Equipped with the common-rail, direct injection turbodiesel V6 that delivers 275 hp and 600 Nm of torque from low rpm, the Levante Diesel combines impressive road performance with fuel economy as low as 7.2 litres/100 km.

The Levante 275 hp accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and makes it to 230 km/h even though it emits just 189 g/km of CO2 on the NEDC test cycle.

With the Levante a new wind is blowing through the SUV segment, guaranteeing the passion, the flair and the exclusivity that have distinguished all Maserati models for over a century.

The Maserati Levante is a turning point in Maserati’s history. The brand new model, which makes its World Premiere at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, enables the Trident to access the largest luxury segment in the world. The Levante significantly contributes to the creation of the most complete product line-up in Maserati’s history.

The Levante name was inspired by a warm, Mediterranean wind that can change from mild to gale force in an instant, mirroring the character of the first Maserati SUV.

The Levante is based on the evolution of the sedan platform, designed exclusively by Maserati. The car chassis has been specifically developed to offer unique on-road drivability and competitive off-road capability, with day-to-day comfort and practicality. The top notch Italian SUV was conceived around three main pillars: Design, Exclusivity and Performance. It represents the optimum blend of these three elements in the SUV world.

The Levante’s design is distinctive and attractive, embracing the most valuable aesthetic elements of Italian style. A central asset, its design brings a new concept to the SUV world, combining spaciousness and coupé lines while achieving the best aerodynamic efficiency in its segment with a Cx coefficient of just 0.31.

Its exclusivity stems from technical features like Air Suspension and the Q4 AWD system, which come as standard equipment, and the high level of customisation that includes two cutting-edge packages, Sport and Luxury. The result is a driving experience that is as unique as the Maserati brand and its customers.

The thoroughbred on-road handling typical of all Maserati cars and the solid off-road capabilities, as demanded in the SUV segment, describe the car’s overall ethos. The Levante is here to excite any sports car driver counting on performance-oriented features, such as the extensive use of lightweight materials, ideal 50-50% weight distribution and its lowest in class centre of gravity. Features that deliver unparalleled agility in the luxury SUV class.

The aluminium “double wishbone - five link” suspension layout is comprised of standard Air Springs and electronically controlled Skyhook shock absorbers. In conjunction with the intelligent Q4 All-Wheel-Drive system and the newly introduced Torque Vectoring system which deliver GT on-road behaviour and surprising - for a Maserati - off-road capabilities: the Levante was designed to deliver best in class comfort on rough roads and handling on snow and ice.

On a par with this, the off-road equipment completes a product made to surprise avid travellers and adventure lovers as well.

The Levante Diesel is equipped with the common-rail, direct injection turbodiesel V6 with reduced dwell time injectors. The 3-litre engine is capable of 275 hp and delivers 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and a 230 km/h maximum speed while keeping the fuel economy as low as 7.2 litres/100 km under the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).

The Maserati Levante Diesel adopts the eight-speed automatic ZF gearbox that provides seamless comfort and fast gear shifting, depending on the selected drive mode. The Levante driver can choose between four drive modes, “Normal”, I.C.E., “Sport” and “Off-road”. Each one constitutes a distinct car character intelligently altering engine, transmission, suspension and electronics features.

The Levante introduces several innovations to the current Maserati line-up; from safety to convenience options and through to the brand new Human Machine Interface and the dedicated cargo solutions. The range of equipment options is wider and more complete than ever.

The Levante has entered the SUV segment with a marked advantage in terms of new content. The innovative features of the car include: Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, Forward Collision Warning and Brake Assist System, Lane Departure Warning, Surround View camera, capacitive 8.4" Touch Screen display with brand new rotary control, plus the AHA function, an addition to the Maserati Touch Control Plus which extends the AM, FM and DAB digital radio with a network connection option: the AHA function dialogues with the user's network-connected mobile device to give access to on-line services (radio stations, programmes, etc.) while on the move.

A new state-of-the-art production line was set up exclusively for the Levante in the historic Mirafiori plant, where high quality standards in every area, from design to development and from process controls to fabrication, are applied in full.

Maserati’s more than 100-year tradition of craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology guarantees outstanding quality right down to the tiniest of details.

The 3.0 V6 turbodiesel

Like the Ghibli and Quattroporte, the Levante is also available with a powerful V6 turbodiesel engine.

The 3-litre V6 is manufactured by VM Motori. It develops 202 kw (275 hp) of power and a crushing 600 Nm of torque, 90% of which available below 2,000 rpm. The Levante 275 hp accelerates from    0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and makes it to 230 km/h even though it emits just 189 g/km of CO2 and has a consumption of 7.2 l/100 km on the NEDC test cycle.

The engine uses Common-Rail direct-injection with reduced dwell time-injectors. The maximum injection pressure of the common rail system is 2,000 bar while the system is able to perform up to 8 injections in a single cycle and features Injection Rate Shaping technology. The IRS creates a continuous injection profile that improves performance and reduces emissions, assisted by a sophisticated Exhaust Gas Recirculation system.

Other significant features are a ball bearing variable-geometry turbocharger with variable nozzles and a fabricated exhaust manifold with air-gap. The shaft rotation on ceramic ball bearing of the turbo system reduces friction by 50% and, as a result, reduces turbo lag and improves boost and torque. There is a significant reduction in emissions - 8% less Nitrogen oxides (NOx) and 9% less Hydrocarbons (HC) in the NEDC cycle. Low friction turbo has more benefits, like better cold start behaviour, quicker boost time, significant torque improvements and reduced fuel consumption. 

Using steel instead of cast iron, along with the use of “Air Gap Technology”, means that the engine can reach higher temperatures, improving the air-flow speed to the turbo for even better performance.

The Start & Stop system on the diesel version reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 6%. Start & Stop is automatically disabled in both the “sport” and “ESC off’ modes.

Active Sound exhaust

A thrilling engine sound is essential for every Maserati and the Levante Diesel is no exception thanks to the Maserati Active Sound system. Two sound actuators, fitted near the exhaust tailpipes, accentuate the engine’s most attractive tones and adjust them depending on the way the car is being driven. When the driver presses the “Sport” button, the sound becomes more resonant and remarkably inspirational for a diesel. Just the soundtrack you would expect from a Maserati.
