Maserati unveils its new Levante luxury SUV

Maserati has officially revealed its hotly anticpated Levante SUV. The car was unveiled at a star-studded event at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London.

The evening was hosted by TV and radio presenter Lisa Snowdon, who was joined by Giulio Pastore, Maserati Europe’s general manager.

Guests included Alex James, Olivia Grant, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Leigh-Anne Pinnock. Music was provide by celebrity DJ duo Amber Le Bon and Becky Tong.

The Levante launch began with the official unveiling of the car in front of the crowd. Reportage artist Anna-Louise Felstead was also on hand to paint a real-time canvas depicting the Levante in front of a London skyline in her signature style.

The new Levante is Maserati’s first luxury SUV and will be made in a custom-built production line at the historic Mirafiori plant. The name Levante derives from a warm Mediterranean wind that can quickly change from mild to gale force, which mirrors the Levante’s character.

The car’s new design features Maserati’s distinct Italian style with coupé lines, combined with the spaciousness of an SUV. It features standard active air suspension which can create five varying ride heights for luxurious comfort.

Meanwhile the 3 litre V6 Turbodiesel engine provides significant power and the signature Maserati sound. The eight-speed automatic transmission makes for fast, seamless gear changes. It can be set to four different drive modes including ‘sport’ and ‘off-road’.

And the new Levante SUV comes with a raft of safety features such as cruise control, brake assist, lane departure warning and forward collision warning. It also has surround cameras for easy parking.

Prices for the Levante Diesel SUV will start at £54,335 OTR. There are two upgrade options with a Luxury or Sport pack priced at £60,285 OTR. Or the new Levante can be equipped with the Luxury Pack Zegna Edition, costing £61,185 OTR and featuring bespoke Zegna Mulberry Silk.

The new Levante SUV will be on sale in the UK from June, with the first deliveries expected in the autumn.
