Frankfurt: Maserati Kubang is Italian for SUV

"For the small reason SUVs currently never appear to suggest the kind of fortifying pushing wish as well as oppulance ambience which are two givens of today's high-end sports as well as oppulance cars."

So says Maserati, as well as yet we're utterly sure rivals like Porsche, BMW as well as even Maserati's own sister-brand, Jeep, would take offense to the claim, you feel inclined to point out which the really inlet of the SUV – aloft ground clearance, seating position as well as the successive aloft center-of-gravity, to name only the single – makes them less suitable for the kind of "driving pleasure" we'd in all associate with Maserati. But you digress.

What you have here is Maserati's take on the reward sport application vehicle, as well as the Italian automaker promises it heralds the coming of the new product line. Maserati claims which the Kubang's "style, engine, suspensions, brakes, handling as well as opening will all be 100% Maserati in picture-perfect smoothness with the brand's core values of sportiness, style, elegance, luxury, opening as well as craftsmanship."

We hope all which is true, as well as during slightest the powerplants sound enticing. According to the Italian company, the new era of exclusive engines are being written in Modena by Paolo Martinelli, who previously outlayed thirty years during Ferrari as well as the Scuderia factory racing team, as well as they'll be built in Maranello by Ferrari. Expect which engine to be mated to an eight-speed involuntary gearbox.

Keen fans of the code might recollect which this isn't the first Kubang seen from Maserati. Way behind in 2003 during the Detroit Auto Show, the Trident code showed off an SUV in conceptual form which common the same moniker. We think this the single looks the fair bit better, yet it's still the rather oddly shaped small duckling.

Nothing else is yet well known about the Kubang, though we'd expect it to steal liberally from the Jeep tools bin, as well as there have been most indications which it will expected even hurl down the Toledo, Ohio same assembly line as the Grand Cherokee. In any case, have the great demeanour during the Kubang in all the rather funky glory in our high-res gallery of live images, as well as feel giveaway to peruse the press recover after the break.
