Maserati’s upcoming entry-level SUV range has been priced for Australia ahead of its arrival in the first quarter of next year.
The 2023 Maserati Grecale lineup starts at $109,500 before road cost for the base GT, with the mid-size Modena at $128,000 before road cost and the flagship Trofeo at $165,000.
That puts it between the related Alfa Romeo Stelvio ($80,950-$158,000), with which it shares its Giorgio platform, and the larger Maserati Levante ($145,000-$300,000).

As with the Stelvio, the standard engine is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, although the Grecale has a 48V mild hybrid system and is rated at 221kW and 450Nm of torque – 15kW and 50Nm more than with the basic Stelvio Veloce.
The mid-range Modena gets slightly more power (242kW), while the flagship Trofeo features a detuned version of the 3.0-litre twin-turbo Nettuno V6 from the MC20 supercar.
It produces 390 kW of power and 620 Nm of torque, 15 kW and 20 Nm more than the 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 in the Stelvio Quadrifoglio, but with an identical 0-100 km/h time of 3.8 seconds .
The Grecale now not only offers buyers a more affordable entry point into Maserati ownership, but also gives the brand a direct competitor like the BMW X3 and Porsche Macan.
Roughly 12 months after the launch of the petrol Grecale, the upcoming all-electric Grecale Folgore will give the brand a rival for the BMW iX3 and forthcoming Porsche Macan EV.
It will offer a 400V electrical system, a 105kWh battery and up to 800Nm of torque sent to all four wheels.
