This is Levante. The Maserati of SUVs.
Levante, Maserati’s first SUV in the brand’s more than one hundred year history, is built at the Mirafiori plant in Turin; the first cars have already come off the assembly line with the launch planned for this spring in Europe, to be followed by the rest of the world later this year. Maserati’s first SUV receives its eagerly-awaited world unveiling at the upcoming Geneva International Motor Show.
The technical level:
The Levante’s chassis is designed to combine the outstanding on-road performance typical of every Maserati with unrivalled handling even on very low-grip surfaces and an excellent off- road performance and ride. The new luxury SUV boasts a high level of content as standard, with all
versions featuring: sophisticated electronic suspension with controlled damping and air springs, which can be set on several levels, “Q4” intelligent all-wheel drive and 8-speed automatic transmission specially calibrated for the brand’s new SUV.
When it comes to power units, the levante is equipped with both petrol and diesel engines that are all Euro6-compliant.
The aggressive front of the car introduces new, tapered headlights separated into two elements, with the upper headlight unit connected to the radiator grille. Maserati’s design signature is clearly visible on the sides: the three iconic air vents on the front wings, the trapezoidal
C-pillar with the “Saetta” logo and the large, frameless door windows. The rear is dominated by the very tapered back window and streamlined shape, both typical of a high-performance sports car.
