Facts & Figures: Maserati Grecale now in Malaysia in three variants – GT, Modena & Trofeo



Naza Italia unveiled the first Maserati Grecale in Malaysia today, an all-new SUV range from the Italian marque with three engine variants – the Grecale GT, Grecale Modena, and Grecale Trofeo. The Grecale takes its name from a north-easterly Mediterranean wind.

PERFORMANCE

Grecale GT & Modena

Engine: 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder with MHEV
Drivetrain: All-wheel drive
Transmission: 8-speed automatic
Max Power: 300 hp @ 5,750 rpm (Modena – 330 hp @ 5,750 rpm)
Max Torque: 450 Nm @ 2,000 to 4,000 rpm
0 to 100 km/h: 5.6 secs (Modena – 5.3 secs)

In the Grecale Trofeo, active shock absorbers and air springs are standard but optional in the GT and Modena variants. Also standard in the Grecale Trofeo are Brembo 6-pot brakes in the front and 4-pot at the rear. As a result, the Grecale can get from 100 km/h to 0 in under 40 metres.

EXTERIOR

The Grecale is the first of many to adopt Maserati’s new design language, with headlamps inspired by the MC20 supercar and a taillight design that mimics the 3200 GT from the early 2000s.

  • 19-inch wheels (GT), 20-inch (Modena), 21-inch (Trofeo)
  • LED daytime running lights
  • LED headlights

It should be noted that the Modena and Trofeo are actually 34 mm longer than the GT variant, with specially designed bumpers and side skirts for a sportier look. Only the Trofeo variant comes with air suspension as standard.

INTERIOR

The interior features a digital clock on the dashboard as its centre piece, the first time in a Maserati. The first-ever digital clock also functions as a compass and G-meter.

  • 8.8-inch centre console display
  • 12.3-inch infotainment display
  • Digital instrument cluster
  • Sonus Faber sound system with 14 speakers

The clean minimalist look of the cockpit is also the result of removing most of the physical buttons; almost all the controls are touch-sensitive. A panoramic sunroof can be specified while the doors are opened from the inside using a switch like the new Lexus NX’s e-Latch system.

Prices for the Maserati Grecale have yet to be confirmed so contact Naza Italia – Maserati in Petaling Jaya, Selangor at 03 7956 8599 or 1700 81 5051 for more info on the new SUV.
