The Grecale is an attractive SUV that shares its platform with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, and it has certainly better-looking language than the Levante. Also, it has a unique engine lineup that consists of a few powerful engines. The highlight is definitively a model that comes with a fully electric powertrain.
2023 Maserati Grecale Design
Like the Levante SUV, the forthcoming 2023 Maserati Grecale is sporty and modern. In general, it is certainly better-looking than the Levante thanks to a new Maserati’s design language. We love every detail on this SUV, especially the convex grille and sporty fender vents.
Unlike its sibling Levante, the Grecale is about 6 inches shorter in length an is only an inch shorter in height. Also, its wheelbase is 4 inches shorter, which’s putting its size just between Porsche’s Cayenne and Macan.
First Look Inside
On the inside, the new 2023 Maserati Grecale looks pretty sporty and stylish. Maserati reported that the Grecale has more passenger space and cargo room than its closest rivals, the Macan and the Mercedes GLC. The spacious interior is nearly as big as the Levante’s.
On the technology side, as standard equipment, the new SUV includes a Android-based infotainment setup with the upper screen that measures 12.3 inches. However, there is also a lower 8.8-inch screen, which is mostly focused on climate controls and other vehicle settings.
