Maserati Grecale

(2022 - present)

    Summary


    The Maserati Grecale is a premium medium SUV, launched in early 2022 and based on the same platform as the the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and the latest Jeep Grand Cherokee.

    Sitting below the larger Levante in Maserati’s SUV line-up, the Grecale is the Italian brand’s first attempt at producing a rival for the Porsche MacanJaguar F-Pace and BMW X3.

    The range includes two petrol engine options at launch. The volume seller will be a 300hp four-cylinder unit, while the top-end choice is a 530hp petrol V6, which is a modified version of the engine found in the Maserati MC20 supercar. An all-electric variant, called the ‘Grecale Folgore’, is expected in 2024.

    Somewhat influenced by “the romance of the brand’s history”, Autocar concludes that the Maserati Grecale certainly isn’t without appeal, and is a rather sensible leftfield choice. “It’s extremely practical, and that engine can lift spirits and deliver a truly crushing turn of speed.”

    Carwow praises the SUV’s android-based infotainment system, while Car Keys says that the Grecale’s interior “feels like a big step forward for Maserati, both in terms of quality and technology.”

    That said, while many reviewers agree that the SUV’s interior is on par with its German rivals, a number of journalists comment that Grecale’s driving dynamics are a few steps behind the likes of the Porsche Macan.

    Auto Express explains that “it could be more polished”, pointing to the Grecale’s firm suspension, while other outlets expected the car’s exterior styling to be a bit more exciting.

    However, The Sunday Times sums up its review by saying that these are only minor issues, and that “if you’re hooked on the Maserati badge, you won’t have too much to complain about.”

    As of September 2023, the Maserati Grecale holds an Expert Rating of 62%, based on 18 reviews published by the UK media to date.

    The Maserati Grecale is a rather expensive car to own and run, according to whole-life cost numbers provided exclusively to The Car Expert by our data partner, Clear Vehicle Data.

    Fuel consumption is poor, falling in the bottom 20% of all cars in our database, while insurance premiums are likely to be very high. Servicing and maintenance costs over the first five years are also higher then most cars, which is not surprising for a vehicle at this price point.
