Maserati joins Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini and adds Maserati Levante SUV to its range of luxury sports cars of unmatched design
Maserati Levante SUV is named after a warm, Mediterranean wind that can change from mild to gale force strength in an instant. The Levante will be the first SUV in the history of the century-old Italian brand known mostly for its exotic sports cars. The opulent SUV carries many of the brand’s styling cues, and the grille, curvy fenders, headlight shape, and vents will fit in with the rest of the brand’s products, like Quattroporte and Ghibli sedans.
Unlike other modern SUVs, Maserati Levante has long and narrow body with a big hood and rakish windshield. The rear of the SUV features quad-exhausts and a sloping roofline with a partially integrated spoiler. Aspiring to be unique and built to be heard, the Maserati Levante is designed to make a memorable impression and provide the ultimate combination of on-road performance and off-road capabilities.
Rather aggressive looking front of Maserati Levante features 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.
Set to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1st, the first Maserati Levante SUVs have already come off the assembly line with the launch planned for spring 2016 in Europe. The mechanical side of the SUV is yet to be revealed, but it’s announced that the Levante will be available with both diesel and gasoline engines, coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission and the brand’s “Q4” all-wheel-drive system. Maserati also confirmed that the Levante will use an electronically controlled suspension with adjustable dampers and air springs.
