Maserati GranTurismo debuts with subtle updates

2018 Maserati GranTurismo Can You Spot the Teeny Tiny Updates to the Maserati GranTurismo for 2018?

Maserati has altered the range too, dropping the regular 4.2-litre GranTurismo model so that the line-up now consists of just the MC Stradale and Sport versions.

The 2018 GranTurismo, along with the rest of the Maserati portfolio, was shown today outside of the New York Stock Exchange, where Maserati brand boss Reid Bigland had the honor of ringing the closing bell on Tuesday. As a result, the starting price - as yet undisclosed - will rise.

Maserati has opted to take styling inspiration from the spectacular Alfieri concept, adding a new front end with slightly different grille, now hexagonal instead of the predecessor's oval shape.

Power is provided by a naturally-aspirated 4.7-liter V8 engine that is hand-built by Ferrari and produces 460 PS (338 kW) and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque. The V8 is mated to a six-speed ZF automatic transmission.

Remember 1962, withdraw troops, China warns India
The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, however, maintained that "Doklam has been a part of China since ancient times". The demarche was served through the Chinese embassy in New Delhi as Bhutan and China do not have diplomatic relations.

Maserati has also improved the Granturismo's aerodynamic performance, using lower air ducts to reduce its drag coefficient from 0.33Cd to 0.32Cd. Maserati also says the GranTurismo gets a redesigned rear bumper, but we don't know what that looks like, since the automaker has only released pictures of the front of the auto.

The biggest change to the interior com in the way of Maserati's new 8.4-inch high-resolution touchscreen, which supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Lastly, the centre console has been mildly redesigned with new switchgear.

Is the Maserati GranTurismo on your Grand Tourer shortlist? There's a new aluminium double rotary control knob, while the driving mode buttons have been placed lower on the console, nearer the gear lever. Let us know in the comments.
