Maserati Shows Off The Flagship Quattroporte Sedan


Visitors to the 2018 Vancouver International Auto Show had achance to experience Maserati’s entire vehicle lineup up close and in person.

The show stand in Vancouver offered a full glimpse into the expanded Maserati portfolio. This included several examples of The House of The Trident’s intelligent Q4 all-wheel-drive system, which encourages confidence in any type of weather. Vehicles on display included a pair of Levante S vehicles, with varying Blu Emozione and Nero Ribelle exteriors, which was also be presented with an example of GranLusso trim. In addition, a GranTurismo Convertible MC in Blu Sofisticato exterior and Bianco Pregiato interior was joined by a grey Quattroporte S Q4 and a white Ghibli S Q4.

All four model lines have received upgrades for 2018. Updates to the Ghibli and Levante MY18 include the addition of GranLusso and GranSport trims, previously introduced in the Quattroporte range. Customers now have the option to choose between one of two distinct trims for the Levante and the Ghibli: GranSport or GranLusso. GranSport was conceived to meet the demands of a sportier expression of the high-end lifestyle, while the sophisticated and luxurious GranLusso cabin combines a choice of Ermenegildo Zegna silk or full premium Italian upholstery and includes upgrades such as Radica open-pore wood trim and a leather steering wheel.
