From the triple air vents in the front wing to the triangular C-pillar, there are many thoughtful design cues to remind you of Maserati’s rich heritage. Yet it’s to the credit of the Maserati design team that the design of the Quattroporte Diesel manages to be both original and authentic. The snarling grille is dominated by the Maserati trident badge and flanked by LED-lined headlights which merge into the line of the front wings. The profile is clean, curvaceous and dominated by the strong bonnet line, emphasising the Maserati performance heritage.
The interior expresses contemporary luxury through the use of fine materials and restrained design. The dashboard, divided horizontally into three levels, features a broad central band across the entire width of the car, with the large Maserati Touch Control touchscreen display in the middle. It feels like every surface that’s not trimmed in fine wood is covered in soft Poltrona Frau® leather. Maserati claim the result is like an exclusive lounge, and the cabin of the Quattroporte is certainly a delightful place in which to spend a long journey.
