The fuel consumption rating is 6.2 l/100 km on the combined cycle.

Thanks to the Maserati Active Sound technology the Quattroporte Turbo Diesel exhaust system produces a characteristic Maserati sound that underlines the sporting nature of the car and can be varied at the touch of a button. Two sound actuators, fitted near the exhaust tailpipes, accentuate the engineís most distinctive tones and modulate them according to the way the car is being driven. When the driver presses the Sport button the sound becomes even more resonant.

Inside and out the Maserati Quattroporte Turbo Diesel is lavishly equipped and finished with the only differences external differences between the GTS, S and D versions of the Quattroporte are wheel size and the shape of the exhaust pipe outlets.

The new Maserati Quattroporte debuts not just a new and unique to Maserati platform, but also a new petrol engine range and new turbo diesel engine developed specifically for Maserati, along with a new variant of the ZF eight speed gearbox. The suspension, the brakes, the interior are all new, as is its body that blends aluminium and steel for strength and lightness.
