Maserati has taken the wraps off the 2016 Ghibli and Quattroporte.

Currently on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the updated sedans feature new Euro6 petrol engines with start / stop technology.  Their performance specifications remain unchanged but the new engines are up to 12% more fuel-efficient than their predecessors.

Diesel variants aren't left out either as they have been equipped with AdBlue technology.  Despite this, the company says performance, emissions and fuel-economy numbers remain unchanged.

Besides the updated engines, the 2016 Ghibli and Quattroporte gain a variety of new options including Blind Spot Alert, Rear Cross Path (which alerts drivers to oncoming vehicles when reversing out of a parking spot) and a power-operated trunk which can be opened or closed by simply moving your foot underneath the rear bumper.  Other updates include Siri compatibility, a new 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system (optional on the Ghibli and standard on the Quattroporte) and an improved Bowers & Wilkins premium audio system.
