Maserati Kubang - High Versatility | Part Two

Maserati Kubang SUV Concept

 

Personalisation – a final flourish of exclusivity &pleasure

Maserati’s trademark exclusivity and sophistication shines out of all the Kubang’s other features too. No idea has been left unturned when it comes to onboard comfort and electronics and yet the customer still has enormous freedom to personalize. The Kubang drives home once again the fact that Maserati builds cars to be yours and no one else’s, courtesy of the "Officine Alfieri Maserati" personalisation programme.

High Versatility

The Kubang principle of combining fun behind the wheel, performance and maximum versatility even extend to the load area. The rear tailgate hinges high up on the roof to make loading and unloading comfortable - even for the tallest users. But that’s not all, the tailgate’s bottom section also flips up separately to make loading from a lower position equally easy. The total trunk capacity is 1,500 litres.

A Thrilling Sporty Drive

Maserati wanted the Kubang to be a versatile all-rounder. It had to have four-wheel drive, but Maserati stopped short of making it a full-specification off-roader, as the technical requirements to achieve that at would have gone completely against the whole GT philosophy. The six-speed transmission comes with a mechanical electro-hydraulic control, developed especially with fully automatic use in mind.
