Maserati Grecale 2023: Australian pricing confirmed for luxury SUV

John Law

Priced from $109,500 before on-road costs, the Maserati Grecale is due down under in the first quarter of 2023

The 2023 Maserati Grecale will hit Australian shores in the first quarter of 2023 priced between $109,500 and $165,000 before on-road costs, making the midsize luxury SUV the most affordable vehicle in the Italian marque’s range. 

Three Grecale variants are confirmed for release in Australia: base GT, mid-spec Modena and range-topping Trofeo.

Each variant has bespoke outputs with both the base model GT and Modena using a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder and Trofeo scoring the MC20’s ‘Nettuno’ 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 donk producing 398kW/620Nm

The Grecale will be crucial in Maserati’s success in Australia, with Maserati Australia’s general manager Grant Barling explaining that “importantly, it also gives Maserati presence in one of the most important segments in the Australian market.”

When the Grecale lands, it will be in competition with the sportiest variants of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Porsche Macan, BMW X3, Audi SQ5 and Mercedes-AMG GLC.

The Grecale range opens with the GT variant that features a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers outputs of 221kW/450Nm. This powertrain also utilises a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. All Grecales are AWD.

Every Grecale in Australia is equipped with a generous level of technology centred around a 12.3-inch central screen, 12.3-inch digital driver’s display and further 8.8-inch display for HVAC and clock functions.

The infotainment system offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and is hooked up to a 1000-watt Sonus Faber sound system boasting 21 speakers.

Stepping up to the Modena, the same 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine’s outputs jump to 242kW/450Nm. Inside, the Trofeo amps athleticism with carbon fibre trim and perforated leather upholstery.

The pinnacle of the Maserati Grecale range – the Trofeo – will feature a detuned version of the MC20’s ‘Nettuno’ 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine that makes 390kW of power and 620Nm of torque

The Modena is equipped with active air suspension as standard that offers up to 65mm of adjustable height. Off-road mode gives a maximum of 30mm lift, while in ‘park’ mode the Grecale lowers by 35mm total. 

Paired with adaptive air springs are adaptive dampers. There are a total of five drive modes: Comfort, GT, Sport Race and off-road.

Maserati also includes safety and driver assistance features such as adaptive cruise control, active lane management, rear cross-traffic alert and driver fatigue warning. 

Maserato is only bringing ICE-powered Grecales to Australia for the time being with the fully-electric Grecale Folgore – that boasts a whopping 105kWh lithium-ion battery pack – set to launch later next year globally.
