If you pay attention closely enough, you'll see a few generic Stellantis parts in the interior of the Maserati Grecale Trofeo, but nothing detracts from the general impression of quality and style, except for the steering wheel, but only because it looks like it was lifted straight from the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Is a proper Grecale tiller too much to ask for at $100k? The materials are of very high quality, with leather on the seats, doors, and dash, and the furnishings are plush and stylish, which they'd better be at this price. It's certainly high-tech and the driver is faced with four well-integrated digital screens worth a total of 33 inches - a digital gauge cluster, two center screens for infotainment and climate control, and the classic Maserati clock in the center of the dashboard, which is itself a configurable screen. There's ample space inside the Trofeo, too, and it's roomier than most rivals.
In front, the heated and 12-way power-adjustable sports seats of the Maserati Grecale Trofeo provide excellent seating comfort and grip occupants securely, even when the car's considerable handling prowess is explored. The driver's seat gets a memory function, too. Interior space is excellent for this segment and the ample 39.1 inches of rear legroom even beats the second-row figure of the larger BMW X5. The Trofeo is reasonably easy to see out of, but the pillars are quite thick and you'll find yourself relying on the rearview camera and parking sensors when backing up.

The default seat upholstery is full premium leather and there are three interior colors in the Maserati Grecale Trofeo's list of options: Nero with Rosso stitching, Nero with Giallo stitching, and Rosso. The latter also decks out the center console, center door panels, and lower dashboard in red. The contrast stitching of the first two options is not only on the seats, but extends to the dashboard, center console, and door panels. The Trofeo also gets leather trim on the door panels and dashboard. Once again, that Stelvio steering wheel misses out on any special treatment and doesn't even get contrast stitching. The Maserati trident logo can be stitched into the front and rear headrests for an additional $400. The standard interior trim is 3D Carbon Fiber but, for $300 high-gloss Copper Yarn carbon fiber or high-gloss Piano Black trim can be specified. High-gloss Carbon Fiber Twill trim will set you back $1,800.
It seems that all that interior space comes at the expense of trunk space because the Maserati Grecale Trofeo's trunk space with the second row in use is a middling 18.9 cu-ft. This is more than the small Macan, but down nearly 10 cu-ft less than the X3. The second row power folds to expand trunk volume, but no figure is given for the Grecale in this configuration. There is also a storage compartment underneath the load floor. There are reasonably sized door pockets in all four doors, a traditional glovebox, a lidded center-console storage box, two cupholders in front of that, and a place to store your phone or other small items in front of that.
The Grecale Trofeo gets all the standard features already fitted to the Modena, which is to say LED headlights, a power liftgate, a panoramic sunroof, keyless entry, push-button start, ambient interior lighting, heated front seats, and a leather-trimmed tilting/telescoping steering wheel. However, its powered front seats are upgraded to 12-way adjustment, its leather is of a more premium variety, and it gets tri-zone climate control. Standard driver assists include automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, forward-collision warning, and front and rear parking sensors. Extra-cost options vary from luxuries such as ventilated front seats to various additional driver assists like a head-up display, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with stop & go, lane-keep assist, and blind-spot monitoring.
The Maserati Intelligent Assistant (MIA) infotainment system is Android Automotive OS-powered and comes with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster/driver-information display, a 12.3-inch center touchscreen, and an 8.8-inch climate-control touchscreen below the main one. Standard infotainment features include navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Wi-Fi capability, and a 14-speaker Sonus Faber audio system. The Maserati clock in the center of the dash is also a configurable digital screen that can display a normal clock, a compass, a chronometer, an interactive assistant display, or a G meter. Among the extra-cost options are a wireless charging pad, a head-up display, and a 21-speaker Sonus Faber audio system.
The Grecale Trofeo's trunk has a capacity of 18.9 cu-ft behind the rear seats.
The Grecale Trofeo can transport a maximum of five passengers.
