Maserati finally reveals first SUV

Maserati has released the first official exterior images of its first ever SUV, called the Levante.

It shares quite a few of its main design elements with other vehicles in the Maserati line-up and is a rather handsome vehicle.

Naturally, it’s being labeled as a sporty SUV and Maserati states that it will have unrivaled handling on low-grip surfaces, as well as excellent off-road performance. The technology behind these claims is the Q4 intelligent all-wheel drive system and eight-speed automatic.

Both petrol and turbocharged diesel powertrains will be available, but no official performance figures are available yet.

The Levante will be introduced locally, but no arrival date has been set yet.
