2018 MASERATI GHIBLI LAUNCHED IN INDIAPosted On: March 16, 2018 By : AutoLife Team
Maserati has launched the 2018 update for its Ghibli luxury sedan. Unlike the outgoing model that was available in a single trim, the new Ghibli is offered in three variants – Diesel, GranLusso and GranSport. The three can be differentiated visually by the treatment of the front and rear bumpers; the latter two also get more equipment.Under the hood, all three share the same Euro-VI-compliant, 3.0-litre, V6 diesel engine as the previous model. The motor, which features AdBlue and start-stop technology, produces 275hp and 600Nm of peak torque, and is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to the rear wheels.On the eco front, the engine is now Euro 6 compliant and puts out 6 per cent lower harmful emissions. The body of the 2018 Maserati Ghibli has been optimised and is now 7 per cent more aerodynamically efficient. An active exhaust gives the Ghibli a pronounced growl from the V6 engine. For 2018 model year, the sedan also receives a full-LED headlamp setup. It also receives electronic power steering (EPS). The 2018 Ghibli also boasts some level of autonomous driving technology with the Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS).
