    2017 Maserati Levante Leaked





    Maserati’s upcoming SUV, the Levante, has apparently surfaced on the internet, and it looks like it stays true to the patent images we saw a while back.

    Shortly after Maserati inadvertently announced its intention to finally present the production-version of its first ever SUV – through a leaked teaser – Autoweek.nl got hold of a few pictures of what seems to be the actual model before its official unveiling.

    As expected, the crossover Maser aligns to the car maker’s current design language, being reminiscent of the Ghibli and even the Alfieri concept. Moreover, it respects the design patents that surfaced on the internet last year, although we’re not so certain that the company’s elegant design suits a bulky crossover.

    The Levante is said to come with three engine options – which includes two 3.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V6 gasoline engines, and a 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel, borrowed from its little sibling, the Ghibli. From a performance standpoint, the powerplants could develop exactly same power output as Maserati’s luxury executive saloon, meaning that the two gasoline units will be good for at least 345 hp and 404 hp, respectively (in the “S” variant), while the diesel will settle for 266 hp.

    Not impressed. The head lights look dated.

    Looks quite interesting and should be a good add with the benefit of an exotic name.

    That being said, I'd rather get the F-Pace.

    But you and the 20 others parking your F-Pace's in the Club parking lot will be looking at my lone diamond black Levante with ox-blood leather interior as my advance security team 'arrive' in it just prior to me in my matching colored Bentley Bentayga...

    That looks horrible. The proportions are all wrong. The Kubang Concept had a more upright, traditional SUV shape to it. This is too low to the ground and looks more like a lifted hatch. Not only that, but I'm sure that they dipped into the Chrysler parts bin for the interior like they did with the Ghibli (which is totally unacceptable in a vehicle that can easily reach $100,000).

    Maserati as a whole is just one wasted opportunity after another.

    Bingo! Levante is just a sexier looking version of the Infiniti!

    I really like that, and the combo they have in those photos is excellent. This will be a crucial vehicle for Maserati, likely more than the Ghibli. Its primary rivals probably are the Cayenne, Range Rover Sport, and maybe something like a X6. However, I hope they have an interior that is suitably Maserati. Ghiblis have entirely too much Chrysler in them, nor do they look special enough.

    Hopefully their 3.8TT is offered as a GTS or whatever.

    Why did they rebadge an Infiniti?

    Maserati sucks. Lost its appeal to me. Don't care.

    The grill with the crown seems so overdone, would've made a 1980's/1990's rapper proud to hang that thing around his neck!

    shouldn't it have a Buick badge?

    Looks like a forgettable segment filler.

    The Jag looks way better.
