Maserati unveils Levante SUV ahead of Geneva debut

Maserati has finally unveiled the much-anticipated Levante, the first SUV in its history.


The design of the production Levante appears to be based on the 2011 Kubang Concept. Compared to it, it has maintained the main proportions, the overall surface treatment and many styling cues, including the arched roofline and muscular shoulders; the front end general layout; the side DLO graphics.

The front end introduces new, tapered headlights separated into two elements, with the upper headlight unit connected to the radiator grille.

The side view is characterized by the three iconic air vents on the front wings, the trapezoidal C-pillar with the “Saetta” logo and the large, frameless door windows.

Among the announced technical specs are sophisticated electronic suspensions with controlled damping and air springs and the “Q4” intelligent all-wheel drive with a specifically calibrated 8-speed automatic transmission.

The Levante will be offered with both gasoline and diesel engines, all Euro6-compliant. It 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.
