Inspired by a warm, Mediterranean wind that can change from mild to gale force, the Maserati Levante redefines the very notion of a luxury SUV, particularly with the highly exclusive Zegna Edition.
The introduction of the Maserati Levante is, arguably, a major turning point of the brand’s history. Based on the evolution of the saloon platform, the chassis of the Levante was specifically developed to offer unique on-road drivability and competitive off-road capability, while still keeping day-to-day comfort and practicality in mind. This premium Italian SUV was conceived around three main pillars: Design, Exclusivity and Performance. It represents the optimum blend of these three elements in the SUV world.
The name “levante” was inspired by a warm, Mediterranean wind that can change from mild to gale force in instant, which perfectly reflects the characteristics of what is the very first Maserati SUV. The design embraces the aesthetics of Italian style, making it distinct and attractive on its own. Its exclusivity stems from technical features like the Q4 AWD system, which come as standard equipment, and the high level of customisation that includes two cutting-edge packages, Sport and Luxury.
Naturally, the Levante offers the solid off-road capabilities and functionalities of a full-fledged SUV, primarily through a range of performance-oriented features, such as the extensive use of lightweight materials, ideal 50-50 weight distribution and a lowest in class centre of gravity.
Engine-wise, the Levante is equipped with the latest evolution of the Maserati 3-litre V6 engines. The two versions of the twin-turbo petrol engine and the economical turbodiesel are globally acclaimed for their unique Maserati signature sound and for their exceptional performances.
Other innovative feature of the car include: Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, Forward Collision Warning and Brake Assist System, Lane Departure Warning, Surround View camera, capacitive 8.4″ Touch Screen display with brand new rotary control, plus the AHA function, an addition to the Maserati Touch Control Plus which extends the AM, FM and DAB digital radio with a network connection option. The AHA function dialogues with the user’s network-connected mobile device to give access to on-line services (radio stations, programmes, etc.) while on the move.
Further elevating its luxurious touch, the Maserati Levante can also be equipped with the highly exclusive Zegna Edition pack that combines premium Italian leather with natural Mulberry Silk from Ermenegildo Zegna. The silk is made in Trivero by the designer’s wool mill using a patented process. And then there are the inserts on the seats, door panels, roof lining, sunshades, and ceiling light fixture, all embellished with a hand-stitched Micro Chevron.
A new state-of-the-art production line was set up exclusively for the Levante in the historic Mirafiori plant which boasts a more than 100-year tradition of craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology, which guarantees outstanding quality right down to the tiniest of details.
