Maserati Kubang



After years of speculation, it is real. Maserati will build an SUV.
I guess why not. If even Porsche does it, and is successful at it.
This could increase Maserati sales drastically.

And, at least from these pictures, it does look like a Maserati.

The Kubang is supposed to be based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee. But it doesn't show. Which is a good thing for an SUV that is expected to cost 2 or 3 times as much as the Jeep.
The Maserati will rely on its own engines.

MAZDArati! The profile is a Mazda CX7 and the tail is very similar to the Porsche Cayenne. Fiat needs to focus it's attention on fixing Chrysler/Dodge rather than building a $100K+ SUV.

Though it looks allot better then the kubang illustration that was floating around previously, I am not sold on it's looks. I mean it's attractive, just not sexy like other maseratis.

someone doing the naming at Maserati must be in love with Chittychittybangbang.

Wow the car market is getting way to crowded.

Anyone else pick up on the rear tailgate/light swoosh that is very similar to the Audi q5?

This thing looks ridiculous. A rebadged Jeep Cherokee with Maserati engineering? Sounds like a reliability nightmare waiting to happen

Looks like it could be a Buick or Infiniti too.

Overall it is a nice effort considering what they had to work with.. but the rear end is a total Audi ripoff. They should have grafted the GranTurismo taillights to it instead!
