It is also the first Maserati in history to be powered by a diesel engine, with a turbo-diesel V6 that produces all the sound, refinement and driving pleasure typical of Maserati while delivering fuel consumption over 47 mpg (below 6 litres/100km). The new Ghibli diesel will also be the first Maserati with Star-Stop technology.

The new Ghibli features more dynamic driving characteristics through a more aggressive visual personality, yet still maintained discernible visual links with the Quattroporte. The outline of the body reflects a coupe-like philosophy for the four-door saloon, while there are strong feline hints around the Ghibli’s grille and headlights. The grille takes its inspiration from the current GranTurismo and it can draw a line back to the classic 1950s A6 GCS. It also maintains Maserati’s distinctive C-pillar treatment, which delivers much of the coupe-like stance and carries the classical Saetta Maserati logo, carrying on a tradition dating back to 1963. The side profile is dominated by a swage line that runs from the traditional Maserati grille vents behind the front wheels and finishes in the rear lights themselves.

The interior of the Ghibli sets itself apart from the Quattroporte with a unique dashboard design that perfectly matches its sportier and more youthful character without losing any of the luxury expected from Maserati. The Ghibli also delivers a sporty design combined with all the spaciousness expected in an executive saloon from Maserati.

The Ghibli, Ghibli S and Ghibli Diesel all have an eight-speed automatic transmission to deliver their performance, providing seamless comfort with fast gear shifting for hard acceleration.

It offers luxury features like the Maserati Touch Control screen, reversing camera, Poltrona Frau leather interior and the 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system, as well as WLAN-based Wi-Fi and compatibility with most modern mobile phone systems.
