DOHA: The All-new 2019 Maserati Quattroporte brings cutting-edge technologies, Italian beauty, to the luxury sports sedan arena. It is the most stunning sports sedan in the market which is available in four trim levels.
Only two decades ago, luxury sports car makers began to realize the importance of 'four-door sports cars. However, Maserati started producing luxury sports sedans in the mid-sixties—decades before their rivals launched similar models! Billed as the 'world's first luxury sports sedan, Maserati unveiled the first-generation Quattroporte in 1963. It boasted a powerful V8 motor racing engine, unique and attractive design, and other charismatic characteristics. The original and legendary Quattroporte was the fastest sedan in the world at that time.
Fast forward fifty-six years later. This unique luxury sports sedan still blends sensational Italian styling and hand-crafted finishes with thrilling handling and supreme performance. The all-new Quattroporte is a trailblazer. It's one of the most stunning sports sedans available in the market.
The current sixth generation Quattroporte arrived in 2013—a significant improvement over the previous generations. Now grown-up, the current Quattroporte styling closely echoes that of the GranTurismo's. And the sporty interior received updated materials and innovative technologies.
Better yet, Maserati dropped the naturally-aspirated, 4.7-liter V-8 engine in favor of a turbocharged, 3.8-liter unit. The luxury Italian brand also added a 3.0-liter, V-6 engine to Quattroporte line-up models.
For the model year 2019, the all-new Quattroporte gained a handful of exterior and interior refinements. All making it look more luxurious, athletic, and appealing than ever. Undoubtedly, it is the world's only super-sedan! More stylish visual changes visually, the latest Quattroporte blends sensational Italian beauty with sporty and aggressive touches. The 2019 Quattroporte is available in four trim levels: the standard 'Quattroporte, the more luxurious 'GranLusso, the sportier 'GranSport, and finally the top-of-the-line 'GranSport GTS.
In all variants, customers can expect to find a new front bumper, a revised grille, larger side vents, and stylish chrome strips. Designed for clients seeking a stylish appearance, the GranLusso trim level adds chrome-trimmed bumper inserts, body-colored lower front bumper elements, a body-colored rear spoiler, and 20-inch wheels.
Among the key exterior features of the sportier GranSport and GranSport GTS trims are a restyled rear bumper with black accents above the quad exhausts, Piano Black spoiler, 21-inch wheels with red brake calipers, and blue detailing on the front 'Trident badge.
