Maserati has launched the updated 2021 Ghibli range in India, prices starting at Rs 1.15 crore, ex-showroom. This price represents the new base model in the lineup, a 2.0-litre hybrid with 330PS/450Nm. The next model in the lineup is the 3.0-litre V6 with 430PS/580Nm, priced at Rs 1.51 crore. The flagship Ghibli is the newly added Trofeo model priced at Rs 1.93 crore, with a 3.8-litre V8 making 580PS/730Nm, capable of a top speed of 326kmph and a 4.3s 0-100kmph run. All Ghibli models are exclusively rear-wheel driven, and mated to an eight-speed automatic, while a diesel option is no longer available.
The 2021 Ghibli models feature standard adaptive LED matrix headlights, a tweaked front grille, and restyled LED lighting elements in the tail lights, apart from new wheel options. The interiors feature a larger 10.1-inch central touchscreen (up from 8.4-inches), as well as Maserati Connect tech, also accessible via Alexa or Google Assistant.
The other big addition comes in the inclusion of Level 2 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), including lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, blind spot assist and emergency autonomous braking capabilities.

Speaking specifics of the new base model, a 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder petrol combined with a 48V belt starter generator system uses its total of 330PS and 450Nm to get the Ghibli from 0-100kmph in 5.7s (0.7s quicker than the previous Ghibli diesel), and onto a top speed of 255kmph. Meanwhile, fuel efficiency is claimed to be 20 per cent better than the previous Ghibli V6 petrol. The system also contributes electric boost torque when required, while the convertor and battery are placed in the trunk of the car. The Ghibli Hybrid features blue detailing around the car to help distinguish itself from the rest of the range.
