2024 Maserati Grecale Trofeo Review: Supercar Steering and SupercarQuirks

The Maserati Grecale Trofeo is the performance-oriented version of the company’s small SUV, balancing elegance and sportiness. Together with an incredible 523 horsepower, its twin-turbo V-6 produces a rich exhaust note.The Grecale’s elegant styling is given a sporty twist by the Trofeo’s exterior design, which is echoed inside the cabin with an abundance of premium materials and appealing technology features. In contrast to competitors like the Audi SQ5 and BMW X3 M, the Maserati Grecale Trofeo exudes an air of haute couture. This is advantageous since it also commands a starting price in the six figures, while its German competitors demand high five figures.
 

What's New Feature In 2024?

The Maserati Grecale Trofeo gets new standard adaptive LED headlamps and a slightly redesigned steering wheel for its second year on the market. In other news, Maserati has introduced its Fuoriserie Personalization Program, enabling customers to personalize their Grecale with a range of exclusive interior finishes, special paint jobs, and distinctive liveries.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

The starting price of the 2024 Maserati Grecale Trofeo is $109,495 dollars.
TheMaserati Grecale Trofeo’s six-figure price tag places it below other high-end SUV competitors that have much lower sticker prices. We would proceed cautiously and refrain from outfitting one with pricey extras that will only drive up the SUV’s price to unimaginable heights.
 Fortunately, practically every anticipated premium feature—such as a power sunroof, 21-inch summer-tread wheels, heated front seats with 14 power adjustments, adaptive cruise control, and real leather upholstery—comes standard on the Trofeo. We would pay a few thousand dollars more for the Trofeo Premium Plus Package if we felt like spoiling ourselves. It also includes a 21-speaker Sonus Faber audio system, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel (remember, our office is in snowy Michigan).

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The 3.0-liter V-6 twin-turbo engine that powers the Maserati Grecale Trofeo was modified from the MC20 sports car to produce 523 horsepower. Maserati Grecale Trofeo claims that’s still sufficient to get the SUV from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds, with a top speed of 177 mph. An eight-speed automatic transmission manages the gear changes, assisting in supplying the  Maserati Grecale Trofeo’s all-wheel drive system with all that horsepower.

 Additionally, the Trofeo has an air suspension system that can be adjusted to suit different driving conditions and adaptive dampers as standard equipment.The Corsa driving mode, in our opinion, stiffened things up excessively and made the ride uncomfortable over uneven patches of road. Maybe it would be better to save that for a lap around the racetrack. We’ll take the Grecale Trofeo to our test track and update this story with acceleration data and additional driving impressions once we have an opportunity to test drive it on our home ground.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The Maserati Grecale Trofeo has an EPA rating of 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the interstate. We’ll test drive the Grecale Trofeo on our 75 mph highway fuel-economy route when we get a chance, and we’ll share the results here. Visit the EPA website to learn more about the Grecale’s fuel efficiency.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

There are some high-tech touches in the elegant interior design of the Maserati Grecale Trofeo. In addition to the luxurious materials used throughout the cabin, the dash has two touchscreens located on the center stack and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. The infotainment system is managed by the 12.3-inch upper unit, while the HVAC and other controls are located on the 8.8-inch lower screen. 

The norm is a three-zone climate system. As long as people in the back aren’t too tall or riding three across, there should be enough room for everyone to be comfortable. Up to 20 cubic feet of space can be found in the cargo area of the Grecale Trofeo. According to Maserati, there is a flat load floor with a storage compartment beneath it behind the power-folding rear seats.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, powered by Google, is standard on both the Grecale Trofeo and the regular Grecale. Other functions on the dashboard are controlled by an additional 8.8-inch touchscreen located beneath the primary one. All models include wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. For the Grecale Trofeo’s audio system, Maserati has a contract with Sonus Faber. The standard configuration has 14 speakers, but it is also possible to upgrade to a 21-speaker system for even more power.

In addition to a driver-monitoring system and lane-keeping assistance, all Grecale Trofeo models have various other driver-assistance features.
