The changes to the car’s exterior are small and comprise restyled bumpers, a more angular front grille with new vertical chrome slats and a matte black finish for body trim.
Inside there’s a new infotainment system housed in an 8.4in touchscreen and featuring a rotary knob in the centre console. Maserati says it has been able to remove buttons from the dash with this new system, giving the cabin a cleaner, less cluttered look.
The new infotainment system is smartphone compatible using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The 2016 model is claimed to be more potent and fuel efficient than ever, and it comes with a choice of turbocharged diesel and petrol V6s and a turbocharged petrol V8 that offer better straight-line performance and increased fuel efficiency compared with the outgoing model.
These gains have come in part thanks to a new electric air shutter, which opens and closes parts of the car’s front grille to improve aerodynamic efficiency by 10%, but also thanks to an increase in power for the base petrol 3.0-litre V6 engine.
