If you're thinking of leasing a luxury mid-size SUV you've probably narrowed your choice down to either a Range Rover or a Porsche. Accepted wisdom would suggest these are both eminently sensible choices.

Now here's a perfect reason to throw a spanner in the works of accepted wisdom and lease yourself the brand-new Maserati Grecale instead.

We told you about this forthcoming SUV a while back. Well, it is no longer forthcoming. It has now arrived, and if you're looking for a touch of luxury why on earth wouldn't you want a Maserati…?

Designed in Maserati's Modena studio, the Grecale combines versatility, elegance, performance, and innovation. This is the Italian luxury brand's first foray into the mid-size SUV segment, taking its place in the line-up alongside its full-size stablemate, the Levante. It's the stylish Italian alternative to those other choices we mentioned earlier.

The Maserati Grecale offers generous interior space with a sumptuous interior lined with the finest wood, carbon fibre and leather combinations. The interior also includes the traditional Maserati clockface in a fully digitised and voice-controlled version for the 21st century. You'll also get smartphone connectivity, active cruise control, front and rear parking sensors with rear active braking, full LED headlights, hill descent control, rear view camera, 12.3-inch touchscreen and 8.8 multi-function comfort screen.

If that's not enough for your tastes, Maserati will gladly point you in the direction of the Fuoriserie customisation programme so you can create your dream one-of-a-kind SUV, both inside and out. With this unique personalisation programme, pretty much anything goes – presumably, the only limit to your imagination is the depth of your pockets.

Three versions of the Maserati Grecale are initially available to order: the GT, Modena, and Trofeo. If you're prepared to wait a little longer there's also an all-electric Folgore version to follow sometime next year.

The GT and Modena versions are both powered by Maserati's four-cylinder mild hybrid engine, offering 300bhp and 330bhp respectively. The flagship, Trofeo boosts the power to a whopping 530bhp thanks to the V6 Nettuno engine that also features in the MC20 supercar. All versions are fitted with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel-drive as standard.

Now the Maserati Grecale has actually arrived in right-hand drive versions there's nothing stopping you blowing a raspberry in the general direction of accepted wisdom. In a world full of SUVs, the new Grecale is your chance to lease something a little bit special. And parking that famous trident badge outside your house is a very pleasurable way to stand out from the crowd.
