Grecale blows in from Modena

Maserati has revealed its second SUV, the Grecale, which aims to deliver unique design and competitive performance

Grecale might be the name for a Mediterranean wind, but Maserati has had a few headwinds to contend with when it comes to launching its latest SUV. The Giorgio platform on which it is based has been canned by parent company Stellantis after spending €1-billion developing it, the pandemic has held things up and then the semi-conductor chip crisis delayed things even more. 

Finally though, Maserati has been able to reveal its new Grecale to the world and we get to tell you what we learned about it during a design and technology workshop late in 2021. It’s a compact performance SUV designed and engineered to compete with rivals like the Porsche Macan and Maserati’s head of design, Klaus Busse, says it will do so partly through four main pillars of design.
