Maserati adds more wind to its sails with the Levante S: a new V6 petrol-powered adaptation of the Levante SUV, ‘the Maserati of SUVs’ and the first in their 103-year history. Named after a warm Mediterranean wind, this car breezes through all types of terrain with its 50/50 weight distribution and 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine built and designed by Ferrari.
The Levante S is now available in GranLusso and GranSport trim options. The GranLusso trim option places emphasis on luxury and comfort whereas the GranSport trim option places emphasis on directly engaging dynamics.
This SUV embraces Maserati’s sporty credentials and comes with high performance capabilities as standard: 0-62mph in 5.2 seconds and a top speed of 164mph. Maserati has blown away the stigma surrounding SUVs with a perfect blend of comfort and sport. Even at low revs your right foot unleashes tremendous amounts of power. The Levante S is in its element anywhere, with an air suspension system that allows for five different dynamic ride heights for effortless comfort and performance.
The new Levante S promises precise handling with 50/50 weight distribution, an eight-speed gearbox and intelligent all-wheel drive. The Levante S also comes with a continuous damping variation in order to transform from sport to comfort with poise.
Maserati is known for its pursuit of technological innovation and this model does not disappoint. With a dual-zone climate control, it ensures all occupants are comfortable; automatically adjusting ventilation in counteraction to outdoor temperatures.
Intuitive controls at your disposal with the Maserati Touch Control 8.4” screen provides seamless control over the on-board features which include climate control, phone controls, sat-nav and soundtrack selection.
The Levante S includes the high-specification features you would expect from Maserati, also optional items that can be added to enhance the driving experience including premium sound systems created in partnership with Bowers & Wilkens or Harman Kardon
With a sleek and sporty look, the Levante S keeps in character with the Maserati brand with its stamp of exclusivity and sophistication in the reputable trident badge. Its coupé-like shape and audacious aerodynamic rear creates an air of superiority complimented by the three iconic vents on the front wings.
Maserati has collaborated with Ermenegildo Zegna to take the internal design of the Levante S to new heights. The spacious interior features elegant materials such as leather, fine woods, platinum-effect metals, and Zegna silk jersey. The ergonomic front seats embrace the occupants providing unparalleled support for any terrain. While in the rear the passengers benefit from an asymmetrically split leather bench seat, up to three occupants are accommodated.
Like all Maseratis the Levante S was built with safety at the forefront and comes with advanced safety innovations, combining both passive and active safety features: six dual-stage airbags; anti-lock brakes; Maserati’s ESC traction and stability control program; active headrests and a tyre-pressure monitoring system.
It also features blind-spot alert, rear cross-path detection, a lane-departure warning system, adaptive cruise control and forward-collision warning, which will monitor traffic ahead and provide additional braking in the event of an emergency stop. The Levante S comes with a surround-view camera providing a 360-degree view to assist with parking and manoeuvring.
