Maserati Grecale review – design

The Grecale is classy, handsome and more subdued than the Stelvio Quadrifoglio, even if there’s a whiff of Ford Puma about it

Evo rating

It's an unfortunate coincidence that Maserati’s spangly new SUV has shades of Ford Puma about it, because by and large, the Grecale is a handsome car. This is a much more successful application of Maserati's core design cues than we saw with the Levante, which can look bloated and heavy handed from certain angles.

The Grecale's overall proportions and glasshouse closely resemble the Alfa Stelvio with which it shares its platform, but the similarities end there. The brand's corporate face has been applied to the front with GranTurismo-style headlights and a Trident grille, along with the triple front wing vents that have been a fixture on Maseratis for decades. 

Modena and Trofeo models get rear wheel arch extensions for a wider stance, and while there isn't the visual aggression of a Stelvio Quadrifoglio or the muscle of an F-Pace SVR, the Grecale sits quite nicely in its class as a more reserved yet obviously premium SUV. The Trofeo gets squared-off quad tailpipes to denote it as the flagship, but it otherwise flies under the radar.
