The Italian luxury-performance carmaker, Maserati, on Tuesday unveiled its entry-level SUV, the Grecale, in three trim levels with three engine options. Developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab in Modena, the new SUV is manufactured at the Cassino plant.

The SUV features the brand's new design language, with the face being derived from the MC20 featuring a set of high mounted headlights and a low mounted grille. At the rear, it features boomerang taillights inspired by the Giugiaro 3200 GT. In addition, the lower half of the body features carbon-fibre panels for a more aesthetic look.

The entry-level GT trim is powered by a four-cylinder mild-hybrid engine capable of delivering 300 hp, while the Modena comes with a four-cylinder 330-hp mild-hybrid engine.

The top of the line Trofeo trim is powered by the 3.0L 530-hp petrol V6 based on the Nettuno engine fitted to the MC20. With the V6, the company claims a top speed of 285 kmph while a 0-100 kph time of 3.8 seconds.

Rivalling the likes of the Porsche Macan, the new SUV measures at 4,846 mm in length with a wheelbase of 2,901 mm, a height of 1,670 mm, a width of 2,163 mm (including wing mirrors), with a rear-wheel track of 1,948 mm. 

In the Trofeo avatar, the SUV gains some extra wheel track. The company claims best-in-class space with 570L of boot space and 13L of interior space.

On the inside, it comes with a digital clock, a 12.3 inch TFT digital instrument cluster, 12.3-inch central infotainment touch screen with Maserati Intelligent Assistant (MIA) Multimedia system with voice control, an 8.8-inch control touch screen for air-con controls and rear-seat entertainment screens.

Furthermore, it also features Head-up-display, 14 or 21 speakers (depending on the trim level) Sonus Faber 3D sound system, among others.

The SUV also comes with Vehicle Dynamic Control Module allowing the driver to choose between five different drive modes, including Comfort, GT, Sport, Corsa (Trofeo only) and Off-Road.

Maserati aims to launch the BEV variant of its entry-level SUV, the Grecale Folgore, with 400V technology, making it the first BEV from the brand
