Little has changed inside because the model was recently updated with a new infotainment system and dashboard design. That said, the 2018 model does gain a raft of new tech to improve performance and luxury.
New for the facelifted Ghibli is Integrated Vehicle Control, which is claimed to enhance the car's dynamic abilities while maintaining the safety net of ESP.
The car also swaps hydraulic power steering for an electric system, which integrates with driver assist technology such as Highway Assist, Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist. Along with Adaptive Cruise Control and Traffic Sign Recognition, these features come as part of the optional Driver Assistance package.
Like its sibling, the larger Quattroporte, the Ghibli gains GranLusso and GranSport trims (pictured above). The trims will replace the current car’s Luxury and Sport trims. However, prices for them shouldn’t change drastically, meaning the entry-level car will start at about £50,000.
The car’s 3.0-litre V6 diesel and petrol powertrains were recently given extra power, but Maserati has ramped up the output of the latter further with an additional 20bhp and 22lb ft, bringing the figures up to 424bhp and 428lb ft. The diesel sticks with its 271bhp and offers 47.9mpg combined.
