Maserati Grecale to Launch in India in Early 2024

Early in 2024, Maserati plans to release the new Grecale SUV to the Indian market. The Grecale, Maserati’s next SUV, made its world debut in March 2022. There are three models available: GT, Modena, and Trofeo. By the end of 2023, reservations for the vehicle are anticipated to begin. In India, all three versions will be available. The Grecale Folgore, an electric variant, is also intended for India but won’t be available until Q1 2025.

Three engine options will be available for the Maserati Grecale. The 2.0-liter mild hybrid petrol engine, available in two distinct versions with variable power outputs, will power the GT and Modena models. The 3.0-liter Nettuno V6 engine that powers the Grecale Trofeo, the most potent variant, is the same engine that powers the MC20 supercar.

Maserati’s entry-level SUV, the Grecale, comes in three different models: the GT, Modena, and Trofeo, each with a different engine. With its 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine producing 300 hp, the GT version can go from 0 to 100 kmph in 5.6 seconds; its max speed is 240 kmph. The 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine used in the Modena model is tuned to produce 330 hp, which enables a 5.3-second acceleration from 0-100 kmph; top-speed is 240 kmph.

With its 3.0-liter V6 engine producing 530 hp, the Trofeo model can go from 0 to 100 kmph in just 3.8 seconds; its max speed is 285 kmph. For increased fuel efficiency, the V6 engine can additionally deactivate the right cylinder bank while cruising.

An 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox that delivers power to all wheels is connected to each engine. For the Modena and Trofeo models, a self-locking, limited-slip differential is standard; for the GT, it is an optional feature. There is also the option of air suspension.

The Grecale’s design is largely derived from the larger Levante, but it also borrows features from the new MC20, like its hunched-down outlook and low, imposing grille. A redesigned exhaust and a boomerang-shaped tail light design are two new characteristics on the back end. The performance-focused Trofeo model sets itself apart from the GT and Modena with unique bumpers, chrome highlights on the front grille, and a wider rear track.

The Grecale’s interior is a major upgrade over previous Maserati models, with a new, minimalist design and a four-screen setup. Standard features include an 8.8-inch touchpad for climate control, a 12.3-inch central infotainment screen, a digital driver’s display, and a new digital clock that can be seen clearly at the top of the dashboard. The steering wheel still has certain visual controls, and the dashboard’s continuous band of AC discharges is integrated.

In India, Maserati wants to introduce the Grecale as a premium car. It will cost more than its primary competitor, the Porsche Macan, and be imported in small quantities from Italy. Consequently, it is expected that the GT, Modena, and Trofeo versions of the Grecale will cost more than the equivalent regular, S, and GTS versions of the Macan, respectively. In India, the price of the Maserati Grecale and the Porsche Macan is comparable. Maserati intends to grow its network of dealerships and launch new models in India, with a particular emphasis on key cities and southern India.
