The 2017 Maserati Ghibli and Ghibli S are now available in Malaysia, officially by Naza Italia. The revised saloon made its debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show with unchanged looks but additional features.
Inside, the 2017 Ghibli’s dashboard has been redesigned to accommodate a high-res 8.4-inch screen with multi touch technology. The latest infotainment system is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and features a rotary knob on the centre console to control the main functions.
The Italian sedan is now available with the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) package, which includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Blind Spot Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning with Advanced Brake Assist, and Automated Emergency Braking. An additional Surround View Camera is available in combination with ADAS.
Maserati says that the baby Quattroporte has improved aero-acoustic comfort and noise insulation, and an Air Quality Sensor is now standard fit. Luxury and Sport packages are available for the Ghibli.
Luxury comes with Zegna Edition Silk and Premium Leather upholstery while Sport brings new sports seats and a sports steering wheel with aluminium shift paddles. Two Carbon packages, one with exterior and the other with interior elements, are now available as a further customisation, if you chose Sport in the first place.
The subtle improvements are joined by more power under the hood. The Ghibli and Ghibli S are powered by a 3.0 litre twin-turbo V6 engine with start-stop, mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. The base car now pushes out 350 hp and 500 Nm, 20 hp more than the previous model year. 0-100 km/h is done in just 5.5 seconds on to a higher top speed of 267 km/h. That’s should be enough for most; if not, the 410 hp/550 Nm Ghibli S does 5.0 seconds and 285 km/h.
The 2017 Maserati Ghibli starts from RM618,800 while the Ghibli S is yours from RM708,800, including Malaysian duties and applicable taxes. Prices also include a three-year, 60,000 km service package.
