2004 Maserati Kubang

[cars name="Maserati"] is introducing a full-size luxury sedan this fall, so it’s little surprise that the resurgent Italian automaker also developed a crossover SUV/wagon concept. The Kubang takes its name from a Javan wind and has a 4.2-liter V-8 sending 390 horsepower to all four wheels. Maserati claims a 0-to-60-mph time of 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 158 mph. The six-speed transmission is, as in the Maserati Coupe and Spyder, paddle-shifted. There’s room for four, five, or six passengers depending on seating options, and a large hatch and fold-down rear deck open wide for swallowing cargo. We suppose the idea of a Maserati wagon is no more objectionable than a Porsche SUV, and Maserati will probably need to round out its product portfolio to ensure its continued success in the North American market.
