An upgraded version, the 2017 Maserati Quattroporte will soon be available with a slimmer design, new trim levels and all-new packages so as to keep the model interesting for its audience.
Maserati is keen on keeping its line up of cars refreshed at all times so that they can compete in the market. The new Quattroporte will have two new trim levels available exclusive for the European region. It is set to solve the requirements of two different buyer groups. The design changes are evident as the front fascia of the car has undergone some major changes including a unique front and rear bumper. New matte black accents contrast the color variants. The black finish is carried throughout the side skirts as well as the matte black mirrors.
The front bumper is not only sporty and has a huge grille but also has an air shutter which is electrically controlled. In the official statement, the engineers who worked on the car confirmed that the new shutter is versatile and can perform a variety of tasks including cooling as well as bring aerodynamic improvement to the body.
