Italian luxury car manufacturer Maserati announced the launch of its Quattroporte diesel in India. The 2019 version is built to offer improved refinement levels in the flagship Maserati sedan. It gets new colours, wheel designs and interior veneers, redesigned gearshift lever and Pieno Fiore natural leather interiors. Notably, Bollywood actress Sunny Leone owns a previous generation version of the Quattroporte.
The 2019 model is offered in GranLusso and GranSport trims, representing the perfect blend of luxury and performance. At front, it has a dominant, powerful nose sculpted around the Alfieri-shaped 3D grille, which is pointed and imposing, featuring vertical chrome rib elements that contrast with the depth of the ‘sharknose’ effect.
