The other main Maserati attraction is the Levante Hybrid, which makes its Chinese market debut.  This model is faster than a diesel, more sustainable than diesel or gasoline, and unique in its specific characteristics. The premium SUV combines the 4-cylinder, 2.0 liter engine with a 48 volt Hybrid system to recover energy during deceleration and braking. Output of 330 hp and 450 Nm of torque make the Levante hybrid a formidable premium SUV. Only available with all-wheel drive, the hybrid generates a top speed of over 240 km/h and does a century mark in 6 seconds.

 

The Levante hybrid is characterized by a new metallic tri-coat color called Azzurro Astro. Various distinguishing exterior and interior element are the side air ducts, brake calipers (option), C-pillar logo and embroidered seams of the seats.
