Safety Features of the 2017 Maserati Ghibli
The 2017 Maserati Ghibli is the ultimate luxury sports sedan, with its striking Italian styling, upscale features, and impressive performance that make the car a joy to drive. When you drive the Ghibli you’ll also have the peace of mind of knowing it’s packed with all the latest safety features to help you avoid accidents and protect you in the event of a collision. The 2017 Ghibli has good crash test ratings and head restraint and seating safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Here are some of the Ghibli’s most important safety features.
Air Bags and Safe Seating
The 2017 Maserati Ghibli is equipped with airbags that will help keep you and your passengers safe if a collision occurs. Front-impact airbags will protect the head area of the driver and passenger in a frontal crash. In addition, there are side-impact airbags to protect the torsos of the driver and passenger in the event of a side impact collision. Knee airbags provide additional safety for the legs. Finally, the Ghibli’s overheard airbags will protect occupants’ heads in the event of a crash or rollover accident.
The 2017 Ghibli has anti-whiplash head restraints that counteract collision forces in a rear-impact crash, cradling the head in order to reduce the chances of sustaining a whiplash injury. Seat belt pre-tensioners are in place to tighten seat belts automatically to keep the driver and passengers in the safest body position during a collision.
Accident Avoidance Features
The 2017 Ghibli is equipped with safety features that will help you avoid collisions. Anti-lock brakes will help maintain control and maneuverability in the event of an extreme braking situation. Stability control will also help the driver when the car senses it has exceeded its safe handling capabilities. The car will automatically apply brakes or reduce engine power for the driver to regain control.
The 2017 Maserati Ghibli is also equipped with a backup camera. The backup camera will give you a full view of the rear of the car when in reverse, giving you extra visibility. This can prevent fender benders in tight parking situations and help avoid a collision if the conditions suddenly change when backing up.
The forward collision warning system will monitor the front of the car and notify the driver if a frontal crash may occur. The Ghibli’s automatic braking system will activate when the car senses a collision is imminent and the driver is not responsive to the impact warnings.
The Ghibli’s adaptive cruise control will keep a preset distance from the vehicle ahead of you, giving you the convenience of cruise control while keeping you safe.
Ghibli owners will also enjoy the peace of mind that comes from having a security system. In addition to sounding an alarm in the event of an attempted break-in, the Ghibli’s security system will disable the vehicle if a key other than an original Maserati key is used.
The 2017 Ghibli has all the safety features you want in a luxury car, so you can combine Maserati’s legendary performance and style with the security of knowing you’re fully protected.
