The Ghibli Diesel boasts a maximum torque of 600 Nm between 2,000 and 2,600 rpm with over-boost turbocharging. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h. This engine produces a power output of 275 horse power, while still achieving a CO2 emissions of 158 g/km. Combined fuel consumption of 5.9 litres/100 km and a 70-litre tank ensure a long range of over 1,000 kilometres, makes the Ghibli Diesel a car that serves customer needs for long-distance travel.

The Ghibli GranLusso is distinguished by enhanced exterior finish and an option of luxurious interior with Ermenegildo Zegna silk upholstery; the Ghibli GranSport was conceived to reflect Maserati’s racing heritage displaying sportier exterior design and interior contents said the company in a statement.

Commenting on this, Mr. Bojan Jankulovski, Head of Operations, Maserati India said, “The new Ghibli stands out for its bold design and progressive technology. And, since the Ghibli has proved to be really successful for Maserati over the years, the new upgraded version will further enable us to pursue its success story.”

This is the third new launch from Maserati in 2018, following the introduction of Maserati Quattroporte GTS and its super sports utility vehicle, the Levante earlier in the year.

The first diesel engine in Maserati’s history, the 2018 Ghibli is powered with a 3.0-litre V6 with Common-Rail direct injection exclusively developed by Maserati in collaboration with VM Motori. The Euro 6 homologated unit includes AdBlue technology and Auto Start-Stop to reduce overall fuel and CO2 emissions by up to 6%. An Active Sound System gives the V6 engine a thrilling exhaust growl.

The Maserati Design Centre in Turin has given a clear identity to each of the newly-introduced trims, primarily by restyling the front and rear bumpers. The aerodynamic efficiency of the new Ghibli has improved by 7%, reducing the drag coefficient to 0.29 from 0.31, claims the company.

The 2018 Ghibli was the first Maserati to be fitted with Adaptive full LED headlights with glare free Matrix high-beam, standard in GranLusso and GranSport variants.

Apart from host of safety, comfort & interior features, the Skyhook suspension system has become a standard in India due to the poor road infrastructure. The new Ghibli has also adopted the Integrated Vehicle Control system (IVC), which helps to prevent vehicle instability, providing enhanced active safety, improved driving dynamics and an even more thrilling performance.

The introduction of the Electric Power Steering (EPS) will improve the car’s handling and comfort, better support the driving modes and enable the newly-introduced active functions of the Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS), while retaining the Maserati steering feel.
