Pricing and specifications for the 2021 Maserati Quattroporte have been revealed, with a spate of subtle styling and tech updates introduced for the new year.

Up front, Maserati's flagship sedan picks up a new grille – this is finished in chrome on GranLusso vehicles or piano black on GranSport variants.

At the rear end, the Quattroporte also incorporates the brand's new 'boomerang' tail-light cluster, which draws inspiration from the 3200 GT of the 1990s.

Moving inside the cabin, the central infotainment screen now measures 10.1 inches corner-to-corner (up from 8.4 inches on outgoing models) – this runs on Maserati's updated Android-based operating system, and features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

A reworked instrument cluster now sits behind the steering wheel, and comprises an all-new 7.0-inch TFT display alongside an analog speedometer and tachometer.

All updated Quattroporte models also now feature the brand's Active Driving Assist, which works with the adaptive cruise control system to centre the car in its lane and maintain a safe distance from the car in front, at speeds up to 145km/h.

Two powertrain options – both derived from the same 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 – are presently on offer.

The entry-level unit – available in base, GranLusso or GranSport trim – produces 257kW and 500Nm, sent to the road via an eight-speed automatic transmission. It permits acceleration from zero to 100km/h in a claimed 5.5 seconds.

Meanwhile, the uptuned S variants (available only in GranLusso or GranSport form) develop 316kW and 580Nm – enough to launch the car from zero to 100km/h in a claimed 5.0 seconds.

A V8-powered Trofeo model will join the range in the coming months.
