February 5, 2016 – We don’t normally feature luxury vehicles here (instead focusing mainly on Class 3-8 work trucks), but in light of it recently establishing a direct presence in Canada, consider checking out Maserati Canada at this year’s Canadian Int’l Auto Show, which runs February 12-21, 2016, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
At the auto show’s Auto Exotica exhibit, Maserati Canada will debut its latest novelty—custom silk interiors fashioned by Ermenegildo Zegna—now available on its 2016 sport sedans. Designed in collaboration with the Italian fashion brand, “these silk interiors are specially outfitted and woven, much like a fine Italian suit,” says Maserati adding that this tailored interior option will eventually extend to the full Maserati range.
Maserati also introduces new enhanced safety and convenience features to its expanded range of sedans, such as Start & Stop System, Blind Spot & Rear Cross Path Alert, Power Trunk Lid/Hands Free feature, Harman Kardon 900W audio system, Clari-Fi on Bowers & Wilkins sound system, SIRI Smart Personal Assistant and a new wheel collection.
The brand has maintained solid sales momentum since 2013, says the car maker, following the entry of its Ghibli (pictured) starting at $83,900. The AWD Ghibli S Q4 sport sedan ($92,950) and the flagship Quattroporte S Q4 executive sports sedan ($121,400)—both equipped with Q4 4WD technology—are also gaining traction in the region, adds Maserati.
