The Maserati Levante is a turning point in Maserati’s history. The brand new model, which makes its world premiere at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, enables “The Trident” to access the largest luxury segment in the world.
The Levante name was inspired by the warm, Mediterranean wind that can change from mild to gale force in an instant; mirroring the character of the first Maserati SUV. It reflects the passion, the flair and the exclusivity that has distinguished all Maserati models for over a century.
The Levante is based on the evolution of the sedan platform, designed exclusively by Maserati. It represents the optimum blend of the essential three elements of the SUV world: design, exclusivity and performance.
The design is distinctive and attractive, embracing the most valuable aesthetic elements of Italian style. The new car is immediately recognisable as a genuine Maserati, even from a distance. The muscular shape of the rear shoulders gives it a distinctive and attractive Italian style. The 5-metre long Levante is the longest car in its segment. As a result, the car is one of the roomiest in its class and also boasts the sportiest and most elegant design in the luxury SUV segment.
The interior of the Levante feels like a first class lounge, thanks to the standard leather seats. Customers can personalise the interior according to their individual tastes. There are two interior packages available: Sport and Luxury.
The Sport package includes exterior and interior design elements that reflect Maserati’s legendary racing heritage: front grille and front/rear skid plates in black gloss, body coloured rear sport spoiler, steel door sills, 12-ways electric Sport Seats, sport power adjustable Steering wheel, body coloured lower parts, 20 machine polished wheels, red brake callipers, gearshift paddles and brushed steel sport pedals.
The Luxury package offers a higher level of luxury, using exclusive materials and special contents in the finest tradition of Italian craftsmanship. The Luxury Pack includes chromed front grille, steel door and trunk sills, Premium Leather or Zegna Edition interior, body coloured lower parts, 19” machine polished wheels, black brake callipers, a Harman Kardon audio system, wooden interior trim, 12-way electric Comfort Seats and power rear side sun-blinds.
The Levante can also be equipped with the optional and highly exclusive Zegna Edition package that combines premium Italian leather with bespoke silk from Ermenegildo Zegna, one of the leading fashion designers in the world.
The natural Zegna Mulberry Silk fibre inserts on the seats, door panels, roof lining, sunshades and ceiling light fixture are embellished with a hand-stitched Micro Chevron, adding to the overriding sense of exclusivity and luxury. The Levante can be ordered with double laminated acoustic glass for the rear windows that reduces external noise and guarantees excellent temperature stability. For total privacy, the rear door windows and the fifth door window can be ordered with darkened glass.
The Levante has entered the SUV segment with a marked advantage in terms of new content, such as Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, Forward Collision Warning and Brake Assist System, Q4 All-Wheel-Drive system and the newly introduced Torque Vectoring system, which delivers GT on-road behaviour. As well, there is the Lane Departure Warning system, Surround View camera, capacitive 8.4” Touch Screen display with brand new rotary control and many other conveniences for the discriminating consumer.
Engine-wise, the Levante is equipped with the latest evolution of the Maserati 3-litre V6 engines, which come in two different power outputs: twin-turbo petrol engine and the frugal turbo-diesel. This new generation of Maserati engines is more powerful, more exciting to drive and more eco-friendly than ever.
The V6 petrol twin turbo engine with the latest GDI technology developed by the Maserati Powertrain (in conjunction with the Ferrari Powertrain development team) is available in two versions with different horsepower: the top of the range 430 hp and the exciting 350 hp. The most powerful Levante S 430 accelerates to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds and has a top speed of 264 km/h. The 350 hp version makes it in 6.0 seconds and has a top speed of 251 km/h, but who’s counting.
The Levante is also equipped with a common-rail, direct injection turbo-diesel V6 engine with reduced dwell-time injectors. The 3-litre diesel engine is capable of 275 hp and delivers 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and a 230 km/h maximum speed, while keeping the fuel economy as low as 7.2 litres/100 km under the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).
Excellent performance and driving pleasure have been integral to Maserati’s values since the birth of the brand. The very same values are prominent in the new Levante. Indulge in a test drive and begin to access the luxury that you have earned and the exclusivity and prestige that you deserve.
