2017 Maserati Quattroporte launched in Malaysia, priced from RM779k


Naza Italia has just introduced the refreshed Maserati Quattorporte to their lineup. With the 2017 model, the Quattroporte gets a series of visual enhancements, revised interior as well as two distinctive trim levels to choose from.

The exterior of the Quattroporte have been extensively revised to feature new parts at the bumper, front grille and wing mirrors. It also comes with a series of matte black finishes at the front lip, rear extractor and side skirts. The front grille features an electronically adjustable Air Shutter which opens and close to optimise air flow to the engine and drag. According to Maserati, this technology is able to reduce drag by 10 percent.2017 Maserati Quattroporte GranSport available in Malaysia

The Quattroporte can be had in three varaints – Quattroporte, S and GTS. The base model is powered by a Ferrari-built 3.0-litre twinturbo V6 capable of producing 350 hp and 500 Nm of torque with a 0 – 100 km/h sprint time of 5.5 seconds and 270 km/h top speed. On the other hand, the hotter Quattroporte S gets its power bumped up to 410 hp and 550 Nm. Century sprint time is slashed to 5.1 seconds while top speed is registered at 286 km/h.

Top of the range Quattroporte GTS gets a Ferrari-built 3.8-litre twinturbo V8 that churns out 530 hp and 710 Nm of torque. It takes the hot sedan only 4.7 seconds to reach 100 km/h before reaching a top speed of 310 km/h. All three variants get a ZF eight-speed automatic to send power exclusively to the rear-wheels.

Like on the Ghibli, customers can opt for the optional Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) which includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Blind Spot Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning with Advanced Brake Assist and Automated Emergency Braking. Surround View Camera however, remains an option.2017 Maserati Quattroporte GranSport available in Malaysia

New to the Quattroporte range are the GranLusso and GranSport trims which add on unique design cues to the exterior and interior. These two trim lines are available as an upgrade for the Quattroporte and S variants, but comes as standard on the GTS.

GranLusso trim is immediately recognisable from the outside thanks to the 20-inch Mercurio rims with black brake callipers. The interior is further refined with Radica wood dashboard, wooden steering inlays, power foot pedals, electric rear sunblind, four-zone climate control, headed rear seats and extended keyless entry. For even more luxury, customers can specify the optional Ermenegildo Zegna Edition interior that finishes the interior with patented silk fabric.2017 Maserati Quattroporte GranSport available in Malaysia

GranSport trim adopts a sportier approach with a more aggressive exterior styling and 21-inch Titano rims. Same goes for the interior with a new sports steering wheel which can be had in either carbon fibre or wrapped in full leather. It also gets aluminium shift paddles, stainless steel sport pedals and sportier front and rear seats. As an option, the Exterior Carbon Pack that’s exclusive to the GranSport trim adds carbon fibre touches to the front bumper, door handles, wing mirrors and B-pillar cover.

The facelifted Quattroporte is now available for viewing and booking with a price of RM779k for the entry level Quattroporte. As for the S and GTS, the price is available upon request. Every new purchase of the Quattroporte comes with a 3-Year or 60,000km service package.
