Having sorted the new Quattroporte, pretty much scheduled what’s going on with the Kubang/Levante SUV and getting ready to roll out the Ghibli, Maserati are once again looking towards expansion.
The next natural step? Well it’s one of those trendy ideas the automotive industry refers to as a crossover. Probably one of the most criticized sort of vehicle to ever be popular.
As the times are pretty tight for small car makers, the luxury of having a personality or individuality seems to have disappeared.
Even path forgers such as Bugatti have had to wind down their plans and ideas, a company that has been trailing for the last half a decade or so certainly can’t afford to act smart.
Now that it’s obvious they’re going to make a crossover, we can settle down on the disappointment as Maserati isn’t completely involved on releasing everything about their plans.
Given how busy they’ve been recently, that could simply mean that the details have not been worked out yet. It could also be something less glamorous.
If logic is to be followed, the new Maserati crossover will almost certainly share a platform with the upcoming Jeep Liberty.
While the car is headed for a major transformation soon, the previous generations haven’t been the most aggressive selling cars out there.
It’s not that bad an idea in terms of finances and hopefully the cheapness won’t wash through. After all, the new Maserati crossover will be fighting stuff like the Porsche Macan.
