With Maserati already juggling the development of many new models to increase its lineup, like the next gen Gran Turismo, Levante, Ghibli and a new flagship GT car, it has to be nearing the multitasking breaking point with this latest rumor. Said rumor is pointing toward the Trident-bearing brand developing a compact crossover to round out its lineup..

While the larger Levante is all set to compete against luxury SUVs like the Range Rover Sport, this smaller crossover has the Range Rover Evoque and Audi Q5 in its crosshairs. So, like its unannounced rival, the Porsche Macan, expect the design to be as wild and hot as the Evoque’s. With Pininfarina behind it, that’s not a tough task to undertake.

Like the Levante, which is based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the compact crossover will be based on a next-gen Jeep. The Jeep model in question will be the upcoming Liberty, which shares its platform – called the Compact U.S. Wide platform – with the Dodge Dart, Fiat Viaggio and the upcoming Alfa Romeo Giulia.

With Fiat’s aggressive lineup for Maserati, it looks like many more fans may be able to step foot into a Maserati of their own.
