First Ever Maserati SUV At Geneva Motor Show
First Love

For the first time in more than 100 years, the house of Maserati is launching an SUV to add to its existing range of luxury sport and saloon cars. How very Italian of them to do something when that something is the very epitome of automobile perfection in itself! This stylish beast is designed to combine the outstanding on-road performance typical of every Maserati with unrivalled handling. Even on very low-grip surfaces it guarantees excellent off-road performance and ride.

The new SUV is all about setting the standards a mile high. All versions feature sophisticated electronic suspension along with controlled damping and air springs which can be set on several levels. There is also “Q4” intelligent all-wheel drive and 8-speed automatic transmission specially calibrated for the Levante.

Subtly Killer Looks

The body is designed to mimic the lean mean lines of a handsome multi-millionaire who is not afraid to get down and dirty, be it on the roads or in life. Notice the aggressive front with the new, tapered headlights separated into two distinct units, with the upper headlight connected to the radiator grille for a more pronounced snarl. The essential Maserati signature is clearly visible on the sides with the three iconic air vents placed strategically on the front wings to balance out the linear aerodynamic lines with the overall heavy weight frame.

The trapezoidal C-pillar works in seamlessly with the logo up front and bold. The large, frameless door windows, a sunroof and hatch off the roof are complimented by the tapered back window to add to the streamlined shape, so typical of a high-performance sports car.
