Maserati started to deliver its Levante SUV in the UAE
Maserati Levant after the official world debut at the 2016 Goodwood festival of Speed in the UK now seen as mainstay in the many premium sporting events around the world. The production has started in Turin – Italy, and the distribution has already begun.
Here in the United Arab Emirates, Al Tayer Motors, the official importer-dealer of Maserati in the UAE, and Premier Motors, the official dealer for Maserati in Abu Dhabi, have commenced deliveries of the Maserati Levante in the UAE.
The stunningly designed Levante is available in two variants, the Levante and the Levante S, both featuring latest evolution of the Maserati 3-litre V6 engine with twin turbo. The top of the range Levante S with 430hp makes it to 100km/h in just 5.2” and has a top speed of 264 km/h. The 350hp Levante achieves the 0-100 km/h sprint in 6.0” and a 251km/h top speed. Both versions adopt an eight-speed automatic ZF gearbox with a choice of drive modes: ‘Normal’, ‘I.C.E.’, ‘Sport’ or ‘Off-road’.
The Levante not only promises to deliver on road GT car like performance will excite any sports car driver counting on performance-oriented features, such as the extensive use of lightweight materials, ideal 50-50% weight distribution, the lowest centre of gravity and the best aerodynamic efficiency in its segment. On a par with this, the off-road equipment, including the standard Air Springs, electronically controlled Skyhook shock absorbers and the intelligent Q4 All-Wheel-Drive system, completes a product made to surprise avid travellers and adventure lovers as well.
The Levante also comes with a wide range of new options and content, including: Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, Forward Collision Warning and Brake Assist System, Lane Departure Warning, Surround View camera, a 8.4″ Touch Screen display and a high level of customisation that includes two cutting-edge packages: Luxury and Sport. With the Levante a new wind is blowing through the SUV segment, guaranteeing the passion, flair and exclusivity that have distinguished all Maserati models for over a century.
“We’ve had a lot of interest and even orders since the first reveal of the Levante in the UAE and now finally our customers will be able to test drive it. It’s a beautiful car, no doubt, but only those who have experienced it on-road and off-road can really appreciate its capabilities. Maserati has found a way to achieve amazing functionality and off-road capability while maintaining the style and performance of a real Maserati, as we have come to love them,” said Hossam Hosni, Vice President, Ferrari and Maserati, Al Tayer Motors
