The Maserati Ghibli has undergone a minor facelift after four years on sale.

On show at the Chengdu Motorshow in China, the new GranLusso variant sports minor visual changes, while also adding more and updated equipment. Its GranSport sister model will be similarly updated.

Maserati claims that the exterior restyling has contributed to a substantial improvement in the car’s aerodynamic efficiency, though figures have not been released. The car gains a new front bumper with chrome bars incorporated to reflect the design signature of more recently released Maserati models such as the Levante SUV, while the new rear bumper with its body-colour diffuser produces a sharper look to the back of the car.

Autonomous ready

Extra equipment now available includes adaptive full LED headlamps with Matrix high-beam lamps that will not cause glare to oncoming traffic, while Maserati is also introducing systems to the Ghibli that will enable autonomous driving in future. The existing interior layout is retained, having only recently been updated, principally gaining a new infotainment system.

   

Maserati has not yet released any powertrain details of the facelifted car but these are expected to remain unchanged as both the 3-litre V6 petrol and diesel engines recently gained power upgrades – the diesel now offers 275hp while the petrol can be bought with either 310 or 430hp.

Similarly the current prices, ranging between £50,000 and £66,000 are expected to see few changes when the revamped Maserati Ghibli goes on sale early in 2018 as a more exclusive rival to the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
