Levante – late 2016
The long-awaited Maserati Levante SUV will make its world premiere at March’s Geneva motor show before storming into Australian showrooms at the very end of 2016.
While Maserati is yet to officially reveal or tease the styling of the Levante, patent sketches and spy shots have already given us a clear indication of what to expect from the new Porsche Cayenne rival.
Expect the Levante to borrow powertrain technology from the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans, likely offering versions of the duo’s 3.0-litre V6 diesel, twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6, and 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engines.
A plug-in hybrid drivetrain has also been rumoured for release further down the track.
