On a macro level, the Maseratis are mostly the same—there are no radical redesigns or powertrain changes to speak of. Instead, Maserati made minor tweaks inside and out to ensure the cars were all recognizable as a part of the brand’s current family tree. To that end, every vehicle in the Maserati lineup gets a new front grille with vertical slats designed to look like a tuning fork. The grille itself will be available in chrome on GranLusso trims or black on GranSport trims.
Out back, the Levante, Quattroporte, and Ghibli also receive redesigned taillights. Though not matchy matchy as the trio’s shared grille design, the taillights on all three Maseratis feature a similar sort of “boomerang design” to their lighting elements. The new tails will be standard across all trims for the three cars, and Maserati says the design has been inspired by Maeratis of the past.
Beyond those small exterior changes, the Ghibli sedan remains largely the same for 2021. The differences between GranLusso and GranSport trims are also unchanged, meaning the former keeps its chrome inserts in the front bumper, GranLusso badge on the front fender, black brake calipers, and 19-inch wheels. The GrandSport trim, by contrast, wears a more aggressive front bumper with black inserts, 20-inch wheels, GranSport badging, and red brake callipers.
As for the Ghibli’s bigger sibling, the Quattroporte, GranSport trims separate themselves from the GranLusso with a more perforated front bumper for better cooling, a slightly more aggressive rear, the use of black trim instead of chrome, and a black lip spoiler on the trunk. The story is much the same for the Levante, where the differences between GranSport and GranLusso are similarly carried over from 2020.
Inside all three Masers, however, is a new infotainment system powered by Android’s operating system. The newest iteration of Maserati Intelligent Assist (MIA) rests within a 10.1-inch, nearly bezel-free display in the sedans and an 8.4-inch screen in the Levante SUV. The new MIA features a higher resolution with new graphics and promises to be “higher-performing” than the unit it replaces. There’s also a new Maserati Connect program, which will keep owners updated on their car’s health, alerting them when service is needed and in the event that the car is stolen.
Lastly, Maserati has made some changes to the instrument binnacle that sits in front of the driver. The tachometer and speedo are larger with fresh graphics for 2021, and much of the plastic that used to surround them has been done away with in favor of a glass covering.
