Maserati has released the first images and details of its updated Ghibli, now known as the Maserati Ghibli GranLusso, with a full unveiling to take place at the Chengdu Motor Show in China.

Headlining the mid-life refresh for Maserati’s 5 Series and E-Class rival is the introduction of new active Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). Although the Italian automaker hasn’t detailed the extent of the systems, it has released a statement saying the new features will allow the brand “to enter the world of autonomous driving.”

With Maserati currently offering features like lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warning as optional equipment on the base model Ghibli in Australia, there’s significant room for improvement when compared to the semi-autonomous features available from brands brands like Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and BMW.

As well as the ADAS upgrade, the 2018 Ghibli GranLusso will showcase a redesigned front bumper with new chrome inserts and a fresh grille design with vertical bars, echoing the look of the Levante SUV and refreshed Quattroporte and GranTurismo.

New adaptive LED headlights with glare-free matrix high-beam technology, new body coloured side skirts and rear lower bumper, and GranLusso badging for the front guards round-out the styling changes, and Maserati claims a significant improvement to aerodynamic performance.

Maserati hasn’t detailed any interior changes, though it seems likey the Ghibli will adopt the latest version of the 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system as seen in the Quattroporte, along with minor tweaks to trims and finishes.
