Maserati announces petrol-powered Levante S

After releasing their first luxury SUV in 2016, Maserati has announced a new petrol-powered version for the UK in the form of the Levante S

By adding a Ferrari-built 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 to the off-road orientated frame, the Levante S offers a top speed of 164mph and has a 0-60mph time of 5.0 seconds. The 430bhp engine is paired with Maserati’s Q4 all-wheel drive system to help take this performance off-road.

This model joins the standard Levante that is fitted with a 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel and produces 275bhp. It is also fitted with active air suspension that provides five various ride heights and gives the Levante the lowest centre of gravity in the luxury SUV sector.

Peter Denton – Maserati’s North Europe region manager – said: “Following the launch of the diesel-powered Levante in the UK, it became clear there is also a demand for the luxury SUV in a petrol-powered version. With the Levante now available in the UK with our V6, 430bhp petrol engine, we can offer the performance synonymous with Maserati along with the great off-road capabilities and sophistication we designed when creating the Levante.”

The Levante is distinctly designed like a Maserati with the side intakes and instantly recognisable trident on the front grille. With the taller stance and well-designed four-wheel drive, the Levante is an excellent choice in the luxury SUV sector.

To help keep you on the road, the Levante comes with hill holder, hill descent control and adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go function, as well as lane departure warning, park assist and rear view and surround view camera.

Coming soon to our showroom, the Levante S starts from £70,755 and has a multitude of optional extras to make your model your own. For more information on the Levante S, contact the JCT600 Maserati Centre in Leeds
