Naza Italia, Maserati distributors in the country, has announced the availability of the Maserati Levante SUV. The Maserati Lavente comes in at a price of RM 888,800.00, including a 3-year warranty.

The exterior of the Maserati Levante is cut out to be pure Italian and everything about the Trident marque. The Levante, like other Maserati variants, exhibits similar design cues and incorporates the brand’s signature lush aesthetic and spacious interior.

At the front, the trademark radiator grille with slim and tapered headlights dominates the car’s bold unmistakable front-end. Its sleek silhouette is formed of graceful sweeping lines. Its streamlined shape, typical of high performance sports cars, allows a Cx coefficient of just 0.31. A standout feature (one seen in other models in the brand’s product line-up) is the frameless door windows. With a tailored and exceptionally spacious cabin (best in class), the Levante exudes sophistication and truly is the epitome of comfort.

Moving on to the inside, the Maserati Levante introduces a host of cutting-edge technologies to the current Maserati line-up; from safety to convenience options and through to the brand new Human Machine Interface and the dedicated cargo solutions. The range of equipment options is wider and more complete than ever, with innovative features of the car including: Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, Forward Collision Warning and Brake Assist System, Lane Departure Warning, Surround View camera, capacitive 8.4-inch 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 while on the move.

At it’s core, the Levante is equipped with the latest evolution of the Maserati’s 3.0-liter V6 engines. The Malaysian market will get to enjoy the frugal turbodiesel version, capable of 275 hp and sprinting from 0 – 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds. With a maximum speed of 230 km/h, it still manages to keep the fuel economy as low as 7.2 liters/100 km. The Levante adopts the eight-speed automatic ZF gearbox that provides seamless comfort and fast gear shifting, depending on the selected drive mode and presents a choice of four drive modes, “Normal”, I.C.E., “Sport” and “Off-road”.

Performance-oriented features, such as the extensive use of lightweight materials, ideal 50:50 weight distribution and the lowest center of gravity in class, enable Maserati’s newest offering to deliver unparalleled agility in the luxury SUV class. The Levante’s exclusivity stems from technical features like Air Suspension, electronically controlled Skyhook shock absorbers and the Q4 AWD system, which come as standard equipment, and the high level of customization that includes two unique packages, Sport and Luxury. An optional upgrade to the Sport Package includes exterior and interior design elements, while the Luxury Pack offers more leather options to the interior. A third option is the exclusive Zegna Edition pack, which combines premium Italian leather with bespoke silk from Ermenegildo Zegna.

Everyone is invited to drop by the Maserati showroom in Petaling Jaya to get up close and personal with the new Levante.
