Taking aim at even the most established models in the segment, the Grecale has caused quite a stir already. To demonstrate the compelling list of advantages of the Grecale, our team at Maserati of Central New Jersey has assembled this head-to-head model comparison.

Interiors Compared

Looking objectively at the interiors of both the Maserati Grecale and Porsche Macan, it’s easy to understand how each model demonstrates its own unique personality. Featuring quintessential Italian design, the Grecale stands out with a dual-screen infotainment system featuring a 12.3-inch and 8.8-inch combination of touchscreens along with a digital gauge cluster. Exclusive Sonus faber audio systems add an audiophile-grade listening experience to the Grecale as well. Upscale materials available inside its cabin include leather, aluminum, genuine carbon fiber, and more.

Arguably less opulent and more driver-centric, the Porsche Macan includes a familiar layout with more tactile buttons scattered throughout the center console and dashboard. It has just a single – slightly smaller touchscreen display as compared to the Grecale, measuring just 10.9 inches. Upgraded audio systems are available from Bose and Burmester on the Porsche, ensuring an exceptional listening environment in both vehicles. But a final key difference between the two is cargo capacity. The Maserati Grecale offers 20 cubic feet of rear cargo capacity compared to 17.6 cubic feet inside the Porsche Macan. As a result, the Maserati Grecale tops the Porsche here with more space, additional tech, and iconic Italian hand-crafted interiors – making the Maserati Grecale a true feast for the senses.
