2018 Maserati Ghibli revealed in China

Cosmetic changes and autonomous tech introduced

The changes being made to the Maserati Ghibli for 2018 have been revealed with the model making its debut at the weekend in China.

Now known as the ‘Ghibli GranLusso’, Maserati has topped short of making any changes to the engines on offer in the model, and it appears the interior has also been left alone for the new year.

The Italian sports sedan though does get some new technology.

This is led by the inclusion of a new Active Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and Maserati say this allows the brand to enter the world of autonomous driving.

While not yet confirmed, chances are this is a lane-keeping-assist system.

The MY18 Maserati Ghibli GranLusso also gets Adaptive full LED Headlights, which are said to give even better illumination.

Lastly, Maserati has tweaked the styling, swapping in a new front bumper with dedicated chrome inserts and new front grille with chrome bars.

There are also GranLusso badge at the bases of the front fenders, body colour side skirts, a new rear bumper, and new body colour rear extractor.

The styling tweaks are designed to give a sharper look to the model, and improve aerodynamics, according the car maker.

We’ll bring you more details on the 2018 Maserati Ghibli GranLusso, including Australian pricing and specification details, as that info comes to hand.
