluted air and toxic gases from entering the cabin.

The automatic climate control operates on a dual-zone system and delivers huge amounts of air through 13 ventilation ports. Four of its ventilation ports are in the rear of the car and it balances its output through a sunlight sensor to provide outstanding levels of comfort and the seamless maintenance of the chosen temperature.

There are separate temperature adjustment functions for the driver and the passenger, which can be controlled through the Maserati Touch Control Plus or via a physical control panel under the screen.

This power is driven by a variable-displacement compressor that is electronically controlled to ensure that its operation perfectly matches the demands of the car’s occupants. A wide array of sensors provides the system with the necessary information to maintain its internal environment. A humidity sensor is also included in the system. It governs the flow from the defrosting and demisting ports and the sunlight sensor that regulates the temperature of the air from the ports that cancel the effects of sunlight and outside temperature.

A four-zone climate control system is available as standard on the GranLusso versions. It improves comfort for the rear passengers containing a dedicated nebuliser and two additional ports on the b-pillars to increase airflow to the rear of the car. It also delivers a separate temperature control unit for the rear passengers.

Keyless Entry

Incorporating “Keyless Go” technology, the body of the Quattroporte’s key is made from polished aluminium and looks and feels heavy, elegant and confidently technical. When the car is locked, it is enough to keep the key in a pocket or a handbag and simply open the car by pulling on the door handle or luggage compartment button. An extended keyless entry function is available as standard on the GranLusso versions.

Power Boot Lid with Hands-free Mode

With the introduction of the Power Boot lid - which is standard on the Quattroporte GTS - the light-weight aluminium boot lid is now autonomous in its closing phase. With its electric actuators and a motorised latch, the system allows you to open or close the boot automatically, ensuring that the lid is locked upon closing.

In addition, it is possible to open and close the Power Boot Lid by simply moving your foot under the rear bumper. In this case and for safety reasons, the lid will open or close only if the “Passive Entry” system acknowledges the presence of the key.

Double laminated windscreens

The Quattroporte is also designed to be comfortable as well as safe and technically superb.

The windscreen and the rear window are both made from double laminated acoustic glass. As 51% of a car’s external noise enters the cabin through the windscreen, the use of acoustic glass has enabled Maserati to make the cabin more comfortable and focus on delivering the type of noise Maserati owners prefer.

The side windows employ similar technology with single-layer lamination and acoustic damping. All this adds up to reduced external noise and excellent temperature stability, along with more robust windows, all of which increases the occupants' comfort and safety. In addition, all three rear windows can be fitted with darkened glass for greater privacy.

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

•   Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go

•   Lane Departure Warning

•   Forward Collision Warning with Advanced Brake Assist

•   Automated Emergency Braking

•   Blind Spot Alert

•   New Rear View camera with dynamic lines

•   Surround View Camera

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go function

The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with integrated Stop&Go function further increases comfort and safety when driving on main roads and motorways. The ACC allows the driver to keep cruise control engaged without having to constantly reset the system when approaching slower moving vehicles.

When activated, ACC constantly monitors the space between the Quattroporte and the vehicle ahead, maintaining a safe pre-set distance. If the traffic slows or another vehicle moves in front, it slows the car down by making it coast or by engaging the brakes. Conversely, when the vehicle ahead speeds up or moves into another lane, the system accelerates up to the pre-set speed.

The ACC uses a radar sensor, located on the front grille, and a front-looking camera behind the internal rear-view mirror to detect the presence of a vehicle ahead. If the ACC is automatically braking, the stoplights go on as if the driver is braking.

Thanks to the integrated Stop&Go function, the car will adjust to the target vehicle’s speed until it comes to a complete stop and will depart automatically within 2 seconds.

Lane Departure Warning

The Lane Departure Warning (LDW) has been designed specifically for motorway driving in order to reduce the risk of the vehicle accidentally departing from its current lane.

If the vehicle unintentionally crosses the lane markers, graphic instructions on the instrument panel together with an acoustic chime warn the driver that the vehicle is veering out of its lane. When the indicators are activated no warning is given.

The system uses a front looking camera in the interior rear-view mirror. The LDW can be de-activated from the Maserati Touch Control Plus and is reactivated automatically every time the engine restarts. The system works only at speeds over 70 km/h.

Forward Collision Warning

The Forward Collision Warning (FCW) monitors vehicles ahead by means of a camera and warns the driver via visual and audible alerts if there is the danger of a possible rear-end collision.

If the driver brakes and the system determines that the driver has not applied sufficient brake force, the Advanced Brake Assist will compensate for this and provide the appropriate amount of additional braking.

Automated Emergency Braking

AEB is an active system that provides braking support when collision is imminent. The system is designed to avoid collisions or to reduce collision energy.

A potential collision is identified by the Adaptive Cruise Control radar and a forward looking camera. The driver is provided with visual and audible alerts as an early warning to start braking. If the driver does not take action, the system will autonomously brake to help slow the vehicle down and minimise the impact.

Blind Spot Alert & Rear Cross Path

The Blind Spot Alert uses visual and audible signals to alert the driver when a vehicle enters the blind spot zones; this important safety feature has been introduced to avoid unwanted collisions when the driver changes lane. This system, conceived to reduce the risks involved in changing lane, monitors the blind spot areas using two radar-based sensors located inside the rear bumper fascia; when a vehicle approaches from behind, the LED warning signal embedded in the side mirrors lights up while a chime alert also sounds.

The area beside and behind the car is monitored at speeds above 10 km/h in order to avoid unwanted collisions with other vehicles on the road.

The Rear Cross Path function issues the same alerts when backing out of a parking space; this feature is intended to help drivers back out of parking spaces where their view of oncoming vehicles may be blocked. Using sensors located on either side of the rear bumper, it detects any vehicles or objects that are moving at the side of the vehicle between a minimum speed of approximately 1 to 3 km/h and a maximum speed of approximately 16 km/h, such as in a parking lot.

New Rear View Camera

A next-generation rear view camera is available on all Quattroporte. It is located above the number plate. It turns on automatically when the reverse gear is selected and shows the area behind the car on the new high resolution head unit display. The camera utilizes the rear parking sensors to both visually and acoustically alert the driver about potential objects or obstructions. 

The Dynamic reference lines provide a clear orientation system when parking or during tight manoeuvres. Dynamic grid lines represent the maximum width of the car and the projected path based on the steering angle signal.

Surround View Camera

A new Surround View Camera system is available as an option in the new Quattroporte, always in combination with the new Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. It uses four cameras in total - two lateral cameras housed underneath the side mirrors, one camera in the front and one in the rear - and provides a clear 360° view around the car in a top-down image in the new high resolution display.

It is activated automatically in reverse gear or manually via the soft button on the 8.4” display and provides different selectable views: front, front cross (180°), rear, rear cross and top view. It also shows open doors and parking guidelines.


A range of high performance V6 & V8 engines

·       Petrol V6 & V8 designed and manufactured by Ferrari

·       3.0 V6 twin-turbo GDI petrol engine with 410 hp & 350 hp

·       0-100 in 4.7” and 310 km/h top speed for the GTS

·       6.2 litres/100 km for the 275 hp diesel version

·       Euro 6 homologation for all engines

In 2013 Maserati launched today's Quattroporte: the sixth-generation model delivered a leap forward that not only set the high-technology tone for Maserati’s upcoming new-model strategy, but also remained faithful to Maserati’s long history. The flagship of the Maserati product range is larger, lighter, more luxurious and more practical than its globally acclaimed predecessor.

Powerful engines and a large cabin are at the core of the Quattroporte’s design. With all of its technology, the Quattroporte remains true to Maserati’s roots. The Quattroporte GTS, the Quattroporte S and Quattroporte are powered by high-performance engines of extremely sophisticated architecture.

The engine range, which was updated in 2016, is Euro 6 homologated and offers up to a 12% reduction in emissions and consumption, while its performance versus the previous Euro 5 engines is unchanged.

The petrol engines, all with direct injection, benefit from the introduction of the Start&Stop system. The family of Maserati petrol engines boasts a 3.8-litre V8 (Quattroporte GTS) and a 3.0-litre V6 (Quattroporte S, SQ4 and Quattroporte), both of which are Twin Turbo charged, developed by Maserati Powertrain in partnership with Ferrari Powertrain and built by Ferrari in its world-leading high-performance engine construction facility in Maranello.

The engine of the Quattroporte GTS, the flagship of the range, provides Maserati’s new performance benchmark, reaching 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds and achieving a 310 km/h top speed. The Quattroporte S engine doesn’t lack for performance either, reaching 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds and achieving a 286 km/h top speed. Both the Quattroporte GTS and the Quattroporte S have a rear-wheel drive configuration.

The GTS model is not only the fastest but also the most powerful four-door Maserati ever built, and also boasts the best consumption-performance ratio.

The Quattroporte S is available with Maserati’s first ever AWD system. The sophisticated Maserati Q4 system has been designed to enhance the high-performance, grand touring qualities of the Quattroporte, and offer absolute safety and genuine all-weather capability, whatever the road conditions. The Quattroporte SQ4 accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds.

The 3.0-litre Twin Turbo V6 is now available in specific markets with 350 hp, 20 hp more than in the previous version. The V6 of the Quattroporte delivers a powerful drive with a torque of 500 Nm between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm with 90% of the maximum torque already available at just 1,600 rpm. The latest addition to the Quattroporte range retains its sporty Maserati character with an acceleration of 5.5 seconds from zero to 100 km/h and a top speed of 270 km/h.

In the best Maserati tradition, the sound and performance of the Quattroporte's exhaust system is controlled by pneumatic valves in the pipes of each bank, and passes through the unique Maserati Sound Tank to maintain the rich aural tradition of the brand.

In “Normal” default mode, the bypass valves are closed up to 3,000 rpm to produce a comfortable and discreet engine sound. In “sport” mode not only does the car adjust to a variety of handling parameters but the exhaust valves are also opened, offering the shortest possible, high-energy route for the exhaust gases, which gives the Quattroporte its maximum engine performance and unique Maserati engine sound.

The Quattroporte is available with a 3.0-litre V6 Turbodiesel engine, now Euro 6 homologated and inclusive of Ad Blue technology. This powerful unit is specifically developed by VM Motori according to Maserati’s requirements in terms of performance, efficiency and driving satisfaction.

The Quattroporte Diesel delivers 600 Nm of torque and a maximum power of 275 hp (a 250 hp variant is available for the Italian market only). The engine accelerates the Quattroporte from 0-100 km/h in 6.4 seconds up to a maximum speed of 252 km/h.


Quattroporte GTS - 530 hp V8 Twin Turbo

The flagship 3.8-litre V8 engine is the perfect representation of Maserati’s performance tradition. It is a Euro 6 homologated engine combined with a 12% reduction in emissions and consumption versus the previous Euro 5 engine, thanks in part to the Start&Stop system.

The engine produces 390 kW (530 hp) of power at 6,800 rpm and 650 Nm of torque from 2,000 rpm to 4,000 rpm. This maximum normal torque figure can be automatically over-boosted to 710 Nm from 2,250 rpm to 3,500 rpm.

These engine figures help the Quattroporte to reach 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds, making it the fastest accelerating four-door car in Maserati’s history.

Another record held by the Quattroporte is its top speed, well above the 300 km/h barrier at 310 km/h and second only to the mighty MC12 with V12 engine.

This engine has been specifically designed to deliver exceptional performance at all engine speeds, combined with lower consumption and emissions. The engine diagrams show that the V8 engine’s torque is very high even at speeds as low as 1,500 rpm.

It uses high-tumble cylinder heads and four-phase variators in a concept refined by Maserati Powertrain for optimal combustion control to deliver high performance and low consumption.

The V8 engine is boosted by two small parallel twin-scroll turbines - one for each bank of four cylinders - which provide the high performance expected of a Maserati engine while reducing inertia. Maserati Powertrain focused on integrating the turbine housing into the exhaust manifold for a compact, lightweight solution. Each turbocharger is fed by its own air-to-air intercooler. The Quattroporte has two intercoolers, each mounted low and wide of the main radiators to catch a constant supply of fresh, cool air.

The engine also operates in both “Normal” and “Sport” modes, and there are manual versions of both modes, operated by elongated shift paddles fixed to the steering column. The Quattroporte also introduces the I.C.E. (Increased Control & Efficiency) strategy, a function aimed at reducing consumption, emissions and noise.

It is a user-select strategy and delivers a softer throttle pedal response for smooth driving, cancels the turbocharger’s over-boost function and keeps the exhaust’s “sport” flaps closed until 5,000 rpm. It also adjusts the gearshifts to make them softer and slower and reduces torque at each gear’s take-up point.

Besides delivering the Quattroporte’s peak fuel efficiency figure, the I.C.E. mode is also very useful for driving on low-grip surfaces.

Quattroporte S - 410hp V6 Twin Turbo

The Quattroporte’s V6 Twin Turbo engine bears a close resemblance to the V8, sharing most of its core components as well as Euro 6 homologation. With 302 kW (410 hp) of power at 5,500 rpm, the V6 Twin Turbo provides a tremendously powerful driving experience with 550 Nm of torque between 1,750 rpm and 5,000 rpm.

While it shares much with the V8 Twin Turbo, it has a character of its own, revving to a 6,000 rpm maximum speed and delivering its torque peak 500 rpm sooner. While its specific power output is slightly lower (at 137 hp per litre), its specific torque is higher than that of the V8, at 183 Nm per litre.

The AWD version of the Quattroporte S is also a lighter car than the GTS, weighing 1,860 kg, and goes from 0 to 100 km/h in a remarkable 4.9”. The RWD version accelerates to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 286 km/h.

The V6 achieves 9.6 litres/100 km on the combined cycle with 223 grams of CO2/km. Like its V8 sibling the V6, with its parallel twin-turbochargers, was developed by Maserati Powertrain in partnership with Ferrari Powertrain and is built by Ferrari in Maranello.

The V6 engine shares the V8’s bore dimensions, the same variable valve technology, and almost the same turbocharging, manifold and engine block technology.

It uses high-tumble cylinder heads and four-phase variators (double the number of a traditional V8) in a concept refined by Maserati Powertrain for optimal combustion control to deliver high performance and low consumption. With two continuous cam phasers for each cylinder head, it can advance or retard the inlet and exhaust valve timing independently in real time.

As on the V8, the engine also uses an ECU with integral high-speed processors which handle an array of functions in real time. Maserati Powertrain has also switched to on-demand ancillaries, with a variable displacement oil pump that works under electrical control for improved consumption and performance.

It also uses an innovative computer system to control the alternator, which monitors the vehicle’s electricity consumption and manages the alternator’s workload to suit.

Quattroporte - 350 hp V6 Twin Turbo

In addition to the existing portfolio of the 530 hp V8 Maserati Quattroporte GTS and the 410 hp V6 Quattroporte S and S Q4, a new entry-level Euro 6, 3.0-litre Twin Turbo V6 is available, now upgraded to 350 hp thanks to a different engine mapping.

The engine was designed by Maserati and is being manufactured by Ferrari in Maranello for exclusive use of Maserati. With 350 hp at 5,500 rpm, the Quattroporte V6 delivers a powerful drive with a torque of 500 Nm between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm. 90% of the maximum torque is already available at just 1,600 rpm.

Thanks to its 3.0-litre engine, the Quattroporte achieves the lowest ever petrol consumption in its 50-year history with just 9.1 litres/100 km as well as CO2 emissions of 212 grams/km. The latest addition to the Quattroporte range retains its sporty Maserati character accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and boasting a top speed of 270 km/h.

Quattroporte - 275 hp Turbodiesel

Maserati’s first diesel engine, a 3.0 litre V6 Turbo, has been specifically developed by VM Motori according to Maserati’s requirements in terms of performance, efficiency and driving satisfaction. The engine is Euro 6 homologated and incorporates Ad Blue technology, with its specific on-board tank placed below the rear tank.

The excellent technological characteristics of this power unit are based on a Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) with ball bearing to reduce internal friction and consequently turbo lag. Specific, high-efficiency injectors coupled with a 2,000 bar fuel injection system optimise combustion, while variable geometry intake manifolds optimise output at all engine speeds. Specific steel double thin wall exhaust manifolds with Air Gap technology maintain a higher exhaust gas temperature, energise the flow of exhaust gas and contribute to the high specific power delivered.

These features lend this Maserati the dynamic characteristics that have always distinguished all Maserati power units. The Quattroporte Turbodiesel delivers 600 Nm of torque between 2,000-2,600 rpm and maximum power of 275 hp (a 250 hp variant is available for the Italian market only) at 4,000 rpm. The engine accelerates the Quattroporte from 0-100 km/h in 6.4 seconds, up to a maximum speed of 252 km/h. With the Start&Stop system, a CO2 figure of 163 g/km and fuel consumption of 6.2 l/100 km (combined cycle), the Maserati Quattroporte is also highly efficient.

Active Sound exhaust

A thrilling exhaust sound is one of the most desirable features of any Maserati. Thanks to Active Sound technology, the Quattroporte Diesel exhaust system produces a characteristic Maserati sound that underlines the sporty nature of the car and can be varied at the touch of a button.

Two sound actuators, fitted near the exhaust tailpipes, accentuate the engine’s most distinctive tones and modulate them according to the way the car is being driven. When the driver presses the “sport” button on the central tunnel, the sound becomes even more resonant and utterly inspiring for a diesel engine - reminiscent of that of a V8 petrol engine. Just the soundtrack you would expect from a Maserati.

8-speed automatic & Q4 AWD

  • ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox
  • Intelligent Q4 AWD system
  • Mechanical rear limited-slip differential as standard

All versions of the Quattroporte are fitted with ZF AT8 - HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission that ensures improved comfort, faster gear shifting, optimised fuel consumption and reduced Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH).

By delivering two over-driven gears, the transmission alone contributes a lot to overall efficiency. As befitting the Maserati tradition, it can be set to five dedicated shift modes: “Auto Normal”, “Auto Sport”, “Manual Normal”, “Manual Sport” and the I.C.E. mode. All gearshift modes can be selected via buttons on the left of the gear knob.

“Auto Normal” is the Quattroporte’s default setting and performs its gear changes with fluid shifts at low engine speeds to emphasize the car’s comfort and to minimize fuel consumption.

The “Auto Sport” mode sees the transmission switch the drive character to change gears with greater alacrity at higher engine speeds and delivers a distinct gear engagement to enhance the powertrain’s sporty feel.

In both of these modes, the car recognizes a variety of conditions, such as whether it is travelling up or downhill, is braking hard or is driving through a corner, and selects the best gear and the best gear-shift style accordingly.

The transmission can also be controlled manually by selecting the “M” button on the transmission tunnel. In “Manual Normal” mode, the driver can change gear with either the elongated gearshift paddles besides the steering column or by using the gear lever. The driver is in charge of gear selection although the system will intervene and change to a lower gear if the engine revs drop too low or a higher gear if the engine revs climb too high.

In “Manual Sport” mode gearshifts are at their fastest and crispest, giving the driver full control of the powertrain. The system will not intervene, even if the driver strikes the engine’s rev limiter. It will only intervene if the engine’s revs drop too low to be effective in a given gear.

The I.C.E. (Increased Control & Efficiency) mode is designed for remarkable fuel economy and relaxed driving, and performs ideally in low grip conditions. The transmission changes gear as softly as possible, both going up through the gears and returning back down.

The Quattroporte utilises a mechanical limited-slip rear differential as well. The bevel-drive, asymmetric unit offers 35% lock-up under power and 45% under release.

Quattroporte SQ4: All-Wheel Drive the Maserati way

The sophisticated Maserati Q4 system has been designed to enhance the high-performance, grand touring qualities of the Quattroporte and offer absolute safety and genuine all-weather capability, whatever the road conditions.

The Quattroporte SQ4 accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds, slightly faster than the Quattroporte S with rear-wheel drive, while maintaining almost the same fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The top speed is 286 km/h.

The intelligent Q4 All Wheel Drive system has been engineered to be compact and lightweight. It has been studied and developed to guarantee highest traction, torque, as well as comfort in all conditions, with optimised consumption.

The Q4 system has been conceived to convey a typical Maserati rear-wheel driving experience, even on low grip road conditions. The system acts by transferring traction to the front wheels on demand and with an immediate response.

In normal driving conditions the system provides 100% of the engine torque to the rear wheels, also to optimize fuel consumption and emissions. In low grip driving conditions (slippery or loose road surfaces) or in the case of a loss of grip at the rear axle (acceleration from zero or very high cornering speed), the system reacts instantaneously, transferring the necessary traction to the front wheels.

In a mere 150 milliseconds, the Q4 system is capable of altering the torque split from 100% rear wheel drive to equal distribution (50%-50%) between the front and rear wheels. When conditions require, the Q4 All Wheel Drive system, with its variable torque control, activates constantly and continuously.

While the change in torque split is imperceptible, a monitoring system is integrated in the 7” cluster display which visualises the front to rear distribution in real time. The system architecture is based on an electronically controlled multi-plate wet clutch installed into a transfer case linked by a drive shaft to the front axle.

While driving, a sophisticated algorithm specifically developed by Maserati is capable of monitoring an extensive range of dynamic vehicle parameters (wheel speed, steering and yaw angle, power output, speed, braking action, ESP) in real time, as well as wheel grip vs. driving style. Processing all this data the Q4 system can maximize a dedicated grip profile for each single wheel, creating the optimal vehicle dynamic management to suit any given road condition, at any time. This strategy has the sole objective of optimizing the balance between driving pleasure and safety.

Ultimate blend of performance and comfort

  • Extensive use of aluminium in chassis, body and suspension
  • Ideal 50:50% weight distribution
  • Double wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension
  • Electronically controlled Skyhook shock absorbers

With the longest wheelbase in the class at its core, the Quattroporte’s architecture lends itself both to extreme interior comfort and an exciting handling platform. Despite its increased size, the latest Quattroporte is considerably lighter than the previous generation, weighing 1,900 kg - 94 kg less than the flagship predecessor in V8 form. The V6 Quattroporte weighs 1,860 kg - 40 kg less than the V8 version.

Based around a rigid and extremely secure steel safety cell, it uses an array of different steel and aluminium alloys, each designated a precise task to maximize strength, minimize weight and retain the sports saloon’s perfect weight distribution.

The front of the chassis is based around an aluminium casting, with a reinforced cross-strut which helps deliver outstanding rigidity in all directions, while the rear of the chassis is made from rolled steel.

The choice of aluminium for the bulk of the Quattroporte’s body panels was based around the delivery of maximum possible occupant safety for the lowest possible weight. Accordingly, all four doors, the bonnet, the front quarter panels and the boot lid are all made from aluminium.

Other exotic materials are also used in the Quattroporte’s body including ultra-light weight magnesium in the dashboard’s cross strut.

Another critical factor is weight distribution and the Quattroporte retains the ideal balance with 50:50 front-to-rear weight. This is despite the forward repositioning of the fuel tank to create greater luggage space and the addition of All Wheel Drive, bigger radiators and two intercoolers beneath the bonnet.

Standard Skyhook Suspension

Double wishbone suspension layouts are a race-bred tradition at Maserati and the Quattroporte continued with this heritage also incorporating some new technologies for greater accuracy.

The front suspension uses high-mounted all-aluminium double wishbones to guarantee light and precise handling characteristics.

Aluminium is the dominant metal of the front suspension system with the dome nuts, the hub carrier bars and uprights all made from forged aluminium, while the springs are made from steel. This matches up to constantly adaptive Skyhook dampers and an anti-roll bar.

The geometry of the system has delivered a quadrilateral architecture, which has enabled Maserati’s handling team to deliver steering that is precise, communicative and comfortable.

The rear suspension employs a five-bar multi-link system, with four aluminium suspension arms, and has achieved the conflicting targets of executive ride comfort and extreme sports performance.

The suspension package also uses anti-roll bars and steel springs damped by a faster and more accurate development of the Skyhook adaptive damping system. All four Skyhook dampers can be electronically controlled independently of each other.

One of the standout features of the Quattroporte is the standard Skyhook system with electronically controlled dampers. Skyhook prioritizes comfort and then becomes more sporty and athletic if the driver presses the suspension button, which is separated from the “sport” button. This extra stiffness transforms the Quattroporte’s handling and was developed in both extreme test scenarios and on the race track. Essentially, it drastically reduces both longitudinal and lateral load transfers and minimizes body roll to bring out the sportier side of the Quattroporte’s character.

Brakes

Maserati has continued its long association with Brembo on the Quattroporte and most models feature fixed-caliper braking technology.

The Quattroporte 350 hp, Diesel and S feature four-piston brakes with fixed alloy Brembo calipers and 345x28 mm ventilated discs in the front; floating calipers by Continental with 330x22 mm ventilated discs in the rear.

The brakes on the Quattroporte S Q4 model are 360x32 mm ventilated and cross-drilled Dual Cast type with six-piston fixed alloy Brembo calipers on the front axle, while the rear axle is fitted with four-piston fixed alloy Brembo calipers with self-ventilating perforated discs of 345x28 mm.

The front axle of the Quattroporte GTS has 380x34 mm ventilated and cross-drilled Dual Cast brake discs and six-piston fixed alloy Brembo calipers with the same brake system as the S Q4 version on the rear axle.

The brake discs continue to be Dual Cast, a technology pioneered by Maserati which allows the weight of the cast-iron braking surface area to be offset with an alloy hat to minimise unsprung mass.

These brakes have an enlarged swept area, highly efficient cooling, are designed for consistent performance in sporty driving situations and are oversized for the demands created by even the Quattroporte’s extremely high performance potential.

But high-performance stopping power is only one measure of overall braking performance and the collaboration with Brembo also concentrated on evolving the acoustic comfort of the Quattroporte’s braking systems. As befitting the rest of the Quattroporte story, the braking development reconciled the seemingly opposing goals of pure performance and pure comfort.

The brakes also operate as part of the Quattroporte’s automatic hill start system. The on-board sensors detect the vehicle's tilt when parked facing uphill, then lock the brakes for a few seconds; this gives the driver’s foot time to move from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal without the vehicle rolling back.

New Electronic Parking Brake


A new Electronic Parking Brake has been adopted on the braking system of the MY17 Quattroporte. Thanks to its state-of-the-art technology the new EPB offers improved performance and reliability. On the braking system with rear floating calipers, a new Motor On Caliper (MOC) is fitted on the rear caliper, which is now provided by Continental, while the disc diameter is slightly increased from 320 mm to 330 mm.

On the braking systems with dual cast discs adopted by the Quattroporte SQ4 and GTS, an additional EPB caliper is fitted on the rear brake discs. 

Hydraulic Steering

The Quattroporte uses a technological aluminium steering box, developed specifically for the high-performance front-suspension geometry.

This has allowed Maserati’s suspension engineers to deliver ultimate precision combined with the steering sensitivity needed for turning into corners at speed.

It also has a reduced steering ratio, which delivers an agility that is rare for this class and while it is comfortable in all situations, the steering feel is geared up towards driving enjoyment.

Eschewing the trend for electro-hydraulic steering systems, the Quattroporte employs a servo-powered hydraulic system that prevents unpleasantly artificial assistance when the driver turns the wheel quickly. The power assistance has also been reduced compared to the superseded Quattroporte, the intention being to deliver more feedback to the driver for consistency at high speed while ensuring easy manoeuvring at low speed.

Active and Passive safety

•   Maserati Stability Program

•   Passive Safety Systems

 

Maserati Stability Program

Maserati drivers have long been aware of the benefits of the Maserati Stability Program (MSP) and the system has evolved and improved in the Quattroporte. Developed in the most extreme test circumstances, the MSP uses a wide array of sensors to detect any need to intervene on the driver’s behalf. MSP adds a layer of security on top of the Quattroporte’s inherent chassis stability that helps drivers enjoy anxiety-free handling in all driving conditions.

MSP constantly measures the Quattroporte’s handling and grip and combines a host of safety and performance systems to maintain the car’s ideal handling stance.

Two of the main elements of the MSP are the engine and the brakes. If skidding is detected, the MSP reduces the engine’s torque output and can activate the brakes with finely varied inputs to restore the car’s stability within milliseconds.

The other key systems that make up MSP include:

•    ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)

•    Anti Slip Regulation (ASR)

•    Motor Spin Regulator (MSR) that prevents wheels from locking up when downshifting on low-grip surfaces.

•    Brake Assist System (BAS), which recognises emergency braking situations and increases the pressure in the braking circuit.

•    Hill Holder, which automatically connects to the braking system to prevent roll back

Passive Safety Systems

The Quattroporte’s passive safety equipment has been given a tightly focussed overhaul to successfully improve its crash safety without compromising its weight or fuel consumption.

Maserati has balanced these conflicting demands by using hot-formed steels in critical areas of the passenger compartment for added occupant safety, while using aluminium in other areas to save weight.

In particular, the front of the passenger compartment (the pillars and under-door mouldings) features hot-moulded steel components, with a magnesium dashboard strut to save weight, while the rear is stiffened with high-strength steel. The crash bars at the front and rear of the car are made of extruded aluminium, while the doors, engine compartment, mudguards and luggage compartment are in aluminium.

Airbag system

The Quattroporte is equipped with a six-airbag system to provide maximum occupant safety. At the front, two-stage airbags are concealed from occupants inside the steering wheel and dashboard and protect the head in frontal accidents. The chest and hips of the front occupants are further protected by the side airbags beneath the seat leather. The sides of the occupants’ heads are protected by two head “curtain” bags mounted in the roof of the car, next to the B-pillar. The “curtain” bag protects the heads of the front and rear occupants against lateral impact.

Seat belts and restraint systems

The front seats are brimming with safety equipment designed to reduce trauma to the occupant's cervical vertebrae. If the car is involved in a rear-end accident, its active headrests automatically reduce the distance between their surface and the passenger's head.

The front and rear three-point seatbelts are equipped with load-limiting pyrotechnic pre-tensioners, which trip in a collision to hold the passengers securely and prevent or minimise injury.

The front seatbelts are fitted with height adjusters which properly adjust the height of the seatbelts to the occupant's height, improving comfort as well as the safety of the device.

Quattroporte development & testing

The Maserati Quattroporte is built to the latest quality standards, at the very top of the industry, at the Avvocato Giovanni Agnelli Plant of Grugliasco, near Turin.

The Quattroporte plant guarantees outstanding quality and meticulous control of even the tiniest details, combining state-of-the-art technologies and production processes - including latest generation robots - with Maserati’s tradition of craftsmanship.

Every single Quattroporte is subject to a quality assurance test when it emerges from the production line.

A long and rigorous program of reliability tests was included in the testing programme during the model’s development:

  • More than 6,000,000 test kilometres.
  • A fleet of more than 90 Quattroporte units.
  • Hundreds of thousands of additional validation test kilometres.
  • Every single component tested for endurance, quality & noise.
  • Testing in extreme heat in South Africa and Morocco.
  • Testing in extreme cold in Sweden and New Zealand.
  • Severe process control, including four in ‘Body-in-White’,
  • Three in painting, and
  • Four in the assembly process.
  • Additional electronics, dynamometer and water testing.
  • More than 700 control checks for each car in production.
  • Final 30-minute quality audit before delivery to the customer.
  • On-road 40 km test before delivery to the customer.

For the development of the MY17 Quattroporte a total of 840,000 test kilometres were covered in the hinterland of Turin. New GranSport and carbon contents were thoroughly tested in extreme hot and cold conditions, from Sicily to the Italian Alps.
