Maserati’s first-ever SUV, the Maserati Levante, is set to launch at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016.
The car will be based on the same platform as the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans and it will share their range of V6 and V8 engines, transmissions and advanced all-wheel drive system. The styling of the SUV will share some elements of the 2011 Kubang concept and the 2014 Alfieri sports car.
Maserati brand manager Giulio Pastore had this to say, “The Levante is a critical part of building a sustainable business; there is no life for a company that sells only sports cars, so its success is key to us. That is why we have invested so much in the Levante. It is our design, engineered entirely by Maserati and built to our values. It is a sports SUV with an emphasis on the sport, but with credible off-road capability and the unique Maserati qualities around style and sophistication”.
