After four years of existence, the Maserati Ghibli got its first major update. The Italian sedan is now called the Ghibli GranLusso and gets a few design tweaks and added features. The new Ghibli GranLusso will be showcased at the Chengdu Motor Show which starts on 3 September.

The most prominent design tweaks include a chrome treatment on the fascia. The iconic Maserati grille is now done in chrome. There are additional chrome inserts on the bumper vents. The rear bumper gets a blink-and-miss update. There are ‘GranLusso’ badges on the front fenders as well. Maserati claims that the design tweaks have also “contributed to a substantial improvement of the aerodynamic efficiency”.

Apart from the styling update, the GranLusso debuts features such as adaptive full-LED headlights with glare free ‘matrix high-beam’. Maserati has also fitted the new GranLusso Ghibli with new ADAS (active driver assistance systems). The Modena-based carmaker says that this driver assist system will allow the carmaker ‘to enter the world of autonomous driving.”

The interior and the mechanicals remain unchanged. Under the sculpted hood, there is a choice of two engine options. The 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 petrol and diesel engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
