Design, Practicality and Boot Space

The Grecale exudes a captivating presence, embodying Maserati's signature elegance and sporting prowess. Its exterior design is characterized by a low stance, a muscular silhouette, and a sculpted front fascia featuring the iconic Maserati trident grille. The sloping roofline accentuates the SUV's dynamic stance, while the sleek headlamps and taillights add a touch of sophistication.

Maserati Grecale Exterior

Despite its sporty exterior, the Grecale offers a surprising level of practicality for everyday use. The interior provides ample passenger space, with comfortable seating for five adults. The rear seats feature generous legroom and headroom, even for taller passengers. Additionally, the 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats allow for flexible cargo configurations, accommodating various luggage needs.

The Grecale boasts a generous boot space of 535 litres for the GT and Modena trim levels, extending to 570 litres for the Trofeo model. This puts it among the most spacious SUVs in its class, providing ample room for groceries, luggage, or sporting equipment. The boot features a flat floor and a convenient cargo cover, enhancing practicality.

Interior and Trims

The Grecale boasts an inviting interior characterized by a blend of sophisticated design and high-quality materials. The cabin's appeal surpasses the exterior aesthetics, featuring a well-thought-out arrangement highlighted by a prominent line of vents and various soft-touch elements, creating a pleasing ambience.

The dual screens, initially appearing busy, serve distinct functions. The 8.8-inch lower screen manages climate settings and minor features, while the main 12.3-inch touchscreen handles infotainment, navigation, and car settings. All models come equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

While the touchscreen design streamlines the dashboard by eliminating physical buttons, the practicality of using a touchscreen while driving raises concerns. Adjusting settings like temperature or defrosting requires more attention away from the road compared to a traditional knob.

Three trim levels are available: GT, Modena and Trofeo.

The GT trim is the entry point to the Grecale range, offering a balance of luxury and performance. It comes standard with leather seats, a 10.25-inch touchscreen, and a host of advanced driver-assistance features.

The Modena trim elevates the Grecale experience with premium features such as heated and ventilated seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a 12.3-inch touchscreen. It also offers a more powerful engine option for those who crave enhanced performance.

The Trofeo trim is the ultimate expression of Grecale's performance. It boasts a more powerful engine, a sport-tuned suspension, and unique interior and exterior styling cues that exude a sense of raw power and athleticism.

No matter which trim you choose, the Maserati Grecale's interior is a haven of luxury, technology, and personalization. It's a space where you can relax, enjoy the drive, and appreciate the finer things in life.

Power and Performance

The Maserati Grecale is available in three trim levels, each offering a unique powertrain and performance experience.

The entry-level GT trim is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 296 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. It is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. This powertrain provides ample power for everyday driving and can accelerate the Grecale from 0 to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds. Its top speed is electronically limited to 149 mph.

The Modena trim steps up the performance with a more powerful version of the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 325 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain provides even quicker acceleration, taking the Grecale from 0 to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. The top speed remains electronically limited to 149 mph.

The top-of-the-line Trofeo trim features the most powerful powertrain in the Grecale range, a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 530 horsepower and 453 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain propels the Grecale from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, making it one of the quickest SUVs in its class. The top speed is electronically limited to 160 mph.

Maserati Grecale Interior

Regardless of the trim level you choose, the Maserati Grecale offers a dynamic driving experience that combines agility with comfort. The SUV features a double-wishbone suspension in the front and a multilink suspension in the rear, both tuned for a balance of performance and ride comfort. The Grecale also comes standard with adaptive dampers that adjust the suspension stiffness in real time to optimize handling and comfort.

In addition to its impressive powertrains, the Grecale offers a variety of driving modes that allow you to tailor the SUV's performance to your mood or driving conditions. The modes include Comfort, GT, Sport, and Corsa. Comfort mode prioritizes a smooth and relaxed ride, while GT mode provides a balance of performance and comfort. Sport mode sharpens the throttle response and steering feel for a more engaging driving experience. Corsa mode is the most aggressive setting, optimizing the Grecale for track driving.

Overall, the Maserati Grecale delivers an impressive combination of power, performance, and handling. It's an SUV that is both exciting to drive and comfortable for everyday use, making it an excellent leasing option.
