The Maserati Grecale has been photographed for the first time by company staff members. The images reveal little details as they are heavily blurred together with camouflage wrapping on the prototype vehicles.
The Grecale, a north-east wind of the Mediterranean Sea, continues the marques long-standing tradition of using names of strong winds for its cars.
The prototype cars are currently undergoing a period of intensive road, circuit and off-road tests, in various conditions of use, to acquire vital data for the preparation of the new SUV’s final setup.
The Grecale is reported to be positioned below the Levante SUV and as such, will challenge the likes of the Porsche Macan, Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe and BMW X4.
The new model will be built in Cassino, Italy, where the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is also being produced. The company has said to have invested approximately 800 million Euro for the creation of a new production line.
Maserati is expecting to launch the Grecale by the end of 2021.
In Malaysia, Maserati recently introduced the Levante S GranSport Ermenegildo Zegna Pelletessuta edition that is limited to just five units, priced from RM838,800.
