Maserati’s plans to boost sales to 50,000 units annually has hit a snag. The automaker is facing slowing demand in the key market of China and plans for a redesigned GranTurismo as well as a new sports car based on 2014’s Alfieri concept have been pushed back.

That doesn’t mean we haven’t been treated with new product. Maserati has just added the Levante, its first ever SUV, and both the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans have been given updates over the years to keep them fresh among a sea of strong contenders, mostly from German brands.

Here’s what shoppers stepping into a Maserati showroom can expect for 2017:
