The next generation of Maserati is quite confident in all weather, including snow…as it was spotted sporting layers in Sweden, making it difficult to determine exactly what it will look like naked! It is truly a shame that our Maserati rentals in South Florida will never experience the challenges of ice and snow, looks fun!
2014 Maserati Quattroporte spied testing
There are other photos showing the next Quattroporte, codenamed M156, but they offer the same views. While the prototype isn’t giving too much away, it appears slightly larger with a plunging roofline similar to the Audi A7. It will be interesting to see if this will be a 4-door or hatchback style Maserati, as there is much competition from leading luxury brands in both layouts.
This looks like a tough job…testing new Maserati cars in the snow! *end sarcasm
The new Quattroporte will compete directly with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7-Series. The powertrain may be a return of the 4.7-liter V8 with 475 horses. Judging by the all-weather testing, it is very likely that it will feature all-wheel drive, which is a nice option for those in northern climates.
What features do you think the M156 needs to compete with other brands?
