Maserati Grecale SUV detailed

Bonjourno and hello here from torino from centro still maserati my name is klaus pusser and i’m the head of design for maserati today i have the honor to introduce to you our new baby the maserati glycada now there will be two things i’ll talk to you about first when it comes to the exterior it’s all about visual longevity meaning we don’t design our cars for a

Two or three year lease contract our cars need to look good in 10 20 30 years and i’ll explain to you how we accomplish this and the second part will be about the interior the balance of the opposites but let’s start with the exterior of the masala gracala you’ll see right away on the front of the grecola that it resembles the face of the mc20 supercar with its

Low mounted grille and the high-mounted headlights but not only that also the philosophy of applying pure sculpture to the upper part of the grill and then at the lower part the engineering area where it’s all about functionality aerodynamic and performance this is the grill of the maserati glycal even though in the studio we prefer the term frame because for

Us it is not a grill but the frame of the real face of maserati which is the trident and for us the coolest logo in the industry now the grille and the headlights are not just purely graphical elements 2d elements quite the opposite they are actually really the 3d foundation of the construction of the crecade meaning that flowing out of the shape of the grill

You have this central fuselage which encompasses the body the cabin you know goes all the way to the rear of the vehicle and then we’re adding these four parts the wheel arches which have here as the starting point the headlights now this construction philosophy goes all the way back to the past meaning the 450s the bird cage also the mc20 and we carry it on into

The glacala suv on the side of the grecola the story of purity continues but when you reach ultimate purity you need to offset this purity with iconic details you need to carry the brand message and one of these details for examples are the wheels you can now see that we designed the wheels inspired by the shape of the trident you can see it here in the spokes

The reason behind that is we wanted to create wheels that really carry that brand message of maserati and only fit a maserati and that’s why you see our wheels not only for the trofeo but also the other models inspired by the shape of our iconic trident not only that we also have this small detail here it’s called the ugla i’ll let you look up what that means in

English but it’s in detail that’s also been with us for many many years and we carry it on the front of the vehicle and the grill above the trident and you’ll see it also in the rear another element that’s been with maserati for many decades are the three portholes on the side to create the engine ventilation and then of course in this particular case of the

Troffeogrecola the script of the trophee the purity of the body i spoke about but there’s one element that was contributing to remain pure in the body side that is by going from the mechanical handles to electric handles also helps with aerodynamic but for us from a design point of view very important to again maintain this purity you have it of course driver

Door and the rear door and here you already see this muscle developing that i spoke about earlier you have the central fuselage of the cabin and the front grille and then these added on parts that create this beautiful muscle in the rear talking about this part of the car here’s the typical maserati triangular seat post hosting the new redesigned trident now

Liberated from the ellipse and more confident and we launched it first on the mc20 continuing in here on the catechola and future models on the rear of the maserati gracala you see the beautiful effect of the construction i was mentioning earlier the central fuselage of the car and those added on parts on either side you can really see the beautiful proportion

The beautiful reflection we’re creating through that construction the taillights remind you of the 3200 gt boomerang taillights iconic details with us designed by jujaro originally are now coming back with a maserati glycada the script in the center maserati freshened up redesigned first introduced with the mc20 together with a redesigned trident and then overall

You see the same philosophy as you saw on the front the upper part of the car very clean very pure very sculpted and then the lower part of the card is all about business all about carbon fiber and creating that opposite contrast now talking about opposites let’s take a look at the interior of the grickala and let’s talk about the balance of the opposites in the

Cabin of the maserati grecado you see all the elements you expect from maserati and you can also see how teamwork delivers a great product column material delivering fine leather this open three-dimensional carbon fiber but just the work of the design team with this ac outlet paired with perceived quality and tactile quality here with the controller to control

The airflow but also no detail is too small for this team for example this little metal plaque to finish off the stitching on the side of the console now the steering wheel will always be the most important part of the maserati interior you have those massive metal shifter pedals here but you also have now directly at your fingertips the drive mode controller

And the engine start stop button talking about drive modes here in the center we have the new single glass big screen paired with pr d buttons so we’re really bringing together the digital world and the mechanical world in the digital world you can see the drive mode selective feedback in this case you have the gt and you have the read out of the behavior of the

Car if you now go to corsa you can see how the behavior mapping changes and what to expect when driving it speaking about corsa up here we have our new digital clock before it was always analog now we’re going digital and this clock can also be configured and if you want to go into corsa mode you can of course go into a g meter i mentioned the mechanical pr d

Shifter buttons that we have integrated into the screen that allows us to actually remove the shifter from its normal position here on the console and it allows us to create some extra storage opportunity for the customer but also for your phone and some wireless charging the comfort doesn’t stop here the gracala has best-in-class second-row legroom on top of

That technology i spoke about the central screen i spoke about the digital clock there’s one more element which is the cluster in front of the driver 12 inch fully configurable whether you like the gt mode or the more relaxed reduced mode and of course there will be a corsa mode what is really unique about the cluster is actually its shape its form normally the

Screens are rectangular they have to be mounted rather high on top of the steering column which takes them out the optimal viewing area with this cluster we were able to give it a so-called saddle cart more like a free form and that allows us to move the cluster down hugging the steering column and providing the perfect viewing yoga so you now see why team play

Is such an important part when designing the car whether it’s the exterior with the beautiful shapes the lighting team on the interior color material the design team engineering everyone coming together to truly deliver an exceptional product to you you
