Four years ago, when Maserati launched the Ghibli it blew us away with its combination of good looks, performance and pricing. We were so impressed with this potentially game-changing saloon that we chose it as the wheels Car of the Year.

Now, the Italian carmaker has debuted the Ghibli GranLusso, which is essentially a mid-life update with slight styling changes and technological upgrades.

Cosmetic changes are mild and subtle, and include a restyled front bumper with chrome inserts and chrome bars in the front grille. The rear bumper also gets a minor design tweak, and a body-coloured rear extractor.

Although modest, these changes give a sharper look to the model, says Maserati. Well, we think even without these changes, the Ghibli looked extremely sharp for a four-year-old model.

The tech upgrades include adaptive LED Headlights with anti-glare matrix high-beam along with a host of active driver assist systems aimed at giving the Ghibli the ability to drive part-autonomously.

There are no changes in the mechanical bits, with the same 3.0-litre biturbo V6 in 345bhp and 404bhp guises under the bonnet.
