The global debut of the Grecale is likely to be held in the month of March; however, the Italian brand is currently winter testing the upcoming SUV and readying it for Maserati’s global markets.
A prototype of the Maserati Grecale, which is the Italian carmaker’s upcoming compact SUV, has been seen in the cold of the Swedish glades. Maserati is currently winter testing the new SUV in Lapland at -30 degrees celsius. The maker says that this has helped them fine-tune the traction control system and further improve the understeery and over-steery nature of the SUV; especially with varying wheel sizes and driving modes.
The Grecale will share its platform with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, and most likely, the powertrain will be shared as well.
So far there are no technical details available of the Grecale. The SUV was to be unveiled last November 2021, but Maserati pushed the global debut of the new Grecale to the first half of 2022. Let’s just say that this delay has given Maserati enough time to thoroughly ready the Grecale for the global markets.
The Maserati Grecale will eventually make its way to the Indian market – sometime by 2023. The new Italian compact-SUV will be positioned in the segment where we have the Jaguar F-Type, Range Rover Velar, BMW X4, Mercedes-Benz GLE, and Porsche Macan.
For this year, Maserati has plans to launch the Levante Hybrid SUV and the MC20 sportscar. The firm has already started accepting bookings for the Levante Hybrid.
