The new Maserati Grecale SUV is “The Everyday Exceptional”. Grecale strikes the right balance between versatility, elegance, performance and innovation, guaranteeing performance, comfort and safety, all at the same time. These features are combined with off-road capabilities and uncompromising driving pleasure. Developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab in Modena, the new SUV is produced at the Cassino plant. Grecale is a range within the range, the Trident brand’s fullest ever. An extremely wide range of engines is available: conventional internal combustion, hybrid and, in a year’s time, Grecale will also be the first full-electric SUV in Maserati history. Three versions will be rolled out at launch: GT, powered by a four-cylinder mild hybrid engine capable of delivering 300 hp; Modena, with a four-cylinder 330-hp mild hybrid engine; and the powerful Trofeo, equipped with a high-performance 3.0L 530-hp petrol V6 based on the Nettuno engine fitted to the MC20.
Balanced and sporty at the same time - the chassis of the new Volkswagen ID.4
"Even conceptually, the ID.4 has the best prerequisites for great driving pleasure. The rear-wheel drive ensures strong traction - the driver already experiences it when he is at the traffic light in the wet The high-voltage battery is located between the axles at the lowest point of the car. The center of gravity and weight distribution benefit from this: in all drive variants it deviates by no more than one percent from the ideal value of 50:50. The front axle of the ID.4 follows the McPherson Design, the steering has a ratio of 15.9: 1. For the first time at Volkswagen, the steering gear is in front of the wheel center, this position guarantees high stability when cornering quickly. An elaborate new development works at the rear - a compact five-link suspension with a subframe , which is elastically connected to the body. Parts of the suspension are made of lightweight aluminum to save weight mm of the ID.4 starts with the 18 inch format, either in steel or aluminum. From the ID.4 Life model, 19-inch wheels are standard, above that there are only light-alloy wheels with a diameter of 20 or 21 inches. Although the large wheels in the wheelhouses need enough space, the ID.4 only needs a 10.2 meter turning circle - extremely little for a car in its class. "
A number of new technologies optimize the precision and control of the chassis in a wide variety of weather and road conditions. The standard electronic damper control (Electronic Control Suspension, ECS) in the GT-line version increases comfort and safety thanks to the continuous damping control. The system reacts to body movements and steering inputs and changes the damping behavior at lightning speed in order to counteract the vehicle's diving, pitching and rolling movements when cornering. It also adjusts the damping force in the case of obstacles in order to cope with them as comfortably as possible and to reduce the influence of post-vibrations on the wheels. A premiere for the Sportage is the “All-Terrain-Mode”, which will be available for the plug-in hybrid version with all-wheel drive. The system offers intelligent support when driving off-road or on snow by automatically optimizing the vehicle settings depending on the selected mode and thus helping the SUV to achieve maximum traction on muddy, sandy or snowy surfaces.
