The new generation of the Maserati Quattroporte has been officially presented to the public during the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
The 2014 Maserati Quattroporte is larger than the model it’s replacing and the model has received a styling inspired by the GranTurismo which will definitely make it more appealing to its future customers in a segment dominated by Germans. The cabin of the 2014 Maserati Quattroporte has a stylish design and it’s coming with goodies such as the Wi-Fi hotspot, the Bowers and Wilkins audio system, and with other features which will most likely be appreciated by its future owners.
The entry-level version of the Maserati Quattroporte is getting the 3.0 liter twin-turbo V6 engine which is producing a total output of 410 HP (310 kW) and 406 lb-ft of torque (550 Nm), which is allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 177 mph (285 km/h).
