The Grecale is a mid-sized, luxury SUV from Maserati. It’s a five-seat SUV (based on Stellantis’ ‘Georgio’ platform, shared with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Alfa Giulia and Stelvio) with good space, slightly confusing/generic styling and lots of interesting colours. The intention here is what Maserati refers to as ‘visual longevity’ – the idea that if you produce something that follows current trends too closely, you end up falling out of fashion equally quickly. Fair enough, but what you get is a car that might well fail to grab enough attention in the first place.
