The Ghibli Diesel's design strongly reflects its sporting pedigree
The Ghibli Diesel, the first ever Maserati diesel-powered car, still has a strong, unmistakable sporting pedigree: this is obvious right away the thanks to the coupé-like streamlined silhouette, the narrow windows and the very pronounced triangular C-pillar. Its dynamic profile is emphasised by the sculpted forms of the mudguards, which blend into a central form with clearly defined linking lines.
The front of the car is dominated by the distinctive Maserati radiator grille, with concave vertical fillets inspired by the GranTurismo and the A6 GCS Berlinetta, a famous icon from the past. The matt black finish of these features contrasts with the chromed surround.
The triangular C-pillar and frameless door windows give the car the look of a sleek coupé, even though its length and wheelbase are amongst the longest in the class. The tapered design of the boot is the natural continuation of the cabin, while the two LED lights provide continuity with the mudguards.
The Maserati Ghibli's unique personality is also expressed by its interior: the soft leather of the seat upholstery can also be used on the dashboard and doors, plain surfaces on which original two-tone combinations can be created for a more sporty or elegant interior.
Underneath the engine hood there is a 3 litre V6 unit incorporating all the benefits of the very latest diesel engine technology. The engine is still very much in keeping with the Maserati tradition thanks to its sporty temperament and 275 CV, which enables the car to surge from 0 to 62 mph in 6.3 seconds.
The performance figures speak volumes about the excellent efficiency of the engine, which is reflected even more clearly by its fuel consumption and emissions data: 47.8 mpg and 158 g/km in the combined cycle are extremely impressive values, achieved partly thanks to the Stop&Start system.
The Maserati Ghibli Diesel benefits from the potential of a next-generation eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. There are five operating modes: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport and I.C.E. (Increased Control & Efficiency).
