UK-based car dealership, AMC Presitge Cars, has posted a differently rendered Maserati Levante. The rendering is structurally based on the Kubang concept which will form basis for the production-spec crossover, but appears to have a distinctive front fascia and side profile. The headlamp design, air vents and belt-line are differently done.
The overall design although interesting, is a little different from what we saw in patent images of the production model in May.
The Levante will be a 5-seat crossover rivaling the Porsche Cayenne and the BMW X5. Its range is also likely to include a high-performance variant to rival with the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the BMW X5 M.
It was reported in May that the Maserati Levante will be unveiled at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (2016 Detroit Auto Show) that opens on January 11. Its price will start at around €90,000 for the base model and go up to €200,000 for the range-topping model.
Engine options will include a 350-hp V6 diesel, 450-hp V6 petrol and a 580-hp V8 petrol, while four-wheel drive will come standard. Earlier reports said that a plug-in hybrid version will be launched in H2 2017.
The Italian marque’s first crossover will be built at the FCA Group’s Mirafiori plant in Turin, Italy.
