The news from Maserati this holiday season is all about tech. The company is investing in Google’s Android-based automotive software for the 2021 iterations of the entry-level Ghibli and the full-sized Quattroporte sedan.
The changes buttress a suite of interior updates for the two models, including the introduction of a new, brighter instrument cluster, and the scrapping of the old 8.4-inch touchscreen for a newly-designed 10.1-inch unit. As an option, buyers can opt for Maserati’s Connect, an app that allows smart device control as well as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant operation. All screens and gauges are higher resolution than previous units.
The Maserati Levante gets a few of the updates, as well. It keeps the existing touchscreen, but boosts the resolution to stay in line with the Ghibli and Quattroporte. All three Maserati models also receive an updated driver assist feature called Advanced Driving Assist, as well as exterior styling alterations that include a new grille design.
