What’s Italian for Porsche Macan? The upcoming Maserati Grecale.
Although there’s a fence and other Stellantis vehicles obscuring our view, this is our first look at the upcoming crossover’s production-ready body.
The platform will be retired in the near future, as Alfa Romeo moves to an electrified Stellantis platform.
Despite the common platform and a shared factory in Cassino, Italy, the Grecale is expected to differ significantly from its similarly-sized but cheaper sibling.
Rumours indicate the Grecale will use Maserati engines, possibly including a detuned version of the Nettuno V6 from the MC20 supercar.
These options will be joined later by a pure electric model. Adorned with the Folgore badge, the Grecale EV will be the company’s first electric model with significant sales potential.
The desire for aerodynamic efficiency has probably dictated the adoption of largely flush-fitting door handles — or maybe Maserati just wants to be on-trend.
As we would expect from the brand, the Grecale has a smoothly-detailed exterior.
On the inside the new crossover has the company’s signature clock mounted in the centre of the dashboard top.
It’s likely the Grecale will feature a touchscreen powered by the uConnect 5 infotainment system, which is based Google’s Android OS, and supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay mirroring.
