The Maserati GranTurismo interior redesign in itself is drop-dead gorgeous and we wouldn’t think any less of you if you fell in love with it based on its looks alone. The appealing looks are further enhanced with the seductive curves and sporty aggression. With nine years now on its shadows, the vehicle has still managed to remain a desirable object both in function and appearance.

There’s no denying the fact that nine years is an eternity in autodom especially considering the level of competition that continues to rise each passing year. Some of the features that make the GranTurismo trail the rest in its class include mediocre performance numbers, and a dated infotainment system. On the upside, though, the vehicle comes laden with well-padded and shaped front seats, sharp handling, a high-revving Ferrari sourced V8, and adjustable Skyhook suspension system.

Some of the rivals to expect in this segment include the “A” rated Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe, BMW X6, and the Porsche 911.

The 2017 BMW X6 redesign has brought with it features such as powerful engines, ample storage, top-quality interior, and comfortable and hush ride quality. In terms of power, the most powerful model – 2017 BMW X6 xDrive50i generates a breathtaking 445 horsepower and 480 lbs. ft. of torque from the available turbocharged 4.4L V8 engine. For all these specs and more, you get it from an MSRP starting from $60,600, which is a bargain considering the newest Maserati GranTurismo coupe price starts from $132,825.

New 2017 Maserati Ghibli Release Date and Review

With an Italian flare and performance, the newest Maserati Ghibli is without a doubt a standout in its class. However, its disappointing interior technologies may keep away from realizing the American dream. The Maserati Ghibli USA release date should be expected in the second half of 2017.

Some of its highlights for 2017 include an artificial steering wheel, a fit and finish cabin, comfortable and spacious interior, exquisite tailpipe, and a sharp handling. Additionally, it comes with a Zegna package that offers unique interior trim flourishes and color options.

Even as await the release of the new model, Maserati says the long awaited 2017 Maserati Alfieri will also be with us even sooner than the Ghibli. Maserati says the new Alfieri coupe release date will probably take place mid this year as a 2017 year model. It will be powered by a turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine rated at 404 horsepower. The more powerful option, according to them, will provide a whopping 510 horsepower. Additional 2017 Maserati Ghibli specs will, of course, be known on its release date.

The Maserati Ghibli interior is as comfortable as ever, the seats are supportive and comfortable. Throw in some Italian flare inside and out, and an affordable price tag and you’ve got yourself a stylish, contemporary vehicle. Even so, not everything in the Ghibli is a bed of roses lest you think it’s devoid of foibles. Just as before, the new model lacks advanced safety features and the control features aren’t as well-crafted as those of the German marques.

Therefore, it would be judicious to check what other vehicles in its class offer. Rivals include the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, Audi A7, Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, BMW 5 Series, and Audi A6.

2017 Maserati Quattroporte  Release Date, News and Rumors

Although the new 2017 Maserati Quattroporte in its segment for its Italian flair, it still trails behind its rivals in terms of technology offered. On the upside, though, some of the highlights for the newest Quattroporte model include user-friendly controls, distinctive styling, spacious cabin and engaging handling. The Maserati Quattroporte release date should be expected sometime in the latter half of 2017.

German marques have long dominated the flagship luxury sedan market for quite some time now. While these stalwart competitors undoubtedly deserve the kind of praise they’re constantly heaped with, exuberant alternatives are much better when it comes to precision. Unlike the robotic ride quality you get from the German vehicles, the Quattroporte livens up the stately segment with an Italian flair.

It comes with inspiring Ferrari-sourced engines that offer a sizzling performance ranging from the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 generating 404 hp and 406 lbs. ft. of torque to the 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8 good for 523 horsepower and 524 pounds-ft. of torque. The overall ride quality is impressive as long as you avoid the larger wheel options.

The styling is shapely, comfort is unrivaled and bespoke, and the cabin is pleasantly isolated from the outside world thanks to clever engineering and upscale designs. The seats are specially designed and offer lots of comfort and support.

Sadly, there are various faults that reduce the Quattroporte’s overall design. It lacks advanced safety features, it is more expensive than most of its rivals, the interior lacks the kind of refinement one would expect from such a vehicle, and the infotainment system doesn’t seem to respond as well as mainstream vehicles.

There is no doubt that the Maserati Quattroporte 2017 offers an emotional alternative to the status quo, however, German marques head this class courtesy of the exemplary performance their models offer, albeit cost more. They include the Jaguar XJ, BMW 7 Series, the Porsche Panamera, and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

2017 Maserati Quattroporte Review of Trims

Three trims are offered for the 2017 Maserati Quattroporte: GTS, S Q4, and S. Slight surprises should be expected on its release date.
